So, why do we love rhubarb so much? It’s tangy, tart, and perfect to bake with. The rhubarb plant may have a short growing season but that shouldn’t stop you from using it in all the recipes until you’ve emptied out your garden [or your local grower at the farmers market] so today we are sharing a rhubarb recipe that you must try.
There is no debating that Grandma always does it best—which is why you are going to just love this Rhubarb Oat Muffin recipe that has been passed down 3 generations and somehow down to us!
This recipe does call for quite a few ingredients, but good things take time. You should have most of these on hand in your pantry to start making these now. You can make these muffins using the traditional recipe below or make a few alternate substitutions to up the healthy factor.
