Easy Baking Recipes, Desserts: Rhubarb Crumble (No Refined Sugar)

I love rhubarb season and am always looking for new recipes. I discovered this one last week, but made some changes to make it a little  healthier (no refined sugar).



Rhubarb Crumble

1 cup whole wheat flour
1 cup rolled oats
1/4 teaspoon sea salt
1/3 cup honey
1 stick butter (1/2 cup)
3 cups rhubarb chopped into apx 1" pieces
1/3 cup maple syrup 
* more maple syrup can be added to taste. Some people don't like the sour taste of rhubarb as much as others.
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon orange peel (optional)

1 tablespoon butter



Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

Combine flour, oats, salt, honey and butter and mix well. I used a mixer for this. You don't want to over mix.

Spread 1/2 mixture (or a bit more if needed) into the bottom and up the sides of a pie plate, You can use your hands to pat the crust into the pan. Don't worry if the crust is not all the way up the sides.

Combine rhubarb, maple syrup, cinnamon, orange peel (if using) and mix well. Pour into crust. Dot with butter.

Spread remaining crumble on top of the pie, covering as much as possible. It is okay if a few spots show, but try to cover as much as possible,

Bake for about 40 minutes, until rhubarb is tender.

Delicious warm or cold. Top with whipped cream or ice cream if desired.
