I liked that it had less sugar than most recipes of this kind.

It needs no water. The fruits have enough moisture in them

Oh yeah - I didn't have any splenda sugar, but would try that way. Any way that we can use rhubarb, I will Love that stuff.

I made this for my husband and for a friend of mine. They both gave it a thumbs up. My hubby thought it a touch sweet but liked it. I didn't have the brown sugar blend either so used regular and it was fine. My crunch topping stayed dry. I know my butter was cut in appropriately. I think I might try a smidge more butter next time to try and crunch it up. We will make this again, and I am going to try it with a blueberry/strawberry mix next time.
