Rhubarb season is here! I adore rhubarb but it’s only around for a short space of time so we’ve got to make the most of it, and I’ve got just the recipe to do that. This vegan rhubarb and ginger muffin recipe is bursting with fruity, spicy flavours that will make your kitchen smell amazing and will make your taste buds very happy. I’ve used stem ginger (ginger in syrup) in this recipe as it gives a warm, sweet flavour that’s not too overpowering and pairs beautifully with the sharpness of the rhubarb. They are light yet moist and have a bit of a crunch, thanks to a sprinkling of demerera sugar on top.
The muffins are free-from eggs and dairy, making them completely vegan-friendly! They will keep well in an air-tight container for 2-3 days at room temperature (if you can hold off from eating them all for that long). And they make a great breakfast-in-bed treat, perfect for Mother’s Day! Serve with a cup of chai tea, on a tray, with some flowers, in bed with your favourite PJ’s and a cosy pair of socks…
