Muffins are one of my favorite go-to snacks. I try to make two batches of muffins every week so my kids can have a healthier alternative to packaged snacks when they come home from school. And when I get hit with mid-morning hunger, I like to grab a muffin and some fruit to get me through until lunchtime.

Strawberry and rhubarb make one of the classic flavor combinations of spring. I love the combination of tart and sweet flavors.

To give these strawberry rhubarb muffins an extra special touch, I make a simple crumble topping using coconut sugar. It has a sweet, earthy flavor that goes so well with the strawberries and rhubarb. Coconut sugar is less expensive than honey and pure maple syrup. It makes the perfect sweetener for these muffins!

If you have extra rhubarb, try this cherry rhubarb cobbler for a delicious spring dessert.

  1. 5 stars
    Made ’em without the topping and I always add less sugar than a recipe says. Didn’t have coconut sugar so I used organic brown sugar. Used rhubarb and strawberries that were locally grown without chemicals through regenerative farming, and the rest all organic ingredients. These muffins make a yummy, healthy breakfast or snack, thank you for the recipe!
