Strawberry Rhubarb Muffins (gluten free, dairy free)

Strawberry Rhubarb Muffins (1 of 1)

I’m pretty sure if I entered these into a baking contest they would win. I’m not much of a baker—savory’s more my jam. And with all the sugar my kids are bombarded with on a daily basis, I’m usually looking for ways to slash anything sweet (yay, Mom).

These muffins have just the right hint of sweetness from maple syrup and a dash of brown sugar. So if you’re looking for “might as well call it cake” muffins, look on. I used a combo of 4 flours made from whole grains and nuts: oat, almond, coconut, and sorghum. All happen to be gluten free (bonus!).

Each muffin is just over 200 calories and comes with 5 grams of protein and a decent 5 grams of fiber thanks to all those whole grains, nuts and fresh fruit.

They’re honestly some of the best muffins I’ve ever tasted. We’ve nearly gobbled up all 14 in a matter of 2 days. (Thank you, Gluten Free Goddess for the original inspiration!)


(Yield: 14 muffins)


  • Gluten-Free Blend:
  • 1 cup oat flour
  • ½ cup almond flour
  • ½ cup coconut flour
  • ½ cup sorghum flour
  • 1 tsp tapioca starch
  • 2 tbsp brown sugar
  • 2 tsp baking soda
  • ½ tsp sea salt
  • ¼ tsp nutmeg
  • 2 large eggs
  • ¼ cup olive oil
  • ½ cup maple syrup
  • 1 tbsp vanilla extract
  • 1 to 1 ½ cups almond milk (vanilla unsweetened)
  • 1 ½ cups strawberries, cut into 8ths
  • ¾ cups rhubarb, minced


Preheat oven to 350°F. Mix all dry ingredients. Add eggs, olive oil, maple syrup and vanilla. Stir with a whisk until smooth. Slowly add almond milk until batter is thick and fluffy. Stir in strawberries and rhubarb and spoon into muffin cups. Don’t smooth out the lumps!—they’ll make a delicious crust. Bake 35-40 mins until inserted toothpick comes clean. Optional: Broil for 2-3 mins for toasted tops. Allow to cool 5 mins on a wire rack before devouring.
