Notes

  • Use fresh or frozen rhubarb in these easy rhubarb muffins.  If using frozen rhubarb, do not thaw. 
  • These brown sugar rhubarb muffins are sweet enough as is. We recommend using unsweetened applesauce.
  • Use cupcake liners for easy removal from the muffin tin or spray each individual muffin tin with nonstick cooking spray before filling with batter.
  • Fill each muffin cup approximately 2/3 full of rhubarb muffin batter.
  • We recommend eating these warm or cold spread with butter. YUM!
