Cody and I just got back from a series of trips to see our families over the past couple of weeks. With all of the traveling we’ve been doing, I was super grateful to have lots of on-the-go snacks and breakfasts that are wholesome and more than just a protein bar. I mean I love protein bars and all, but there’s only so much protein-bar-living a girl can take! These Gluten-Free Healthy Rhubarb Muffins are here to save the day!
These Gluten-Free Healthy Rhubarb Muffins are a great on-the-go snack or breakfast!
Here are two things that I think we can generally agree on: 1.) You, like me, don’t have time to make some crazy complicated breakfast or snack and it basically needs to be ready in 5 minutes or less in order to fit it into your busy lifestyle. 2.) We both love and want to eat as healthy as possible. Preservatives and other junk in snacks and breakfast foods are just plain YUCKY. 3.) Eating healthy should be delicious in every way possible.
I see your go-to, no-time, potentially preservative filled snack or breakfast and I raise you these Gluten-Free Healthy Rhubarb Muffins, friend! Ok, so I’m sure your go-to snack or breakfast is not ACTUALLY preservative filled. Sorrrrrry. I just really wanted to say something attention grabbing right there. But if you ARE in fact looking for a new, healthy, sweet, and wholesome snack for the spring/summer, these Gluten-Free Healthy Rhubarb Muffins are DELISH! In addition to that, they can be made in advance and last you the entire week.
And anyway, it IS rhubarb season, after all. It deserves it’s own muffin! And we deserve muffins. It’s a win-win. Muffins all around!
Watch how to make these Gluten-Free Healthy Rhubarb Muffins!
Oh, and did I mention they’re gluten-free??? So many wins!
For this recipe, I used fresh rhubarb. However, I think that frozen or dried rhubarb would work great, too! This recipe is a variation of the Blueberry Bread recipe, so be sure to check that recipe out and the Pumpkin Muffins recipe for more of these delicious muffin and bread variations! Let’s make these beauties, shall we?
