Strawberry Rhubarb Crisp

Strawberry Rhubarb Crisp is one of my favourite quick and easy summer dessert recipes. It is bursting with sweet juicy strawberries and sour rhubarb topped with a golden gluten free crumble. Strawberry Rhubarb Crisp is naturally sweetened with a touch of maple syrup which makes for a refreshing vegan dessert.

I have always been a rhubarb lover. My mom grows rhubarb in her garden and when I was little the two of us would enjoy rhubarb freshly picked and dipped in a little sugar. I LOVE the tart sour flavour of rhubarb that pairs so well with strawberries.

Rhubarb is also extremely low in sugar so it is perfect for someone following a candida diet. I have a bunch of other delicious fruity dessert recipes in my cookbook Healthy Dairy Free Desserts.

Health Benefits of Strawberries

Strawberries are an excellent source of antioxidants that prevent oxygen damage and protect the cell structure in the body. The antioxidants found in strawberries also contain anti-inflammatory properties that lessen the activity of the COX enzyme which causes pain and inflammation in arthritis, cancer and asthma sufferers. Strawberries are also rich in vitamin C which promotes joint health and collagen production.

    THIS WAS AMAZING!!!!
    Thank you x1000000!

    Rhubarb Crisp is my favorite dessert, and haven’t had it since making health and lifestyle changes.
    This recipe was BETTER than the traditional version I used to make and love. THIS RECIPE IS MY NEW LOVE! ♡

    I did make a couple tweaks-
    honey instead of maple, used other berries, & used an 11×7 pan which needed 1.5× the topping.

    Thank you thank you! I’ll be making this over and over and over, I’m sure 🙂

      I’m so happy you liked the recipe Rachel, I LOVE your enthusiasm. Your substitutions sound awesome and I love that you used a larger pan with more topping!

    I baked the rhubarb and strawberries separate to the crisp so it stores for longer and them just put together when I want to eat it!
