We give you the choice to use brown sugar or honey to sweeten these muffins. The sugar versions are sweeter and more in line with how sweet you'd expect muffins to be. The honey version has a nutter taste, from the buckwheat, and is much less sweet. We've assumed most people will make these muffins with sugar, so have based our nutrition panel on this version.
You also can substitute the margarine spread in the recipe with butter however this will mean the recipe is no longer low fat or low in saturated fat.
The bottom line is that these are relatively healthy muffins, so expect a healthy taste.
