What do you when you’ve got a bucket load of plums 😅

While we only had a couple plums on our plum tree this year (3 🙈 as we only just planted it), my parents had bucket loads on theirs. We don’t really do jam in our house, so I put my thinking cap on make sure I made use of all the delicious fruit!

Mum and Dad had an apple orchard,  soI often used to stew the apples and make healthy apple crumbles. So I decided to make a ‘plum crumble’.

Verdict: A success! 👏🏼


I just stewed the fruit with some water and cinnamon. Then made a topping –


  • ½ cup almond meal
  • 1/2 cup coconut flakes
  • 2 tbsp hemp seeds
  • 1 tbsp sunflower seeds
  • 1 tbsp flaxseeds
  • 1 tbsp chia seeds
  • 2-3 tbsp spoons of melted coconut oil (or enough to bind the mixture)
  • 2-3 tbsp of honey melted

I always guess my amounts, so just use your own judgement…


  • Place stewed plums (or apples also work brilliantly) into baking dish
  • Layer with crumble
  • Bake in oven at 180 degrees until Golden


I was chatting with a friend the other day and it reminded me to get my gummies back up! So, I used some of the stewed plum with gelatine to make some tummy friendly gummies for Henry (A perfect lollie – which we don’t do in our house) for kiddies with the healing health benefits of gelatine.

Super easy to make.
