Weekly Recipe: Rhubarb Corn Muffins

 

Weekly Recipe: Rhubarb Corn Muffins
By: Lydia-Ann Ford, 2019 Diet Tech Intern – Normandale Community College
These cornbread muffins are a great way to use up an abundance of summer fruits. This recipe features rhubarb, but berries, cherries, or chunks of stone fruit would work equally well. Replace the egg with ground flax or other egg replacer and the recipe becomes vegan. The high ratio of cornmeal to flour gives these muffins a nice texture and a soft crumb. Whole grain cornmeal is a source of fiber, thiamin, magnesium, and manganese. Magnesium and manganese play a role in helping maintain bone health. Magnesium is important for healthy nerve and muscle function. Rhubarb stalks are a good source of dietary fiber and vitamins C and K!
