Rhubarb Custard Bars

Shared from thelocalbeet.com



Recently I read a post from Plainsimplelivingblog.wordpress.com The author’s post was focused on rhubarb and how many rhubarb recipes are riddled with sugar. It brought me back in time…years ago when the boys were little and Tom took Dylan and his dad to Maine for a special fishing trip. I made rhubarb custard bars to welcome them home. I remember vaguely that the recipe had sugar but wasn’t overly sweet.





It was early spring, in May and the rhubarb patch was thriving and ready to pick. I picked the smaller stalks, as they were deep red and I knew were rich in flavor. I stumbled upon a recipe online and decided to surprise Tom with a yummy dessert.




Here is the recipe on the link Rhubarb Custard Bars


I made so long ago and I believe that within a day or two, they were long gone but not forgotten. What I love about this recipe is the subtle orange juice sweetener. It does have quite a bit sugar but you could experiment with it to find a balance that would work.





Hopefully your growing rhubarb hasn’t gone to seed so that you can try this! If you try baking these, let me know if you enjoyed them or if you cut the sugar and your results.

All My Best,

Heart and Soul ❤

  1. Mary I love this! Rhubarb is one of my favorites, and it brings back so many memories. My grandmother grew rhubarb in her yard, and would make sauce like apple sauce.

    I wonder if this recipe would be good with maple sugar/syrup, or coconut sugar? 💓
    Blessings, Mary! Thanks for a great post. Debbie


  2. What a sweet story Mary– and your rhubarb is impressive!! Our garden just has green tomatoes and a beginning of Siss chard– so it’s fun to see yours producing– hope ahead!! xox


    1. Rhonda, the rhubarb picture is borrowed from another site. Most of my pictures are mine but sometimes I borrow from others and list the site for credit. I’ll post my garden pictures as everything grows. Blessings to you.💗
