I prepared these for the ZWT - Low Fat Challenge and they were wonderful. The peppery taste from the ginger highlights and complements the flavor of the rhubarb and the muffin itself (even with my lower fat changes) was still very moist with a nice crispy exterior. My yield was 12 well rounded large muffins and 6 mini muffins. My lowfat substitutions were to replace 1/4 cup of the sugar with Splenda; skim milk for regular; nonfat sour cream for regular; 4 teaspoons of oil topped off with applesauce to equal 1/3 cup of oil. Thanks Charlotte!!
