Preheat the oven to 350°F. Spray a 12-muffin tin with oil. (Batter will reach the top of the muffin tin. If your tin runs on the small side, make 16 muffins instead.) 

In a large bowl, whisk together buttermilk, sugar, butter and egg yolks until well combined. In a second bowl, whisk together flour, oats, sunflower seeds, baking soda and salt, and then stir into buttermilk mixture, just until combined. Stir in rhubarb.

In a clean, large bowl, whisk egg whites until stiff peaks form. Gently fold whites into batter and then spoon evenly into the muffin tins. Bake until puffed and golden brown, 25 to 30 minutes. Serve warm or at room temperature.
