Blueberry Rhubarb Muffins

It’s officially Farmer’s Market season here in Wisconsin and Madison has one of the most fabulous farmer’s market line-ups I have ever seen. It’s encircles the Capitol Square in downtown Madison, over eight blocks of stands selling fruits, vegetables, plants, crafts and most importantly CHEESE!

I wandered around the Square after my run yesterday and picked up spinach, my BF’s favorite cheese, Everyday Cheddar, and most importantly some fresh rhubarb! The rhubarb (and the half-quart of blueberries in my fridge) was my inspiration in the kitchen today.

I based my recipe from this site but adapted it with a few healthy ingredients. I substituted butter for applesauce, some whole wheat flour and used my favorite Greek yogurt.


Prepping the ingredients!

The batter came together quickly and I love using fresh ingredients!

A quick 20 minutes in the oven and they are ready to go! I’ve already packed some up to bring to the office in the morning.

Yummy! I may have had a couple as my dinner...

These will be a great mid-morning snack this week. Hope everyone had a great weekend!
