The Best & Worst Muffins at Fast-Food Restaurants (Page 2)

McDonald's Muffin

1. McDonald's

McDonald's is rolling out a new line of baked goods, which includes danishes, scones and, of course, muffins. Depending on how well the offerings fare in New England, they're considering national availability.

McDonald's Multi-Grain Berry Muffin (pictured) is a pleasant surprise: it has the lowest calorie count of all the muffins we looked at and boasts a healthy 6 grams of fiber. Watch out for their Blueberry Muffin, however, which packs in 45% of the daily value of saturated fat (based on a 2,000-calorie diet).

Best: Multi-Grain Berry Muffin (280 calories, 1 g saturated fat, 7 g protein, 51 g carbohydrates, 290 mg sodium, 6 g fiber)

Worst: Blueberry Muffin (390 calories, 9 g saturated fat, 5 g protein, 57 g carbohydrates, 290 mg sodium, 2 g fiber)
