A traveling girl, that is my nickname these days. I travel from city to city, and check to make sure restaurants are safe. I love my day job, but I adore my night job. Baking, baking, baking, makes me happy!!!
I really want to learn more about gluten free, my goal is to try to make more gluten free recipes. The other day I was chatting with my sweet Grandma, the one that shared her beautiful Snickerdoodle recipe. She was making a a rhubarb pie….I will share that soon!
But rhubarb, wow, I haven’t enjoyed anything with rhubarb in ages. I was flooded with a memories of my dad and I enjoying rhubarb together. We would pick some from Grandma’s garden, and then come home and make rhubarb sauce. Have you ever had rhubarb sauce before? It is an amazing, tart, delicious treat!
Well I want to make all those lovely dishes, but first decided to try a crisp. I received coconut flour from Tropical Traditions a few weeks back, and decided this was a perfect recipe to try it on.
I have never had coconut flour before, but can honestly say I will be using it definitely in the future! What a gorgeous flour, so full of flavor!
Gluten Free Rhubarb Crisp –
5 1/2 cups rhubarb, diced
2 cups strawberries, diced
1/2 cup pure cane sugar
1/2 cup butter, melted
3/4 cup brown sugar
3/4 cup gluten free oats
3/4 cup coconut flour
1 tsp cinnamon
1/4 tsp nutmeg
Preheat oven to 350 degrees fahrenheit
In 9 x 9 inch pan, toss rhubarb and strawberries in 1/2 cup pure cane sugar.
In medium bowl – mix together butter, brown sugar, oats, coconut flour, cinnamon, and nutmeg.
Spread sugar/flour mixture on top of rhubarb and strawberries. Bake for about 20-25 minutes depending on oven.
Note: I over baked mine, which is easy to see in my picture. I baked it for 35 minutes. Just be careful with over baking the dessert!
Here are some other fun ways to enjoy coconut flour courtesy of Tropical Traditions.
To make this dessert even better, how about enjoying it for breakfast? I decided to mix it with my favorite treat, Chobani Greek Yogurt!
