Gluten Free Rhubarb Square

A few days ago I was in our local organic store when I found the first rhubarb of the year. I wasn’t sure yet how I was going to use it, but I grabbed 3 sticks anyways. Once I got home I asked my husband what he’d like me to prepare with it, and he said a crumble, but I ended up making something else. Haha. This square is quite good, a little tart but feel free to take some liberties with this recipe – add more rhubarb, add some strawberry, or go with a different fruit all together. Give it a try!
