This recipe was passed to me by a friend who says they are the "perfect breakfast muffin recipe".
If you don't have rhubarb on hand - no problem - you can make these muffins with chopped apples in stead of the chopped rhubarb, or use a combination of both - a veggie AND fruit muffin! ... because, Rhubarb is a veggie after all ;)
The granola cereal provides a boost of soluble fibre too! ... Nutritious AND Delicious!
These muffins are amazingly moist and freeze very well.
I made these muffins past Saturday, and they disappeared the same day!
Note - You can use fresh or frozen rhubarb for this recipe.
If you use frozen rhubarb, thaw it first, in a sieve, over a bowl, and discard the excess liquid.
1 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
1 3/4 cups granola cereal (without raisins), divided
3/4 cup granulated sugar
2 tsp. baking powder
1 tsp. ground cinnamon
1/2 tsp. salt
1/8 tsp. nutmeg, (optional)
2 medium size eggs
3/4 cup milk
1/3 cup vegetable oil
1 tsp. vanilla extract
2 cups chopped rhubarb
nuts of your choice for garnish, (optional)
In a bowl combine the all-purpose flour, 1 1/4 cups of the granola cereal, granulated sugar, baking powder, ground cinnamon, salt and the nutmeg (optional).
Mix above dry ingredients together with a fork.
In another, larger bowl, beat the eggs, then, using "low" speed gently mix in the milk, vegetable oil, and the vanilla extract.
Gently, using a wooden spatula, stir the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients, just until combined.
Stir in the chopped rhubarb.
Muffin batter will be thick.
Spoon into a greased or paper lined muffin baking tray.
Sprinkle the remaining 1/2 cup of granola cereal over the muffins in the baking tray, pressing very lightly to ensure granola stays on top.
If desired garnish tops with a large almond or other nut.
Bake muffins at 350° F for about 16 - 18 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Yummy!

Is Your Rhubarb "Stringy" when you cut it?
