Plum Cobbler with an Oatmeal Crumble

This plum cobbler/any-fruit-you-want cobbler is a simple formula. First, pick out your favorite fruit. I got these gorgeous plums at the Larchmont Farmers Market in LA.

Quarter and remove the pits. Chop into about 1-inch cubes if you’re using fruit that needs chopping. Next, sweeten and thicken a fruit mixture with sugar (or Splenda) and cornstarch.

Then, make a topping for the plum cobbler with a mixture of flour + fat. Here, I did whole wheat flour and oats mixed with light sour cream, a little bit of butter (less butter than the normal cobbler recipe you may see out there, making this a little bit healthier than other options), a pinch of salt, and that’s nearly it. Bake for about 40 minutes and serve either as-is or with a dollop of yogurt or ice cream. Yay healthy fruit cobbler recipes!

Hope you love this plum cobbler and that you utilize it to make it with any type of fruit you want in the future!

Fruit filling

  • 3 cups of any stone fruit you want in about 1/2 inch cubes. Plums, peaches, berries, apricots, you name it!
  • 1/2 lemon juice
  • 2 tbsp of sugar or sugar substitute
  • 1 tsp of cornstarch

Oatmeal crumble

  • 1/2 cup whole wheat flour
  • 1/4 cup oats
  • 1/4 cup light sour cream or fat-free Greek yogurt
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 2 tbsp brown sugar
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 3 tbsp cold unsalted butter, cubed


  • Preheat oven to 350F
  • Combine the filling materials in a bowl and then slide into a small casserole dish
  • Combine the topping in a bowl – flour, oats, sugar, baking soda and baking powder, salt – then add in the butter. Using your fingers, press and combine the flour and butter together so that butter is the size of peas and is well combined, but still visible chunks of butter. Then, stir in sour cream until combined. Plop on top of the fruit and arrange rustic-ly.
  • Bake for 40 minutes, until bubbling and the top is brown and delicious.
