Rhubarb is a vegetable, and apples are a fruit, so here you have a muffin with both a fruit and a vegetable!

This apple muffin recipe makes about 18 medium-large muffins. You can freeze leftovers for future lunch bag additions. I made these muffins last weekend, and they turned out excellent choice!
