What is a Strawberry Rhubarb

First things first - what is a rhubarb, anyway?

First of all, a rhubarb is straight and sturdy, just like a celery. So it is actually a vegetable but it is great when mixed with fruit because of its nutritional value and amazing taste.

Speaking of taste…

It has a slightly sweet and somewhat tart flavor… A little bit like green apple.

So with strawberries, that makes an excellent combination in terms of the flavor and nutrients!

It’s great for building healthy bones whether you’re an infant, a senior, or whatever stage of life you are in.

I like to mix the rhubarb with strawberries as this doubles up the nutritional value of these ingredients.

As we all know, strawberries are packed with vitamin C and essential antioxidants that can help strengthen the immune system and improve the quality of your skin.

So by combining strawberries and rhubarb in this recipe, that definitely calls for a truly rich and satisfying snack that is tasty, filling, and nutritious!

How to Make Strawberry Rhubarb Crisp

First of all, this strawberry rhubarb crisp that I’ll share with you contains just a few ingredients so it's very easy to make.

As a bonus note: I  would also include some chopped pecans and coconut as these contain good fats that are good for your heart and overall health.

As for the sweetener, I prefer to use maple syrup, specifically organic and pure ones. Then, we also have our orange juice and orange zest for that amazing citrus taste and aroma.

I also prefer to add some vanilla to give it a nice flavor with additional nutrients. And of course, these ingredients add a bit of a crunch to this recipe, which kids will really enjoy.

Now, this strawberry rhubarb crisp recipe comes with a thick sauce, and you can achieve that by adding in a bit of flour.

In this case, I use organic cornstarch instead of flour for added thickness.

Okay, it may seem like you can’t add this, but you absolutely can and no one will know the difference. Not even your kids!

To add an additional boost of health to my strawberry oatmeal bars, I use dehydrated kale.


Kale is part of the cruciferous family, and I LOVE anything from the cruciferous family! These
veggies contain properties that fight against the growth of cancer. So I love being able to add these into mine and my family’s diet any way I can!
