The Best Healthy Muffin in Toronto
What's the tastiest, yet relatively good-for-you muffin in Toronto? I love muffins, but am often disappointed by the fat-laden, slightly chemical-tasting offerings at many bakeries.
Interesting flavours and textures, sweet or savoury suggestions welcome.
Naturally Yours, in First Canadian Place, makes some of the best healthy muffins around. They're made with spelt flour and/or oats, are relatively low-fat, and are jam-packed with fruit. These are quite large and substantial, though, so the calorie count is probably still quite high. You could cut one in half and eat it over two days, I suppose.
I suspect they're not low-fat, but The Remarkable Bean (Queen & Beech) makes amazing savoury muffins. Very tasty flavours: walnut/gorgonzola; cream cheese/sweet chili, to name just two. At least these are relatively small, not the ginormous monster muffins you see in some places.
