Strawberry Rhubarb Muffins

When strawberries and rhubarb arrived in my CSA (community supported agriculture) share this week, my mind went wild with possibilities. These scrumptious muffins are a spin-off of my popular Apple Cinnamon Muffins and are a true tribute to summer. They are made with almond flour as a base which is loaded with protein, healthy fats, vitamins, and minerals. They are good anytime of day (including breakfast) and are perfect for those on a gluten free diet. Give them a try– you won’t be sorry!

1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon sea salt

3 tablespoons grapeseed oil
1 tablespoon vanilla extract
1 egg
1/2 cup rhubarb, finely diced

Note: If you’re wondering where to get high quality finely ground blanched almond flour, go to Nuts.com! I’m a huge fan as their products are fresh, allergy-friendly, and the shipping is really fast.
