Good low-fat muffins?

I admit it: I have a problem. A muffin problem. I'm totally addicted to them - I'd take a muffin over cake, ice cream, chips, basically any other craveable food.

I prefer the low-fat ones, not just for health reasons but because I find the regular too sweet/too greasy. That said, a good low-fat muffin is hard to find. They're either mushy, artificial-tasting or so full of other stuff that they're no longer a healthy option.

So, has anyone scouted out decent low-fat muffins in the city? Bonus points if they have good muffin top.

    The café attached to Whole Foods in Yorkville has some tasty muffins. They're not greasy at all. I think they have several self-proclaimed "low-fat" varieties as well.

      Here's the thing about the low fat muffins; they actually contain more sugar than the regular ones in order to make up for the flavour lost through reducing the fat. Just something to think about.

        I know this. That's what I consider a bad low-fat muffin - it throws the flavour off. Thus the search for a good muffin.

        @xtal: I've had great luck with WF muffins in other cities. Good to know the quality's carried through to this location.
