Gluten-Free Girl's Rhubarb Cobbler

Make Gluten-Free Girl's spring-perfect cobbler with certified gluten-free oats or quinoa flakes and farm-fresh rhubarb.

With spring finally in full bloom, rhubarb is back in the farmers’ markets and our gardens. If you’re anything like us, you’ll want to eat it every day until you’re tired of it. Sure, there’s rhubarb-strawberry pie, but this cobbler is wonderfully quick and easy to prepare and happy in the eating.

If you find you cannot eat oats, even if they are certified gluten-free, you might want to try quinoa flakes here instead. Don’t worry about the mess of the juices bubbling over the pan. That’s how you know this dessert is done.

Gluten-Free Rhubarb Cobbler

Yield: 6 servings
Ingredients:
2 cups chopped rhubarb, cut into 1-inch pieces
1/4 cup chopped crystallized ginger
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
Zest and juice of 1 orange
1/3 cup honey
40 grams (about 1/4 cup) brown rice flour
1 cup certified gluten-free rolled oats (or quinoa flakes)
1/4 cup tightly packed muscovado sugar
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
60 grams (about 1/4 cup) butter, slightly softened, cut into 6 pieces

Directions:

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.

Combine the rhubarb, ginger, cinnamon, orange zest, orange juice, and the honey in a 9-inch pie pan. Toss them all around until everything is coated with the honey. Pat the fruit down into the pie pan.

In a large bowl, combine the brown rice flour, oats or quinoa flakes, muscovado sugar, cinnamon, and pieces of butter. Using your hands, mix everything until it feels like damp crumbs the size of peas.

Sprinkle the topping evenly over the fruit.

Bake until the topping is browned and the fruit is bubbling. Take the cobbler out of the oven and let it cool for 30 minutes before eating.
