Oaty Rhubarb Crumble Recipe

We absolutely love crumble in our house and as we have rhubarb growing in our garden, oaty rhubarb crumble is probably our favourite dessert. It’s a dessert that reminds me of my own childhood, growing rhubarb in my childhood garden too and I am sure it will be a dessert that reminds LP and Little Man of their childhood too later in life.

Recipe: Rhubarb Crumble

What makes this crumble better than others?

The oat crumble topping in this recipe make it so different to a traditional crumble. The mix of oats and chopped nuts add a really moreish quality. You could also sprinkle over demerara sugar if you wanted for a little extra crunch to the golden brown crumble topping.

The topping works well on an oaty apple crumble too – full of bramley apples. Whatever you decide I’m sure you’ll all really enjoy this classic bake.

I love a nice easy fruit crumble and it always feels a bit more healthy than a big chocolate pudding. The whole family always love a crumble and there are so many crumble recipes around that I thought it only right to share our favourite one too.

If you’re looking for alternatives try our plum crumble, nectarine crumble or strawberry and vanilla crumble too.
