Maple Roasted Plums with Greek Yogurt and Ginger Almond & Cashew Granola
Thanks to an old and sturdy plum tree on my family’s property, I have an abundance of plums this summer. I’ve frozen a few pounds and shared a bag with the swim coach but I feel like I’m not making a dent in my stash.
I’ve googled “things to make with plums” and had a hard time finding a recipe that really excited me until I came across this recipe in the July issue of Real Simple.
I’ve made a few alterations to the original Real Simple recipe. For example I use both brown sugar and granulated sugar to coat my plums before roasting, and instead of topping with toasted walnuts I topped my creation with one of my favorite pantry staples: Trader Joe’s Ginger Almond & Cashew Granola Cereal.
My oldest and I polished these plums off… and basically licked the skillet clean.
- 2 tabelspoons butter
- 4 plums, halved and pits removed
- 1 teaspoon granulated sugar
- 1 teaspoon light brown sugar
- 1/3 cup maple syrup
- 2 cups Greek Yogurt
- 3/4 cup Ginger Almond and Cashew Granola Cereal
- In a small cast-iron skillet, melt the butter over medium-high heat.
- Sprinkle the plums halves with the granulated and brown sugars.
- Place the plums cut side down in the the skillet with the melted butter.
- Cook for 2-3 minutes until the plums are browned.
- Reduce heat to medium and cook for another 5 minutes until the plums are soft.
- Transfer cooked plums to a plate leaving the juices in the skillet.
- Add the maple syrup to the skillet and stir to combine.
- Add the plums back to the pan. At this point you can keep the plums warm in the syrup or refrigerate for up to 2 days.
- Divide the Greek yogurt among 4 bowls, (1/2 cup each bowl) and top with 2 plums. Drizzle with syrup and top with granola.
