Rhubarb & Strawberry Crumble

Aug, 20, 2014

By Fredrica Syren:

There is nothing like the fresh sweet and flavorful fruits and berries during summer. The kids and I just can’t get enough and since they are only available a very short time each summer, I made a promise to kiddos that we’ll enjoy them to fullest while we can. So for our afternoon treat I made a rhubarb and strawberry crumble to the delight. It’s vegan and gluten-free and should be served with a big scoop of vanilla ice cream in my opinion. Enjoy! What is your favorite summer fruit?


  • 1 cup fresh strawberriesrhubarb and strawberry crumble
  • 2/3 cup rhubarbs
  • ½ cup coconut sugar
  • Dash of vanilla
  • ¼ cup water
  • 1 tbsp. cornstarch mixed with 1 tbsp. water.


  • ½ cup gluten-free oats
  • 2/3 cups almond flour
  • ¼ cup coconut sugar
  • 4 tbsp. butter

Preheat oven to F350/ C175

Remove green part of strawberries and cut berries in half. Peel outer layer of rhubarb and dice them. Place fruit and berries in a pot with sugar, vanilla and water. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat to simmer for 5 minutes. Remove from heat and add cornstarch +water mix and stir well. Pour filling into a baking dish.

Place oats, flour, sugar and butter in a food processor and blend until you have slightly wet and crumbly dough. Sprinkle on top of filling. Bake for about 15 minutes, until crumble is dry.
