This recipe is without doubt one of my absolute favorites and as I haven’t shared one in a while I thought I’d let you know about this one.
First of all, it’s rhubarb time right now and I absolutely love rhubarb, I’m not someone who likes very sweet sweet stuff but rhubarb has this nice sourness to it that makes it so very delishious. Ginger is also one of my favorites, its sweet spiciness is addicting ♥ So as you can figure, rhubarb + ginger = ABSOLUTE WIN for me ;)
Here we go, ginger rhubarb bars with rhubarb compote.
Preheat oven to 180°C and line a 20x20 cm pan with parchment paper or something similar.
Then mix oats, flour, sugar and salt in a big bowl together and add the coconut butter without melting it first, cut it in with a knife. You can of course also just use normal (not salted) butter, but, as those who’ve read my past recipes, I always cook with coconut butter. (This time though I didn’t have enough so I used a little honey and olive oil to get the right consitence of the mass.)
Take about half of the mass and press it into the bottom of the pan to make the crust. Put into the preheated oven for about 40 min.
In the meantime mix the rhubarb, flour, sugar, ground ginger and fresh, cut coriander leaves. When the crust has finished spread the rhubarb mixture on top evenly, then add the rest of the oat mixture on top. If you have crystallized ginger, also add it finely chopped. Bake again for about 45 - 50 min until the top gets nice and brownish.
Afterwards let the pan cool off then immediately eat or cut into squares and store in a airtight container at a cool spot :)
For the compote:
I used about 200 g rhubarb, added a little orange juice, red wine, about 30 g sugar, a little honey, cocoa powder, cinnamon and water and cooked it for about 30 min. For this you can leave the rhubarb unpeeled (usually you peel it) because it gets soft after cooking it for such a long time anyways though make sure to wash it properly before using it.
Oh and I also added some blackberries to the compote afterwards, tastes good and makes the color prettier :)
So, hope you like this recipe if you try it!!! :) (TRY IT!)
