Strawberry Rhubarb Crumble
3 1/2 cups diced fresh rhubarb
2 1/2 cups diced fresh strawberries
2 cups granular sweetener (any "white" kind works best)
6 tablespoons whole wheat flour
1 cup brown sugar
1 cup rolled oats
1/2 cup protein powder (vanilla or flavorless)
2 cups whole wheat flour
1/2 cup soy margarine
1/2 cup unsweetened applesauce
This is a "veganized" version of my Grandma's favorite dessert. I always get a tad bit sentimental when I prepare it!
Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
Combine the rhubarb, strawberries, granular sweetener and flour in a bowl. This mixture should turn gooey and very un-appetizing. Place this in a greased (or cooking-sprayed) 13 X 9 inch baking dish.
Combine the remaining dry ingredients and mix well. I add protein powder to boost the non-existent nutrition in this recipe. You can replace it with flour if you like.
Cut in the margarine and applesauce, and then sprinkle/crumble this over the rhubarb mixture in the baking dish.
Bake for 40 minutes
(You can add milled flax seeds to the flour mixture, if you wish. You can also use apples or other fruit, but omit 1 tablespoon of flour in first mixture)
