Who doesn’t love a fruit crisp? Answer: No one. Especially one with sweet strawberries, tart rhubarb, sprinkled with an incredible oatmeal crisp topping AND candied almonds! This summery dessert is ridiculously delicious. And did I mention, that it’s super easy to whip up? Because it is!

This time I made individual portions but you could totally make this in one baking dish and then scoop into bowls. Serve with vanilla ice cream or homemade whipped cream, and I like to top with candied almonds for additional sweetness and crunch.
