Delightful Rubarb Muffins

IMG_6349 2

For the longest amount of time, I was not a fan of rhubarb, what so ever. However, one of spring’s many beautiful seasonal ingredients. I simply just had to make myself like it. Hence, the creation of these cuties back in Mars 2017. Since then I have updated the recipe and it is at minimum 10x times (trust me the old one was rather crappy) and absolutely lovely. My mission to start liking rhubarb was a total success.
