Easy Apple Noodle & Rhubarb Crisps

After seeing an uncanny amount of rhubarb recipes, I decided to order and try some rhubarb. Yes, up until a few days ago, I had never tried rhubarb.

What’s rhubarb like? It’s tart and savory. Paired with a sweet apple, you’d never imagine something so simple looking (a stalk) could taste so good.

Aside from incorporating one of springtime’s most popular ingredients, I’ve made an apple crisp that’s so ridiculously easy to make, you’ll be making it for dessert on a whim for the rest of spring.

Apples are probably tied with zucchini for “easiest vegetable to spiralize.” You literally just load them on the spiralizer – no prep required. Have you seen this video?

Just remember to take off the sticker (if you’re buying a grocery store that labels their produce) – I made that mistake and was really confused when I was chewing on adhesive.

I love these crisps because they apple and rhubarb do all of the work. As they roast slowly, they soften and their juices release and sweeten the crisp.

There are so many yummy and healthy granolas out there, so pick your favorite and sprinkle it on top of the apples and rhubarb at the end, roast for another 5 minutes and voila – a gourmet crisp, using only four ingredients (granola, apples, rhubarb and honey)!

I chose  Udi’s Gluten Free Vanilla Granola, which I had never tried before and it worked so well – vanilla with the apple and rhubarb is the perfect amount of sweet.

The granola heats up in those five minutes and completes the crisp. Instead of mixing flour with sugar and oats, choose a healthy granola (with recognizable ingredients!) and use that instead.

These crisps are perfect for a spring picnic or just a night in to treat yourself. And who doesn’t love a treat?

Have you tried rhubarb? What do you think?

This looks awesome! I love rhubarb with strawberries, but I never thought to pair it with apples. And I bet maple syrup would be a good complement for those of us who favor that over honey. Thanks for the delicious idea!
I'm totally going to spiralize an apple now-- it would taste so good in a slaw or some type of salad with cheese.
Laura Nugent says:
Rhubarb is my favorite for making pies which are not nearly as healthy and easy as this dish is. Can't wait to try it, it looks perfect! Thanks.
Rebecca says:
I am such a huge fan of rhubarb! I used to pick it all the time with my grandma when I was young! I am always looking for new rhubarb recipes! This one is fantastic! I really like the idea of spiraling the apples! Rebecca www.winnipegstyle.ca
shonalika says:
Not the world's biggest fan of rhubarb but I LOVE your spiralized apples! I don't actually own a spiralizer (I make courgette/zuccinni noodles with a cheese grater XD) wonder if it would work on apples. Can't hurt to try. Does the noodle serve any particular function, here, do you reckon, or is it more just a fun texture alternative to cubes?:)
Nic says:
Add some crystalized or fresh ginger to your granola for some zing. Delicious, also good without apples, one of my fav desserts with a scoop of ice cream or greek yoghurt.
I wasn't sure where to leave this msg since I couldn't find a place on your app, so I'm leaving it here. I just bought your app and am excited about using it. Is there a way that I can look at it horizontally on my ipad rather than vertically? Also, can you add something so that we can save the recipes to Pinterest vs. just Facebook? Thanks!! Love spiralizing...just started a few days ago, and it's now my favorite thing!! All your info has been most helpful in getting me going. Nancy

Thank you!!
robyn says:
is there a step missing about the ramekins? starts with step three of "take out the ramekins" - take em out of my cupboard?! and are they supposed to be greased at all?
Joan says:
I have made this several times. We love it. Wonder how it will be with strawberries when we can't get fresh rhubarb? We like this with toasted coconut Greek yogurt.
Debbie S. says:
The rest of you must have jumbo size ramekins. I could not begin to fit the fruit into four ramekins, let alone leave room for the topping.
EmH_5 says:
Made this as a treat dessert tonight and loved it! who would have thought an apple crumble could be so easy and healthy! I added ginger, cinnamon and a dollop of natural yoghurt to serve and it was perfect :) Next time might even do with half pear noodles too!
rachel says:
do you need to core the apple before you spiralize? won't you get seeds and tough chunks in there?
Ali Maffucci says:
You do not need to core! The seeds don't make it through the Inspiralizer, so they get jammed in the blades so when you're done, you just brush them out!
Carol says:
Fall is a great time to make this crisp, too, I still have rhubarb in my garden. Try a real maple syrup drizzle instead of the honey. Add a little cinnamon and a tad of syrup to your plain yogurt topping - delicious!! Thanks for this EASY, tasty recipe!

I have nothing prolific to say today (I’ve just been madly testing recipes for this project I’ll be announcing soon) except that today was the first day in my life that I actually enjoyed sliced tomatoes on a sandwich. 🍅 🍞⁣

I’m not a fan of raw tomatoes, except in something subtle like a pico de gallo or if they’re a tiny part of a meal, like a garnish. but today, I made this chickpea tuna salad melt with tomatoes and spinach and LOVED it. 👍🏼⁣

it got me thinking… I can’t be the only one. do you like raw tomatoes? 🤔

luca made a friend today! 👦🏼 🚴‍♂️⁣

one of the things that has made me sad during COVID has been that Luca hasn't spent much time with other kids his age. this summer, we had a little pod of a few kids, but slowly but surely, as the year went on, kids moved to the suburbs, enrolled in school (we didn't feel comfortable), and then as the temperature dropped, the rest of the kids stopped braving the cold and since we felt uncomfortable with indoor playdates, it was really just our little family hanging out. and Luca wasn't hanging out with anyone his age much. ⁣

I have so many thoughts on this. will this change his personality and social skills forever? will he be socially awkward? will he lose out on so many developmental milestones? will this affect his emotional awareness? the list goes on. I know it's only a year or so, but that's over 1/3 of his entire life!⁣

and now that we're in Florida, we just keep to ourselves at my parents' house and don't see any other kids. it's so nice to be together as a family, and I know so many families can't be together right now, so I'm so grateful for that. the other day, Luca saw a 7-year-old boy on a bike in my parents' neighborhood and he asked us if he could be his friend. I almost broke down in tears.⁣

so by chance, we were out on his bike this afternoon and sure enough, we saw the little boy again, riding his bike, with his mother. in that moment, I knew I had to make a move - so I called out to the mother and asked her, "I know this is going to sound weird, but my son would love to hang out with your son! I'd love to get your number so they can ride bikes together sometime!" I was so nervous, haha! ⁣

and just like that, Luca made a friend! they immediately started riding their bikes together (it was so cute I couldn't handle it!!!) and Roma even came a little bit later and literally slipped her hand into the little boy's hand, it was like she was starving for that connection. it was so adorable, and I'm so happy for Luca to have someone to safely play outside with and so I can shed some of this mama worry.⁣

as for these chocolate donuts, search the blog, they’re an oldie but a goodie! 🍩🍫

it's a mouthful, but it's mouth-watering. 👅 my TERIYAKI SALMON with RICED BUTTERNUT SQUASH and SESAME BROCCOLI 🥦  is live on the blog, and it's another must-add to your weekly meal plan. okay I say that all the time, but seriously - I'm only sharing recipes I make for our family, and these have all been slam dunks 🏀⁣

and last week I started the #inspiralizedmealplanideas hashtag so we'd have a running list of weekly meal ideas from this community, and it's a Monday thing, so tell me - what's ONE meal you're making this week? 🍴 leave it in the comments below and be sure to check back to see what other people are making and even SAVE this post for future reference! 📌⁣
