Recipe: Strawberry Rhubarb Hemp Crisp

This Sunday is Mother's Day, and to celebrate I made this delicious and healthy dessert on WWLP-TV's Mass Appeal entertainment program. 

Strawberry Rhubarb Hemp Crisp is the perfect dessert for a summery day like today. It's refreshingly sweet and tart and packed with antioxidants, Omega-3 oil and spices that will make you feel good. 

It's also allergen-friendly since it's gluten-free.  Instead of using wheat flour, I substituted a high protein gluten-free flour made from chickpeas and also added some almond meal.  The topping is slightly crisp and toffee-like on top with just the right amount of gooey-ness underneath.

It's a delicious dessert with none of the guilt! You can get the recipe and see me demonstrate how to make it on the link below. More quick and easy recipes like this one can be found in my cookbook, Easy Peasy Vegan Eats.

From Ashley, Seth, and all of us on the set of Mass Appeal, Happy Mother's Day!!  

Strawberry Rhubarb Hemp Crisp
When strawberries and rhubarb are in season this is the dessert to make. The combination of sweet and tart will make you smile. Garnish with fresh strawberries and edible flowers to make a pretty presentation.

Filling Ingredients:
3 cups strawberries, sliced, reserving about 1/2 cup for garnish
1 cup rhubarb, diced into 1-inch pieces (fresh or frozen)
1/2 cup vegan sugar
1 tsp vanilla
1/4 tsp cinnamon
1 Tbl corn starch
pinch of sea salt

Topping Ingredients:
1/2 cup Erewhon Buckwheat Hemp Flakes
1/2 cup almond flour
1/2 cup all purpose gluten-free flour
1 Tbl hemp seeds
1 tsp cinnamon
1/3 cup vegan sugar
1/3 cup coconut oil
1/4 tsp sea salt
2 Tbl sliced almonds

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. In an 8″x8″ pan, toss together filling ingredients, then set aside. In a food processor, pulse buckwheat hemp flakes, almond flour, gluten-free flour, and hemp seeds several times until flakes are slightly crushed. Add cinnamon, sugar, coconut oil, and sea salt and pulse until they begin to clump together. Sprinkle topping loosely over the filling mixture, leaving spaces around the edges of the pan, then sprinkle with sliced almonds. Cover with foil and place on cookie sheet to catch any drips. Bake for 30-40 minutes or until fruit filling is bubbly, then remove cover and bake an additional 10-15 minutes to crisp the top. Remove and let cool before serving.
