"Healthified" Strawberry Rhubarb Crisp

Posted May 29 2012 2:49pm

Memorial Day weekend was filled with my 3 favorite F-words: fitness, family and food. My family, boyfriend and I spent the weekend in the Adirondacks soaking up the perfect and sorta-bug-free weather. We didn't have much service which was a welcomed change; however, it didn't stop me from taking pictures of trees and desserts with Instagram. My aunt is a skinny-chef who whips up cookies the size of Frisbees then goes for a 17-mile run; so, though I didn't run a 1/2 marathon this weekend, I still got some yummy looking pictures! 

A gym of any sort is out of the question so we stay active by running, biking, rowing and hiking. My boyfriend and I didn't bring our road bikes up this time--- the first hill off my road is known for flashing your life before your eyes--- instead, we hiked and the view looked like a photograph (and with the help of Instragram it really did, mwhaha!).




Whew! Going up was a workout but we did see 21 frogs--- which doesn't have to do with the hardness of the hike but it was still a lot of frogs!

Before the weekend my aunt and I bought several bushels of rhubarb from the farmer's market. I haven't cooked a ton with it but wanted to try a crisp with a healthy twist, so I introduce to you my "healthified" version of Strawberry-Rhubarb Crisp.

What you'll need:

4 C chopped rhubarb
3 C hulled and halved strawberries
14 packets of Stevia (we only had individual packets)--- or use 1/2 cup of suagr 2 tsp cornstarch 4 tsp butter at room temperature 4 tsp unsweetened applesauce 1 C soft white wheat flour  1/2 cup oats  1/4 cup brown sugar
What to do:
  • Preheat the oven to 400 degrees and grease a baking pan.
  • In a large bowl, mix the rhubarb, strawberries, Stevia, and cornstarch. 
  • Pour into the greased baking dish.
  • In another bowl, add the butter and applesauce into the flour oats and brown sugar.
  • Sprinkle the topping over the fruit and bake about 30 minutes, topping should be golden brown.
  • Let cool and enjoy!
