Vegan & Gluten-Free Rhubarb Almond Muffins (+ Weekend Links)

Rhubarb Almond Muffins (Vegan + Gluten-Free) by The Green Life

I shared a photo of these rhubarb muffins earlier this week on Instagram and many of you asked for the recipe, so here it is!

These muffins are vegan, gluten-free and much healthier than your traditional muffins. They’re made with oat, sorghum and almond flours. The yogurt gives them a deliciously moist consistency and is used in place of some of the oil. They’re mildly sweet, with a bit of tartness from the rhubarb pieces. I topped them with an almond crumb for a bit of crunch. A perfect combo if you ask me. They’re not the prettiest, but they’re really delicious and disappeared quite quickly in the house.

If you make this recipe, I’d love to see it! Make sure to tag your photos with #thegreenlifeblog on Instagram.

Now onto the links that caught my attention this past week.


Speaking of rhubarb, I’m head over heels in love with Lindsey’s Strawberry-Rhubarb & Olive Oil Chocolate Cake with Chocolate Whip. So gorgeous.

Laura never ceases to amaze me with her inventive recipes and she blew my mind once again with her Bloody Mary Veggie Burgers. Definitely on my summer to-make list.

Sherrie invented a Potato-Less Potato Salad. Brilliant.

After all the anticipation, the avocado emoji is finally on its way!

Is alcohol unhealthy? McKel answers the question for us and gives us some good advice on how to enjoy it responsibly.

This made me laugh really hard.

Thanks to this Food 52 Veggie Burger roundup, vegetarians won’t have anything to envy to their meat-eater friends this BBQ season.

I love this all natural summer skin care guide from Hello Glow. I’m excited to try making my very first homemade sunscreen.

My Summer Cooking Workshop is in a week (eee!) and there are still a few spots left if you’d like to join. I’d love to see you there!
