Apple Rhubarb Crisp Recipe

Last Updated on May 18, 2020 by Diane Hoffmaster

When I went up to Vermont last week to see my parents I was overcome with jealousy over my dad’s rhubarb plants.  I have a transplant that he sent me several years ago growing in a shady spot of the yard but it is nowhere near as big as the one in dad’s garden.  Probably because the temperature here in Georgia is just not ideal for growing rhubarb.  But dad also said that rhubarb is a very nutrient greedy plant so maybe I just don’t fertilize it enough?  Mom made a strawberry rhubarb pie for dessert one night that was absolutely delicious and left me craving more rhubarb desserts (and even maybe a strawberry rhubarb cocktail recipe!) (and even maybe a strawberry rhubarb cocktail recipe!)!  Thankfully when I got home the rhubarb was ready for a bit of thinning out so I put together this easy apple rhubarb crisp recipe.  It was super easy to make and even fairly healthy so I didn’t feel totally guilty eating a bowl of it after dinner!  If you are a fan of rhubarb I highly recommend trying it in crisps rather than pies every once in a while.  It makes for a much simpler dessert and there is no reason to roll out a pie crust!  If you are looking for more rhubarb recipes check out my Strawberry Rhubarb Fizz for your next cocktail!
