Rhubarb and Oat muffins are a Whole Foods recipe that let’s you give baking with rhubarb a try this season.Tulips are blooming, birds are chirping and rhubarb is in season and available at Whole Foods– spring has surely arrived! Whole Foods is featuring “What’s Tasting Best Right Now” and we are lucky to include rhubarb in that category. I’ll admit that a few years ago I had to use Google to find out what that reddish-celery-looking item was in the produce aisle. Can anyone else relate? It is not a food that I grew up eating and to learn that it grew poisonous leaves and had a rather tart taste really did not heighten my interest at first. I encourage you to look beyond my initial impressions and to give this vegetable (yes, a vegetable!) a try. Temper the tart taste with a touch of sugar and you’ll be happy to bake with rhubarb for as long as its season may last.
