Nutrition Facts for Blueberry Muffins

Blueberries are a delicious and nutritious way to spice up your muffins. You can buy them in stores, but many times they will contain added sugar, preservatives, and flavoring that add to the caloric and fat, making them a poor choice for a snack or desert. Low calorie blueberry muffins can be made at home, allowing you to control the ingredients and nutrition. The recipe is very quick and simple, involving whole blueberries mixed into a regular muffin mix. Chopped nuts, raisins, and chocolate chips are often added to the batter, but they do add extra caloric content and are optional. The muffins themselves offer a variety of nutrients from the blueberries used: the high antioxidant content provides numerous benefits, including promoting good urinary tract health, helping to preserve vision, promoting good brain health, and possibly playing a role in decreasing the risk of cancer, metabolic syndrome, and other cardiovascular diseases. Make sure to eat in moderation though, since the calories and sugar will add up!

What to Eat With Blueberry Muffins

Due to the sweetness and flavor from the blueberries, blueberry muffins are delicious when eaten by themselves. A muffin can also be topped with low-fat cream cheese or peanut butter, but these do add to the caloric content so eat in moderation!
