Gluten-Free Plum Crisp
2 pounds plums, halved, pitted and sliced (no need to peel)
⅓ cup honey
2 Tbsp. arrowroot starch or 3 Tbsp. cornstarc½ teaspoon cinnamon
½ tsp. cinnamon
1 cup old-fashioned oats
½ cup almond meal or almond flour, lightly packed
⅓ cup chopped pistachios, almonds or walnuts
⅓ cup lightly packed brown sugar
1 tsp ground ginger
¼ tsp fine grain sea salt
4 Tbsp. butter, melted
3 Tbsp. plain yogurt (regular or Greek)
1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. In a 9-by-9-inch baking dish, mix together the sliced plums, honey, arrowroot or cornstarch and cinnamon.
2. In a medium mixing bowl, stir together the oats, almond meal or flour, pistachios, brown sugar, ginger and salt. Mix in the melted butter and yogurt. Stir until the mixture is moistened throughout.
3. Dollop spoonfuls of the oat mixture over the filling and use your fingers to break up the mixture until it is evenly distributed (no need to pack it down). Bake for 55 minutes, or until the filling is bubbling around the edges and the top is lightly golden. Let the crisp rest for 5 to 10 minutes before serving. Serve with vanilla ice cream or plain yogurt.
