Strawberry Rhubarb Muffins (GF)

I love making Gluten Free Strawberry Rhubarb Muffins for breakfast because they are really easy to make and leave the house smelling fantastic! The strawberries in these muffins are little bursts of juicy sweetness that is complemented really well by the sour rhubarb. I also made these Strawberry Rhubarb Muffins gluten free, packed with fiber and full of protein by using almond flour and protein powder in the batter.

It’s strawberry season in Ontario! If you want to learn about the health benefits of strawberries check out my Strawberry Rhubarb Crisp Recipe.

Health Benefits of Rhubarb

I love the tart sourness of rhubarb. Stay away from the leaves which are toxic due to high levels of oxalic acid and enjoy the stems which are bursting with health benefits:

  • Eases bloating and constipation due to high dietary fiber content
  • Packed with lots of calcium which contributes to strong bones and teeth
  • Supports blood clotting and brain health due to Vitamin K content
  • Contains immune boosting vitamin C which is really important during allergy season
  • Full of antioxidants from the beautiful red colour of the stem
