Healthier Plum Crumble

Here in Utah many people enjoy gardening and those of us who don't often reap the bounty of their abundant produce. (Score for us!) When one of these gardening gurus gave us a bag full of plums I wanted to make a plum crumble, but we've been eating healthier, so I wanted to give it a healthy spin. So here's what we did...


1 c. oatmeal
1/4 c. flax seed, ground
1/4 c. walnuts, chopped
1/4 c. peanut or almond butter
1/4 c. honey
1 t. cinnamon
pinch of salt
12 small or 6 large plums, sliced
1 T. cornstarch


  1. Preheat oven to 350F
  2. Grease four ramekins
  3. Mix first seven ingredients
  4. Toss sliced plums in the cornstarch and put in the bottom of the ramekins. 
  5. Top with crumble topping
  6. Bake until filling is bubbling and thickened and the topping is crisp. 
  7. Top with a dollop of greek yogurt (not included in calorie count below) and enjoy. 

P.S. It was delicious. 
P.P.S. You can make this with most fruits. 
P.P.S.S. We ate it for breakfast. LOL.

Now calorically, of course you'd be better off eating an egg-white omelette, but compared to a traditional crumble you're doing great. Also, check out the percentage of you daily fiber - 26%(!) that's over a quarter of your daily requirement in a dessert! Plus, 9.2 grams of protein in a dessert is respectable, not to mention 20% of your iron requirement, and there's plenty of heart healthy fats in here.
