This cobbler contains so many fresh ingredients however the rhubarb is the main star of the dish. The tangy, tart sweetness from the rhubarb is amazing and if you have never tried it, you are missing out! Rhubarb pairs fantastically with apples and all kinds of berries.

The strawberry, apple and rhubarb coconut filling is not overly sweet, has a fresh taste and just a hint of tartness. The coconut crumb topping is light and gives a nice balance to the fruit.

Easy to make, delicious, healthy, what more could you ask for!

3.) Meanwhile, make the crumb topping by chopping up the butter and rubbing it into the flour with your finger tips. Rub together till the butter forms a bit larger than pea sized pieces. Add the sugar, coconut and walnuts, stir together and set aside.
