Muffins are a great snack when made with wholesome ingredients. We can fill them with nourishing ingredients such as fruit, nuts, and whole grains. Using wholemeal self-raising flour increases the wholegrain intake.
Whole grains are important for dietary fibre, vitamins, minerals and healthy fats they provide. They are important for gut and heart health.
