KETO STRAWBERRY RHUBARB MUFFINS

Keto Strawberry Rhubarb Muffins! I knew I had to make these this year because every summer we have a beautiful rhubarb plant pop-up in our garden. 

It's one of my favourite things to bake with! It's got this nice tanginess that makes muffins, cakes and pies taste so good. 

When I was little I used to take the rhubarb seeds and spread them everywhere because I loved it so much and wanted us to have more rhubarb that my Mom could make me muffins with…needless to say, she was not too pleased about me spreading rhubarb to all parts of our garden. 

But today it's my turn to make muffins and I have to say, these turned out delicious! I love the combination of strawberries and rhubarb. These are super soft inside with a crispy exterior.

If you don't have rhubarb you can also make these with strawberries and some lemon zest! Still delicious. But if you haven't had rhubarb before and you can get your hands on some.. I'd highly recommend it! You won't regret it.

Ingredients In Keto Strawberry Rhubarb Muffins

  • Xanthan gum a great way to improve elasticity in gluten-free baked goods. It’s used alongside vital wheat gluten to provide the best possible “crust-like” texture. If you do not have this ingredient you can still go ahead with this recipe but I’d recommend it if you can get your hands on it.
  • Almond & Coconut Flour – I use the Kirkland Costco brand of almond flour (I buy it in bulk on Amazon or at Costco itself occasionally) and this brand of coconut flour for this recipe. As I’ve noted in many of my past recipes, the brand of almond and coconut flour can affect the final outcome of the recipe because absorbency can vary depending on how the flour has been processed.
  • Powdered/Granular Monkfruit Erythritol Sweetener  –   I use the SoNourished brand for both granular and powdered sweetener and love it! The powdered is the best option for no-bake goods and desserts where you want a very smooth final product. But it bakes well in any recipe. **UPDATE** lately I’ve switched over to THIS brand of powdered sweetener because of trouble ordering the first one so you can order whichever is easier for you!
  • Coconut Oil – Fantastic for a keto diet because it contains MCT’s (Medium Chain Triglycerides) which are a great energy source in ketosis. It also just happens to make super soft and delicious muffins!
  • No Sugar Added Strawberry Jam – I use the E.D Smith brand but you can use any low-sugar jam.
  • Blackstrap Molasses– *See the tips section for why I use this and how to substitute it if you'd like.

Tools I Used To Make Keto Strawberry Rhubarb Muffins

  • Low Carb Substitution Guide – This is totally optional but if you like my recipes, I now have a $5 guide available with all of the substitutions I use to create every recipe on my site. You can use this to convert old traditional recipes and create new keto recipes! You can purchase it here and/or read more if you are interested. 🙂 I appreciate your support so much guys!
  • Nutritional Food Scale – AKA my best friend. This little buddy has been with me for over 4 years and never fails. Perfect measurements and only needs the batteries replaced maybe once a year!
  • Muffin Scoop – perfect for making even, rounded muffins every time! I also use this for some cookie recipes too!

Tips For Making Keto Strawberry Rhubarb Muffins

  • Make sure to form these muffins how you want them to come out as they hold their shape VERY well. I use a muffin scoop for nice round muffins that are all the same size.
  • When baking these, I recommend baking them on a lower rack in your oven because the tops tend to brown a bit before the middle is fully cooked through. This doesn't affect their taste though so don't worry! 
  • Bake these for 25-35min. They take longer because of the moisture coming from the strawberries and rhubarb but trust me it will be worth it! These are super soft inside with a crisp top. I love them warm with some butter!
  • If you don't have rhubarb, these still make great strawberry muffins! You could even add some lemon zest in the batter for delicious strawberry lemon combo!
  • You don't have to use molasses in this recipe. I do because it's minimal added carbs for a strong brown-sugar-like flavour. It's also low GI for those worried about the sugars in it. It only adds 2.5 carbs to the WHOLE recipe, which is 0.31 carbs per muffin. PLUS when we are combining it with something high in fibre, we actually lower the GI effect even further. BUT if you want an alternative, you can also use a brown sugar sweetener like Sukrin for part of the sweetener called for.
