Berry Rhubarb Crisp

Before I get into the deets of this Gluten Free Berry Rhubarb Crisp, I’ll recap a little about what I’ve been up to. Kelsey’s 2nd birthday party was this past weekend so we were crazy busy trying to get ready for a party of 40 at our house. Insane, now that I’m thinking back on it.

Not sure why I thought throwing a huge party with 2 under 2, a husband working long days and a ton of set up, decorating and food prep would be no big deal.  Thankfully, we had a lot of help so we were actually able to pull it off!

So the party was done, time for a low-key relaxing rest of the weekend! Um, no.

My car decided to have a stroke. Literally, it seems to have stroked out. Since the cost of repairs would be more than the car is even worth, it’s time for an upgrade. Sad that it’s an end of an era for my cutie little Saab but I’m excited to be getting a new-to-me car. Yay for that!

Let’s get back to what you’re really here for, the Berry Rhubarb Crisp. There are three words that describe this crisp: Yum, yum and yum.

Crisps are an under-rated dessert, often over-looked for cakes, pies, cupcakes, etc. But this Berry Rhubarb Crisp is not to be skipped over. It’s bursting with sweet berries and tart rhubarb, the perfect combo.

And did I mention the topping? You can’t have a Berry Rhubarb Crisp without a delicious crispy topping and this one is a must try! Oatmeal, butter, flour, sugar – it’s like a giant crispy oatmeal cookie on top of your deliciously juicy fruit! It’s hands down the best crisp topping I’ve ever had. Old school me would say it’s the bomb dot-com.

And if you ignore the butter and sugar and look at the 8 cups of fruit AND the oatmeal you can say that it’s basically a health food, right? Right?!

I know, I know… Not a “health food” but let’s pretend and celebrate in our serving of fruit for dessert. Amen.

  • 4 C rhubarb cut in 1 inch pieces
  • 2 C strawberries quartered
  • 1 C blackberries
  • 1 C raspberries
  • Zest from 1/2 navel orange
  • Juice from 1 navel orange
  • 1 Tbsp cornstarch
  • 1 1/2 C granulated sugar
  • 1 C gluten-free all-purpose flour
  • 1 C old-fashioned oats
  • 1/2 C brown sugar
  • 1/2 tsp kosher salt
  • 1/4 tsp xanthan gum
  • 12 Tbsp cold butter diced


  • Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees.
  • In a medium sized bowl, combine rhubarb, strawberries, blackberries, raspberries, orange zest and 1 cup granulated sugar.
  • In a small bowl, mix together cornstarch and the fresh orange juice. Mix until the cornstarch dissolves and add to the fruit. Mix well. Pour into a 9×13 inch baking dish.
  • In the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with a paddle attachment, add 1/2 cup granulated sugar, gluten-free all-purpose flour, xanthan gum, salt, brown sugar and oats. Mix on low speed until ingredients are combined.
  • With the mixer on low, add the cold diced butter to the dry ingredients. Mix until the dry ingredients are moist and stick together. Slowly increase speed to medium. When it is ready, you will be able to pinch the dough together and it will hold its form.
  • Sprinkle the dough over the top of the fruit, spreading evenly and covering the whole dish.
  • Bake at 350 degrees for 1 hour. Serve warm with vanilla ice cream.


This can be made with regular all-purpose flour too. Just use an equal amount of regular all-purpose flour and omit the xanthan gum. Please remember to use gluten-free ingredients when following a gluten-free diet. Oatmeal is a gluten-free food but is sometimes processed in a facility that also processes wheat. Always check your labels to be sure.
