Rhubarb Muffins

Share it Please
Another muffin recipe! Yay! ;D As you can probably tell, we like our muffins around here.

Tart, bites of fresh rhubarb surrounded by moist "topping". Sort of like rhubarb crisp for breakfast! Except in muffin form. But equally delicious! I mean, who wouldn't want rhubarb crisp for breakfast? ;)

My mother actually came up with this recipe. She based it off the recipe for cinnamon apple muffins in Elana Amsterdam's cook book, The Gluten Free Almond Flour Cookbook. The recipe worked perfectly! The first time we made them, my mom added an extra quarter cup of sugar, but, it turns out, that made the muffins too sweet. Part of what makes rhubarb good is its unique tartness. Take that away and it just isn't the same.

Oh, guess what? My grandma gave us more rhubarb! But my aunt was in town, so she cooked it down into a sauce and froze it. I can't wait to try some out on ice cream or chia seed pudding. Yum! :) It's a good thing she took charge and did something with it, because I was feeling a little overwhelmed by all of our rhubarb. :/

2 c. almond flour
1/4 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. baking soda
1/4 c. arrowroot powder
1 tsp. cinnamon
1/4 tsp. nutmeg
1/4 c. coconut oil, melted
1/2 c. honey
1 egg, beaten
1 T. vanilla extract
1 1/2 c. chopped rhubarb
optional: brown sugar for topping

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Line muffin tin with baking cups or grease well.
2. In a large bowl, combine dry ingredients.
3. Add all of the wet ingredients to the dry and stir well to combine.
4. Fold in rhubarb.
5. Fill each baking cup 3/4 full. Sprinkle brown sugar on top.
6. Bake for 12-15 minutes. When toothpick inserted in the middle comes out clean, they're done.

Inquiry of the Day:

This is in no way related to muffins, but I wanted to know if any of you watched Sherlock (a BBC show). I started the first season a few days ago and finished it tonight. The show is amazing and I highly recommend it. Unfortunately, the third season won't be coming out until early 2014. >:( The good news is we'll be seeing more of Benedict Cumberbatch (Sherlock Holmes) and Martin Freeman (John Watson) in The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug. :D If you have Netflix, you can watch the first two seasons on that.
