It did turn out good! So said everyone who ate it, including me, so that’s a good sign. And I managed to make it sugar-free (some honey though), wheat-free and delicious!!
All you need is;
Rhubarb, Strawberries, Honey, Rolled Oats, Butter, Cinnamon and Cream.
Start with cleaning the rhubarb, it might be a little stringy, so pull the outside bits of it and chop into small pieces. Do the same with the strawberries (there won’t be stringy bits on the outside of them, so don’t peel them) and put them into a pie dish. Chop up some chunks of butter and put randomly on top of the fruit mix and drizzle however much honey you would like on top again.
Put some oats in a blender and whizz it into flour. Put it in a bowl and put chunks of butter on top of this too. It’s a good idea to have the butter in room temperature, it will be easier to make into crumble. Stick your hands in and get massaging until it looks very crumbly, that’s the whole idea of the crumble. Add some whole rolled oats if you want more texture and then a teaspoon or so of cinnamon.
Spread the crumble over the top of the rhubarb and strawberry mixture. You can put a little honey or a little sugar on top if you want (not at all necessary). Then whack it in the oven at about 160 degrees Celsius (the oven here has no numbers on it, so I was really just guessing). The crumble should get golden brown and the rhubarb mix should be bubbling underneath. I think I left mine in for about 25-30 minutes and it looked like this;
So very delicious and actually not really bad for you. We were discussing how you can actually substitute the whipped cream for greek yoghurt and this could pass for breakfast! Oats, berries and yoghurt, but in a more tempting and delicious way that you are used to. Must try one day!
Now you know what to cook for dessert tonight! We used to have rhubarb in the garden growing up and I remember how we used to pick them and just dip the end in sugar and use them as a sweet treat! Yum, yum, yum! If you don’t like rhubarb (although you might actually like it after trying this even if you’ve had a bad experience before – just proven that today) you can make this with Granny Smith apples instead!
Super delicious, super easy and super good for you (or at least not a very bad dessert at all). And you know what I’m gonna say (apart from that you can fit in a 20 minute workout while the rhubarb is in the oven, plenty of time to work up a sweat!); If it makes you feel good, it can’t be that bad for you, right?! Enjoy!
