Hello “This Silly Girl’s Kitchen” readers, it’s me Celeste from The Whole Serving, back with a quick and simple no-bake crumble recipe.

Can you believe summer is almost over, at least according to the calendar. I for one am looking forward to the cooler temps that are coming in the Fall, but until then I’m enjoying the last of the summer fruits, and this no-bake recipe is just what’s needed to help keep your cool while the thermometer still say it’s summer.

Plums have been a staple in my house lately, plump, juicy and sweet. But sometimes they ripen faster than I can eat them, so when this happens I make smoothies, freeze or cook them. For this recipe I paired ripe plums with ripe blueberries. Together they’re delicious and can be used as a fruit topping over cereal, toast, pancakes, yogurt or ice cream.

I made this blueberry sauce a few days before I got the idea to add it to the plum sauce and I used it over ice cream. So, so delicious.

I decided to do something a bit different this go round. I made this date, almond and oat crumble, which I eat alone or over a big bowl of fruit and non-dairy yogurt. Warning, it’s hard to not eat a bowl full off this stuff.

I like to have mine over non-dairy yogurt.

Or just enjoy with a dollop of whipped coconut cream. However you choose to enjoy it this stuff is deliciously good and a great way to enjoy some end of season fruits.

    Looks fantastic! I just spent a day canning apple pie filling with a friend and was thinking it would be awesome if I could find some sort of crumble recipe to put over the top of it. Problem solved! My daughter is insisting that we try this recipe NOW 😉
