  • 2 pounds plums, pitted, and halved or quartered
  • 1/2 cup cane sugar
  • 2 tablespoons corn starch
  • 1/4 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1 teaspoon lemon zest, plus 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 2 cups ground gluten-free oats or store-bought oat flour
  • 2 tablespoons corn meal
  • 3/4 cup cane sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon sea salt
  • 8 tablespoons unsalted butter, softened
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees Butter a 9 x 9-inch baking dish and set aside.
  2. In a large bowl, gently toss plums with sugar, corn starch, sea salt, and lemon zest and juice, and set aside.
  3. If making your own oat flour, grind oats on high in the bowl of a food processor or in batches in a coffee grinder until mixture is relatively smooth and flour-like. In a medium bowl, combine oat flour, cornmeal, sugar, and sea salt. Add butter, and rub into oat mixture with fingertips until mixture has a sandy, clumpy texture and is well combined.
  4. Spoon plum filling into prepared baking dish. Top with oat mixture. Bake 40 - 45 minutes, or until crisp topping is golden and filling is bubbling vigorously.
  5. Serve, warm or at room temperature, with vanilla ice cream.
