Crisps are often laden with sugar. This one is perfectly sweet without all of the refined sugar, and the seeds and almond meal provide healthy essential fats and protein. Enjoy.

4 cups total strawberry and rhubarb, chopped
2 Tbsp honey
1 cup gluten-free oats
1/2 cup almond meal
1/4 cup ground seeds (such as hemp and flax)
2 tsp cinnamon
1/3 cup maple syrup
1/3 cup coconut oil, melted
Pinch sea salt

Preheat oven to 350° F and grease an 8-by-8-inch baking dish.

In a mixing bowl, combine rhubarb, strawberry and honey. Mix thoroughly and add to baking dish.

Add all other crisp ingredients to a mixing bowl and mix well.

Top the fruit with the crisp and bake for 30 minutes.

Let cool for 10 minutes and serve on top of dairy-free ice cream or top with coconut whipped cream.
