Spicy Rhubarb and Apple Muffins

I’ve become quite a fan of rhubarb this year, and keep looking for new ideas… This is the result of adapting three different muffin recipes, so I think I can call it my own! For a change, no vanilla today! Instead , some warm spices: cardamom, ginger, cinnamon and allspice.
