My Rhubarb Muffins+Recipe

My grandpa had given me some Rhubarb from his garden and I didn't have a clue what to do with it. But I searched several recipes online and couldn't decide what to make. My first thought was to make a rhubarb crumble which looked delicious but I didn't feel confident in making it...
I decided to go ahead and boil my rhubarb chunks and continue looking.

I came across a Rhubarb tea recipe I wanted to try out but once I tasted the boiled rhubarb water, I realized it was too gross a flavor to drink lol. So I went ahead and pureed up my rhubarb in the food processor and added some sugar to it. It came out to an applesauce like texture and I let it sit in the fridge until I could think of what I was making. I decided I would go ahead and use my banana muffin recipe but use the rhubarb mix in place of the bananas. I didn't exactly follow a recipe in full though, I just looked at the items I needed and eyeballed the measurements as I poured them into the bowl. 
I added in my own touch too :)
(the brownish color is what my pureed rhubarb looked like, the yellow is the rest of the batter it was going into)

In the large mixing bowl I added in:
Flour -about a cup or so
Sugar -about half a cup
Butter -about 1/4 c
The Rhubarb mix
And Oat Bran flakes about 1/2c
-Blended all the above together then added in:
Baking Soda -approx 1tsp
Baking Powder -approx 1tsp
Salt -a pinch
Cinnamon -about 1 1/2 TBS
Vanilla -about 2TBS

My measurements were random but those were my guesses lol....
I blended it all together, then sprayed a muffin pan and put my batter into each muffin round. 
Baked in the oven at 350 degrees until nicely browned on top.
