Strawberry Rhubarb Apple Crisp

There is nothing better to me in the fall (and winter) then enjoying a bowl of comfort food for dinner, only to discover there is dessert! I try and make dessert once a week – mostly on Saturday evenings when we have the time to enjoy it after dinner. But this gem… well let’s say that although it takes little time to prepare, it goes overtime in flavour.

Typically your basic crisp has a four ingredient topping – flour, oats, brown sugar and butter – but I decided to make a dairy-free version and added an extra kick of flavour with nuts! Plus, it’s so easy to make you can get ask a set of little hands to help.

Prep Time:15 minutes
Cook Time:1 hour


  • 2 large Apples chopped
  • 1 1/2 cups Strawberries
  • 1 1/2 cups Rhubarb
  • 2 tsp Cinnamon
  • 1 tbsp Chia Seeds
  • 1/2 cup Walnut pieces
  • 1/2 cup Pecan pieces
  • 1/3 cup All Purpose Flour
  • 1/2 cup Honey
  • 1/3 cup Coconut Oil melted
  • 1/2 cup Brown Sugar loosely packed
  • cooking spray


  • Preheat your oven to 375, and spray the bottom and sides of an 8×8 ceramic dish.
  • In a bowl mix the apples, strawberries, rhubarb, 1 tsp of cinnamon and chia seeds. Pour into prepared dish.
  • In another medium sized mixing bowl combine oats, nuts, flour, and cinnamon.
  • In a small bowl whisk together the honey, melted coconut oil, and brown sugar. Pour over the flour mixture and stir together well (using your hands is best for this as you will get clumps and that’s a good thing!).
  • Pour the honey-flour mixture over the berries in your prepared baking dish.
  • Bake covered with tin foil for 30 minutes. Remove foil and continue baking for another 30 minutes or until the sides are bubbly and the top if a lovely golden shade.
  • Serve with your favourite topping – we love enjoying it dairy-free vanilla bean coconut ice cream!

I like to pop this in the oven right before I start cooking dinner, that way it’s ready by the time we are finished eating and can enjoy it warm, straight from the oven, topped with ice cream! It’s a total sweet treat as crisps are such an easy dessert to make, but fit the bill for when I’m in the mood for something sweet! You can use any combination of nuts, or even just stick with one, but I like having the different flavours from both.

A simple dessert perfect for your family tonight! Start it before you make dinner and an hour later your house will smell amazing!

  1. Strawberry rhubarb crisp is one of my favourite desserts to make (and, of course, eat). We grow rhubarb in our garden and it’s always exciting to take some from there and make a dessert. This one looks delicious…I can only imagine how it smells!

  2. Oh I LUV rhubarb crisp!!! And I don’t have a good recipe – I will be trying this one cause I love the idea of the apples AND strawberries and pecans and walnuts. I haven’t seen a recipe with nuts. Yum!

  3. I used to always freeze big bags of rhubarb from my mom’s garden and pull them out in the fall and winter for crisp! I usually made apple rhubarb, though, and the strawberries sound like a really nice addition. Love the walnuts and pecans, too.
