The first time I found out that the average muffin is somewhere between 300-400 calories, I was shocked. There is no need for them to be that calorific, and with a few modifications, you can make them a heathy and delicious treat. Using an extra banana allows you to cut half the fat, and give them extra flavour, while wholemeal flour makes the muffins more nutritious. Based on the brands I used, each muffin is about 92 calories.
