Strawberry Rhubarb Muffins {Recipe}


A few weeks ago I was at a dinner with a friend, Trina from O’Boy! Organic and we were talking about rhubarb. All she had to do was mention strawberry rhubarb muffins and the thought has not left my head since. We’ve been getting a ton of rhubarb from our CSA and last week we even got some strawberries, so I thought it would be the perfect time to whip up a recipe for these delicious snacks. Definitely one of my new favorite “healthy” treats, so here’s hoping for more of that rhubarb this week!

These are easy to make and you can even tweak some of the fruit amounts to tailor it for your family.

Strawberry Rhubarb Muffins


Muffins –

2 cups all-purpose flour

3/4 cup granulated sugar

2 tsp baking powder

1/2 tsp baking soda

1/2 tsp salt

1 cup buttermilk

1 tsp vanilla

1 large egg

1/4 cup applesauce

1 cup chopped fresh strawberries

1/2 cup chopped fresh rhubarb

Topping – 

1/2 cup flour

1/2 cup light brown sugar

1/4 cup (1/2 stick) butter, melted



1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

2. Make crumb topping by combining all topping ingredients and stirring with a fork. Set aside.

3. Whisk together buttermilk, egg, vanilla, and applesauce in a large bowl. Set aside.

4. Mix together flour, sugar, baking soda, baking powder, and salt in a medium bowl.

5. Combine wet and dry ingredients and stir until just combined.

6. Fold in strawberries and rhubarb.

7. Put into muffin tin.

8. Top with a light layer of crumb topping.

9. Bake at 350 degrees for 20 minutes or until lightly browned on the top.

  7. We made these over the weekend and they were absolutely wonderful!
    We didn’t have buttermilk or applesauce on hand, so used yogurt (Banilla flavor – banana/vanilla) and a mushed up banana instead. Also used whole wheat flour.
