Strawberry-Rhubarb Crisp

Most medical professionals say gluten-free oats can be tolerated in limited amounts [up to 1/2 cup per day for adults]. They also suggest restricting oats for one year for those newly diagnosed.


Some celiacs will react to the protein found in oats [avenin], just as they react to the proteins in wheat, barley, rye.

If you choose to add oats to your diet, please make sure they are gluten-free purity protocol oats.

Filling Ingredients:
2 cups rhubarb - cut into 1" pieces
1 cup of strawberries. Cleaned, hulled and sliced.
1/4 cup of brown sugar, packed
1/4 teaspoon cinnamon (to taste)
2 tablespoons of Gluten-Free Sweet Rice Flour (
Bob's Red Mill)
2 teaspoons of lemon juice

Topping Ingredients:
1/2 cup Purity Protocol - Certified GF oats [

1/4 cup
Pamela's Baking & Pancake Mix
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 cup butter


Yield: 2 - 7oz Corningware Ramekins


Topping Directions:

Combine oats, brown sugar, GF flour, cinnamon in a mixing bowl. Cut in butter till mixture is like course crumbs.

Fruit Directions:

Mix all ingredients together in a bowl.
Divide mixture between two ramekins. The filling is almost to the top.
Sprinkle topping ingredients over the top. If you like lots of topping - add a good amount.
Bake at 350 for 30 minutes or until GBD (Golden Brown & Delicious)

Some spill over may occur when this bakes. Place ramekins in pan or on foil.

Make sure it's cooled sufficiently before serving. This allows the fruit to set up.


Different fruit modifications:

Apples, Pears or Peaches - coat fruit with 1.5 tablespoons of sugar instead of flour/sugar mixture written above.

Berries & Cherries (Blueberries, Raspberries) - use recipe as written above.

Coffee Cake



Peg ran across a recipe in Bon Appetit magazine showing all the variations of a yeast-dough. This set off a firestorm of ideas. She woke up early Saturday in anticipation of making this coffee cake.

Of course it was a wheat-based recipe, so it'd have to be converted.

She thought a pre-existing recipe might work well as a starting point. The recipe she used was that of my favorite flat bread [bread that I use for making sandwiches & buns]
