Roasted Plums with Greek Yogurt, Honey, and Almonds

Jump to Recipe

When we bought our house, one of the selling points was the plum tree along the fence. I knew we would enjoy eating ripe, juicy plums right off the tree every summer. So far, we have, but the tree has gone above and beyond our wildest dreams. It must really like us, because it keeps producing buckets and buckets of plums. To use up some of our plums, I made a special treat for breakfast, roasted plums with Greek yogurt, honey, and almonds. After one bite, I knew I would be making this plum recipe again.

I love oven roasting tomatoes, asparagus, winter vegetables, etc., so why not try roasting some of our never ending plums? I drizzled the plums with honey and sprinkled them with brown sugar and cinnamon. The oven did the rest of the work. I love the flavor roasting brings out in just about everything and I was not disappointed with roasted plums. The flavor was intense-sweet, tart, and juicy.

I spooned the roasted plums over a dish of creamy Greek yogurt. I added a dab of honey and chopped almonds to finish off my refreshing breakfast treat. The tender, shiny plums melted in my mouth and left me with a new love for my plum tree. A true celebration of summer.

  1. This is like a super fancy parfait…I love it. I wish we had fruit trees. Maybe I need to look into planting some! I wonder what grows well in SC. Hmmm…beautiful work on another great dish Maria

  2. Your plum tree is a gift that keeps on giving. This makes a fabulous breakfast or dessert. I hope you are having a great day. Blessings…Mary

  3. This sounds so simple, but so delicious! You are so lucky to have a plum tree. I love plums and would probably overdose on them if I were in your shoes. 😉 I pass a house with peach trees (pretty atypical here in NY) on my morning runs, and always want to grab a couple! But I resist. 🙂

  4. I love roasting vegetables and fruit – nothing better. This is an old favorite way to enjoy fruit around here, and healthier too. Unfortunately, I tend to forget to take this route, opting for more sugar laden desserts. This will have to change. Thanks for the reminder.

    And, I’m jealous of your plum treat. How cool is that?

  5. Roasted fruits somehow manages to instantly transform them into a decadent dessert. I love how you dressed up these plums! And so cool that you have a plum tree!

    1. I had never done that much with plums either Michelle until I made my first plum tart; and then could have kicked myself several times over as I wondered..’why not?’ You must try them for desserts; for me they rival peaches in baked desserts and a way I make the preparation really easy? I typically ignore the call to peel them. Have never noticed anything suffer from not going to that trouble!

  6. Plums are one of my favorite fruits. You are so lucky to have a tree of your very own! Roasted plums must be delicious, I will be trying this. Have a wonderful week 🙂

  7. I would definitely take into consideration the fruit trees when deciding on a house! In fact, I might buy an ugly house with a ton of fruit trees versus a pretty house with a bare yard! This looks like a decadent (but healthy) breakfast-love those! Thanks 🙂

  8. You did it again Maria. Another simple yet delicious recipe! Lucky you to buy a tree and get a house! 😉 LOL Wish I had a tree, or lived next door!

  9. I just bought some Greek yogurt this afternoon, what a fantastic idea for an end of summer celebration!! My Yanni will be in heaven….these are ALL of our *favorite* things!

  10. What a yummy, easy, recipe with beautiful photography. I use to have two Santa Rosa plum trees when I lived in California. It yielded the sweetest, best plums that were to die for. I must try this recipe soon. Thanks for sharing.

  11. This looks incredible. I just love how the simplest dishes can be so flavorful. And I am super jealous that you have a plum tree — well any fruit-bearing tree really!
