Strawberry Rhubarb Crisp with Oat Pecan Crumb

Strawberry Rhubarb Crisp with Oat Pecan Crumb by EclecticRecipes.com #recipe

I had planned to make a strawberry rhubarb pie, but was short on time. I decided, instead to make this quick and easy crisp. I found many recipes through Internet searching, and just decided to combine my favorite flavors to make my crisp. I didn’t want it too sweet, so I added lemon juice and halved the amount of sugar as most pie recipes. I wanted to have more of a crust on top, but with more texture than what a simple crumb topping would provide, so I added some rolled oats and nuts. The result was irresistible. We finished off half the crisp the first day. In my crisp, I only used a small layer of fruit on the bottom of my baking dish, but you can certainly double the amount of fruit. This was really good on its own, but would also have been just lovely with some vanilla ice cream.

Ingredients

Topping

  • 1 cup flour
  • 1 stick butter
  • 1/2 cup rolled oats
  • 1/4 cup chopped pecans

  • 1 1/2 lbs rhubarb, cut in 1 inch pieces

    OK, I made this today for Sunday dinner and we haven’t even had dinner yet and my hubby just wants a spoon and the pan of crisp. I made the mistake of giving him a sample to taste test. This is so yummy! The only change I made was I used toasted hazelnuts instead of pecans. Either works great. This has just the right balance of sweet and tart. I can wait until after dinner to have it with ice cream. Thanks for a great recipe.

      Thanks so much, I am so glad you liked it, and I can’t wait to try it with the hazelnuts myself, that sounds even better!

    Love the crisps, and your looks fabulous as always! Oh my gosh Angie everyone must be short on time these days. I wanted to make a strawberry pie but ended up making strawberry bread pudding what??? At least you came close to your original plan :)

    Great recipe save one major, and terminally fatal flaw. The crisp topping is far to stingy in ratio to the fruit. I doubled the topping, increased the fruit a bit and made an amazing crisp that wowed the family.
