Raspberry Rhubarb Apple Crisp

Raspberry Rhubarb Apple Crisp | Swirls and Spice
Loaded with tart rhubarb and tangy raspberries, sweetened with local apples and rich maple syrup, this fruit crisp celebrates the end of summer harvest.  The topping is delightful, made with oats and ground almonds held together with coconut oil (or butter if you prefer) and a touch of sugar and spice.  It also happens to be gluten free.  But mostly it’s a dessert that I want to repeat as often as possible.  To me it’s fruit crisp at its finest, which I’ll choose over chocolate decadence almost every time.

  1. Oh, rhubarb is so yummy! I wish I could get my hubby to eat it. I’ll bet this is mouth-watering, because mine already is!!

  2. Crisps are about my favorite category of desserts so yummy, easily healthy, and so yummy. I have never done raspberry rhubarb and apple all together though. Sounds delightful!

  3. Thanks for linking up at our Gluten Free Fridays party! I have tweeted and pinned your entry to our Gluten Free Fridays board on Pinterest! 🙂 I can’t wait to see what you share this week! Its LIVE!


    1. If you don’t need it to be gluten free, all-purpose wheat flour would do just fine. I think rice flour or teff flour would also work if you are avoiding gluten. I’d be glad to hear how it turns out.
