Author Notes: Plums were actually a last minute addition to this crumble recipe, which I found in a newly-acquired cookbook. The yellow and red globe plums appeared in my CSA share. The whole-wheat flour in this recipe adds an extra helping of fiber and healthy goodness!newRDcook

Food52 Review: WHO: NewRDcook is a dietitian in Philadelphia.
WHAT: A simple crumble that you can make with fresh fruits and pantry staples.
HOW: Sweeten blueberries and chopped plums with a little sugar, top with a whole-wheat crumble, and bake everything until the crumb top is golden brown and the smell of baking fruit is intoxicating.
WHY WE LOVE IT: This crumble is a great place to tuck away your summer fruit that’s a little too tart to eat on its own. Make sure to save some leftovers for breakfast the next morning: It’s wholesome enough (whole-wheat flour! 7 ingredients!) to eat morning, noon, and night.
