Rhubarb and Plum Crumble

Rhubarb and Plum Crumble

We asked a few of our friend’s what they definitely DON’T WANT on Mother’s Day and let us know if you can relate to anything on this list:

To not have to do any laundry

To not have to referee any arguments

To not have to repeat a sentence

To not have to drive anywhere

To not have to share the bathroom with anyone else

To not have to miss their workout

To not have to make slime (or clean it up)

To not have to make any meals (planning, shopping and clean-up is included in this)

If you can relate to one or more of these, then you deserve to have someone make you this easy crumble recipe. It not entirely healthy for you, but we also definitely don’t want to worry about having dessert.

  • ½ cup + 2 Tbsps brown sugar
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • ¼ tsp salt
  • 1/3 cup pecans, chopped
  • ½ cup butter, melted

Preheat the oven to 375 degrees.

Toss together the flour, oats, ½ cup of brown sugar, cinnamon, salt and nuts until everything is well combined.

In a small bowl, mix together melted butter and 2 Tbsp maple syrup. Pour over the oat mixture and stir until it becomes evenly moist. Set aside.

Place your chopped plums and rhubarb, lemon juice, 1/3 cup of maple syrup, 2 Tbsp of brown sugar and flour in a bowl and give it all a good toss. Pour the fruit into an 8” x 8” baking pan. Top with the crumble. Don’t worry if it doesn’t cover the fruit perfectly.

Bake for 30 to 35 minutes until the topping is golden brown and the fruit is bubbling. Allow to cool for a few minutes before serving.
