Xylitol Plum and Cinnamon Crumble

Serves: 6 Cooking time: 35 MINUTES
Xylitol Plum and Cinnamon Crumble

For the crumble:

  • 100g (4oz) plain wholemeal flour
  • 75g (3oz) Total Sweet Xylitol Taste before cooking – add more if you prefer a sweeter crumble
  • 100g (4oz) softened butter
  • 100g (4oz) oats

For the filling:

  • 1kg (2.2lb) plums, halved and stoned
  • 50g (2oz) Total Sweet Xylitol Depending on the sweetness of the plums and personal taste
  • 3 tsp ground cinnamon

This comfort food classic is given a healthier twist
through the use of wholemeal flour, oats and
Total Sweet Xylitol. The whole grains also give
the topping a chewy almost flapjack like texture
whilst cinnamon adds flavour as well as possible
health benefits.


  1. Preheat the oven to 180C fan/350F/ gas mark 4.
  2. Blend the flour, Total Sweet and butter in a food processor to combine into thick crumbs then lightly blitz the oats into the mixture.
  3. Put the prepared plums in the base of a high sided oven proof dish so that they more than cover the base.
  4. Sprinkle with the Total Sweet and cinnamon then scatter the crumble evenly over the top.
  5. Bake for around 35 minutes or until the crumble starts to look golden and fruit is bubbling and soft underneath.
