    Could use more sugar!!

    We loved these muffins. I used frozen rhubarb and omitted the walnuts. Will definitely make again.

  3. Dawn

    Really like these. I soaked the rolled oats in the buttermilk for about 1/2 hour and then added the other wet ingredients, and increased the cinnamon a little and added about 1/2 tsp nutmeg and 1 tsp vanilla. They were perfectly sweetened for my taste, and I really like the nuttiness of the whole wheat flour. My rhubarb always goes wild, so I’ll use this recipe often.

    Definitely needs more sugar. I’ll have to give them to my boyfriend who is borderline diabetic. Don’t do the trick Dawn did by soaking the oats in the buttermilk unless you want the batter to look like crumble you’d put on a pie. I’ll try something else next time.
