Banana Rhubarb Muffins #MuffinMonday

I'm not promising that this is my last rhubarb recipe of the season but we are getting near to the end of the harvest.  However, my freezer is full so I may be sharing another one or two but not one or two a week as I have been.

I'm not complaining.  Rhubarb, like any other seasonal vegetable, is very abundant for a short while and then, unless we preserve it, we have to wait a whole year to enjoy it again.  So when the going is good, I make a ton of rhubarb recipes. 

This recipe combines the tart goodness of rhubarb with the creamy sweetness of bananas in a delicious, tasty muffin that is sure to become a seasonal favorite.

Banana Rhubarb Muffins

Welcome back to Muffin Monday......
Stacy of Food Lust People Love invites us to join her on the last Monday of each month in sharing a Muffin recipe.  Muffins are the perfect food.  They take little time and effort and the reward is a wonderful grab and go breakfast or afternoon snack.  You can also make savory muffins to accompany your dinner.  I especially love them with soups and stews.

Let's see what muffins are being shared today........
I always seem to have overripe bananas on my counter that end up in the freezer.  These are a great start for cakes, quick breads and, of course, muffins.  I start with just my Basic Banana Muffin and then from there the possibilities are endless.  You can add Craisins, Maple or Nutella.  They can be Gluten Free like these Chocolate Coconut Banana Muffins or mixed with Peanut Butter and Chocolate Chips.

But today, they are studded with slices of tart, delicious, rhubarb and they are amazing.  So if you still are lucky enough to have some rhubarb in your garden or you were wise enough to preserve some in the freezer, this is your lucky day.  You are going to love how they flavor those basic banana muffins that we all love.

This may be closing out my rhubarb recipes but now my mint is completely out of control so I will be sharing tons of ideas with you on how to use all that fresh mint that is taking over your garden. Stay tuned.......

Banana Rhubarb Muffins

Time to use up the remainder of that rhubarb from your garden. Adding it to these banana muffins is a great way to enjoy the last of the harvest.
Prep time: 10 MinCook time: 20 MinTotal time: 30 Min


  • 2/3 c. sugar
  • 1/2 c. canola oil
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 over ripe bananas
  • 1 t. vanilla
  • 1 2/3 c. flour
  • 1 t. baking soda
  • 1 t. cinnamon
  • pinch of salt
  • 1 c. small diced rhubarb


  1. In large bowl of stand mixer, fitted with the whisk attachment, mix the sugar, oil, banana, eggs and vanilla until well blended.  Set aside.
  2. Whisk together the flour, baking soda, salt and cinnamon.  Form a well in these ingredients and pour the egg mixture into the well.  Use a wooden spoon or spatula to mix together until just combined.  Stir in the diced rhubarb.

  1. My rhubarb is not liking the hot weather at all! Glad I froze some to give these muffins a try in a few weeks :)

  2. I am feeling better about your many rhubarb recipes since I discovered that my local grocery store sells it in the frozen section. :) And we always have ripe bananas to use up so your muffins will be on The List!

    1. Great way to use up your overripe bananas....Don't they seem to multiply quickly?

  3. This is a tasty muffin and the overripe banana in my counter is going in for this recipe. Thanks for sharing.
