  • 2 cups rhubarb sliced, (3 stalks)
  • 2 cups strawberries sliced, (16 oz.)
  • 1 cup blueberries
  • 1/4 cup blackberries
  • 2 tbsp cane sugar
  • 3 tbsp arrowroot starch

For the crumble topping:

  • 1 1/4 cup almond flour
  • 3/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1/4 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/3 cup butter melted


  • Preheat oven to 350°.
  • Add rhubarb and berries to a greased pie pan, then pour the sugar and arrowroot on top. Use a spoon to stir everything together so that the berries are coated with the arrowroot.
  • In a separate bowl, combine the flour, sugar and cinnamon and stir together. Pour the melted butter over top, then use a spoon to stir everything together. The mixture should be crumbly--that's a good thing!
  • Use your hands to sprinkle the almond flour crumble over top of the fruit mixture, making sure all the fruit is covered.
  • Bake the crisp for 35-40 minutes, or until fruit is bubbling around the edges and the top is golden brown.
  • Remove dessert from the oven, wait 5-10 minutes before digging in; it's delicious eaten on its own or with ice cream.


Substitutions: Butter - regular or dairy free; Sugar - can use ONLY cane sugar or coconut sugar if you don't want to use brown sugar; Berries - don't have to use all 3, can use just 1 kind if you prefer, just make sure to use 3 1/2 cups total 
To freeze: If you want to make this ahead of time, prep it as the recipe states, but don't bake it. Instead, cover it with plastic wrap for up to 2 days. Then, when you're ready to bake, simply place it from the freezer into the oven. Just know that you'll have to bake it for longer, so keep an eye on it!
