Healthy Muffin Ingredients:

Making healthy muffins is easy when you have the right ingredients on hand. Here are some of the items I always keep in my pantry for baking healthy muffins:

Oat Flour: I think that oat flour is the best flour for baking healthy muffins. It mixes very well, gives you the fluffy bakery texture you know & love, and there is gluten free oat flour that is perfect for those with food allergies

Honey & Maple Syrup: I like to use honey and maple syrup in place of sugar when baking healthier treats

Spices: We use a lot of spices in our healthy baked goods to add flavor. Cinnamon, ground ginger and nutmeg are always in our pantry

Baking powder & baking soda: help your muffins and other baked goods puff up.

What is the healthiest muffin to eat?

The healthiest muffin to eat is made with whole grains and has minimal sugar and fat added to it. We like Blueberry Muffins or Protein Muffins for a healthy muffin option.

Are homemade muffins healthier than store bought?

Usually homemade muffins are healthier than store bought. Homemade muffins usually have less sugar, fat, and ingredients than store bought muffins. They also don’t have any added preservatives.

Is eating a muffin for breakfast healthy?

Eating a muffin for breakfast isn’t the best healthy choice. Muffins don’t have a lot of protein and often are higher in calories but not as filling. A better choice is to pair a muffin with something higher in protein like nonfat greek yogurt or eggs.

How many calories should a muffin have?

Muffin sizes and calories vary greatly! Most muffins have anywhere between 100-300 calories for a normal muffin tin.
