Ingredients
  

  • 2 tbsp cornstarch - + 2 tbsp water
  • ½ cup maple syrup
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 5 cups rhubarb - chopped in about ½ inch pieces

For the crumble topping

  • 1 cup rolled oats
  • ½ cup almond flour
  • ½ cup pecan or walnut - roughly chopped
  • pinch of salt
  • ¼ cup maple syrup
  • 2 tbsp coconut oil - melted

Instructions
 

  • Pre-heat the oven to 375º.

Prepare the fruit base

  • Combine the cornstarch with the 2 tbsp of cold water in a small bowl and stir to dissolve all the clumps.
  • In the bottom of a baking dish (I used a 8 x 10 in dish), add the maple syrup, vanilla extract and the cornstarch mixture and stir. Then, add the chopped rhubarb and stir to combine. Set aside.

Prepare the crumble

  • In a medium bowl, combine all the crumble ingredients together and stir to combine. Make sure to use melted coconut (melt for a few seconds first in the microwave if necessary).
  • Distribute the crumble topping mixture evenly over the rhubarb in the baking dish. Then, gently press with your hand or spoon.
  • Bake in the oven for 35-40 minutes or until slightly browned on top and bubbly on the side (watch so it does not burn). Then, let it cool for about 10 minutes before eating.
