Easy Rhubarb Crisp

Summer time means fresh berries and rhubarb. This easy strawberry rhubarb crisp is a crowd pleaser and delicious. Sweet tangy fruit with a crunchy topping is one of the best treats on earth.

This is the first rhubarb recipe I have ever made. Technically, it’s a vegetable but you treat it like fruit. It’s very tart but when you add a little sugar and cook it down, it becomes a true dessert. Try this fruity crisp and give rhubarb a chance!

I may or may have not made this homemade strawberry rhubarb crisp multiple times in a week. Adding it to plain Greek yogurt for a breakfast option makes me look forward to my first meal!

Pro Tip: If you add more strawberries you’ll end up with more liquid.
