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
