Vanilla Rhubarb Crumble Granola

If time were a horse galloping in the prairie I would lasso it cowboy-style and bring it to a halt. It seems I’m 3 days behind all the time; when I think it’s Monday, it turns out it’s already Thursday, the weekend is nearly upon me and I haven’t finished half the tasks I was meant to. This means weekends do not exist anymore – but let’s be honest, when you’re a student, you rarely have weekends, anyway. The past four years have been a blur.

It’s rhubarb season. For another moment, at least, and then it’ll be gone. I’ve pretty much missed strawberry season already, but I’ll be damned if I miss blueberry season! *Grits her teeth and glares at Time.* I already posted a gluten-free strawberry rhubarb crumble last summer so this year I wanted to give you something a little similar, but a little different; a little indulgent, and very much weekend-food: Vanilla Rhubarb Crumble Granola. It’s like having rhubarb crumble for breakfast, or granola for dessert… whichever, does it matter? Just dig in.

(It’s a short post, I realise. I’m busy tackling writing this Dissertation, which is taking up 90% of my brain capacity. Apologies. I hate being busy. I’m not one of those people who relish in the Western culture of busyness, I swear.)

Vanilla Rhubarb Crumble Granola

  • Servings: 2-3 servings, depending how much you like sharing or how large your appetite is in the morning
  • Print

Note: It’s best to eat this fresh, but if you’re cooking just for yourself, it will keep a second day as long as you store it in the fridge. It’s not bad cold but I prefer it hot. 

Granola ingredients:

100g (1 cup) oats (not instant)
20g (1/3 cup) chopped almonds
40g (1/3 cup) pumpkin seeds
40g (1/3 cup) sunflower seeds
1 tbsp maple syrup
2 tbsp coconut oil, melted
1 tsp vanilla paste or extract

Rhubarb crumble ingredients:

1 stick of rhubarb, chopped
1 tbsp maple syrup

To serve:

vanilla soy yogurt

Pre-heat the oven to 200ºC (400ºF). Grease a small roasting tin.

Mix all the granola ingredients together in a bowl and set aside.

Cook the rhubarb and maple syrup in a wee saucepan for about ten minutes, or until the rhubarb has softened. Mix into the granola ingredients.

Spread it all n the baking tray. Bake for 15 minutes.

Cool slightly before serving with fresh, cold vanilla soy yogurt.

I haven’t got much to say, so tell me how you’re making the most of the summer fruits season?

  1. I’ve recently fallen in love with granola so this is a must try! I used to have a little rhubarb garden, which I miss like crazy this time of year. I hear ya though, time is mind boggling! One minute you’re barefoot in a garden and the next you’re serving coffee to strangers.
