For the applesauce

1 lb rhubarb stalks cut into ½-inch pieces
½ lb apples
½ cup sugar

For the oats

½ cup rolled oats
½ teaspoon cinnamon
2 Tablespoons brown sugar
2 Tablespoons olive oil



1.       In a saucepan, combine rhubarb pieces with sugar over low heat. Stir frequently as it starts to cook, making sure the sugar doesn’t burn.

2.       Add apples as rhubarb begins to cook down.

3.       Meanwhile, heat a skillet over medium-high heat. Add olive oil, and once shimmering, add oats, brown sugar, and cinnamon. Cook for 5 minutes until well combined and oats become crispy.

When apples have almost cooked down, remove from heat. Taste for sweetness. Let cool and serve with toasted oats sprinkled on top.
