  • 2 tablespoons granulated keto sugar substitute with 1:1 ratio such as Stevia in the Raw
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/8 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1/2 cup butter cut into chunks
  • 3/4 cup sliced almonds (quantity divided)


For the fruit layer:

  1. Preheat oven to 375º Fahrenheit.
  2. Add the sweetener, xanthan gum, and sea salt to an 8″ X 8″ baking dish. Whisk to mix well.
  3. Add and stir in the strawberries, rhubarb, and lemon juice.
  4. Bake mixture in the preheated oven for about 30 minutes, or until the strawberries and rhubarb are tender.

Keto Rhubarb and Strawberry Crisp for Great Health

One of the great blessings of spring is new, fresh, and delicious flavors. After a season of warm comfort foods, it can feel great to add in more seasonal fruits and vegetables.

Our Keto Rhubarb and Strawberry Crisp does this with both strawberries and rhubarb. Here’s how.

Strawberry (and Other Berry) Nutrition

Strawberries are a wonderfully nourishing low-carb fruit. In fact, they encourage:

  • High levels of antioxidants. The antioxidants in berries fight oxidative stress in the body, which can reduce oxidized cholesterol and damage from free radicals.
  • Reduced blood pressure. A recent research review found that 100 grams of blueberries consumed daily, for 14 days, was associated with a significant reduction in systolic blood pressure (1).
  • Fiber. Like many fruits and vegetables, berries offer soluble and insoluble fiber, which is great for cholesterol, digestion, and more.
  • Improved cholesterol readings. In a recent study, researchers found daily berry consumption reduced LDL cholesterol, blood pressure, and fasting glucose (2).

Rhubarb Nutrition

Next, rhubarb is a vegetable (yes, a vegetable) with a lot of nutrition to offer. It provides:

Vitamin K for Bone Health. Vitamin K is an important nutrient for both blood and bone health. In fact, Vitamin K2 has been linked to stronger bones, improved fracture healing and reduced fracture incidence in post-menopausal women (3).

Vitamin A Antioxidant Power. Along with vitamin K, rhubarb delivers a healthy dose of vitamin A. Vitamin A is a powerful antioxidant that fights oxidative stress and the degradation of cells and tissues in the body.*

Fiber and Antioxidants for Optimal Cholesterol. Rhubarb provides both fiber and powerful antioxidants for optimal cholesterol levels. First, fiber absorbs some cholesterol from bile and eliminates it. Meanwhile strong antioxidants like resveratrol reduce cholesterol oxidation and plaque formation (4).

Sennocides and Fiber for Great Digestion. Rhubarb promotes balanced and healthy digestion with fiber, sennosides, and tannins. Fiber keeps the gut strong and healthy. Sennosides act as natural, gentle laxatives, while tannins provide anti-diarrheal effects (5).

Anti-Inflammatories for Full Body Health. Rhubarb’s antioxidants also promote reduced inflammation in the body. Inflammation is at the core of most modern chronic health concerns. Eating a diet high in anti-inflammatory nutrients promotes prevention and whole-body health.*
