"This is fabulous! Let me say that I made a few small changes. Basically, I cut all the sweetener in half. Since we don't eat sugar, I used equal amounts stevia & xylitol to make a half cup worth of sweetener for the fruit, and I used Gala apples (not tart). For the sweetener in the crumble I used equal amounts honey & stevia to make 1/4 cup and I used equal amounts oat flour & old fashioned oats to equal 1 cup. Also used equal amounts coconut oil & butter to make the 1/2 cup in he crumble. I've experimented with many recipes to make them sugar free & this is a winner!"

"Wonderful! But then you cannot go wrong with sugar, fruit and flour and butter combined. I added some Asian pears into mine and doubled the apples because I had only maybe 1 1/2 cup of rhubarb."

"My husband loves rubarb & this reminds me of my mom's delicious apple crisp recipe- a win-win! The only think I would change is to use all cinnamon and leave the nutmeg out. We like that flavor better."
