This incredible crisp is made with a sweet and tart rhubarb filling and it’s topped with a crunchy oat and brown sugar streusel.



  • 4 cups (500g) rhubarb, cut into 1/2″ chunks
  • 3/4 cup (150g) granulated sugar
  • 1/4 cup (30g) all-purpose flour
  • 1 tsp cinnamon


  • 1 cup (125g) all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup (45g) rolled oats
  • 1/2 cup (110g) packed brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup (114g) unsalted butter, melted


  1. Preheat oven to 350F.
  2. To prepare the filling: toss together the rhubarb, sugar, flour and cinnamon in a large bowl until all the rhubarb is thoroughly coated. Transfer into an 8×8″ baking dish.
  3. To prepare the topping: mix together the flour, rolled oats and brown sugar. Pour in the melted butter and mix until all is moistened. Using your hands, break up the streusel into bite-size pieces and sprinkle evenly over top of the filling.
  4. Bake for 40-45 minutes or until the top is lightly browned and the filling is bubbling.
  5. Serve warm or cold with some sweetened whipped cream or vanilla ice cream if desired.
