Low Cal Sweet!

Something that is low calorie and speaks to my sweet tooth is music to my ears. This Rhubarb-Dried Cherry Crumble would love to be paired with some vanilla frozen yogurt but poor me—I don’t have any! I guess that’s the way the crumble crumbles?? Boooooo

Rhubarb-Dried Cherry Crumble
Pam spray
4 cups of rhubarb, washed trimmed and cut into 1-inch slices
½ cup of no sugar strawberry preserves
½ cup dried cherries
2 T flaxseed, freshly ground in coffee mill
1 large orange, juiced (1/4 cup) and 1 T of its zest
1 t cinnamon
2 cups granola type cereal (I used Go Lean Honey Almond Flax) but many others would suffice
Maple syrup if desired

Spray 13 X 8 X 2 pan—combine all ingredients in pan. Don’t be concerned if mixture seems dry. Place the pan in cold oven, set the oven to 375 and bake uncovered 15 minutes. Stir and then continue baking until rhubarb is tender yet firm, 10 to 15 more minutes. Add maple syrup only if you need more sweetness. I like tart desserts so this works for me. A small scoop of frozen yogurt would be divine with it and also sweeten it up.
