Rhubarb Oatmeal Muffins

Here is one of the muffins that I tried for the birthday party that we had! I got the opportunity to plant some rhubarb at my house when we moved back to MN and I love having it around during the summer and try to freeze as much as I can... These muffins were just the right kind of moist and had the most wonderful crunchy topping! These will definitely be in my rebake pile!!
