Rhubarb Muffins (Makes 12)
Use your favorite type of sweetener or sugar but be sure to add the calories and carbs to the totals in the nutrition column. These muffins are intended as a tea bread, but would also be lovely for breakfast or brunch. Depending on your tolerance for sugars and your preferences for the degree of sweetness you may wish to use sugar, rice syrup, or molasses. We do best with Truvia or Splenda because we both have to be very careful about eating sugar. It triggers wicked headaches! ~ Glyn and Will
