Vegan Gluten-Free Raspberry Rhubarb Crisp

This is the ultimate lazy girls’ crisp. This rustic crisp is fuss-free and rustic and uses fresh or frozen fruit. The recipe is vegan, gluten-free, and only requires eight ingredients. Huzzah!

Add your fruit to a baking dish with butter and sprinkle a little sugar on top. This step is essential because we are using rhubarb, which is a relatively neutral fruit. The fruit won’t have the flavor or sweetness that you want with a crisp if this step is skipped.

We’re using oats, nuts, and seeds for the topping! This recipe was adapted from my Strawberry Nectarine Crisp, another summer must-try. The base is made up of almond meal, crushed nuts, and rolled oatmeal. Vegan butter (or extra virgin olive oil) adds moisture, while brown sugar brings sweetness.

It’s ready after 45 minutes or 1 hour in the oven! Invite your friends to the house immediately and enjoy!

This crisp is great for summer. It’s

Perfectly sweet and packed with fruit


Slightly Tart


The oats are a stud

Simple and hassle-free

Healthy enough to serve as a dessert at night or for brunch

This recipe is also highly customizable. Sub walnuts or extra almonds if you don’t want to use pecans. Substitute olive oil for vegan butter if you do not have any. If you don’t have rhubarb, you can use any summer fruit (blueberries or blackberries are a nice combination).
