Oh Springtime! We all get so excited when the rhubarb starts popping thru the garden soil, and it is watched CAREFULLY until we have the first crop ready to pick!
Will it be jam, or pie, or better yet, a beautiful Rhubarb Berry Crisp?
This is one of our family favorite recipes! Tart rhubarb is perfectly paired with whatever fresh berries I have available. My absolute favorite is a simple Rhubarb and Raspberry pairing, but today I had fresh strawberries and fresh raspberries, so this will be a sweet surprise!
The tart and sweet rhubarb and berries are topped with a sweet oat topping - I've included recipe substitutions so that this can be made gluten free as well.
The old-fashioned oatmeal, brown sugar and butter combine to make the most wonderful sweet and chewy topping - kinda like having a wonderful fresh and chewy, warm oatmeal cookie on top!
The hardest part is letting this cool down from the oven - everyone is ready to dig in right away!
A scoop of Rhubarb Berry Crisp in a bowl, topped with some fresh vanilla ice cream and drizzled with a little "extra" crisp from the pan makes for a perfect treat. Hope that you enjoy this as much as we do!
