These were pretty good, but you should definitely use fresh rhubarb.

These were very tasty! I did make a few changes, just so these would work with our dietary guidelines we live by. I susbstituted 3/4 c. honey for the sugar, I used white whole wheat flour instead of AP, I used yogurt instead of oil and 2 egg whites instead of 1 whole egg. I also chose not to sugar the top of the muffins. And I baked them in mini muffin tins (mini muffin yield was 35, and the bake time reduced to 14 minutes at 350). These were phenomenal! We loved them!!

The family loved these muffins. I did add more Rhubarb to make it more tangy and used raw sugar to top it. Great breakfast muffin!

These were pretty good, next time will add more rhubarb and probably cut back on sugar. I also did not sprinkle the recommended 1/4 cup of sugar over the top of the muffins, maybe a tsp per muffin at the most - and I made jumbo muffins. I also used 2 egg whites rather than 1 egg to cut some fat and calories. All in all were good, but not the best.
