Rhubarb Crumble with Vanilla Whipped Cream
It's rhubarb season here in Sweden and I just couldn't resist trying to make some rhubarb crumble (rabarberpaj).  A great thing about rhubarb is that it's naturally low in carbs, making it a great base for a low carb dessert.  I was inspired by the recipe found at Swedish Diet's Blog but changed a few ingredients and change the measurements to grams.  This pie has lots of nuts in it.  I used chopped almonds and hazelnuts to give it a crunchy feeling and a contrast of texture.  Admittedly, I found myself chewing alot because of the nuts.  That's not necessarily a bad thing, chewing lots makes you feel full faster, so take such a big portion in the beginning.  Because there's not sugar or flour, you don't get the same sort of crunchy feeling from the topping.  But hey, you won't miss that when you put the whipped cream on it.  My husband really liked this so hopefully if you do try it out, it'll be a summer dessert you can enjoy aswell!

Rhubarb Crumble
3 rhubarb stalks, cut into medium sized cubes (425-450g)
60g chopped almonds (not too small that it's a flour, but not too big either!)
50g chopped hazelnuts (again, like the almonds, not too small)
100 ml shredded coconut
150 ml almond flour
100 ml coconut flour
250g melted butter
4 tbsp stevia "sugar" (the white stuff, not the green stuff)
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp vanilla powder
1 tsp baking powder

1) Melt the butter with 2 tbsp of Stevia Sugar.
2) Preheat the oven to 200 degrees C (390 F) and place the rhubarb pieces into a buttered ovenproof dish.
3) Except for the cinnamon and the remaining 2 tbsp of stevia sugar, mix together the dry ingredients in a medium sized bowl.
4) Sprinkle the cinnamon and stevia sugar on top of the rhubarb.
5) Mix the melted butter with the dry ingredients.
6) Spread the mixture on top of the rhubarb and bake in the oven for 20 minutes.
7) Enjoy with some whipped cream sweetened with stevia and

Thank you for taking the time and energy to share your story. I found your blog while looking for recipes, and look forward to reading about your progress.
I've been on this diet for only 10 days. I'm quite bored with the standard fare. NEVER thought I'd ever be over bacon! And I'm shocked to add that I've lost a lb given the enormous volume of food/calories I've been eating.

Happily, I'm not craving sugar, yet. I worried bigtime about that. Now I just need to find more varied meal options than eggs, cheese, bacon.

Thanks again. Happy and HEALTHY New year to us all!
