VEGAN & GLUTEN-FREE BERRY BASIL RHUBARB CRISP
1 1/4 cups strawberries 1 handful of fresh basil chopped1 cup blueberries2 1/4 cups rhubarb3 table spoons of sugar (I use coconut)1 cup gluten-free rolled oats1/2 cup coconut flour or almond flour1/4 cup agave or maple syrup1 pinch sea salt5 tbsp room temperature Coconut Oil1 lemon
Preheat oven to 350 degrees and grease a baking dish. I use 8x8 baking dish.Add washed fruit and basil directly to the dish and toss with sugar, and 1 tablespoon of coconut flour (or your flour of choice).Add zest of one lemon and juice of one half of the lemon. Let sit for 10 minutes.Now it’s time to make the topping! Add crisp ingredients (remaining flour, agave/syrup, salt, oats, coconut oil) to a mixing bowl and combine together until all ingredients are mixed (I use my hands). Add to the top of the fruit mixture.Bake for 45-50 minutes or until the fruit is bubbling and the top is crisp and golden brown. Check mid-way through to make sure the top is not burning. (You can also cover with foil for half of the baking time to prevent this.)Cool before serving. I serve with whipped cream or ice cream!
