The Best & Worst Muffins at Fast-Food Restaurants
2. Au Bon Pain
Though Au Bon Pain's Triple Berry muffin delivers less protein and fiber (two nutrients that keep you feeling fuller longer) than their Double Chocolate Muffin (the worst choice health-wise at this eatery), you'll save 320 calories with the berry muffin and not consume any saturated fat (the chocolate muffin delivers 40 percent of your daily limit of heart-unhealthy saturated fat). Don't get suckered in by their healthy-sounding Carrot Walnut Muffin (pictured) either, which has 560 calories!
Best: Low-Fat Triple Berry Muffin (300 calories, 0 g saturated fat, 4 g protein, 65 g carbohydrate, 720 mg sodium, 2 g fiber)
Worst: Double Chocolate Chunk Muffin (620 calories, 8 g saturated fat, 11 g protein, 86 g carbohydrate, 540 mg sodium, 4 g fiber)
