    Delicious recipe that is a keeper! I love the unexpected addition of the “cheesecake” dollops which really make this rhubarb crisp stand out. from other recipes The only changes I made were to increase the sweetener, since I had more rhubarb and fewer strawberries. I also didn’t have pecans, so I subbed with 1/4 c. chopped walnuts & 1/4 c. unsweetened coconut. Served with Keto pint strawberry ice cream.

    • Hey Karalane! I’m so glad you enjoyed this!! Thanks for stopping by to let me know, I appreciate it more than you know!
