A delightful twist to the ordinary crumble with fresh plums combined with a quinoa and oat crust making it a warming dessert that will melt your heart.

  1. Preheat the oven to Gas Mark 4, 180°C, fan 160°C and grease an ovenproof dish. 
  2. Place the oats, quinoa flour and sugar in a food processor and blend to combine. Add the cubed butter and pulse until the breadcrumb consistency is achieved. Spread this mix over a piece of nonstick baking paper and put into the oven for 10 minutes while you make the roast plums.
  3. In a bowl, mix together the lemon juice and caster sugar and pour into the dish. Place the plums in the dish, pour the lightly toasted crumble topping on top and put it into the oven.
  4. Bake for 20 to 25 minutes until the fruit is bubbling and the crumble topping has turned a golden brown.
