Nectarine Rhubarb Crisp

nectarine rhubarb crisp

A fruit crisp is one of the easiest desserts to throw together, as it’s just a bit of fruit, oats, butter, and sugar in a casserole dish or pan, but I found an even faster way to make it. This nectarine rhubarb crisp recipe includes store-bought granola for a crunchy, sweet treat you can pull off in no time. I love the combination of tart rhubarb and sweet nectarines. I hope you’ll give this nectarine rhubarb crisp recipe a try sometime this summer!

If you grow it yourself, by now you should be swimming in rhubarb. Here are some tips on when and how to harvest it. For other rhubarb recipes, see my collection here.

If you ensure the rolled oats and granola are gluten-free, this recipe doesn’t call for any wheat products, so could be served to any friends who have have a gluten allergy or sensitivity.

Rhubarb Nectarine Crisp

Yield: 6

Fruit crisp is so easy to make, but I've made this version even quicker to throw together thanks to store-bought granola.


  • 6 Tbsp unsalted butter
  • 3 cups rhubarb
  • 3 nectarines
  • ¼ cup white sugar
  • 1 Tbsp lemon juice
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • Pinch salt
  • ½ cup rolled oats
  • ½ cup prepared granola


    Heat oven to 375 degrees. Grease an 8- or 9-inch square baking dish or cast iron skillet with butter. Toss rhubarb and nectarines chopped into 1 inch pieces with white sugar and lemon juice and zest, and spread in baking dish.

    Cut the 6 tablespoons butter into half inch chunks and place in a bowls along with the brown sugar, cinnamon, salt, oats and granola - mix with your hands breaking the butter chunk up into the mixture like you would for pie dough

    Crumble the topping over rhubarb and nectarine mixture and bake until golden and beginning to brown, 45 to 50 minutes.
