Nutritional Bonus:

You wouldn't know from their sweet flavor, but plums are a good source of dietary fiber. While leafy greens are a known source of vitamin K, you may be surprised to find that purple powerhouse plums also contain the heart-protecting nutrient, which may help reduce your risk of Alzheimer's disease.

Ingredients

  • 4 large plums, pitted and sliced
  • Juice 1/2 lemon
  • 1/2 tsp pure vanilla extract
  • 2 tsp raw honey
  • 1/2 cup spelt flour, divided
  • 1/2 cup old-fashioned rolled oats
  • 3 tbsp organic evaporated cane juice
  • 2 tbsp olive oil buttery spread (TRY: Earth Balance Buttery Spread with Olive Oil)
  • 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 6 tsp nonfat plain Greek yogurt, optional

Preparation

  1. Preheat oven to 375°F. Place plums in an 8 x 8-inch baking dish. Drizzle with lemon juice, vanilla, honey and 1 tbsp flour; toss to coat.
  2. In a medium bowl, combine remaining flour, oats, cane juice, buttery spread and cinnamon; blend with a pastry blender or 2 butter knives until crumbly. Spread mixture evenly over plums. Bake on middle rack in oven until golden on top, about 20 to 25 minutes.
  3. Remove from oven and let cool slightly. Divide evenly among 6 serving dishes. Top each with 1 tsp yogurt, if desired.
