Rhubarb Muffins recipe

These Rhubarb muffins don’t take a great picture; but they are delicious. I had mixed feelings about the rhubarb being a good muffin ingredient so I was pleasantly surprised. The yogurt and rhubarb give these muffins a nice moist texture. The chopped nuts on the top make for a delicious topping; but are a little messy. You could change that a little bit by using ground almonds if you wish to do so.

Rhubarb is in season in most parts of the country so it’s a great time to give this Rhubarb Muffins recipe a try. Enjoy

For some reason our local market’s bakery does not make Oat Bran Muffins. My wife really likes them and right now our only way to get them is to make them. I guess if you have a Cooking Blog this should be the only way. This oat bran muffin recipe is excellent, it’s simple to make, and there is very little cooking or prep time. Within a half an hour you can have hot muffins sitting on the breakfast table. Enjoy

It is a great year for apples in this part of Upper Michigan. The trees are just loaded. It is wonderful because there are so many different ways of preparing them. Last but not least -when you are tired of cooking them, you can slice, and freeze to make pies over the long winter. I decided to start the season with this Apple Muffin recipe. It is moist and delicious. Your family will love it!
