Buttery, melt-in-your-mouth crumble bars are filled with sweet and tart rhubarb for a perfect lunchbox filler or afternoon snack.


200 grams / 1 1/4 cups plain flour
45 grams / 1/2 cup rolled oats
50 grams / 1/2 cup confectioner’s/icing sugar
135 grams / 4.76 ounces butter, chilled and cubed
600 grams / 1.3 pounds rhubarb, sliced into bite size pieces
100 grams / 1/2 cup superfine/caster sugar


  1. Preheat the oven to 180ºC/350F. and line a square baking tin with greaseproof paper.
  2. Place the sliced rhubarb and sugar into a bowl and stir to combine.
  3. Place the flour, rolled oats and confectioner’s sugar in a bowl and stir to combine. Make a well in the center and toss in the butter.
  4. Cut the butter into the flour, until the mixture resembles breadcrumbs.
  5. Pour two thirds of the crumb mixture into your tin and press to flatten down evenly.
  6. Bake for approximately 10 minutes or until lightly golden on top. Remove and set aside to cool.
  7. Toss the rhubarb onto the base and even out, ensuring it is completely covered.
  8. Press the remaining crumb mixture together to form large crumbs and sprinkle over the rhubarb.
  9. Bake for approximately 35 minutes or until lightly golden on top.
  10. Remove and allow to cool completely.
  11. Remove from the tin and slice evenly.
  12. Serve.
