    Artsy Chef's Note:

    I took a LOL recipe and made it healthier and cut out most of the fat and sugar. I only grow green rhubarb, and I assume they would look prettier with red. These were very moist and slightly tart. I like them very cinnamony; if you don't, cut the cinnamon in the batter in half.

      This is a nice muffin recipe but I was dissapointed in how the muffins really stuck to the cups. I used teflon muffin cups/liners and sprayed them but the muffin itself stuck and was very difficult to remove. Maybe they are so lowfat there is not enough in the batter to keep it from sticking? I tested after 20 minutes - then 25 minutes and they were finished then. I did add a bit more cinnamon and also a dash of nutmeg in the batter. I did not use the topping tonight. Very nice taste overall and I just need to learn to tweak it so they do not tear apart when trying to remove from the muffin cups. Made for My 3 Chefs Event June 2008.

      These muffins are delicious!! They have just the right amount of tartness. I used brown sugar, applesauce, light sour cream and eggs. I substitued 1/2 cup wheat flour and next time will probably substitute more. 1 tsp cinnamon wasn't enough for me but I also didn't do the topping. I just also realized I left out the butter. I didn't know the difference! 30 minutes in the oven was too long for my oven & the muffins stuck to the liners. I'd like to make this in a loaf pan but am not sure how long to bake that.

      I like the ingredients used for these muffins, but next time i would chop the rhubarb into 1/4" slices, and then cut those also. Perhaps I didn't bake long enough (they were brown on top though), but they didn't bake all the way through and stuck to the paper.
