Wheat-Free Apple and Plum Crumble


apple and plum crumble-Honest Mum

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!


Serves 6

  • 3 large apples, cored, thinly sliced length-ways
  • 6 large red plums, stoned
  • water
  • 125g gluten-free flour
  • 80g oats
  • 100g brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 240ml coconut oil
  • coconut oil for greasing


Preheat oven to 180°C.

Grease a medium ovenproof dish with 1 tbsp coconut oil. Set aside.

In a medium pan place the apples and plums covered with some water, syrup and cinnamon. Cook for 6 minutes until caramelised.

Place in the greased dish.

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

Scatter mixture over apple and plum base covering fully.

Bake in the oven for 35 minutes until golden brown or crispy.

Dust with remaining cinnamon.

Set aside to cool for 5 minutes then serve.

    Love this recipe. It sounds so delicious. If you are trying to stay away from refined sugar you should try coconut sugar. I use it now as a treat is desserts and its really delicious.

    Love the fact you’ve added coconut to the crumble, I’m going through a bit of a coconut phase at the moment and I’m sneaking it into all sorts (probably a few things I shouldn’t).In fact I’ve got so tropical cookies in the oven at the moment.

    YUM. I love oat crumbles! I’ve never tried wheat free oats, do you find them any different to bake with regular oats?
