Rhubarb Strawberry Crisp
June 20, 2019 8 Comments
Rhubarb strawberry crisp gets made only at this time of year. Why? Well, I only remember to use rhubarb when I see it in the spring.
You can miss it if you aren’t looking for it because it is usually in a random basket near the strawberries.
I get excited when rhubarb hits the produce section and toss a couple stalks in my shopping cart.
Why do I love rhubarb?
- An entire pound of rhubarb has a whopping 95 calories.
- It is delicious - sour, sweet, crunchy, yum!
- It is so EASY to cook.
I have come up with a "Rhubarb Strawberry Crisp" recipe that will make you fall in love with......
ME rhubarb (if you haven’t already). The best part is that you don’t have to make a pie crust - that is the beauty of crisp.
This rhubarb strawberry crisp is very low in sugar for a dessert. You need to ensure strawberries that the strawberries are well distributed in the ramekins or you might end up with a super sour crisp. You can bake this all in one pan as well - add 10 minutes to the baking time.
If you find this not sweet enough, just drizzle some honey on the final product. My children scarfed these down faster than you can say "rhubarb" and demanded MORE.
These could also be eaten for breakfast! Whole grain, fruit, low in sugar - what else could you want?
If you use coconut oil instead of butter, and agave syrup to replace the honey, this recipe will be vegan. If you use gluten free oats - this recipe will be gluten free.
