Plum and Oats Crumble in Salty Caramel Sauce

This is a super quick and healthy dessert which can even be your breakfast if you fancy. The color and tartness of the plums add a different level to the dish and hence my fruit of choice. However, you can definitely make this with peaches or pears as well. I have replaced sugar with honey which makes it super healthy.

PREPARATION TIME: 10 minutes
COOKING TIME: 10- 12 minutes
SERVINGS: 2
DIFFICULTY SCALE: Low

  1. Oats – ½ cup
  2. Almonds – 10-12, diced
