Strawberry Rhubarb Crisp

June 13, 2012

My sister-in-law recently brought over some Rhubarb for me from her garden, and I’ve just been dying to use it.  Then… Our local grocery store had strawberries on sale, which meant a match made in heaven Smile

I was really excited to make a pie or something of the sort.  But just a few short days before, I made a Strawberry Rhubarb Pie with Jen from  So I figured that I should try another recipe.Strawberry Rhubarb Pie

I looked up several recipes for all different types of items with strawberrys and rhubarb… but either was missing an important ingredient, or it didn’t sound as good as I wanted it too.

So I combined a few recipes from online for the filling; and then used the ‘crisp’ from my Carmelita’s Recipe.  I *love* the oatmeal crunch from the Carmelita’s – so I assumed it’d be awesome with strawberries and rhubarb as well.

Here it is Smile

Strawberry Rhubarb Crisp Recipe

Strawberry Rhubarb Crisp:

1 container strawberries – cut into 3-4 slices
4-5 stalks of Rhubarb (about 4 cups cut into smaller pieces)
5 Tbsp Flour
3/4 C. Sugar

Mix all ingredients together into a bowl.  Let sit while you make the crust.

Strawberry Rhubarb Crisp Filling Mixture

1 1/2 C. Butter, melted completely
2 C. Flour
1 1/2 C. Brown Sugar
1 tsp. Baking Soda
1/2 tsp. Salt
2 C. Instant Oatmeal (I just used the packets because it’s what I had on hand.)

Preheat oven to 350
Mix Flour, Brown Sugar, Baking Soda, Salt, and Oatmeal together –
Pour fully melted butter over the top and mix thoroughly. (I use my hands)
Put 1/2 of the mixture into a cake pan or casserole. Pat down flat and bake at 350 for 10 minutes (even if it doesn’t look done yet, take it out).

Then – pour in strawberry rhubarb mixture, and crumble remaining half of the crust over the top – being sure to cover evenly.

Making Strawberry Rhubarb Crisp

Bake for 40-45 minutes:  Keep a close watch on it so as not to burn.  I think mine was set for 50 minutes and at 40-45 minutes I took it out because it looked finished.Strawberry Rhubarb Crisp Recipe Finished

Serve warm with Ice Cream!  YuM!!!

    This looks absolutely delicious. Growing up we had rhubarb growing in our backyard so we made a lot of things with rhubarb but not this. I would so love to try this recipe.

  30. I’m making this now. However, I only used 1 C of melted butter. 1 1/2 is a lot. Hope it turns out! Thanks for the recipe!

  31. Made this tonight — was FABULOUS!! I loved having a crisp layer on the bottom and on top. Made it as directed, except used regular rolled oats instead of instant because it’s what I had on hand, and it turned out great. Excellent recipe, with the right amount of sweetness with the tart rhubarb. Thanks for sharing!
