Better and easier than a plum crisp, skip turning on the oven by cooking the plums just on the stove. The ideal summer dessert is fresh, juicy, not overly sweet, and not overly complicated, which is why this end-of-season treat features only 6 ingredients. The plums cook just long enough to soften slightly and release their juices; use a knife and fork to dive in. Sub any toasted nut or seed for the granola. 


Serves 4 (serving size: 3 plum halves, 2 tbsp. yogurt, about 1 tbsp. sauce, and 1 tbsp. granola)


+ Add To Shopping List
