It’s rhubarb season and I was getting a lot of requests for something with rhubarb.. I’ll be honest I did not think I liked it, but these muffins proved me wrong 😉 the strawberry and rhubarb go so nice together and the brown sugar topping leaves a nice sweet sticky glaze on top. If you know me then you know I love a good muffin, and these just shot right to the top of one of my favorites! Makes 12 muffins at 3 smart points each and 85 calories.

  • Dice your strawberries and rhubarb up into small pieces, in a bowl mix them with 1 Tbsp flour, this will help with them not all sinking to the bottom of the muffins. Fold into your batter and divide over your 12 muffin cups.
  • In a small bowl combine your 1.5 Tbsp brown sugar and 1 Tbsp flour, add your cold margarine and blend with a fork, it will form a crumble like topping, sprinkle over your 12 muffins.

    Can I use frozen rhubarb instead of fresh for this recipe?
