Fruit crisps are such delicious, comforting desserts!
The warm fruit topped with a layer of crunchy crisp topping is just so inviting.
I like a more even mix of fruit filling and crisp topping.
So, this strawberry rhubarb is about half fruit filling and half crisp topping, which is my ideal ratio.
It also has a good sweet/tart mix between the filling and the topping.
Can I use fresh rhubarb?
Substitute an equal amount of fresh rhubarb in place of the frozen rhubarb.
More fruit crisps!

Strawberry Rhubarb Crisp
- 2 cups fresh strawberries (stemmed and quartered)
- 2 cups frozen rhubarb (thawed and cut into ½-inch pieces)
- ¼-1/3 cup granulated sugar (depending on desired sweetness)
- ¼ cup cornstarch
- 1 cup whole-wheat flour
- 1 ½ cups old-fashioned rolled oats
- 1 cup brown sugar (packed)
- ½ cup butter (cut into pea-sized pieces)
- ½ teaspoon vanilla extract
- Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
- Combine all the strawberries, rhubarb, sugar, and cornstarch in a large bowl. Stir to combine well. Spoon into a shallow baking dish (1 ½ quart).
- To make the topping, in a food processor (or with your hands) combine the flour, oats, and brown sugar and pulse (or smoosh) to combine.
- Add the butter and pulse (or smoosh) until the mixture looks dry and crumbly.
- Crumble the topping over the filling.
- Bake in the preheated oven until the filling is hot and bubbly all the way through and the topping looks crispy and light brown, about 25 to 30 minutes.
