  • ¾ cup whole-wheat pastry flour or whole-wheat flour
  • ½ cup all-purpose flour
  • ½ cup packed brown sugar (see Tip)
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon baking soda
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • ¾ cup buttermilk

  • Prep

  1. Preheat oven to 350°F. Line twelve 2½-inch muffin cups with paper bake cups; coat paper cups with cooking spray. Or, coat muffin cups with cooking spray.
  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, both flours, the ½ cup brown sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Make a well in center of the flour mixture.
  3. Combine buttermilk, egg, oil, and vanilla in a medium bowl. Stir in rhubarb. Add the rhubarb mixture all at once to the flour mixture; stir just until moistened (batter should be slightly lumpy). Spoon into the prepared muffin cups, filling each about three-fourths full.
  4. For streusel topping, stir together the 1 tablespoon brown sugar (see Tip) and the cinnamon in a small bowl. Stir in the remaining ¼ cup oats and the walnuts. Sprinkle over the batter in the muffin cups.
  5. Bake 20 to 22 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean. Cool in the muffin cups on a wire rack for 5 minutes. Remove from the muffin cups. Serve warm.
