This recipe makes the most delicious rhubarb strawberry squares.

Everyone will love these rhubarb bars - even those who do not require a gluten-free diet - THEY won't even suspect these rhubarb treats are gluten-free!;)

You can use fresh or rhubarb from your freezer for these rhubarb squares.

If you are using frozen rhubarb, thaw it the night before, on the counter, in a sieve over a bowl.

Discard the excess liquid.

You may need to thaw slightly more rhubarb than the ingredient list calls for, since the rhubarb tends to "shrink" after it has thawed.



2 cups gluten-free all-purpose flour
1 tsp. baking powder
1/2 cup cold butter
2 medium eggs, lightly beaten
3 tbsp. milk
5 cups chopped fresh or frozen rhubarb
1 pkg. - (3 oz. size) strawberry gelatin (Example: "Jello")


1 cup granulated sugar
1 cup gluten-free all-purpose flour
1/2 cup cold butter



In a large bowl, whisk together the flour and the baking powder.

Using a pastry cutter or a fork, cut in the butter until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs.

Add the eggs and the milk and stir the mixture just until moistened. Do not over-mix.

Press the mixture into a greased 9" x 13" baking dish.

Spread the chopped rhubarb evenly over the base.

Sprinkle the strawberry gelatin evenly over the rhubarb.


Combine the sugar and the gluten-free flour in a small bowl.

Using a pastry cutter or a fork, cut in the butter, until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs.

Sprinkle the topping over the base in the baking dish.

Bake the bars at 350° F for about 35 - 40 minutes, or until lightly browned.

Allow the bars to cool, and then cut into squares.

Makes about 18 delicious rhubarb bars, **gluten-free!

**Be sure to read all ingredient labels for possible gluten content before using.

Is Your Rhubarb "Stringy" when you cut it?

I LOVE my Inexpensive, Easy-to-Use Knife Sharpener -

- I don't know how I did without a knife sharpener for so long!

Here (below) is the one I have had for the past 10 years!
