Loved this recipe! Especially loved the topping but I did make a few changes for health reasons. I didn't use the honey (as once you heat honey it's no better for health) so in the recipe I subbed it with 2T. brown sugar (still sugar but a few more nutrients) and a teaspoon of pure stevia extract to sweeten and some cinnamon (1 t.) to help metabolize the sugar I did use and I, too, added cornstarch but I added 3 T. because I can my applesauce in full cup measures and I used 3/4 cup for the topping so I tossed in the last 1/4 with the rhubarb mix. The topping is where I really struck gold. I made twice the recipe so I used 3 cups of rolled oats, 3/4 cup packed brown sugar, 2 t. pure stevia extract, 3/4 cup applesauce and 1 T. cinnamon. I used NO butter at all. It was sticky but when dropped by small pieces onto the strawberry/rhubarb mixture and then sprayed with three coats of natural butter spray and baked, it made a sweet and delightful crumb topping with very low sugar and tons of health. I was thrilled with this topping and will use it for apple and other fruit bakes as well. Thank you so much for this idea!
