It's also a great go-to for dinner parties during summer because it’s a such an easy make-ahead treat that takes less than 20 minutes to prepare. You can even make it a day or two before, store in the fridge, take it out a few hours before the guests arrive, and bake right before serving dinner. It’s always a crowd pleaser, especially when served warm with a scoop of dairy-free vanilla ice cream. This strawberry rhubarb crumble is naturally dairy-free and vegan and you can make it gluten-free by using certified gluten-free oats. Feel free to taste test as you’re preparing the filling and add more maple syrup if you like yours sweeter.
