This gluten-free rhubarb crisp is simple and absolutely delicious. It is a perfect spring and summer dessert with rich and tart rhubarb and oatmeal crisp served with a scoop of vanilla ice cream on top.



For crisp topping:

  • 1 cup (95 g) gluten-free instant oatmeal
  • 1/3 cup + 1 tablespoon (80 g) brown sugar
  • 1 tablespoon (6 g) almond flour
  • 1.4 oz. (40 g) butter, melted

For rhubarb filling:

  • 12.3 oz. (350 g) fresh rhubarb, cut into cubes
  • 1/3 cup (75 g) granulated sugar
  • 2 1/2 tablespoons (35 ml) heavy cream
  • 1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 pinch of salt

* If needed, please refer to Baking Conversion Charts.



  1. Preheat the oven to 355 degrees F/180 degrees C. To make crisp topping, place oatmeal, brown sugar, almond flour, and melted butter in a mixing bowl, and combine.
  2. To prepare rhubarb filling, wash and dice rhubarb into 1-inch/2.5 cubes. In a separate bowl, combine rhubarb, granulated sugar, cream, vanilla extract, salt. Pour the rhubarb mixture into a 9.5-inch/24 cm glass pie baking dish.
  3. Sprinkle the crisp over the rhubarb preparation. Bake in the low half of the oven for 40 to 50 minutes or until crispy brown and bubbly. Serve it hot, warm, or cold with a scoop of ice cream.


  1. Cut rhubarb into 1-inch/2.5 cm good-sized chunks to keep their shape after baking. You can also cut rhubarb into thinner slices if you prefer. 
  2. Use any oven-safe baking dish for baking the rhubarb crisp.  To re-calculate the amount of ingredients, use this simple Cake Pan Converter.
  3. You can also make the dessert in individual ramekins, placing them on a baking sheet. It will catch the fruit bubbling while baking. You may need to decrease the baking time by 5 to 10 minutes.
  4. Add a few chopped walnuts, chopped pecans, or slivered almonds to the crisp topping if desired.
  5. To reduce the amount of sugar in crips topping, replace some part of it with a few chopped Medjool dates.
