This recipe puts a twist on regular crisps, I love rhubarb, it has such a wonderful flavor and the brown sugar and cinnamon add great flavor to this recipe!


  1. Preheat oven to 350, grease 9x13 baking dish.
  2. mix oats,brown sugar,flour and butter together, put 1/2 of mixture into the bottom of baking dish, place rhubarb over the mixture and sprinkle with cinnamon.
  3. In medium saucepan cook water,sugar,cornstarch and vanilla over medium heat until thick, let cool slightly,pour over rhubarb and sprinkle remaining oats+flour mixture on top Bake for 30-35 minutes.

Cinnamon is a nice flavor addition, but it is a pretty ordinary sort of "crisp" topping. Flour is mentioned in the recipe, but not listed in ingreients, so quantity is not known.

My family liked this and I might make it again however I would have to change a few things. The flavor is really good but I personally would add a bit more butter next time so it crisps up a more. Also after serving a couple of pieces, this recipe seemed to get really "soupy" but the top layer seemed to remain really dry and floury for me. Off hand I am not to sure how to fix that problem, Perhaps all the ingredients need to be cut down because this really makes a lot! I used a 9 X 13 pan and it did spill over onto my freshly cleaned oven! So maybe use a bigger pan if you choose to make it.

I'm not a big fan of rhubarb, but our CSA gives us lots of it, so I have made this a few times. My husband was a little wary because he hadn't ever eaten rhubarb before, but now he requests this when he sees me unpack the rhubarb each week!
