Plums, ginger, orange and cinnamon, simplicity at its best. Perfect for breakfast or pudding. These baked plums with ginger and orange are the ultimate tasty, speedy treat and with plums in season now, it’s super cheap to make. It’s preferable that the plums are slightly underripe, otherwise they will over cook and fall apart… though this still tastes awesome too! Serve with either Greek or coconut yoghurt.

  3. Rearrange the plums on the baking tray, flesh side down so the plums don’t overlap. Bake in the oven for about 20 minutes. If your plums are riper they will need less cooking time, approximately 10 minutes in total. Remove from the oven and serve warm or cold, your choice, with coconut or Greek yoghurt. Option to drizzle with a little honey if you like things sweeter. Baked Plums with Ginger & Orange (Low-Carb, Paleo)
