I love the marriage of apples and plums and this gluten-free and vegan crumble ticks all the boxes for us!
Give me crumble and I’m happy. I actually learnt to make this during my GCSEs and baked as a stress-reliever.
Quick, easy to make with little fingers that love creating the crumble effect, this is perfect comfort food without the guilt! Enjoy!

- 6 large red plums, stoned
- 2 tbsp maple syrup

In a mixing bowl, combine the flour, oats coconut, sugar, remaining coconut oil or vegan margrine and form a crumble mixing the oil/vegan butter evenly into the ingredients to create small clumps.
