How to Make Gluten Free Strawberry Rhubarb Crisp
Once you make this simple strawberry rhubarb crisp, it’ll become your new favorite! So easy to make and comes out perfect every time!
Firstly, dice the rhubarb and quarter the strawberries. Cut off the tops and bottoms of the rhubarb stalks and then dice the rhubarb into about one inch pieces. Place in a large mixing bowl.
Then, add in the quartered strawberries, sugar, cornstarch, and salt.
Toss together until the fruit is coated. Let the mixture sit for five minutes to meld the flavors together and soften the fruit.
While the fruit sits, prepare the crisp topping.
Easy Rolled Oats Brown Sugar Topping
Keep the topping for this crisp simple with this four ingredient topping. All you need is rolled oats, brown sugar, melted butter and cinnamon.
Combine the ingredients in a bowl and mix. It’s that easy!
Assemble the fruit crisp and bake
Pour the strawberry rhubarb mixture into a 9 x 9 inch baking pan or a small casserole dish. Then, spoon the topping over top.
Bake your Strawberry Rhubarb Crisp at 375 degrees for about 45 minutes. You will know the crisp is ready when it is bubbly around the edges and the topping is slightly brown and crispy.
Let the crisp sit for about 10 minutes before scooping and serving. This is delicious served as is, but is incredible with a scoop of vanilla ice cream!
Refrigerate any uneaten crisp in an airtight container. I like to eat mine the next morning with some nonfat greek yogurt too.

My bf shouldnt eat that much sugar, do you have suggestions for what else to use for the crisp, instead of brown sugar?
You could try half the amount of maple syrup instead.
Strawberry and rhubarb is the perfect combination! Love the idea of making them into a crisp dessert.
