Rhubarb Strawberry Crunch

If you like a sweet juicy dessert with a crunchy topping this is the one! I love it.

  • 3 cups rhubarb, diced in ¼ inch pieces
  • 2 cups strawberries, chopped in small pieces
  • 2 tablespoons tapioca
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup Splenda or additional sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon


  • 1/3 cup flour
  • 1/3 cup oats, rolled (raw)
  • 1/3 cup graham cracker crumbs
  • 1/3 cup brown sugar
  • 2 tablespoons butter or margarine
  • 1 tablespoon canola oil
  • 1 tablespoon maple syrup
  • 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Butter a 7 x 11 inch baking pan. In a large bowl, combine rhubarb, strawberries, tapioca, sugar, Splenda, and cinnamon. Stir to mix. Let stand for 5 - 10 minutes.

Spoon into baking dish.

In a small bowl, combine all topping ingredients. Stir to mix well. Sprinkle evenly on top of rhubarb and strawberries. Bake for 25 - 30 minutes or until topping is lightly brown and fruit mixture is bubbling.

Cool to room temperature. Dessert is soft and best served with a spoon.
