This tasty treat is a gluten free, vegan dessert from Clean Start by Terry Walters. I don’t have much of a sweet tooth but this recipe just kept calling my name. I decided to give it a try. And boy it did not disappoint. I had to make a couple of substitutions because I couldn’t for the life of me find 2 items anywhere I went. But it came out sinfully delicious anyway. I gladly share it with you all! Enjoy!


FILLING

  • 21⁄2 pounds plums (10–12)
  • 1⁄2 cup dried currants
  • 2–3 dashes ground nutmeg
  • Pinch of sea salt
  • 1⁄4 cup maple syrup
  • 1⁄4 cup ivory teff flour (I used gluten free all purpose flour)

CRISP

  • 1 cup almond meal
  • 1 cup ivory teff flour (I used gluten free all purpose flour)
  • 1⁄4 cup sliced almonds
  • Pinch of ground nutmeg
  • Pinch of sea salt
  • 1⁄4 cup virgin coconut oil (I used almond oil)
  • 1⁄4 cup maple syrup
  • 1⁄2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • Preheat oven to 350°F.

PREPARING FILLING

Leaving skins on, halve plums, remove and discard pits and slice into thin wedges (about 1⁄4 inch thick). Place in large mixing bowl and set aside.

In small pot over medium heat, place currants with just enough water to cover, bring to boil and simmer 5 minutes to soften and plump. Drain well and add to bowl with plums. Add nutmeg and salt, and stir. Add maple syrup and teff flour and stir until plums are evenly coated and ingredients are combined. Pour mixture into 8 x8-inch casserole and set aside.

PREPARING CRISP

Using same mixing bowl, combine almond meal, teff flour, almonds, nutmeg and salt. Over low heat, melt coconut oil in small skillet. Remove from heat, whisk in maple syrup and vanilla and pour over flour mixture. Stir to combine and crumble over plum mixture.

Bake 45 minutes or until top is golden brown and plums are soft. Remove from oven, and cool slightly before serving.
