Tips for making healthy muffins
Muffins can be a delicious and convenient breakfast or snack option, but many store-bought muffins are loaded with sugar and unhealthy fats. Luckily, making healthy muffins at home is easy with a few simple tips:
- Use wholemeal flour: Swap out refined white flour for wholemeal flour, which is higher in fibre and nutrients. You can use 100% wholemeal flour or play around with mixing it with other whole grain flours like oat or spelt flour.
- Add fruit and veggies: Incorporating fruits and vegetables into your muffins not only adds flavour and nutrition, but also helps keep them moist. Try adding grated carrots, zucchini, or apple, or mashed banana, pumpkin, or sweet potato.
- Use natural sweeteners: Instead of using refined sugar, try using natural sweeteners like honey, maple syrup, or mashed dates. You can also use ripe bananas or applesauce to add sweetness.
- Watch your portions: Even healthy muffins can be high in calories, so be mindful of your portion sizes. Stick to one muffin per serving and pair it with a protein source like 99% fat-free Greek yoghurt or a hard-boiled egg for a balanced meal.
