Rhubarb Muffins

One of my favorite seasonal fruits is Rhubarb. It is so tart it makes you pucker like a lemon, but with some added sugar a fabulous treat. One of our favorites is muffins. The recipe is simple and is well worth trying. Hope you enjoy. Let me know what you think.

Rhubarb Muffins

2 1/2 cups flour
1 1/4 cup brown sugar
1/2 tsp. salt
1 tsp. soda
1 tsp. baking powder
1/2 cup canola oil
2 tsp. vanilla
1 1/2 diced Rhubarb
1/2 cup walnuts (chopped)


1 tsp. cinnamon
1/3 cup sugar
1 tbsp. butter

Combine ingredients in order given. Place dough in 24 paper lined muffin cups. Mix the topping ingredients and sprinkle on muffins. Bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes.

Did you know?

You can cut the number of calories and fat grams in your baked goods by using the equivalent amount of apple sauce instead of oil (in other words, 1 cup of oil equals 1 cup of apple sauce).

When a recipe calls for 1 small onion, it's equivalent to 1/4 cup of chopped, fresh onion. You can substitute it for 1 to 2 tablespoons of instant minced onion...or 1 tablespoon of onion powder...or 1 1/2 teaspoons of onion salt.

If your salsa is to intense, mix in a few drops of vanilla extract. It tames the heat, making it seem less spicy.
