Strawberry Rhubarb Jam Oatmeal Muffins

Strawberry rhubarb jam lends a sweet fruity flavor to these delicious muffins sprinkled with just a touch of brown sugar, butter, and oatmeal crumble topping.

Strawberry and rhubarb go together like peanut butter and jelly, as you can see from this Strawberry Rhubarb Crisp and this Sweet Strawberry Rhubarb Sauce. However, it’s also possible to use rhubarb on its own, like in this Pink Rhubarb Ice Cream. The only thing you need to remember is that if you use rhubarb on its own, you will have to add more sugar to help decrease its sourness.

For this month’s “Rhubarb” themed Fantastical Food Fight, I would have loved nothing more than to use fresh rhubarb. Unfortunately, it’s way too early for my rhubarb plant to have produced any edible stalks and I was unable to locate any at my local market. Oh well, I guess store-bought strawberry rhubarb jam isn’t so bad, especially when used in homemade oatmeal crumble topped muffins.

Not only is there jam used in the batter for these muffins, there’s also a lovely bright red strawberry rhubarb dollop in the middle of each one for a sweet surprise. Between that and the buttery sugar and oatmeal topping on top of these fruity muffins, they’re pretty hard to resist, especially when spread with a bit of peanut butter, because after all, nothing goes together like strawberry, rhubarb, peanut butter, and jelly.

Suggestions:

  • Make sure to use quick cooking oatmeal in this recipe so that you get the correct texture.
  • Use paper cupcake liners to make cleaning your cupcake tin easier.
  • If the muffins begin to brown too quickly, tent them with a piece of foil. I suggest you check on the muffins after 8 to 10 minutes of baking.
