Shopping farmers? markets and roadside fruit and vegetable stands is one of my favorite things to do. This summer I coupled rhubarb with strawberries and raspberries and made a delightful (& super easy) gluten free oatmeal crisp!
Other favorite summer combinations include peaches and pecans or mixed berries. Pretty much anything goes with this easy gluten free oatmeal crisp. I’d love to hear what combos you love, too!
Gluten free peach-blueberry oatmeal crisp
In the fall I switch gears to making apple concoctions (apple + cranberries is incredible!), and since I froze my early season raspberries, I can still combine the two for a fantastically festive fall dessert!
It?s good to know I?m not the only one thinking this way. In 2011 here in Maryland, our First Lady launched ?Chop Chop Maryland? at the Government House, and my kids and I were honored to have been invited to attend.
The initiative, a state-wide effort to support the efforts of Michelle Obama?s ?Let?s Move? campaign against childhood obesity, focuses on getting kids into the kitchen with fun, healthy and local foods. The state teamed up with Sally Sampson?s Chop Chop Magazine (?The Fun Cooking Magazine for Families?) to create this new initiative with monthly recipes featured online, at local non-profits and health organizations, and sent via text message.
Dr. Judith Palfrey, the head of the ?Let?s Move? campaign, joined with my kids and others to make a local apple crisp as the first ?Chop Chop Maryland? recipe. Although it wasn?t gluten-free (they used wheat flour and non-certified gluten free oats), it easily could have been, leading me to share my gluten free version then, and to reshare it now.
Whether you hit the farmer?s market, grow your own fruit, find frozen berries in your freezer, chop apples, or otherwise, you need to try this quick gluten free oatmeal crisp. It?s a real crowd pleaser and an easy way to get kids cooking with you in the kitchen as well!
