The rules of the dare only require this to be posted not blogged but why not. Blogging is posting right Skinny/Terry/Sandy/Nadine? I'll go ahead and post the link to our chat thread just in case.
(Did you know that rhubarb is actually a VEGETABLE?) Very high in potassium which many of us are short in. I know, I hear groans from some of the BLCers involved in this challenge who are already grumbling about 4 CUPS of brussels sprouts this weekend and now I'm suggesting that rhubarb is not only palpable but one of my favourite healthy recipes? I LOVE it and here in the Two Acre Woods I have LOTS of it too! Bon Appetit!

Nothing says spring like rhubarb. Quick-to-prepare, single-serving fruit crisps like this one are an easy way to get dessert on the table anytime. When buying or picking rhubarb, select stalks that are firm and red—avoid ones that are soft and waggly. And if you slice it very thinly, there's no need to peel off any outer strings. (NOTE: I do anyway)
2 servings | Active Time: 15 minutes | Total Time: 50 minutes
1 cup thinly sliced rhubarb
1/2 cup chopped peeled apple
3 tablespoons granulated sugar
1 teaspoon instant tapioca
1/4 teaspoon plus 1/8 teaspoon ground cinnamon, divided
2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
2 tablespoons old-fashioned rolled oats, (not steel-cut or instant)
1 1/2 tablespoons packed dark brown sugar
1 tablespoon finely chopped pecans
1 tablespoon unsalted butter, melted
2 teaspoons pure maple syrup
1/8 teaspoon salt
Preheat oven to 350°F.
Toss rhubarb, apple, granulated sugar, tapioca and 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon in a medium bowl. Divide between two 10-ounce (1 1/4-cup) oven-safe ramekins or custard cups.
Mix flour, oats, brown sugar, pecans, butter, syrup, salt and the remaining 1/8 teaspoon cinnamon in a small bowl until crumbly. Sprinkle over the rhubarb mixture.
Bake until bubbling and lightly browned, about 30 minutes. Cool for 5 minutes before serving.
