It is summertime and do you know what grows in summer? Rhubarb! Wahoo. Are you as excited as I am? Growing up we had a rhubarb plant that we would grab stalks of and snack on while playing in the backyard. Now as an adult I like a little sweeter flair to my Rhubarb and my favorite way to enjoy it is in this Rhubarb Strawberry Peach Crumble recipe. This combines everything you love about summer and summer fresh, fruits in one delicious dessert. You can of course leave out the peaches and have it be more of a traditional cobbler but I love the different flavor that the peaches add with everything else. I also used my Thrive Freeze Dried Strawberries that are on sale this month and it made this recipe even more simple and healthy.
Another aspect to this crumble that makes it so special is I use only coconut sugar instead of regular sugar. Yes, you could use regular brown or white sugar, but I LOVE the caramel, nutty flavor of the coconut sugar. You don’t have to use quite as much of it to get the caramel flavor you are craving in a dish like this. The syrup of the cobbler makes this crumble so heavenly, especially when you add a scoop of vanilla ice cream on the top. From start to finish this is a sweet treat that will please your friends and family for many summer’s to come!

- 4 cups rhubarb diced
- 2 cups strawberries core removed and diced
- 2 cups peaches diced
- 1/2 cup coconut sugar
- Dash salt
- 1 Tbs. lemon juice
- 2 Tbs. cornstarch
- 2 sticks butter
- 3/4 cup coconut sugar
- Dash salt
- 1/2 tsp. cinnamon
- 2 cups regular oats
- 2 Tbs. cornstarch

- Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Trim the ends of each rhubarb pieces in case they are hard or damaged. Cut the rhubarb into 1/4 inch, long slices and dice into small pieces. Dice the strawberries and add those to the rhubarb as well. If you are using freeze dried strawberries, just put them straight into the rhubarb and mix. Rinse the peaches, cut in half, remove the pit and dice the fruit into small pieces. Toss the fruit in the coconut sugar, add the salt, lemon juice and cornstarch and toss until coated.
- Pour the fruit mixture into 4 ramekin dishes about 6 inches long and 3 inches wide. Or, pour into a 9x13 pan while you make the crumble.
- For the crumble, place the butter in a bowl and soften for 20-30 seconds. Add the coconut sugar, salt, cinnamon, oats and cornstarch. Toss until combined. Sprinkle the crumble mixture over the fruit mixture until covered. Bake at 350 for 15-20 degrees, or until the top is golden and the rhubarb is soft. Serve warm with vanilla ice cream.
