I love how the sweet crunchy topping compliments the tartness of the plums. I like to serve this dessert warm with a scoop of vanilla ice cream. If you want to make this crisp gluten-free you can swap out the flour with either almond meal or almond flour. 


  • 10 Cups Sliced Plums
  • 8 Tablespoons Sugar
  • 1/4 Cup Lemon Juice
  • 1 Cup Regular Rolled Oats
  • 1 Cup Packed Brown Sugar
  • 1/2 Cup Unbleached Flour
  • 1/2 Teaspoon Nutmeg
  • 1 Teaspoon Cinnamon
  • 1/2 Cup Butter
