Apple Rhubarb Crisp

I was looking for a way to use some apples from the freezer and to cut down the sugar in the rhubarb recipes I have. This uses only 1 cup of sweetener (1/2 sugar, 1/2 rapadura) per 9x13 pan. Usually its 1 1/2 to 2 cups. The results were delicious and not overly sweet but just enough.

Apple Rhubarb Crisp

4 cups frozen apples
2 cups fresh rhubarb
1/2 cup sugar

1/2 cup butter
1 cup whole wheat flour
1/2 cup rapadura
1 tsp. cinnamon
Dash salt
1/4 cup to 1/2 cup quick oats

Barely thaw apples and spread in 9 x 13 pan greased with coconut oil. Chop up rhubarb and spread over apples. Sprinkle with 1/2 cup sugar.

Combine flour, rapadura, cinnamon, salt and oats. Cut in the butter. Spread over the apple and rhubarb. Bake in 350 oven for 35 minutes.

  1. Tasted this rhubarb apple recipe. It was very good, crispy and perfectly sweetened. Nice to eat a rhubarb dessert with less sugar and calories!
