I made this topping for some plums from the garden and it was lovely. I agreed the slight hint of cinnamon is a nice touch. I also added a tablespoon of organic elderflower cordial to the plums when they were cooking which adds a lovely fragrance to the fruit.

A pretty tasty topping! I would cut down on the butter, as it tasted a little too much like it. Also, I added a bit more sugar and oats as I couldn't taste them. A nice addition to my yogurt, though, and scrumptious on my tarts! Thank you for posting!

Just what in was loking for. An oat crumble mix. I used light margarine instead of butter. The cinnamon is a great touch. A keeper, thanks.
