Mmmm, rhubarb crisp is a delicious way to use up lots of rhubarb from the backyard! Maybe some of you can answer this question about baking with rhubarb for me: how healthy is it to eat rhubarb, when it needs SO MUCH sugar to make edible?! 🙂  It’s definitely yummy though!!

 

Rhubarb Crisp

4 cups rhubarb, chopped in 1/2″-3/4″ pieces
1/8 cup white sugar
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup  flour (white or wheat)
1/2 cup oatmeal
1/3 cup butter/margarine
3/4 tsp cinnamon (optional)

Mix rhubarb and white sugar together, place in greased 8×8″ pan. Mix brown sugar, flour, oatmeal, butter, and cinnamon together. You may need to use your fingers to crumble these ingredients together. Sprinkle over rhubarb, and lightly pack down. Bake at 350F for 30 minutes or until rhubarb is cooked (if a knife goes through the rhubarb easily, it is cooked). Delicious warm or cold! With ice cream, yogurt, or plain!
