Rhubarb Granola Crisp Recipe

Rhubarb Granola Crisp Recipe

Meet the Cook: When my husband and I moved to our house in town, the rhubarb patch had to come along! This is a hit whether I serve it warm with ice cream or cold. We're the parents of three married sons and the grandparents of three. -Arlene Beitz, Cambridge, Ontario
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 15 min. Bake: 30 min. YIELD:9 servings

Ingredients

  • 4 cups chopped fresh or frozen rhubarb, thawed and drained
  • 1-1/4 cups all-purpose flour, divided
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup strawberry jam
  • 1-1/2 cups granola without raisins
  • 1/2 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup chopped pecans
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1/2 cup cold butter
  • Ice cream, optional

Directions

  • 1. In a large bowl, combine the rhubarb, 1/4 cup flour and sugar; stir in jam and set aside. In another large bowl, combine the granola, brown sugar, pecans, cinnamon, ginger and remaining flour. Cut in butter until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs.
  • 2. Press 2 cups of the granola mixture into a greased 8-in. square baking dish; spread rhubarb mixture over the crust. Sprinkle with remaining granola mixture. Bake at 375° for 30-40 minutes or until filling is bubbly and topping is golden brown. Serve warm with ice cream if desired. Yield: 9 servings.
Editor's Note: If using frozen rhubarb, measure rhubarb while still frozen, then thaw completely. Drain in a colander, but do not press liquid out.
