Rhubarb Muffins (Makes 12)

Rhubarb Muffins
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

Ingredients:
1 cup organic oat flour
2 tbsp ground flaxseed
1 cup oatmeal
1 tbsp. baking powder (aluminum free)
1/2 tsp salt

    • I really think you’ll like it! Just remember that if you don’t use an oil or “butter” (try Earth Balance non-hydrogenated vegan buttery spread) don’t use the baking papers and be sure to grease the muffin pan!
