Rhubarb-Chocolate Chip Muffins


Better late then never…………right?

Rhubarb season is winding down and I’ve yet to share a single rhubarb recipe. Sometimes I’m a little slow to the punch, you know? Not shy to come to the party late, here’s my contribution before all the rhubarb is gone.

A few weeks back, I got a beautiful bundle of rhubarb in my CSA basket. It wasn’t enough to make a full pie or crisp so I immediately thought of chopping it up and putting it into a quick bread. After a few more minutes, that thought turned into making muffins. I decided to forgo the traditional pairing of strawberries, mostly because I didn’t have any, and decided instead, to throw in some semi sweet chocolate chips.

I mean, really, how could chocolate not be a great addition? It is chocolate after all.


As my dear friend Nina would say, yum scrum.

These muffins were soooooo good.

The chocolate and the rhubarb paired up better than I thought they would and I used a coarse sugar mixed with cinnamon as a topping that provided a nice crunch and a little extra sweetness.


These muffins didn’t stand a chance in my house. I had a difficult time going into the kitchen and not reaching for one. Which was a bit of a problema since I seem to pass through my kitchen 87 times a day.

Whatever. That’s why I work out.

So if you’ve got a little rhubarb lingering in your garden, this quick muffin recipe is definitely a keeper.

They might make your pants tight but definitely won’t disappoint in the tasty department.
