Recipe by Boomette
A recipe from Ricardo. ETA : I made it and since I didn't have enough plums (I had 7 plums but it gave me only 3 cups), I added frozen raspberries. It's a different crumble with the almond powder and the almonds. Different than with oat but it's so good.

Made the recipe as given & we thoroughly enjoyed the combo of plum & almond! So far this year I've usually had poor luck getting nice tasting plums, but stopped at the Farmers' Market just before making this & the plums were absolutely great & made for an outstanding crumble! Thanks for providing this great recipe! [Tagged & made in Please Review My Recipe]
