Flourless fat free rhubarb and almond slice, gluten free.

β€’19 Replies

Hi everyone,

I love stewed fruit like rhubarb and I made this by stewing it with some chia seeds and a little soft brown sugar, the chia seeds are as well being healthy they expand 10x so absorb a lot of the juice making the fruit thicker. I then added some ground almonds and flaked almonds with some date syrup and mixed it all up then put a thin layer of ground almonds on top with flaked almonds and I drizzled a little date syrup over the top so it caramelises when cooking.

As I was having a roast this went in the oven with that and is lovely with a dollop of cream or something...

This is gluten free and plant based so ticks lots of boxes. 😊

Thank you Veeee. 😊

Ooh Jerry. You’ve excelled. That looks fabulous. I would like that with some vegan cream drizzled over. It’s such a good idea of yours to mix the chia seeds into the fruit πŸ‘πŸ™‚πŸŒ±

Hey thanks Ali, I've some vegan single cream in the fridge in anticipation...chia seeds are great with cooked fruits. 😊

This looks really fantastic, Hidden!:-) I haven't had rhubarb in a while (except in a yogurt recently).

Yes, you're right! My yogurt was a Greek yogurt and then the rhubarb was added in to be mixed up.:-)

That looks very professional Jerry, what a fantastic cook you are - maybe you could teach the supermakets how to make delicous gluten free food 😊 Did the swedish glace come out?

Thank you Debs, now that's a good idea...😊

Hi Jerry,

Zest's curry followed by your rhubarb and almond slice would go down well :).

I eat out at a vegan bakery and sometimes they sell bread pudding slices.

Bread pudding obviously has eggs in it but a vegan bread pudding obviously doesn't.

Chia seeds make a great egg replacement.

Soak chia seeds in water or any other liquid and the seeds become stodgy and gooey, like egg.

I bought one of these bread pudding slices for my mum once and when she tried it she said "And there is chia seeds in this instead of egg?". I said "Yes" and she said "You wouldn't know the difference".

Thanks Matt and good advice about chia seeds, it was very nice of you buying your mum some bread pudding, so good for you. πŸ‘

Goodness. How delicious that looks! Another way to have rhubarb is to stew it then cover with a sugar free jelly. Takes off the tartness without added sugar. Feels a nice healthy treat- unless I get tempted by a decadent topping!

I was interested to learn how chia seeds swell up in liquid. I shall certainly try that when I next do some baking. Thanks for the tip.

Thank you and sorry about the delay they absorb 10x their volume of water so are a great thickener. 😊
