Buying Tips

Buy muffins in the bakery section of health food and grocery stores. Choose the whole-grain and lower-fat varieties whenever possible.


Muffins come in a nearly endless variety of flavors—usually sweet, but sometimes tart—and may contain nuts, seeds, fruit, chocolate, spices, and other ingredients. Among the most popular flavors are bran, blueberry, and corn. They’re available in low-fat, fat-free, whole-grain, wheat-free, and dairy-free versions.
