How many of you have ever tried rhubarb? It’s a fairly new vegetable to me. Nick’s mom gave us two rhubarb plants for our garden this year and a co-worker brought a bunch of rhubarb into work to give away. So you know what that means– time to make something yummy!

This recipe is super easy, takes few ingredients, and is absolutely delicious.
Topping
3/4 cup all purpose flour
3/4 cup (packed) brown sugar
1/2 cup oats
1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
6 tbsp. (3/4 stick) unsalted butter, room temperature
1/2 cup chopped almonds of walnuts 
Mix the first four ingredients together in a medium bowl. Add in butter until mixture begins to clump together. Mix in nuts.

Filling

1/2 lb (~4 cups) apples, peeled, cored & cut into 1/2-in pieces

3/4 lb (~3 cups) rhubarb, cut into 1/2-in pieces
3 tbsp sugar
2 tsp all purpose flour
1 tsp vanilla extract

 

 
Preheat oven to 400 deg F. Combine all ingredients in a large bowl and stir to coat apples and rhubarb in the sugar, flour and vanilla. Transfer mixture into a glass baking dish (8x8x2).
Sprinkle topping evenly over filling. Bake ~45 minutes or until fruit is tender when pierced with a knife. Topping should be crispy, but if it begins to brown too much, you can cover with aluminum foil.

the finished product – yum! 
This treat was an absolute hit in the office.
This recipe will liberally serve 16 people!
