Strawberry Rhubarb Muffins w/ Crumble Topping

After adventuring with my mom yesterday I really wanted to create a recipe that incorporated the fresh strawberries and fresh rhubarb we had gotten from a local farm. I also wanted to make it Gluten free if I could so I looked up some recipes online and then found one I made into my own.

With a mix of two gluten free flours, using chia as a stabilizer and Truvia sugar baking blend for a lower sugar index these came out really well. I also decided I wanted to incorporate a crumble topping to add a little more oomph to these gorgeous muffins. The consistency is moist and smooth with a wonderful sweetness and tartness that comes from the  rhubarb.

These can easily be used as a sweet treat after dinner or for a quick breakfast if you are on the go.  You can implement any fruit you want really but Strawberries and Rhubarb together really reminded me of a perfect kickoff to summer!! Enjoy these and let me know if you have any suggestions.
