Plum Coconut Crisp

Sue shared a recipe for plum crisp and plum cobbler (link HERE) but I really feel like my Plum Coconut Crisp deserves its own post. 
Adding some crunchy coconut to all those sweet and squishy plums is a fantastic idea. 
I've been waiting all summer for fall to come just so I could make this crisp. True story. 
It uses a good amount of plums too so is great when your friends bring over boxes and boxes of plums and you need to use them up before the fruit flies completely overrun your kitchen. 
From start to finish in about an hour. 
Make one tonight... or make two - they freeze well too! Simply cook, cool, cover and freeze. When ready to eat - pop, frozen, into a 350 oven until heated through - about 40 minutes or so. 

Plum Coconut Crisp

Plum Layer
4 cups diced plums
1 Tbsp flour
2 Tbsp sugar
1 tsp vanilla
1/2 tsp cinnamon

Crumble Topping
1/2 cup unsweetened, shredded coconut
1/2 cup flour
1/2 cup old fashioned oats
1/2 cup brown sugar
pinch salt
1/4 cup butter, melted

Preheat oven to 350. Lightly spray a 10 inch pan with cooking spray, set aside. 
In a bowl, mix together plums, flour, sugar, vanilla, and cinnamon. Spread in prepared pan. 

In the same bowl you just mixed the fruit in, mix the coconut, flour, oats, brown sugar, salt, and butter. Stir with a fork until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Sprinkle evenly over plums in pan.

Place on a cookie sheet or pizza pan to catch drips. 
Cook in 350 oven until bubbly and browned on top, about 40 or so minutes. 

*Boom* Done. Just like that.
Serve warm or room temp. 

Of course, adding some vanilla ice cream is always a brilliant idea. 

Soooooooo tasty. 
I'm just going to crawl right into the bowl.
