Wheatless Wednesday – Santa Rosa Plum Crisp

Its plum season and it’s a doozy this year! You might call it a bumper crop and they are abundant in markets or in neighborhood back yards. Take advantage of nature’s bounty and make a stone fruit crisp for a simple 4th of July or summer dessert. Other stone fruits are in season right now like peaches, cherries and nectarines. Crisps are very forgiving to make as there is little that can go wrong, no crust to make or fruit to arrange. Just cut up your favorite fruit, sprinkle it with a yummy topping and bake. I’m making this tomorrow but in individual ramekins as a food safety precaution. They are also easier to serve but they are cute too!.

The beauty of this dessert is it’s simplicity. This recipe is easily made vegan and gluten free and for a dessert, it’s pretty nutritious. The oats and almond flour combined with the fruit and dates are loaded with vitamins and minerals ( and fiber, of course). As an added bonus, your kitchen will smell divine! Happy 4th!
