Great tasting muffins. I recommend adding extra rhubarb but otherwise followed recipe as is.

I replaced the oil with applesauce and added a half cup more of rhubarb. I also used plain greek yogurt and a tsp of vanilla instead of vanilla yogurt. They turned out very good; not too sweet and a nice healthier version of rhubarb muffin.

My family raved about these. I made only minor changes, but if you're easily offended by such reviews, please move on... As I do in all muffin recipes, I added 1/8 cup each ground flaxseed meal and wheat germ, subbed applesauce for the oil, and used Splenda (brown sugar) baking blend. I also upped the baking soda, salt, and cinnamon to 1 tsp each. Used a whole 6 oz container of french vanilla yogurt, and subbed unsalted butter in the topping because I had it on hand. The topping is absolutely fabulous and just the right amount - I will definitely try the topping on my other muffin recipes! I added the rhubarb to the wet ingredients instead of the dry, don't think it adversely affected the results though. I made mini muffins in a dark pan, baked at 325 for 17 min. So yummy! I think you could successfully sub pineapple for the rhubarb too.

Just did my second batch of these. I love them just the way they are. I do suggest you have the rhubarb chopped up pretty small. Might try the suggested version of using apple sauce on my next batch.

My sons and I loved this recipe. I added 1/2 cup more rhubarb and a nectarine the second time I made it, I also doubled the rolled oats topping. With peach season here I think you could successfully sub peaches for the rhubarb too.

Awesome stuff! I doubled the amount of rhubarb.
