Humble Fruit Crumble
The Fall is the quintessential time to have crumble. This one I made with plums but it is equally good with the beautiful apples that are flooding markets now. The crispy topping is made totally grain and dairy free by using chopped nuts and coconut oil. It would make a lovely Thanksgiving dessert topped with some ice cream. This recipe is only slightly sweet and with all that fruit, it totally doubles as a breakfast food possibly served with a dollop of yogurt.
