Rhubarb Muffins

Rhubarb Muffin

Are you sick of rhubarb yet?   Not Me!  Here’s another one, Rhubarb Muffins.

Using wholesome ingredients, these were mixed, baked, and cooling  in 35 minutes.

Wilton Mini Muffin PanI bought this mini-muffin pan last year when they were on sale, and this recipe is perfect for it.

rhubarb finely choppedI started by picking fresh rhubarb, (2 stalks were enough), and chopping it finely.  These muffins are small, so big chunks would over-power them.  The best way for me was to split the stalk in 4, lengthwise, then chop them.

As I was chopping, I melted the lard in the microwave, took about 2 minutes on power 3.

Beat the egg, add the liquid ingredients, stir in the dry stuff, then fold in the chopped rhubarb.

I used a soup-spoon to fill the greased pan, then topped each muffing with a few slices of almond.
