Rhubarb whole spelt muffins (vegan, additional sugar free)

10. September 2021

These rhubarb whole spelt muffins are very moist and fluffy. For these muffins I wanted to use whole foods so they are full of nutrition.

Healthy muffins

I decided to bake this muffins only with whole spelt flour. To sweeten them I’ve used dates. The sourness and tartness of the rhubarb pieces find in this sweet dough their perfect place. To give it a bit of a crunch I decided to add an oat topping (if you want additional sugar free muffins, leave the topping away). On top of this the muffins are completely plant-based (vegan), so they are perfect for every coffee table.

This fluffy muffins are baked with whole spelt four and only sweetened with dates. The sour and herb touch of small rhubarb pieces are the perfect combination with this batter. A topping based on oats gives the muffins an amazing crunch. They are also plant-based (vegan).
