Rhubarb Crumble muffins.

Looks like a breakfast; WAS my breakfast. A good brekkie as well!
Its absolutely super duper healthy. well, to me anyway.

These muffins are stuffed with the most zingy fruits of all -rhubarb. Don't you just love that smell of sticky, cooking rhubarb when you wake up!?

They are best eaten when freshly made as the muffins are the softest and fluffiest and the topping is crispiest then. I came back to them the next morning and by that time, the crumble had gone a bit soggy :(

If planning to eat them after a day or two, I would advise zapping it in the microwave for a few seconds and then pouring custard over to make it nice and moist again. Sounds like dessert to me as well! Anyhow, enjoy the recipe :)
