An RN for 14 years, I have been following a strict gluten-free diet for six years of improving health! Now I help others as a Celiac Disease/Gluten Intolerance Educator. I work one on one with people on meal planning, shopping, cooking and dining out gluten-free. I will also work with children who have behavioral issues related to gluten or other food sensitivities. My book "Gluten-Free PORTLAND" is a comprehensive resource guide to the gluten-free diet and is available on my website www.glutenfreechoice.com. My other websites are: www.WellBladder.com and www.neighborhoodnurse.net.
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:
Cool briefly to allow it to thicken, but remember that fruit crisps are best when served slightly warm.
