The classic strawberry rhubarb crisp was all I craved when I pregnant with Vera, my oldest daughter. It was summer time in Ontario and I could whip down the road to a local fruit and veggie stand and pick up fresh strawberries and rhubarb every few day. I would eat multiple bowls every day. I could not get enough!

Strawberry rhubarb crisp still holds a special place in my heart but now I’m kicking it up a few notches with the addition of blackberries.

This recipe is both gluten and dairy free for all to enjoy!

What you’ll need to make the Gluten Free Rhubarb, Strawberry and Blackberry Crisp

For the fruit mix you’ll need rhubarb, strawberries, blackberries, coconut sugar, lemon juice and oat flour . If you can’t get your rhubarb and berries fresh, then frozen will do just as well.

For the crisp you’ll need oat flour, almond flour, coconut sugar, salt, coconut oil, cinnamon, cardamom and oats.

Notes on the ingredients

For the oat flour, I simply freshly grind some steel cut oats for the recipe. Alternatively you can buy oat flour.

Coconut sugar is often my sweetener of choice for baked goods for a few reasons. Firstly, it is a 1:1 coconut sugar to refined sugar making it any easy swap out in baking.

Secondly, it contains some fiber, helping to reduce that massive blood sugar spike. It is also is less processed than white sugar.

However it is still sugar and should be enjoyed sparingly.
