What to Make With the Last of the Rhubarb? Muffins in Your Air Fryer or Oven

These are great, simple muffins that include a cup of chopped rhubarb. The recipe is an easy way to use that last little bit of rhubarb you might have on hand--or want to buy before rhubarb disappears from the markets until next year. The muffins are light, soft, gently spiced, and taste of tangy rhubarb. They also are reasonably nutritious with a little whole-wheat flour, canola oil instead of butter (which is really expensive right now!!!), and a limited amount of sugar. You can make the muffins in the air fryer or oven. The photos I'm posting show the air fryer version of the muffins. The muffins are great for dinner, breakfasts, and snacks. Enjoy!

Rhubarb Muffins -- Makes 12


1/2 cup of white whole-wheat or whole-wheat flour

3/4 cup of all-purpose flour

1 1/4 teaspoon of baking powder

1/4 teaspoon of salt

1/4 teaspoon of cinnamon

1/4 teaspoon of ground ginger

1/4 cup of canola oil

1/2 cup of plain yogurt (non-fat is fine)

1/4 cup of milk

1 large egg

1/2 teaspoon of vanilla

1 cup of chopped rhubarb

1/4 cup of sugar

2 tablespoons of dark brown sugar

Sugar to sprinkle, optional


In a large bowl whisk together well the flours, baking powder, salt, cinnamon, and ginger. In another bowl whisk together the oil, yogurt, milk, egg, and vanilla. Add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients and stir them together with a spoon until most of the flour mixture is incorporated (a few white streaks are fine--you'll mix the batter more when you add the rhubarb). In the bowl you used for the flour mixture, stir the rhubarb and sugars together well. Add the rhubarb mixture to the batter and gently fold it in until incorporated throughout. Spritz 12 muffin cups with non-stick cooking spray and divide the batter among the muffin cups. Sprinkle a little sugar on top of the batter in each muffin cup if you'd like. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees and bake the muffins for 20-25 minutes or until lightly browned. Alternatively, put a 3-6 filled muffin cups in your air fryer basket, put the basket in the air fryer, and air fry the muffins at 350 degrees for 10-15 minutes or until lightly browned and a pick inserted in the center comes out with no wet batter attached. Repeat the air frying process with the remaining batter if necessary.
