ROASTED RHUBARB AND STRAWBERRY ALMOND MUFFINS

It's been a while since I shared a delicious recipe, but quiet a few things had taken over my time. In between finals, moving, being sick, and finally graduation, posting recipes just didn't make the cut. 

I'm excited to finally be done with school, settled into the new place, and baking up a storm again. 

As I close the chapter on school in my book, I'm excited to see what comes next. Do I feel different with an MPH at the end of my name? No, but I do have more free time and have gotten back a few extra hours of sleep. I'm hope to really amp up the blog and share more delicious and nutritious recipes with you!

These muffins are a delicious and seasonal snack or breakfast bite to start the day off right. Toast them and serve with a serving of nut butter for additional protein and deliciousness. The rhubarb and strawberry combinations makes for a great sweet and sour bite offset by the crunchy almonds. These colorful muffins will be sure to brighten anyones day! 

Enjoy!
