Individual strawberry rhubarb crisps

individual strawberry rhubarb crisps

Another strawberry recipe, and there is at least one more on the way. This time I had some rhubarb (I hadn't had it in years!) and a craving for a fruity dessert. I forgot how good strawberry and rhubarb is together. They were made for each other. (Funny side story: When I was buying the rhubarb, the lady behind me asked if it was pink celery. Hm.)

I made these in individual ramekins for easy portion control but you could also use an 8x8 baking dish.

Strawberry rhubarb crisp
(makes 7-8 individual crisps)

3 cups strawberries, hulled and quartered
3 cups rhubarb, diced
1/4 - 1/2 cup sugar (1/4 was plenty sweet for me)

1/2 cup flour
1/2 cup rolled oats
1/2 cup brown sugar
3/4 tsp. cinnamon
1/3 cup earth balance (or butter), cold

Mix strawberries, rhubarb and sugar together and let sit 10 minutes. Divide among ramekins or 8x8 baking dish.

Mix flour, oats, brown sugar, cinnamon and earth balance (butter) until crumbly. And sprinkle over the fruit mixture evenly. Bake at 350 for 35-40 minutes, or until golden.



  1. Pink celery is hysterical. I haven't yet worked with rhubarb myself but this looks pretty delicious and I may have to give it a try!

  2. I bought rhubarb yesterday and the cashier took one look and said "What is this?" This afternoon I'm making strawberry rhubarb tart but I'm bookmarking your recipe to make next time I've got rhubarb.

  3. I've added peaches to the mix, quite tasty!

  4. This has nothing to do with the recipe, but I found your side through foodgawker and was looking at your bio.

    It said you were married to a musician so obviously I thought of like a small time band and then I googled it and was like "!$!@@%^ what?!"

    Just wanna say your photos are amazing, you're gorgeous, and I can't believe you're married to a member of Showbread.

    Oh and I swear I'm not a crazy freaky person, I just think a nice comment can make anyones day better :)

  12. Got some late summer rhubarb and could still get some fresh Ontario strawberries in the store, which doesn't happen often in September, so I am looking forward to your recipe. My two favourites, strawberries and rhubarb, and love it that your recipe does not require a lot of sugar. Thanks.
