Yield: 24 Servings

Crumb mixture
1 cup (110 gr) All-purpose flour
¾ cup rolled oats
200 gr (1 cup) Brown sugar; packed
115 gr (½ cup) safe margarine (e.g., vegan becel or lactose-free celeb); unsalted if possible
4 cups Rhubarb, cut in 1/2" pieces
  • Crumb mixture:  Mix flour, oatmeal, brown sugar and butter until crumbly. 
  • Press half of this mixture into greased 9" pan. Add rhubard.
  • Pour sauce over rhubarb. Top with other half crumb mixture.
  • Bake at 350F for 45 minutes.
  • Allow the cookies to cool overnight and solidify (else they are more like a crunch or crumble and should be eaten in a bowl).
Note : for the sauce, can use a bit less brown sugar, a bit less sugar, and add a teaspoon of ginger.
