4 Medium Sized Red or Black Plums, just barely ripe
4 teaspoons All Purpose Gluten-Free Flour Blend
1 Tablespoon Coconut Palm Sugar
1 teaspoon Cinnamon
1 teaspoon Vanilla Extract
4 Tablespoons Coconut Oil – measured, for this purpose only, in solid form – **See Note below
½ cup Certified Gluten Free Rolled Oats (or equal amounts Quinoa Flakes if you are sensitive to Oats)
¼ cup Almond flour (For NUT FREE: use additional ¼ cup of your gluten free flour blend instead)
¼ cup Gluten Free All Purpose Flour blend
1 – 2 Tablespoons ground Chia seeds, or Flax meal (optional, but nice addition of Omega 3?s)
⅓ cup Palm sugar
2 teaspoons Ground Cinnamon
¼ teaspoon Celtic Sea Salt
Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Lightly grease four 6-ounce Ramekins.
In small bowl, mix together filling ingredients: Plums, 4 tsp Flour Blend, Coconut Palm Sugar, Cinnamon, and Vanilla. Divide evenly between your ramekins.
In another bowl add your chilled Coconut oil, Certified Gluten Free Oats, Almond flour, ¼ cup Gluten Free All Purpose Flour, Ground Chia or Flax Meal (if using), Coconut Palm Sugar, and Sea Salt. Use a pastry blender (or a fork) to crumble/cream your ingredients together until coarse meal forms.
Divide topping evenly among each ramekin. Place ramekins on a baking sheet and place in the oven for 25 minutes (filling may bubble over – you can line baking sheet with foil for easy clean up, if desired). If you like a crispy top, you can turn the broiler on for 2-3 minutes at the very end, but watch VERY carefully if you do this so it does not burn!
Measurements for Coconut Oil should typically, in most baking recipes, be measured in liquid form for the correct volume measurement.
