If you’re on the hunt for a rhubarb recipe that’s easy, delicious and totally kid-friendly, this Strawberry Rhubarb Crumble is perfect for you! It’s the perfect not-too-sweet treat with a crumbly oat topping and the season’s freshest produce.

Why You’ll Love This Strawberry Rhubarb Crumble Recipe

  • Easy to Make: There are only a few steps to making this delectable rhubarb dessert. Make the filling, add the crumble on top (no pie crust to fuss with!) and bake. It takes very little time to prepare. The magic happens in the oven!
  • Great Use for Rhubarb: Rhubarb is a fantastic ingredient often underutilized in desserts. Its tartness pairs beautifully with sweet fruits like strawberries, making it ideal for crumbles, pies, and other baked goods. Plus, rhubarb is rich in vitamins and a great source of dietary fiber.
  • Kid-Friendly: This dessert is sweet, slightly tart and has a delicious crumbly topping that kids will love! It’s a great recipe for kids to experience a vegetable they might not have been exposed to yet.
  • Not Too Sweet: Many rhubarb recipes call for a good deal of sugar to offset its mildly tart taste. But in this recipe, when paired with fresh sweet strawberries, the need to use so much sugar disappears, making it the perfect sweet but not-too-sweet dessert. If you want more “sweet but not to sweet desserts” try my Dark Chocolate Cupcakes, Passionfruit Pound Cake Muffins or these Peach & Strawberry Shortcakes!

The Ingredients

Strawberry rhubarb crumble ingredients.
  • Rhubarb: Rhubarb tastes a lot like a green apple in tartness mixed with a very tiny hint of celery that perfectly complements the sweetness of the strawberries.
  • Strawberries: Strawberries are naturally sweet and balance out the tart rhubarb flavor. Plus they add juiciness to the filling as it bakes. 
  • Lemon juice and zest: Lemon juice adds acidity to the strawberry-rhubarb filling helping balance out the flavors while the zest adds brightness and a small burst of citrusy flavor to the topping. 
  • Brown sugar: You don’t need a ton of brown sugar for this recipe, but just a little adds the perfect amount of sweetness to the filling and the crumble topping.
  • All purpose flour: This is the base of the topping, giving structure and texture.
  • Old fashioned oats: This gives more texture to the crumble topping and a subtle nutty flavor. 
  • Baking powder: Helps the topping rise so that it has perfect fluffy texture. 
  • Chilled unsalted butter: Using chilled butter helps the topping be firm yet tender, and chewy, with big chunks. If you use room temperature or melted butter the crumble topping will flatten out and be dense instead of light, fluffy and crumbly.

*For a complete list of ingredients and their measurements see the recipe card below*

Variations and Substitutions

  • Gluten-Free Substitute: Replace the all-purpose flour in the crumble topping with a gluten-free flour to make this recipe suitable for those with gluten sensitivities.
  • Mixed Berries: You could use a combination of blueberries, raspberries, and blackberries instead of strawberries in the filling and make a delicious mixed berry rhubarb crumble.

How to Make Strawberry Rhubarb Crumble

Strawberry rhubarb filling in mixing bowl.

Step 1: Prepare the filling by combining strawberries, rhubarb, lemon juice and brown sugar in a bowl. Stir until all the ingredients are coated.

Step 2: Place the first 5 crumble topping ingredients into a bowl and combine. Add the cold butter to the dry ingredients and crumble with your hands to form small pea-size clumps.

Step 3: Place filling in an oil sprayed 9-inch pie dish or an 8×8 baking dish. Crumble the topping on top of the filling, place dish on a foil lined baking sheet and bake for 40-45 minutes until golden.

Tips for This Recipe

  • Let it Cool: Allow the rhubarb crumble to cool slightly before serving. This helps the filling set and makes the crumble easier to serve. Serve warm with vanilla ice cream or whipped cream for an irresistible dessert.
  • Cold Butter: Use cold butter cut into small pieces or grated. This helps create a crumbly texture. You can use your fingers to incorporate the butter into the dry ingredients until it forms pea-sized pieces.

