Rhubarb-Yogurt Muffins

Jessica Braider
Rhubarb is one of my favorite spring vegetables. It is only around for a short time, but when it is here I love to come up with new and different ways to use it. These muffins were an immediate hit with my family - there's something so fun about the little, tart nuggets of rhubarb sprinkled throughout.
Prep Time 10 mins
Cook Time 20 mins
Total Time 30 mins
Servings 12 servings


  • 1 cup all-purpose flour (use wheat/gluten-free, if needed)
  • 1 cup whole wheat flour (use wheat/gluten-free if needed)
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1 1/2 tsp. baking soda
  • 1/4 tsp. ground nutmeg
  • 2 eggs lightly beaten
  • 1 cup low fat plain yogurt or use any variety
  • 1/4 cup butter melted
  • 1 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 1 - 2 stalks rhubarb chopped into ¼-inch pieces, about 1 cup


  • Preheat the oven to 375 degrees and line a muffin tin with liners or spray it with cooking spray.
  • In a large bowl, mix the flours, sugar, baking soda, and nutmeg.
  • When well mixed, add the eggs, yogurt, melted butter, and vanilla and stir until the wet and dry ingredients are well combined.
  • Gently stir in the rhubarb.
  • Distribute the batter into the muffin cups and bake for 20 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the middle of a muffin comes out clean.
  • Remove the muffins from the tin and cool on a cooling rack. Store in an airtight container for 2 days or freeze for up to 3 months. To reheat the muffins, microwave until warmed through or heat in the toaster oven.


Do Ahead or Delegate: Measure and combine the dry ingredients, beat and refrigerate the eggs, chop the rhubarb, or fully prepare and freeze the muffins.
Scramble Flavor Booster: Use additional nutmeg or some cinnamon.
Tip: Rhubarb, often found thought to be a fruit because of its sour-sweet taste, is actually a vegetable. Like celery, it grows as stalks that are generally bright pink. (Have no fear if the rhubarb at your store is light pink or pale green; the color is not indicative of its ripeness or sweetness.)
