Vegan plum crumble with oats delicious and easy-to-make dessert. The most popular version is with apples. Personally, I like crumble with plums a bit more but the truth is you can also use pears or even frozen raspberries. My recipe is, as always, without sugar. You want some?
When I bake vegan plum crumble with oats, I use unrefined cocoa butter. It gives a delicate chocolate flavour and it tastes perfectly with plums or slightly sour raspberries. You can also use a different kind of fat. I’m not a big fan of vegan margarine and I always try to choose products with the simplest ingredients – no additives, no preservatives and no antioxidants! Cocoa butter is a natural product and one of the main ingredients of chocolate. However, it’s quite calorific so people with obesity problems should avoid it.

I always bake things for a shorter period of time to limit a formation of harmful acrylamide.
In winter I use frozen raspberries instead of plums. I wash them in a sieve until they melt and I put them in smaller baking containers (for one serving) and I bake them for about 15-20 minutes.
It’s a really cool dessert, which tastes warm best, e.g. with a scoop of vegan chocolate ice-cream.
