Sugar and Oil Free Plumcot Buckle
I was in the baking mood today and I had a big bag of plumcots that I had bought at Trader Joe's that I needed to use up somehow. I decided they would be great in a buckle, but there are not any plumcot buckle recipes out there haha.
I found a blueberry buckle recipe and tweeked it to make it sugar and oil free. Replacing oil with applesauce and sugar with stevia, it is easier than you make think to make a decadent treat healthy.
If you do not have plumcots on hand, you can easily replace them with any type of fruit you want. Blueberries, raspberries, plums or any other of your favorite fruits will taste great with the base buckle recipe.
You can enjoy this buckle for breakfast, a snack or a dessert. It is delicious and a must try!
