Chef John's Rhubarb Crisp

Rating: 4.5 stars 103
If you've never tried rhubarb before, this is the recipe for you. The sweet, crisp topping taking the edge off the tart, tangy fruit, both benefiting from a creamy scoop of vanilla ice cream. This is a great, old-fashioned American dessert. You can substitute all-purpose flour for the whole wheat flour.

Ginger Rhubarb Crisp

A tangy crisp with a hint of ginger and a nice crunch to the topping. The custard filling is soft and creamy, yet holds together beautifully. This makes a large crisp - great to take to a potluck or party.

Low Sugar Strawberry Rhubarb Crunch

Rating: 4.5 stars 171
A lot of rhubarb recipes add a large amount of sugar. This keeps the sweetener to a minimum so you can enjoy the tang of the rhubarb! Delicious-- enjoy! Use sugar in place of honey if you like.

"Bluebarb" Blueberry Rhubarb Crisp

Rating: 4.5 stars 17
I created this dessert because I still had tons of rhubarb hanging around in my freezer and I was sick of the go-to strawberry/rhubarb combination. It turned out amazingly! The tart taste of rhubarb is, not surprisingly, complemented by blueberry. Delicious with a scoop of vanilla ice cream.

Rhubarb Crumble Bars

For this crumble bar recipe, I substituted 1 cup fresh blueberries for approximately 3 cups of chopped rhubarb. I also could not find coconut sugar, so I had to use just regular sugar.

Glenn's Rhubarb Crumble

Rating: 4.5 stars 49
I modified this recipe with an extra 1/4 cup white sugar. I also added a modifier so that you can make extra streusel to smash around the bottom and sides to form a crust. The crumble on the top is extremely delicious!
