Ingredients

For the crisp crust/topping:

  • 1 1/4 cups old fashioned rolled oats
  • 1 1/4 cups all purpose flour
  • 1/3 cup coconut sugar may substitute with granulated or brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 3/4 cup melted coconut oil may substitute with melted butter

For the filling:

  • 2 cups fresh raspberries
  • 2 large stalks rhubarb (about 1 lb., halved lengthwise and chopped into 1/2" chunks)
  • 1/2 cup coconut sugar
  • 2 tablespoons orange juice
  • 1 tablespoon orange zest
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons cornstarch
  • 1 tablespoon grated fresh ginger (optional)

Instructions 

  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Line an 8x8" square baking dish with parchment paper so that it hangs over the sides.  
  • In a medium bowl, stir together the oats, flour, coconut sugar, cinnamon, and salt.  Add the coconut oil and stir until moistened.
  • Press 2/3 of the crust-topping into the prepared pan.
  • Place the rhubarb, raspberries, coconut sugar, orange juice, cornstarch, and orange zest in a medium bowl and stir to combine.
  • Pour the filling over the crust and spread evenly. Sprinkle the filling with the remaining 1/3 of the vegan crumble over the fruit, and bake for 45 minutes, or until bubbly and golden brown.
  • Cool on a wire rack for a minimum of 3 hours or overnight until set. Cut into squares and enjoy!

Notes

  • Pro tip: No fresh raspberries? Use frozen! Simply thaw slightly and blot dry with a paper towel to remove excess liquid.
  • The raspberry rhubarb bars may be made up to one day in advance stored at room temperature.
  • Store leftover crisp bars in an air tight container at room temperature for up to 3 days or in the fridge for up to 5 days.
  • You could easily swap out the fresh raspberries for chopped fresh strawberries.