Storage and Freezing Instructions

To Store: Allow strawberry rhubarb crumble to cool completely then store in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 3 days.

To Freeze: Allow the crumble to cool completely then wrap tightly and freeze for up to 3 months. When ready to enjoy, thaw in the fridge overnight and reheat at 375°F for 20-25 minutes or until warmed through and the topping is crisp.

FAQs

Can I use frozen fruit for strawberry rhubarb crumble?

I suggest using fresh rhubarb and strawberries for the best flavor. Frozen can work in a pinch, but fresh fruit gives the crumble a superior texture. If you do use frozen rhubarb and strawberries, just make sure to thaw and drain them well to prevent excess moisture from affecting the crumble’s texture.

What can I serve with strawberry rhubarb crumble?

This crumble is delicious on its own, but you can make it ever better with a scoop of vanilla ice cream, a dollop of whipped cream, or even a drizzle of custard on top.

Can I freeze strawberry rhubarb crumble?

Yes, you can freeze this crumble either before or after baking. Wrap it tightly to keep out air and store it in the freezer for up to 3 months. When you’re ready to enjoy it, thaw it in the refrigerator overnight. If it’s unbaked, bake as directed. If it’s already baked, reheat for 20-25 minutes until warm and crispy.

Tart rhubarb balances sweet, jammy strawberry flavor in this irresistible springtime dessert. If you can find rhubarb, you’re in for a treat!

This simple crisp recipe requires only some chopping and stirring and yields delicious results after a 40-minute bake. I’ve modified my original recipe to call for my favorite oat and almond flour-based topping, which happens to be gluten-free.

strawberry rhubarb crisp ingredients

This flavor combination was inspired by my friend Stephanie. She makes the best strawberry rhubarb pie, and I’m still daydreaming about the pie that inspired this recipe over ten years ago. Stephanie has her flaky pie dough technique down pat and bakes pies for all occasions. Maybe you are lucky enough to have a master pie maker in your life, too.

I am not Stephanie and I do not bake pies. I barely have the foresight or patience to chill pie dough, though I’ve been working on my technique over the years. Crisps are gloriously easy. No waiting. No fuss.

Bring your strawberries and rhubarb home and turn on the oven. This recipe is ready to go! Make it while you can.

Looking for a delicious and easy vegetable side dish? This Air Fryer Bacon Wrapped Asparagus is the answer! The crispy bacon wrapped around this spring vegetable is out of this world tasty! In less than 30 minutes you’ll have a flavorful, low carb vegetable side that everyone will love.

If you’ve been following me for a while, you know I have a deep love for my air fryer. When I tell you we use it twice a day, I’m not exaggerating. Air Fryers are so versatile you can make tons of easy recipes in the air fryer. It’s the best way to get crispy yet tender vegetables that will make everyone in your house a veggie lover. We use ours to reheat leftovers, make snacks like Air Fryer Crispy Chickpeas or even to roast a whole chicken! This time of year, our favorite recipe in the air fryer is this crispy and delicious bacon wrapped asparagus.

Why You’ll Love This Recipe

  • Quick and Easy: Using the air fryer is the easiest and fastest way to make bacon wrapped asparagus. It’s one of the best ways to get crispy yet tender asparagus in about 25 minutes start to finish! We’ve been sautéing asparagus with lemon for years, but once I got my air fryer several years ago, we didn’t look back. 
  • Pairs Well with Many Main Dishes: Bacon wrapped asparagus is a great side dish for many mains. Serve this recipe with mains like Simple Broiled Salmon, Pretzel Fried Chicken, Pan Seared Beef Tenderloin or this Southern Style Pork Tenderloin.
  • Get Kids to Eat Their Veggies: Anything that’s wrapped in bacon is most likely going to be a hit with kids (and adults). In addition, air frying the asparagus gives the spears the perfect crispy texture that kids love too. No soggy, limp asparagus here!

