Muffins are delicious. They’re easy to grab and eat on the run, and even better warmed up and dressed with a lovely pat of butter. Unfortunately, they also aren’t that good for you (especially with that beloved melty butter). The average blueberry muffins packs a whopping 460 calories, 15 grams of fat and 76 grams of carbohydrates. The “healthy” low-fat muffin fares no better, with 40 grams of sugar and the same amount of carbs as it’s full-fat counterpart. Your breakfast just became your cheat meal. Yikes.
But since we love muffins too much to give them up entirely and firmly believe in the healthy-fying of our favorite foods, we bring you a recipe round up of muffins that are actually good for you. These muffins contain whole wheat or are gluten-free, if that’s your bag. Healthy fats make them soft and moist, while power ingredients like greek yogurt up the protein. So now you can have your muffin, and eat it too.
