We combined our love for oatmeal breakfasts with our love for fruit crumble desserts to create this healthy Strawberry Rhubarb Crumble recipe that can be enjoyed any time of day! Our freezers are bursting at the seams with rhubarb fresh from the garden so we have been relishing all the different ways we can work it to our menu.
