Here are this month's muffins.........
It's that time of year again so get ready for a bunch of rhubarb recipes here on the Farm.  I have made lots of rhubarb muffins in the past few years but these are the first where I roasted the rhubarb.  You may also enjoy my Banana Rhubarb Muffins, Cinnamon Rhubarb Muffins, Sour Cream Rhubarb Muffins, Strawberry Rhubarb Muffins and plain ol' Rhubarb Muffins.

Roasting the rhubarb first added a whole new dimension of flavor to the muffins and the addition of white chocolate chips added contrast to the tartness of the rhubarb.

I shared a strawberry rhubarb dump cake with you on Saturday and I have a few more rhubarb recipes coming up in July including ice cream and a cocktail so stay tuned.

  1. So jealous every year of your rhubarb! Roasting the rhubarb for muffins is genius!

    1. Thanks Stacy. My crop wasn't quite as abundant this year but I still have several recipes to share.

  2. I'm jealous too! Rhubarb and chocolate sounds so intriguing! Plus, they're gorgeous.

  3. This roasted rhubarb muffins looks delicious perfect. breakfast.

  4. I will admit to missing my rhubarb plant! Especially because these muffins look AMAZING!

    1. I transplanted mine last year and it did not do as well this year. I may need to move it again but will give it another season.

  5. Count me in the jealous crew! Never had rhubarb and have no idea what I'm missing but still jealous.

    1. Rhubarb is an edible stalk that is very tart. It adds a great tang to baked goods and sauces, especially when mixed with other fruits for a sweet/tart treat.
