Rhubarb Orange Muffins

A great combination
 rhubarb  and orange.
These heathy muffins
are delicious and
sure to disappear fast.

2 cups flour
3/4 cup sugar
1 1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1 tsp salt
2 tsp orange zest
3/4 cup chopped pecans (optional)
1 1/4 cups finely chopped rhubarb 

1 egg
1/4 cup vegetable oil
3/4 cup orange juice

Preheat Oven to 350 deg.
In a large bowl whisk together the  flour, sugar, 
baking powder, baking soda and salt. 

Add the pecans and orange rind.

With a wooden spoon, stir in rhubarb.

In a smaller bowl, combine the egg, (My eggs were small so I added 2) add also the vegetable oil and orange juice. 

Add this mixture to the flour mixture.

Fill muffins tins 3/4 full.
I made 17 medium muffins with this batter.
Bake at 350 deg. for 25-30 mins.
Cooked when a toothpick inserted in
 the middle comes out clean.
