Gratinée: Gluten-Free Blueberry Plum Crumble

This juicy blueberry plum crumble is gluten free. My blog, Gratinée, is a reflection of what I like to eat, but it’s certainly not what I eat every day – which definitely falls more in the domain of clean eating than comfort food. I use ingredients like almond meal and coconut sugar, but for the folks who want to stick by the regular pantry standbys, I also give you the regular way of making this classic dessert.
