As a child, rhubarb was not a vegetable I found appetizing.
I doubt I would have looked fondly upon these Gluten Free Rhubarb Muffins.
I remember my sweet grandmother creating various recipes with her garden rhubarb, and despite the fact she was a fantastic cook and I admired her in every way, her rhubarb recipes were not among my favorites.
However, I will gladly admit, I gobbled up everything else she made!
I was told this past year, that my grandfather made rhubarb wine. Ha! Apparently, my grandparents had a healthy crop of rhubarb each year and found ingenious ways to use it.
I like to think that I am following in their footsteps by utilizing every last bit of our own garden produce each season.
Now, fast forward 20 years from those days spent in my grandmother’s kitchen to sitting in my best friend’s kitchen. I remember the day well that my friend served me a delicious rhubarb recipe.
I was truly surprised I liked it and asked her repeatedly if she was sure it was actually rhubarb.
I quickly realized I may need to reevaluate my aversion to this simple whole food.Rhubarb never tasted so good! Try these #glutenfree #muffins with a secret ingredient! Click To Tweet
That is how these amazing delicious Gluten Free Sour Cream Rhubarb Muffins were born!
They are so easy to make and every batch has turned out fantastic. Plus, look at how gorgeous they are?!
The crumb on these muffins is light and soft. The tartness of the rhubarb is offset by the subtle sweetness of just the right amount of sugar.
Do you want to know the secret ingredient? Sour cream!
This oh-so-slight tanginess takes them over the top.
If you are not gluten free don’t fret, you can still bake them! Try HappiHomemade’s gluten-free flour blend, a 1-1 GF Baking Blend, or whole wheat pastry flour in these muffins. You can also try these flours in other gluten free recipes because they usually turn out perfectly!
I can’t wait for you all to try this scrumptious breakfast and brunch recipe.
So the next time your neighbor offers you rhubarb, TAKE IT!
You will be happily surprised with how delicious it can taste in these heavenly muffins.
I feel so fortunate that Ruth from Living Well Spending Less published these on her website! It is always an honor to be have my recipes featured by bloggers that I admire.
I make these with Egg Replacer, dairy free sour cream by Tofutti and coconut sugar instead of granulated sugar. They’re the best gluten free, dairy free rhubarb muffin I’ve been able to find.
Yay for dairy free, gluten free and refined sugar free muffins! Thanks for sharing how you made this recipe your own, Carole. Blessings!
My mother-in-law used to make an amazing rhubarb pie. I might have to find some rhubarb to make these!
Mmmmm, rhubarb pie is delicious too and homemade is even better! Yes, I hope you will give these a try, Roseann. 🙂 Blessings to you!
These look great! I’ve never made anything with rhubarb, but I need to give it a shot!! Thanks for sharing at You Link It, We Make It. Hope to see you back tomorrow!
April, you have to try these! Your first experience with rhubarb will be a good one…unlike mine! Ha!
Yum! We love rhubarb and have so much of it growing! Thank you for linking up to last week’s Tasty Tuesday linky. I have pinned your recipe to the Tasty Tuesday Pinterest board. I hope that you’ll join us again this week.
Rhubarb is definitely not my favorite. We had a huge crop of rhubarb at our old homestead. We actually helped some friends dig it up and transplant it to their farm (that’s how much we dislike it, we just didn’t want it to go to waste lol). Anyway, these sound delicious despite my aversion to all things rhubarb, so we may have to give them a try with our friends rhubarb that we transplanted (it comes back every year!). Thanks for sharing with us at the homestead blog hop, hope to see you again this week!
Oh goodness, that is quite an aversion to rhubarb. Ha! I do hope you will give these muffins a chance. I can almost guarantee you will LOVE them 🙂 Thanks for stopping by and have a great summer, Danielle!
Gluten free rhubarb muffins looks delicious,thanks for sharing with Hearth an d soul blog hop. pinnning
I love hearing about family food history, Sammi so I really enjoyed this post. Also love your delicious Rhubarb muffin recipe. Pinned and tweeted. Thank you for being a part of our Hearth and Soul Hop.
I was the same way with rhubarb growing up, but now I love it! 🙂 Thanks so much for sharing these with us at Allergy Free Thursdays!
I’m so glad I’m not the only one, Raia! I really do look forward to eating it now which is a far cry from childhood 😉
Hi there, Sammi! These FANTASTIC looking muffins are going on my “must make” list for the summer…the list I just now decided to create after seeing your recipe! I don’t think I’ve ever eaten rhubarb outside of a strawberry rhubarb pie so I’m excited to try the rhubarb out on its own. I’m not gluten-free (although I know it couldn’t hurt:-/), but honestly, these days I have a hard time telling the difference between the two!
Thank you so much for sharing this recipe. I’ll have to let you know how they turn out:-)
I hope you’re smiling and having a wonderful Friday.
Hi Katie! You are too funny. I will not argue, strawberry rhubarb pie is delicious! I just know you will love these muffins too. We had “brinner” last night and these muffins accompanied our eggs 🙂 YUMMO! Feel free to use whole wheat pastry flour if you don’t have gluten-free. They have always turned out amazing no matter which flour I have used! Have a great weekend!
These GF Rhubarb Muffins sound so delicious! Such a great Summer treat! Pinning!
I just made another batch last night! Yes, Ilka, they really are that good 🙂 I hope you enjoy them!
These muffins look amazing!
Thanks Bethany! Yes, they are ahhhhmazing 😉 My top 5 favorite muffin recipe EVER!
I’ve always loved rhubarb but the rest of the family are not so keen, this could be a great way to change their minds!
Well I have to side with your family, I was not keen on rhubarb either until these muffins! 😉 I hope they will give them a try. My kiddos LOVE them!
Rhubarb is not my favorite either; however, these muffins look really delicious. I might have to reconsider and give them a try! Thank you for linking up at the Family Joy Blog Link-Up Party. Hope you are having a great week!
Oh, I SO hope you will reconsider and bake these muffins! Seriously, rhubarb has never tasted so good 🙂 #YUMMO Thanks for stopping by Cristina!
Our local organic farm stand is selling rhubarb and I have wanted to try a new recipe other than pie with it, so perfect timing for you to share this recipe! If I have some left over, I may have to get that rhubarb wine recipe 😉
LOL Too funny, Angela! I can’t say I have the wine recipe to give you, so the muffin recipe it is! 😉 I love that there is only 3/4 cup sugar for 18 muffins stuffed with rhubarb. Amazing!
My all-time favorite dessert is rhubarb pie! I make it most every Thanksgiving and love it with a dollop of simple whipped cream. Yum!
I have only had strawberry-rhubarb pie! Yours sounds delicious especially with the addition of whipped cream 🙂 Thanks for stopping by Gleniece!
Thanks, Sammi, Loved reading this and love the picture of Mom and Dad. It touched my heart this morning. Thanks. I will share this recipe with one of my good friends. Have a good week end. Love you, Aunt Cyndi
Thank you so much for taking the time to leave this comment, Aunt Cyndi! I knew I had seen a photo of Grandma and Grandpa by the garden and had to find it. Like you, whenever I look at it I smile 🙂 I hope your friend likes the recipe. It truly is wonderful! The crumb is so light and the slight tartness of the rhubarb is delish! I love you too and hope you have a great weekend as well.
