O.M.G. I am so freaking glad Monday is over. It was the dreariest and lamest Monday I’ve ever had and it did not help with my PMS b*tch mode I had going. Meaning have, it’s definitely still going. I’m still feeling majorly b*tchy today. Luckily, I made key lime pie parfaits yesterday to calm the nerves and bring the sunshine in! Then guess what happened?! GUESS.WHAT.HAPPENED. My husband walked in with a bag from Whole Foods…filled with ice cream, gluten free cookies and flourless chocolate cake. After being together for 4 years, he officially knows when dessert needs to be in our house. He’s so smart. Slow, but still smart.

You know how HGTV has their Smart Home giveaway? They do it every year and give away a home and a car and cash. Is any of this real? Like, who the eff wins this home and do they actually get to keep it? Or do they sell it? And how does taxes work when it comes to that? They have one for Raleigh, NC right now and they’ve been promoting it for a LONG time. And they say you can enter daily. Do they do that in hopes of grabbing more emails to add to their newsletter subscribers? That’s what I imagine. And why do they do it? I just don’t understand it and I would really like to. TELL ME THINGS.

You know what’s funny? I always get annoyed when people ask dumb questions that they could just google themselves, but then I ask you guys to answer a question for me. I’m the worst. I’m just hoping one of you lovely readers have won one of the HGTV homes so you can give me the scoop. And I can congratulate you for entering daily into their home giveaway. That’s straight up dedication that should be acknowledged.

I think it’s pretty obvious when I have nothing to talk about. But nothing happened over the weekend. It rained the whole time so I just worked out and ate brunch. Then slept. I was really good at sleeping. But wait, we should talk about these muffins. I rarely work with rhubarb, but I always feel guilty about it because since it’s in season, I know you guys may have a ton of it! And since I’ve only used it one other time for my Strawberry Rhubarb Mini Pies, I decided they needed to make an appearance once again. And muffins are wonderful for breakfast or snacks or really anything, so just make these, ok!? Okcooltimetostopboringyou. Loveyoukbyeeeeeeee.

    Strawberries & cardamom are great compliments to rhubarb! Reminds me of Icelandic happy marriage cake- which I made for my Icelandic Independence Day Party last hear — at my home in Maryland. 😉 I get to go to Iceland often for work & it’s a phenomenal place.

  2. Shayna says:

    I hate when people ask dumb questions too! http://lmgtfy.com/ is the solution to that. You’re welcome.

    Also I must make these IMMEDIATELY!

  3. Cassie says:

    Thank GOODNESS this is the last week of school for me because if I had to come back to school on Monday, I’d just be so burnt out I might as well come in my pajamas and bring a snuggie to sleep in my classes! LOL! I cannot wait to start baking like crazy, especially with berries like in these muffins!

  4. Erinn says:

    I made these and they were delicious! I even subbed the tapioca for arrowroot since it’s all I had on hand.

    I have found that muffins with coconut flour often stick to the muffin papers. Does this happen to you too? And if so, any tips?

    1. Heather says:

      I use silicone muffin tin liners. They are reusable and nothing sticks to them!

  5. Jerri-Lynn says:

    Hi..for the rhubarb muffins could I leave out the strawberries. I can’t have strawberries right now. Would I add more rhubarb and it sweetener? Thanks

    1. juli says:

      sure you can do whatever you want. but adding more rhubarb won’t make it sweeter

    This is one of the best paleo basic muffins recipes I’ve ever found!! Not eggy or soggy! It’s a great way to use up all my rhubarb and I’ve used it also with my fresh raspberries from my garden and added some lemon oil! And they are delish! Can’t wait to try with other berries! My daughter doesn’t usually like my paleo baked goods due to the texture, but she told me this morning that I could make her some more as her and by boyfriend walked out the door with some of them for breakfast! Thank you Juli, another one of your recipes that has become a paleo staple in our house!!
