Easiest Ever Gluten-Free Fruit Crisp

I made this yesterday for my son’s graduation party.  I created it off the top of my head, and everyone loved it.  I also made a regular crisp with wheat flour, but everyone seemed to prefer this one.  You can use any combination of fruit.  I like the fruit in my crisps to be slightly tart, as it is here.  If you’re using all rhubarb or other non-sweet fruit, you could increase the sugar a bit.  If using all strawberries or other very sweet fruit, you could decrease it.  The masa harina (corn flour) may seem an unusual choice, but it simplifies having to use a mix of gluten-free flours, and does not add any unusual taste or texture.   This is easy and yields delicious results!

Here’s the recipe:

Butter or oil a 13 x 9 glass baking pan with gluten free margarine, butter or oil. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

In mixing bowl, toss together:

  • 5-6 cups quartered fresh strawberries
  • 5-6 cups rhubarb diced rhubarb cut into ½ inch pieces (for estimating purposes, 1 stalk of rhubarb equals roughly 1 cup diced)
  • 2 level tablespoons corn starch (gluten-free)
  • 2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
Pour fruit mixture into prepared pan and bake in preheated oven for 15-20 minutes, or until fruit begins to release juices and begin to bubble.  While fruit is baking, toss together the topping:
  • 1 cup masa harina corn flour
  • 1 cup gluten free oats (or substitute sliced almonds if you don’t tolerate oats)
  • ½ cup packed brown sugar
  • ½ to ¾ cup chopped pecans or walnuts
  • 1/3 cup gluten free margarine or equivalent amount of walnut oil
  • 2 level teaspoons of cinnamon
  • ¼ teaspoon nutmeg
Mix with fingers until evenly distributed.  Check consistency by grabbing a bunch of the crumble topping in your hand and squeezing firmly.  Mixture should hold together but should crumble easily again with your fingers.  If it does not stick together at all, you could add a little more oil or margarine.  Crumble topping over fruit mixture and return to oven for 25 minutes or until topping is lightly browned, and fruit filling is bubbling around edges and slightly thickened.

Cool briefly to allow it to thicken, but remember that fruit crisps are best when served slightly warm.

You would think that there is enough people out there, people with celiac disease, that we'd be able to push for a better standard than 20ppm. The problem is the FDA. Too much lobbying involved. It's no different than the fight people are having with Monsanto. I hear that there are several medications that are showing promise in Canada who I think also has a better standard than us.(not positive about that though)

Make sure that you ask the doctor how long she has to stop the supplements before you have her levels tested and be sure to take them all with you when you have the appointment so the doctor knows what she is taking.

Talk to your doctor. With your family history and symptoms he/she may be able to diagnose based on resolution of your symptoms and family history. Also check with your local hospital if it has it's own lab. Mine covered any labs at a greatly reduced cost based on a sliding fee scale. Did you have an MRI before they did the spinal? Celiacs with neuro impact will have white spots on an MRI that resemble the lesions found with MS. Many neuro doctors don't know this. I went through what you did and they did a spinal on me also based on the MRI results. If my doctor had know what the UBOs (unidentified bright objects) were I would have been diagnosed a couple years sooner than I was. Make sure if you supplement that you ask your doctor which ones you need to stop taking and for how long before they do a blood test to check levels. Sublingual B12 is a good idea when we have nervous system issues, but needs to be stopped for at least a week for an accurate blood level on testing. I hope you get some answers and feel better soon.

Thanks for that. Will get her tested for deficiencies. I did take her to a naturopath and get her on a bunch of vitamins, but she never was tested via bloods, so will get on to that, thanks

Hi Could a mod please move this post: and my reply below to a new thread when they get a chance? Thanks! Matt
