  • 2 pounds fresh rhubarb stalks, cut into 1-inch pieces (about 6 cups), or thawed frozen sliced rhubarb

  • cup pure maple syrup

  • 1 tablespoon grated orange zest

  • 2 tablespoons orange juice

  • 1 tablespoon grated fresh ginger

  • ¼ cup chopped crystallized ginger, divided

  • 1 teaspoon salt, divided

  • ¾ cup almond flour

  • ½ cup finely chopped pistachios

  • ¼ cup packed light brown sugar

  • 6 tablespoons cold unsalted butter, cut into 1/2-inch pieces


  1. Preheat oven to 375°F. Lightly coat a 7-by-11-inch baking dish with cooking spray.

  2. Combine rhubarb, maple syrup, orange zest, orange juice, fresh ginger, 2 tablespoons crystallized ginger and 1/2 teaspoon salt in a large bowl. Spread evenly in the prepared baking dish.

  3. Combine almond flour, pistachios, brown sugar and the remaining 2 tablespoons crystallized ginger and 1/2 teaspoon salt in a medium bowl. Add butter; using your fingers, rub the butter into the flour mixture until the mixture begins to clump together. Sprinkle the mixture evenly over the rhubarb mixture.

  4. Bake until the filling is bubbling and thickened and the topping is golden, 45 to 50 minutes, covering with foil during the final 10 minutes of bake time if needed to prevent overbrowning. Let stand at room temperature for at least 15 minutes before serving.

Nutrition information is calculated by a registered dietitian using an ingredient database but should be considered an estimate.

* Daily Values (DVs) are the recommended amounts of nutrients to consume each day. Percent Daily Value (%DV) found on nutrition labels tells you how much a serving of a particular food or recipe contributes to each of those total recommended amounts. Per the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), the daily value is based on a standard 2,000 calorie diet. Depending on your calorie needs or if you have a health condition, you may need more or less of particular nutrients. (For example, it’s recommended that people following a heart-healthy diet eat less sodium on a daily basis compared to those following a standard diet.)
