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.

Yes you are correct. Interestingly my genes in the US are thought to be more associated with RA. Which is something they thought I had prediagnosis. In the Middle and far East they are more likely to be associated with celiac and they are rare genes in Caucasians which I am according to my parent...

It seems like you really need a concrete or near concrete answer so I would say maybe you ought to get the gene testing. Then you can decide on the gluten challenge. Thanks! I am convinced our dogs are there waiting for us. Meanwhile they are playing, running, laughing, barking & chas...

I can't help thinking that all of this would be so much easier if the doctor I went to 10 years ago would have done testing for celiac, rather than tell me I probably should avoid gluten. He was looking to sell allergy shots and hormone treatment, he had nothing to gain from me being diagnosed ce...

Most (90%-95%) patients with celiac disease have 1 or 2 copies of HLA-DQ2 haplotype (see below), while the remainder have HLA-DQ8 haplotype. Rare exceptions to these associations have been occasionally seen. In 1 study of celiac disease, only 0.7% of patients with celiac disease lacked the HLA al...

This is not quite as cut & dried as it sounds. Although rare, there are diagnosed celiacs who do not have either of those genes. Ravenwoodglass, who posted above, is one of those people. I think she has double DQ9 genes? Am I right Raven? My point is, that getting the gene testing is not an...
