Whole Wheat Rhubarb Muffins

For the first time in a long time, I found some rhubarb at the grocery store and couldn’t resist grabbing a couple stalks. I wanted to make something other than strawberry rhubarb pie and decided that whole wheat rhubarb muffins were the way to go.

Whole wheat rhubarb muffins - these yummy muffins are the perfect spring or summer snack. Made with whole wheat flour, rhubarb, and greek yogurt. The crumb topping also features brown sugar Splenda.

This recipe was originally posted in June of 2012, and today (2017) I’m updating it with some new photos. Back in 2012, I was in a Splenda craze, I used it in everything. Now, not so much. When it comes to sugar substitutes I personally use stevia these days. I didn’t want to change the recipe without testing it, but if you’re not a fan of Splenda there are some brown sugar stevia mixes out there that you can try.

I don’t cook with rhubarb often because believe it or not, it’s hard to find around here. I don’t have too many gardening friends so it’s not easy for me to ask for some and the grocery stores don’t carry them often.

I know, I guess I could always plant some but I move quite a bit where it feels like once we get settled and finish renovations, we’re off again. One day I’ll have my forever home (down in the Okanagan if I get a choice 😉 ) and I’ll have a few things planted and the chaos will end.

One can only dream…

So because of the lack of rhubarb available, I don’t have too many rhubarb recipes available here on The Bewitchin’ Kitchen but I do have these:

  15. It is my favorite snack during Summer. I enjoy eating muffins in the evening. It is delicious yet healthy treat 🙂

  16. Hello. I like this recipe and want to bake these muffins. But I use granulated sugar. How many grams do I need ? 

    • For the sugar topping?
      If it’s for the muffins – double it and use brown sugar.

      The sugar topping is 1/2 cup. I’m not 100% what grams are, but Google may 🙂
