Tasty Treat Thursday Strawberry Rhubarb Oatmeal Mini Muffins

I like to add a little something extra when I deliver a new mom meal for a member of my MOMS Club. I find it nice to offer a low to semi-sweet dessert, breakfast or snack option. Mini muffins are great because a mom can snack on them when they’re busy but need a pick-me-up, or their older child(ren) can have one in hand … dads like them too of course. Make these for yourself, for a brunch date, or to give a friend. Enjoy!
