Crumble makes things better. Especially when it's on top of rhubarb and cherries. You might try some crumble after you've read a race waiver that reads:
The risk of injury and/or death from the activities involved in the Spartan Race and the Event is significant including, but not limited to the following: (i) drowning and cold water; (ii) near-drowning and cold water; (iii) sprains; (iv) strains; (v) fractures; (vi) heat and cold injuries; (vii) over-use syndrome; (viii) injuries involving vehicles and caused by electrocution; (ix) animal bites and/or stings; (x) contact with poisonous plants; (xi) accidents involving, but not limited to, paddling, climbing, biking, hiking, skiing, snow shoeing, travel by boat, truck, car, encountering electrocution , or other convenience;(xii) heart attack and (xiii) the potential for permanent paralysis and/or death. While particular rules, equipment, and personal discipline may reduce this risk, the risk of death or serious injury does exist;
I'm thinking poison ivy? Snake bites? Heart attack caused by snake bites? All while being chomped by mosquitos?
I suspect that we'll make it out in one piece or at least most of us will. Our team motto after all is every woman for herself.
Rhubarb Berry Cherry Crumble
2 C diced rhubarb
4 C PC Organics Power Fruit Blend (or a mix of frozen cherries, blackberries and blueberries)
*1-2 T honey, maple syrup, or agave (optional)
3/4 C old fashioned oats
1/4 C ground almonds
2 T organic sugar
1 T ground flax
2 T coconut oil
1 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp allspice
Preheat oven to 350 F
In a 9 x 13 ceramic dish combine rhubarb, power fruit blend and sweetener if using. In a small bowl combine oats, ground almonds, ground flax, cinnamon and allspice. Using your hands or a pastry blender add coconut oil until crumbly (it's perfectly okay to taste test the crumble mixture). Top fruit mixture with crumble. Bake for 25-35 minutes. Try not to eat the entire pan by yourself (or at least not all in one morning).
* I didn't add sweetener mostly because I forgot. I thought the recipe was delicious but someone who is used to a more traditional crumble (like my granny) might appreciate a little maple syrup or honey.
