Raspberry Rhubarb Bars (also gluten-free version)


I'm giving you two of these recipes for the price of one: the regular version and the gluten-free version

Raspberry Rhubarb Bars Recipe:

4 c. chopt rhubarb

1/3 c. sugar  (The original recipe called for 1 c. of sugar, but I think that's way too sweet)
2 c. flour
½ t. soda
¾ c. butter
1 ½ c. coconut
1 t. vanilla
1 c. chopt walnuts
6 oz. regular Raspberry Jell-O.


Combine rhubarb and Jello, mixing to coat rhubarb thoroughly with Jello. Put in greased 9 x 13 pan. I like to use a glass baking dish for this recipe.






 
Mix sugar, flour, soda. Cut in butter. Stir in coconut, vanilla, and nuts. 



Spread over top of rhubarb. Bake at 350 degrees F.  for 30-45 minutes or until rhubarb is bubbling and top is lightly browned. 

Like this:



Warning: These are addictive (no matter which version you make).

Gluten-free Raspberry Rhubarb Bars Recipe:

4 c. chopt rhubarb
1/3 c. sugar
1 1/2 c. brown rice flour (or white rice flour)
1/2 c. tapioca flour
1/2 t. xanthan gum
1/2 t. baking soda
3/4 c. butter
1 1/2 c. coconut
1 t. vanilla
1 c. chopt walnuts (I'll have to admit that, in my opinion, walnuts make everything taste better!)
2 - 3 oz. pkgs. sugar-free Raspberry Jell-O or 6 oz. regular Raspberry Jell-O (contains sugar)

Combine rhubarb and Jello, to coat rhubarb thoroughly with Jello. Put in greased 9 x 13 pan. I like to use a glass baking dish for this recipe.

Mix sugar, flour, soda. Cut in butter. Stir in coconut, vanilla, and nuts. Spread over top of rhubarb. Bake at 350  for 30-45 minutes or until rhubarb is bubbling and top is lightly browned. 


If you have another rhubarb dessert recipe that you LOVE, feel free to leave it as a comment! :-)  Thanks.

P.S. And guess what!  Picky, picky Joe didn't even realize that the recipe I made was the gluten-free version. :-) He just gobbled it down and said it was good!  Oh, and when I make gluten-free chocolate chip cookies, he's doesn't know that either. (Let's keep it our secret.)

I love rhubarb - usually I just stew it, mix it with some chopped ginger in syrup and wolf it down!

Jane said...

These look so good! Rhubarb screams summer to me. I love the tangy and sweet combination. I can't wait to make these!

Raspberry and Rhubarb! What a fabulous combination! I've got to try that. I've only had it with strawberries but I know that the raspberries would be amazing.