The Ingredients

If you couldn’t tell by the name, you only need two ingredients to make this recipe.

  • Asparagus: I go for thicker asparagus spears for this recipe. It helps the bacon have time to get crispy without burning your asparagus. I have tips below if you can only find thin asparagus though!
  • Bacon: Opt for a standard cut over thick cut bacon. If you use thick cut you’ll most likely end up with undercooked bacon and burnt asparagus.

How to Make Air Fryer Bacon Wrapped Asparagus

Step 1: Break or cut off the woodsy ends of asparagus. They have a natural break if you snap them at the ends.

Step 2: Cut or slice bacon in half so you have 16 pieces.

Step 3: Starting in the middle of the asparagus, wrap the bacon around the asparagus towards the bottom allowing the top and bottom to peak out. Place asparagus in air fryer tray leaving a little space between the pieces.

Step 4: Air fry at 400°F for 15-18 minutes or until bacon is starting to get crispy and asparagus is tender. 

Tips for Success

  • Choose thick asparagus. For this recipe, thicker stalks of asparagus work best. If you can only find thin stalks, you can make asparagus bundles. Wrap bacon around 3-4 asparagus spears (depending on how big they are) and air fry until bacon is cooked through and asparagus are tender.
  • Use thin strips of bacon. A standard cut bacon is the best option for bacon wrapped asparagus in the air fryer. Thick cut bacon won’t cook through and get crispy before the asparagus spears burn.
  • Don’t overcrowd the air fryer. If your air fryer isn’t big enough for each asparagus spear to have a little space around it, you may want to air fry these in batches for the best crispy results.
  • Check on the asparagus. Every air fryer cooks slightly differently. Keep an eye on your asparagus to make sure everything is cooking to your liking.

Frequently Asked Questions

Can I prepare bacon wrapped asparagus ahead of time?

Yes, you can prepare the bacon-wrapped asparagus ahead of time and store them in the refrigerator until you’re ready to cook. Just make sure they are tightly wrapped or covered to prevent them from drying out.

How do I store and reheat leftover air fryer bacon wrapped asparagus?

In my opinion, bacon wrapped asparagus is best when enjoyed fresh out of the air fryer, but if you have leftovers, you can store them in an airtight container in the refrigerator for 2-3 days. When you’re ready to enjoy them again, reheat them in your air fryer at 400°F for a few minutes until they’re warm and crispy. You could also reheat them in the oven at the same temperature. Just remember to avoid the microwave to keep that delightful crispiness intact!

Make it Vegetarian: While the bacon is the star of the show in this recipe, you could absolutely leave it out if you wanted this recipe to be vegan or vegetarian. Toss the asparagus in a bit of olive oil with salt and pepper, air fry it for the same amount of time and you’ll still have a delicious result.

muesli recipe

Looking for a wholesome, make-ahead breakfast recipe? Muesli is the answer! Muesli is essentially homemade oat cereal, which originated in Switzerland. Just add milk, and maybe some fresh fruit. It stores well in the freezer for up to six months.

Not all mueslis are created equally—some are bland and blah. Not this one! This nutritious muesli recipe offers loads of texture and flavor. It features old-fashioned oats, nuts and seeds, optional coconut, and chopped dried fruit.

muesli ingredients

Toasting the muesli in the oven makes a world of difference. It brings out the savory, nutty flavors in the oats, nuts and seeds and makes your kitchen smell lovely. The oven’s heat also firms up the oats a bit, offering even more texture. It’s absolutely worth the effort!

My other trick is adding a maple syrup splash to the mixture before toasting. The subtle sweetness substantially improves the flavor.

You probably have everything you need to make muesli already, so let’s preheat the oven and start mixing. Below, you’ll find many options for adapting the recipe to your pantry.
