Plum topping


  • 3 cups plums, destined and quartered
  • 1/3 cup fresh orange juice
  • 2 tablespoons corn flour
  • 2 tablespoons real maple syrup
  • Splash water

Crumble base


  • 2 cups rolled oats
  • 1 1/2 cups almond meal
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/3 cup real maple syrup
  • 1/3 cup butter or coconut oil


  • Step 1

    A splash of water to a saucepan followed by the remaining plum topping ingredients. Bring to a simmer, then cook on low heat for around 7-10 mins, regularly mixing + mashing with a fork to help break up the plums. At the end you should have a thick jammy consistency, but with lots of fruit lumps. Turn off heat and cool.

  • Step 2

    Preheat oven to 180C. grease + line a tin 20cm square tin, or something around this size. Set aside.

  • Step 3

    Gently melt butter or oil in a saucepan over a low flame. Turn off the heat and pour into a large mixing bowl with remaining base ingredients. Mix well. Add 3/4 of this to the lined tray. Use a spoon to thin out, and create the base. It’ll be a thin layer, so don’t worry if it seems like a stretch. Top with cool plum mixture, then crumble the remaining oat mixture on top. Bake for 30 minutes.

  • Step 4

    Allow to completely cool in the pan for 10 mins before removing IF you want to serve it warm (with yoghurt or ice cream). Otherwise, cool completely in tin
