Danielle Lapointe’s Calgary Stampede Rhubarb Muffins

READY IN: 30mins
Recipe by Danielle LaPointe

Rhubarb is in season just as stampede takes over the city! Everyone loves my homestyle batter, it rises into sweet and sour muffns, full of country flavor! YaHOO! Note: You can sub regular apple sauce for the strawberry kind. I use one kid snack size cup.

OUTSTANDING muffins! One of the best I've ever made, and I make A LOT of muffins. These are definitely Top Ten worthy. The tangy rhubarb, subtle crunch of coconut, and sweet grated carrot are perfect together. I used 1/2 cup of Recipe #28154 in these muffins and highly recommend it if you have time...also excellent. A few changes I made: I cut the sugar to 1 1/2 cups as we prefer it less sweet (might even do 1 cup next time) and also used half the streusel topping and didn't miss it. Also used part white-wheat flour. Baked for 22 minutes, then pulled and quickly broiled the tops. This made 18 medium muffins. Wonderful, I can not praise these highly enough! Thank you, Danielle!
