I have some frozen rhubarb to use up, but I have very limited experience with it. I was thinking muffins, but I was wondering if anyone had any advice. Rhubarb is pretty tart, right? More sugar? Is it watery when cooked?

Any tips are appreciated!

Have you had the strawberry rhubarb pie from Pie in the sky? That is my favorite pie ever.

I used frozen rhubarb in a quick bread and it turned out great. It might have been one of Isa's Forks Over Knives recipes.

I like the tartness, so I don't really add extra sugar. It depends what you like.

Maybe roast the rhubarb first to eliminate any water concerns. I wouldn't bother with extra sugar. I think the sweetness of any muffin batter would work with the tart rhubarb.

I love the strawberry rhubarb crisp bars on the smitten kitchen blog. It's not a vegan recipe, but the only thing that needs to be replaced is melted butter. I used melted cocnut oil. I use 5T instead of 6 because it's a bit oily with 6 tablespoons.

I just put in the chopped rhubarb. I don't usually add extra sugar, but do sprinkle some of it over the chopped rhubarb and let it sit (macerate, if you will) before mixing it in.

There's a recipe for rhubarb raspberry muffins on our family blog. Since 2012 I've had to eliminate gluten, so I can now also attest that the recipe also works well with alternate flours to the spelt originally suggested.
