  • 3 cups rhubarb, washed, trimmed and sliced into 1/4-inch slices
  • Zest and juice of 1 orange
  • 1 cup cane sugar

  1. Preheat oven to 375° F.
  2. Place rhubarb, orange juice and zest and sugar in a large saucepan over medium-high heat.
  3. Cook 10-15 minutes, adding strawberries halfway through the cooking time. Fold in ginger. Cook until rhubarb is tender, stirring often.
  4. Meanwhile, place all dry topping ingredients into a medium- sized bowl and combine well. Add coconut oil and mix thoroughly.

  6. Bake 10-15 minutes until topping is nicely browned. Allow to cool slightly before serving.

*Note: Coconut is the fruit of the palm tree and not usually considered a tree nut. But if you or your child are tree-nut allergic, ask your doctor whether it’s OK to eat.
