  2. Place ¾ cup of the oats in a food processor; cover and process until ground. Transfer to a large bowl. Stir in another ¾ cup of the oats and the next six ingredients (through salt). Make a well in center of flour mixture.
  3. In a medium bowl combine the next four ingredients (through vanilla). Stir in rhubarb. Add rhubarb mixture all at once to flour mixture; stir just until moistened (batter should be slightly lumpy). Spoon into prepared muffin cups, filling each about three-fourths full.
  4. For streusel topping, in a small bowl stir together the 1 tablespoon brown sugar and cinnamon. Stir in the remaining ¼ cup oats and the walnuts. Sprinkle over batter in muffin cups.
