  1. Preheat the oven to gas 5, 190°C, fan 170°C. Cut the rhubarb into 5cm lengths and spread in a single layer in a shallow roasting tin. Mix together the orange zest, juice and honey and pour over the rhubarb. Cover the tin tightly with foil and set aside.
  2. For the crumble topping, place the flour, sugar and a pinch of salt into a bowl. Add the butter and rub together with your fingertips until the mixture resembles coarse breadcrumbs. Add the chopped almonds and oats and mix to combine. Spread evenly on a tray lined with baking paper.
  3. Bake both the rhubarb and crumble topping in the oven for 12-15 mins until the rhubarb is completely tender but still holding its shape and the crumble is golden.
  4. Grill or toast the crumpets (it might be easier to do this under the grill) and place 2 crumpets onto each plate. Spoon the rhubarb pieces and some of the syrup onto each crumpet, add a generous spoonful of yogurt and sprinkle with the crumble. Finish with a final drizzle of rhubarb syrup.
