Plum and almond crumble slice anyone? Yes Please! 😋
I wasn’t planning on posting a recipe. With these uncertain times we’re facing have got me emotional eating, and I just have not been able to restrain myself, or the kids from all the goodies I’ve been making.
But this was soooo good, I resisted the urge to eat the whole tray, and instead opted to share it with you all for the greater good, so you too can bring some of this delicious goodness into your life… 😂 😂😂.
OK, so I may have eaten a slice…😅🤤🤣
We’re currently in Autumn, and I’m savouring the last lingering batch of sweet, sweet plums I have.
Especially now that I’m trying to keep going to the grocery shops to a minimum.
Sadly I left these plums on the counter a little too long, and they are way too soft for my liking.
But never fear, they are the perfect sweetness for these delicious plum and almond crumble slice 🙌🏻🙌🏻🙌🏻.
I didn’t want to waste these heavenly plums, so I got to baking, plus I needed something to keep the kids busy during our self isolation at home 😅.
And boy was it a good idea, because these plum and almond crumble slices are so quick, and easy to make, the kids were even able to make a second batch on there own 🙌🏻.
Soft, chewy, full of plum flavour, with a lovely buttery biscuit base, and absolutely delicious is how I would describe these plum and almond crumble slice.
Being slices, they are the perfect bite size bars to have on the go or leisurely with a hot cuppa.
Not A Plum Fan? Don’t Have Plums?
Don’t worry, this recipe is very simply and can easily be adapted with any fruit you have available.
Blueberry, rhubarb, strawberries, pear, apple, blood oranges, the possibilities are endless 🤤.
I’ve got some rhubarb in the garden, and I know just what I’m going to make with them 😋.

Plum and almond crumble Slice? Yes Please! Soft, chewy, with a lovely buttery biscuit base, and absolutely delicious is how I would describe these slice.
- 200 grams vegan butter
- 220 grams caster sugar
- 300 grams almond meal
- 150 grams plain flour
- 25 grams plain flour
- 2 tbs ground flaxseed
- 6 tbs water
- 1 tsp grounded cinnamon
- 1 tsp baking powder
- 300 grams plums Roughly 6 medium size plums, chopped
- 50 grams almond flakes
- 1 tbsp coconut sugar
- 1/2 tsp grounded nutmeg
- 1/2 tsp grounded cinnamon
Preheat oven to 180°C or 355°F
In a food processor, pulse butter, caster sugar, and almond meal together till mixture resemble bread crumbs.
Spoon half of the mixture into a medium size mixing bowl and set aside to make filling.
Add the 150g of plain flour into the food processor with the remaining mixture and mix on high till a dough forms or till ingredients are combined.
Place dough mixture into a lined brownie tray, and gently spread and press the dough mixture evenly into the tray.
I used a 20cm x 30cm brownie tray.
Place tray into the oven and bake for 15-20 mins or until golden brown.
Once ready remove pastry from oven and leave to cool in tray for 10 min.
Prepare flax egg by combining grounded flaxseed, and water together. Then let it thicken, roughly 5 min.
Place remaining butter, sugar and almond meal filling back into the food processor, and add the flax egg mixture, cinnamon, baking powder, 25g of plain flour and mix into a smooth batter.
Remove batter and spread over cooled biscuit base.
Place the chopped plums ontop of the batter, and gently press the plums into the batter.
Sprinkle 1 tbsp of coconut sugar, 1/2 tsp of cinnamon, 1/2 tsp of nutmeg and almond flakes over the batter.
Cover the tray in foil and bake for 20 min, then remove cover and bake for another 20 min or until batter comes out clean with a prick test.
Remove crumble slice from oven and leave to cool in tray before slicing.
Sprinkle with a bit of icing sugar if desired 👌🏻
