Rhubarb crumble has always been one of my favourite dessert! So I decided to do my own take and create a healthy rhubarb crumble recipe that was vegan, gluten free and containing no refined sugar.
The rhubarb is cooked until sticky and tender topped with a sweet oat crisp. Skipping on the butter, sugar and wheat flour this healthy rhubarb crumble recipe can be enjoyed guilt free without feeling heavy and bloated afterwards!
Sweetened only with maple syrup with oats, flour and coconut oil forming the crumble. This doesn’t compromise on taste or texture, it tastes just like the real deal.
The ultimate perfect dessert. Amazing served warm with some coconut yoghurt or ice cream.
I feel like everyone loves a healthy rhubarb and apple crumble with oats so this delicious dessert is great for entertaining. Especially as it can be made the day before.
This Healthy rhubarb crumble recipe is delicious served hot or cold especially with a helping of custard, ice cream or yoghurt.
