Low-Carb Strawberry Rhubarb Muffins

Rhubarb is one of those veggies that I rarely cook with, not because I don’t like it, I just never think to try it.  To be honest, I think the only time I’ve had rhubarb is in my mom’s strawberry rhubarb pie.  So when my boss gave me a big bag of it I was a little hesitant because I wasn’t sure if I would use it all!

The first thing I made with it was strawberry rhubarb chia seed jam.  It’s so good and takes no time to whip up.  It’s great on toast, in yogurt or even on ice cream – yumm!

Next up was this recipe. I knew I wanted to make a low-carb muffin and these turned out delicious.  When baking with low-carb flours, I find it hard to get an end product that is moist and not dry or crumbly.  These muffins definitely deliver!   If you don’t have rhubarb on hand, feel free to substitute with your favourite fruit.

These are the perfect low-carb, low-sugar snack to go!strawberry_rhubarb_muffins_low-carb_www-thehappyhealthfreak-com

      Can you use unsweetened almond milk instead of coconut milk?

  • Sophie October 2, 2016 at 6:34 am

    Woow these look delicious! I like the tiny pieces of rhubarb and strawberry, looks yum!

  • Judy June 10, 2017 at 1:36 pm

    These look totally yummy!! Can you sub regular flour and sugar? Any differences in amounts to use? Thanks so much!!

    • happyhealthfreak June 10, 2017 at 1:48 pm

      Thanks Judy! This recipe uses low-carb flours so I’m not sure what the conversion would be for regular flour. You can sub regular sugar for xylitol though πŸ˜‰

    What are the conventions for if you used almond flour or gluten free flour vs a coconut almond flour mix?

    • happyhealthfreak June 30, 2017 at 10:16 am

      Coconut flour is usually drier so you may need less. Not exactly sure of the coversion though.

  • Sarah Kinney May 29, 2018 at 7:59 pm

    Can you substitute for coconut sugar? Bc I cant Find that other one in stores.

  • Kat March 3, 2019 at 4:12 pm

    Hi there ! I can’t wait to try this can I sub xylitol for monk fruit ?

  • Mary May 22, 2019 at 10:16 am

    This is honestly one of the best keto muffins that I have made. I did not have coconut milk so I used half cream cheese and half cream and they turned out perfect and so moist. Don’t overbake because they really are moist.

    • happyhealthfreak May 23, 2019 at 9:49 pm

      That’s awesome Mary! Great idea with the substitutions. Glad you enjoyed them πŸ˜‰

    Can you use unsweetened almond milk instead of coconut milk?

    • happyhealthfreak February 17, 2020 at 4:30 am

      You can try it! You might need to add a bit more fat like butter or coconut oil.

  • Suzanne March 12, 2020 at 12:45 pm

    These looks so good! Do you use this muffin batter for any other recipes?

    • happyhealthfreak March 30, 2020 at 2:59 pm

      Thanks Suzanne! I have not used it for other recipes, but it could easily be done in a 9×9 pan instead. You’d just have to cook it a bit longer πŸ˜‰

  • Vanessa March 12, 2020 at 12:45 pm

    Thanks for sharing! Do they keep long?

    • happyhealthfreak March 30, 2020 at 2:57 pm

      Probably 3-5 days in the fridge, they freeze well too!
