Healthy Vegan Strawberry Rhubarb Muffins – Ayurvedic Recipe

I have been on a muffin kick lately and since strawberries and rhubarb are in season, I came up with delicious, healthy tasting ayurvedic recipe.

I don’t grow strawberries or rhubarb myself but I got some wonderful organic products at our local market.

Muffins are a great breakfast food and combine well with fruit. These strawberry rhubarb muffins are an excellent source of vitamin C & K, low in sodium, low in saturated fat and low in cholesterol

I eat muffins regularly as part of my Ayurvedic diet and use only natural organic sweeteners – as little as possible to give them that yummy sweet taste.
