This rhubarb crisp recipe is special for two reasons. First, it’s a variation on our classic Apple Crisp recipe, a time-tested crisp that’s both foolproof and beloved. Second, we omitted rhubarb’s usual companions (we’re looking at you, strawberries) and added some sugar for sweetness, so the signature tang of this stalky vegetable really shines through. Topped with a layer of buttery oatmeal streusel and baked until bubbly, this recipe delivers rhubarb crisp in its purest and most delicious form!

Tips from the Betty Crocker Kitchens

  • tip 1
    The beauty of this recipe is that you can make any time of year since it turns out delicious with fresh or frozen rhubarb. Just remember when using frozen, rhubarb should be thawed and drained beforehand, so your end product turns out crisp, but not soggy.
  • tip 2
    Fruit crisps are not only easy but versatile too. Have peaches, pears or raspberries around? Why not transform them into dessert. Learn how in our article about How to Make Fruit Crisp with Any Ingredients.
  • tip 3
    Crisps can be stored covered and refrigerated for up to 5 days. Leftovers are delicious served reheated or eaten cold out of the refrigerator.
