Rhubarb muffins

In a bowl, combine the flour, oats, brown sugar and baking soda.

Add the rhubarb and the grated orange rind. Mix well.

In another bowl, whip together the oil, orange juice and egg.

Add this mixture to the oats and flour mixture and stir just until moistened.

Pour the dough in the muffin pan.

Topping:

In a small bowl, combine the oats, brown sugar, walnuts, butter, cinnamon and ginger.

Sprinkle over the muffins and cook in a preheat oven at 200°C (400°F) for 18 minutes or until the muffins are golden and keep their shape after a slight finger pressure.

Let cool on a cooling rack.

Yield: 18 to 20 muffins.
