Rhubarb Muffins

READY IN: 40mins
Recipe by Deantini

I came up with this muffin recipe based on 2-3 different recipes I have been using from Zaar. I ran out of Splenda, otherwise I would have used all Splenda and no sugar. I found it really interesting how much lower the yield when using Splenda and/or apple sauce instead of butter. Another recipe with 1/2 cup of butter and 1 1/2 cup sugar yields 24 muffins.

These are very good, and they taste much more decadent than they are! I used whole wheat and oat flours (oat is so light in baked goods), and I decreased the sugar to 2/3 c and omitted the Splenda. We especially enjoyed the topping, and while I used the butter this time I think it will be just as good without it next time. I have recently fallen in love with rhubarb and I'm so glad to have found this recipe. Thanks so much for posting! Made for PRMR tag.
