Vegan and Gluten-Free Strawberry Rhubarb Crisp Recipe: Sweeten Up Your Spring!

Hello, Spring.
Sweeten Up Your Spring With This Strawberry Rhubarb Crisp Recipe

Spring into the new season with this vegan and gluten-free strawberry rhubarb crisp. This recipe is naturally sweetened with coconut sugar and pure maple syrup, making it breakfast or dessert appropriate. The gluten-free mixture of oats and almond flour provide a savory crunch balancing the sweetness. For an even sweeter treat, top it with coconut whipped cream.

When selecting rhubarb, you’ll notice its colors range from pale pink to rich red. Seek out organic rhubarb with the reddest stalks, which will likely be more flavorful. Rhubarb contains vitamins A and C, potassium, calcium, and fiber. Rhubarb’s peak season is from April to July, so if you aren’t able to find it in the produce section yet, you can simply use frozen rhubarb. Vegetables, like rhubarb, may retain more nutrients when they are flash frozen. Whichever way you choose, you are bound to fall in love with this strawberry rhubarb crisp!

  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon Himalayan salt or sea salt
  • 1½ cup rhubarb fresh or thawed
  • 1 cup strawberries
  • 1/3 cup coconut sugar

  6. Bake for 30 -45 minutes or until the topping has crisped and turned golden brown.
