Gluten Free Blueberry Rhubarb Muffins

Dear Mom,

Last year on Mother’s Day, I made you Banana Walnut Muffins and wrote you a little letter because we didn’t get to spend the day together. Well, this year I DO get to celebrate with you…but I still made you muffins…and I totally wrote you another letter.  Here it is!

You slay me, mom. < – – – That’s slang for, “I think you’re really cool.”

No one can lift me up and jettison life into perspective the way you can, mom. You’ve been my biggest support and source for wisdom. You’ve given me strength, courage, chocolate, and tenacity. And so many other things.

You’re so freaking smart, caring, and genuine. We’ve done so many cool things together! There is not a person on this planet who measures up to you IMO (<- – – that means, “in my opinion,”). You make me want to be a better person, and that says a lot considering I pride myself on being an asshole. You never told me what not to do…unless I really really needed to not be doing it. Because of this, I trust and seek your opinion.

Since I have you here, I may as well confess that when I was in high school and I told you a tornado swept through the house straight into the liquor cabinet and sucked in the brandy you used for baking because as it turns out, tornados get thirsty too and they happen to be partial to brandy, I lied. Although plausible, that was a vicious lie. My friends and I made screwdies out of it. Meaning we mixed brandy and orange juice. Because that’s how you get drunk when you’re in high school. You utilize your resources.

Rhubarb is weird and it comes from outer space, but looky here, mom: rhubarb muffins. Ordinarily, it would make sense to bake a strawberry-rhubarb muff, but a flying wombat dive-bombed into the kitchen just as I took the strawberries out of the refrigerator and ravaged every last one of them immediately after tussling my hair. Translation: I was too lazy to go to the store and I had just gotten home from the gym.

Dude, mom. Check out the blueballs on this one. Err…I mean, blueberries.

There is one thing. I do have a bone to pick with you because of this sub-optimal frizzy hair you went ahead and gave me. Not very cool on your part, but I’ll let it go because that’s what you do when you love someone unconditionally. You just let that shit go.  You taught me that.

You hit the love ball out of the park, mom. Barry freaking Bonds. But you bake better and know way more about rocks than Barry Bonds ever will. Where was I going with this?

I love you to pieces.


Happy Mother’s Day!

These are amazing! I just made them last night and they're almost all gone this morning! I changed it up a bit though. I used coconut sugar instead of maple syrup and just added a bit extra coconut cream to make up the missed liquid and instead of GF flour mix, I made my own random mixture of about 1 1/2 cups almond flour, and 1/4 cup coconut flour and 1/4 cup fibre mixture (flax, psyllium husk, etc) and helps hang it together).

PS. I love your site. It's hands down my new favourite. I just bought your paleo power bowl cook book and am IN LOOOOOVE! You're hilarious and you kick ass. I'm not just saying that because you have the same name as me. Your site is the ONLY one that I've ever read the "pre-recipe ramble". Rock on.

I just found this recipe this morning and promptly took advantage of the small break in the heatwave! I, too, added can then gum plus a tablespoon each of flaxmeal and psyllium. These are fantastic! Thanks for sharing your mom's gift with the rest of us.

I made these and they were absolutely delicious! I used my gf flour mix and added 1 tsp. xanthan gum. I baked them a few minutes longer. I find at my higher altitude, all my gluten free baking requires a longer baking time.

Wahoo! So happy to hear it! It's been forever since I've made those muffins, and you've inspired me to bake a batch. Thanks so much for the feedback!

Would almond or coconut flour work here? What about flax eggs?
