I have another rhubarb recipe! Rhubarb is the one fruit I eagerly anticipate every Spring. I love the sweet/sour tartness of the crisp, delicious stalks of fruit. My favorite thing as a kid was to pick it fresh and dip it into a bowl of sugar. A little bit of sugar with each bite!
Every time I get my hands on some rhubarb I always seem to make it into a crisp. The crumble of the oatmeal and brown sugar with the tartness of the rhubarb just go so well together. I wanted to keep that same combination but have it in a bar form so that it would be easy to pack in the kids lunches. These Rhubarb Crumble Bars were the perfect solution.
When I finished making these bars I cooked up some leftover rhubarb so that my kids could try how delicious it is. One taste of the stewed rhubarb and they were asking for more! Since I froze a lot, I know I’ll be cooking and baking with it a lot more!
