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:
- 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.
- We both love and want to eat as healthy as possible. Preservatives and other junk in snacks and breakfast foods are just plain YUCKY.
- Eating healthy should be delicious in every way possible (ok, three things).
What Kind of Rhubard Should I Use?
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!
