Rhubarb and Raspberry Crisp (Vegan GF)

Sticky sweet rhubarb and raspberries topped with an oaty and nutty crumble topping baked until golden and crisp. This vegan and gluten-free dessert is one for the whole family and is easy to whip up with simple ingredients.

Each year, rhubarb season creeps up on me, and before I know it, all I see across social media are rhubarb recipes. Vibrant pink pieces of fruit on top of beautiful cakes, underneath rich crumbles or baked until sticky and served with ice cream. There are so many amazing things you can do with rhubarb and this is just one of them.

The rhubarb I found was not as vibrant pink as I’d have liked for this recipe and after baking until soft it had definitely lost some colour. So, I added in some juicy and bright fresh raspberries and the flavour combination, as well as the colours, popped. That said, you don’t need to add them in, rhubarb on its own is special enough.

Coat the rhubarb pieces in lemon juice, arrowroot or cornstarch, sugar or sugar alternative and some vanilla to form a glaze and bake until sticky and soft. The fruit will bubble and smell amazing! Meanwhile, make the crisp topping which all comes together in one bowl. Some oats, oat flour (simply blitz to your oats to a powder), sugar and chopped nuts make a really chewy, crisp and crunchy topping. Flavoured with sweet cinnamon and held together with coconut oil or vegan butter/margarine and that’s it.

Sprinkle over the topping and allow to bake again until golden, smelling sweet and crispy on top. I like to let this Rhubarb and Raspberry Crisp cool down slightly before serving with some coconut yoghurt and syrup, but you can also serve it straight away with some custard, ice cream or on its own. It makes a great dessert for all the family… and enjoy leftovers cold for breakfast with some extra fruit and yoghurt.

I hope you will love this Rhubarb and Raspberry Crisp as much as we did, it’s sweet and sticky without being sickly sweet – the rhubarb adds a tartness to it! The top is oaty, nutty and sticky like a wholesome flapjack. It is a great vegan, gluten-free and refined sugar free dessert perfect for all the family. It is easily nut-free, too, and makes delicious leftovers.

If you are looking for more simple desserts, how about my Vegan Chocolate Mug Cake, Spiced Apple Cake, Pear Cardamom and Almond Crumble or Dark Chocolate Tart.

Directions


1. Preheat the oven to 160Fan/180*C and have one large baking proof dish or two smaller ones.

5. Once the rhubarb is soft, sprinkle over the raspberries, pressing them down and then spoon over the crisp topping and bake on the tray again for 20-25 minutes until golden brown.
6. Allow to cool slightly or to room temperature before serving.
