Servings 6


  • 9X13" Pan
  • One medium and one really big bowl
  • Slotted spoon
  • Wooden (or regular mixing) spoon
  • Pastry blender (or fingers work fine too! ?)



  • 6 Cups Rhubarb Sliced about 1/2" thick.
  • 1 Pound Strawberries Hulled & Quartered.
  • 1 1/4 Cup Lakanto Granulated Monkfruit Sweetener Or granulated sweetener of choice.
  • 3 Tbsp Tapioca Starch Cornstarch would work; I just don't really like to eat corn.
  • 2 tsp Fresh Lemon Juice
  • 1 tsp Vanilla Extract


  • 1 Stick Unsalted Butter Softened. Coconut Oil (or Butter Flavored Coconut Oil) would be a nice dairy-free sub!
  • 1 Cup Coconut Palm Sugar Adjust to taste! Lakanto or Swerve Golden would be a good sub. (or Brown Sugar of course ?)
  • 1 1/2 Cup Gluten Free Flour I used King Arthur. Grain Free- a nut flour or meal of some kind would be yummy.
  • 1 1/4 Cup Gluten Free Rolled Oats I'd use sliced almonds or pecan pieces for a grain-free option.
  • 3 Tbsp. Mild (Light) Olive Oil
  • 1 1/2 tsp Cinnamon
  • 3/4 tsp Pink Sea Salt


  • Preheat oven to 375.


  • In a bowl, toss the Rhubarb with 3/4 cup Lakanto (or Swerve or regular) sugar.
  • Let that sit for about 15 minutes, stirring every once in a while.
  • In a BIG BOWL (trust me, mine overflowed ?) toss the strawberries with the remaining 1/2 cup of Lakanto and let it sit for about 10 minutes, stirring every once in a while.
  • Using a slotted spoon, transfer the rhubarb to the big strawberry bowl, leaving behind the rhubarb- juice that has pooled on the bottom.
  • Add the tapioca, lemon juice and vanilla and stir well.
  • Spread this on the bottom of a 9X13" pan.


  • While you're waiting for your fruit, combine all topping ingredients together in a big bowl. A wooden spoon works really well for smushing everything together with the softened butter.
  • Use a pastry cutter or your fingers to mix until large crumbs form.
  • Sprinkle the topping evening over the filling.
  • Bake uncovered for 30 minutes.
  • Reduce temperature to 350 and bake for another 30 minutes, until the fruit is bubbling and the top is nice and golden brown.
  • Let the crisp rest for 10-20 minutes before serving.
