There were several varieties of plums at the market and I came home with these beauties! Super juicy, they were perfect for eating but I had a crisp to make.
How to make a plum and oatmeal crisp
Wash, dry and slice the plums, discarding the pits. As you can see, these plums were just so juicy. I included the liquid in the recipe and it probably made the crisp a little thinner but it really wasn’t a problem.
Making the crumb topping
In a medium-sized bowl, add 1/2 cup flour, 1 cup packed light-brown sugar, 1/2 cup rolled oats and 1/4 teaspoon salt.
Give a stir to combine.
Add the cubed butter pieces.
Using a pastry blender or two knives, cut in the butter until coarse crumbs form.
In a shallow 2-quart baking dish, toss the plums with the remaining 2 tablespoons of brown sugar and the remaining 1 tablespoon of flour. If you want, you could sprinkle in a little cinnamon or ground nutmeg. I’ve done both and it is good either way.
Adding the crumb topping
The mixture is ready for the topping.
Sprinkle the oat topping evenly over the plum mixture. Bake at 375 degrees for 40 to 45 minutes until the topping is golden brown
Allow the crisp 20 minutes to cool before serving.

I made this last night. Read the recipe wrong and put in white sugar instead of the brown…. but I have to say – THIS WAS AMAZING. Thanks for sharing!
that looks amazingly delicious. It also reminded me of the plum tree that my grandparents had in their yard when I was a kid. I used to love to go out there and pick one and have a little snack

Looks really good and reminds me of my father! He loved plums and loved for my mother to make him a dish his family use to eat during the war in Germany. It looks similar to this dish! Thanks for the memory! Hope you're doing good!

Thanks Lorraine, I have some really right plums and I'm going to try this with almond flour and stevia and see if it turns out as pretty as yours!
