staff pick: wheat germ muffins!

This staff pick is humble in appearance compared to most of our treats, but once you try it, you will understand why it's in our case every week and a regular breakfast item for many of our staff and customers here at Muddy's Bake Shop. The Wheat Germ Muffin may not turn too many heads; but what it lacks in the looks department, it more than makes up in flavor!

While the Wheat Germ Muffin is one of our healthier options, it does have a little brown sugar in it, which lends it a rich, dark, and satisfying flavor. The wheat germ itself also lends some sweetness, as well as a delightfully addictive nutty flavor that will keep you coming back for more!

So why eat wheat germ? Well, its great flavor is reason enough! But, as it isn't often I get to tout the health benefits of our products, I am very happy to note the nutrient content of this fabulous superfood. Wheat germ is the part of the wheat kernel that holds the most vitamins and nutrients, but sadly it is removed when making most flours. It is high in protein, fiber, B vitamins, healthy fatty acids, vitamin E, and too many minerals to list! Muddy's Wheat Germ Muffins are chock full of this stuff, so you really have no excuse not to come by Muddy's today and treat yourself to a Wheat Germ Muffin today!
