What a gorgeous weekend we are having here in Vancouver! Amazing, I was sunning today and had to wear sunscreen and it’s only April. 😉 Enough bragging about the weather…….let’s talk about this awesome dessert. I always loved my moms apple crisp growing up. When I opened my farmers box from Spud Urban Delivery this week, I found 3 beautiful rhubarb stalks. I knew right away I had to make a crisp. 🙂 As always I healthifed the traditional recipe. I don’t make a base crust, instead I just used the fruit. I also substituted coconut oil fro butter and I made it gluten free. Winning! I topped mine with some of my favourite daily free ice cream, coconut bliss vanilla. This dessert is nice and light and its healthy enough to eat for breakfast. 😉 Enjoy!
