Rhubarb-Banana Crumble

Happy Monday lovelies!

So this morning as I reached into the refrigerator for some cream to add to my much needed coffee, I couldn’t help but be enamored by the presence of a gorgeous bundle of bright pink rhubarb I picked up at the farmers market over the weekend. It looked so beautiful all bundled in it’s bow-tied string, that I honestly wanted to cradle it in my arms an cherish it for always…. is that strange? Don’t answer that.

Seriously though, can rhubarb season just please never end???? I don’t know about you but I just love that gorgeous pink stuff. It’s one of my all-time favourite ingredients to bake with because it is so versatile and pretty much tastes amazing with anything and everything. Every year I try it out with different fruit combinations and I always find myself falling in love with the new flavour combo’s.

Such was the case when I stumbled upon a recipe in one of my favourite Canadian Living cookbooks for Rhubarb-Banana Crumble. Say whatttt????? Now I must be straight up crazy, because until I saw that Canadian Living recipe, I had never even thought to pair together rhubarb and banana; But as soon as I thought about it, I was like uhmmm duh!!  So after putting my own spin on the recipe and subsequently tasting {a lottt} the result… I have to be honest with you guys and say this is hands down my favourite rhubarb dessert of the season.

Are we on the same page about peanut butter here? For me peanut butter has never needed any kind of justification. But I guess that’s just because I am a peanut butter addict. Seriously, if a group called peanut butter addicts anonymous existed, I would be a member.
