Apricot Rhubarb Strawberry Almond Crunch recipe by Barefeet In The Kitchen

Chunks of apricots, strawberries and fresh rhubarb are tossed together with sugar and spices and baked in between layers of a brown sugar and almond oat crust. Almost firm enough to cut into bars and yet fruity enough to be a crisp, this is really just a fruit crisp with both a top and bottom crust layer.

This is one of my favorite summer desserts. I would happily eat this breakfast, lunch and dinner every day until the pan is empty. Unfortunately, it never lasts that long in my house!

Don’t be intimidated by the crust layers or the topping, no cutting in cold butter is required. Melted butter is poured into the topping and it
forms perfect crumbs to top this dessert.

    Oats are not gluten free – therefore this recipe is not a GF recipe … you cannot just substitute Gf flour and call a recipe GF 😡

      There most certainly are certified gluten-free oats. Most celiacs do not have trouble with them. However, there are exceptions to every recipe, so if you are sensitive to oats, please do not eat them.
