Strawberry Rhubarb Muffins

22 May

My sweet little nephew was recently dedicated at our church. After the service, our family had a big celebration brunch. My sister-in-law asked if I could bring muffins to the gathering and I knew these strawberry rhubarb muffins would be the perfect spring treat. Strawberries and rhubarb compliment each other perfectly and the oatmeal crumble topping gives it a little crunchy texture and adds wonderful fiber to the beginning of your day!
