Anyone who knows me knows that I am a snacker: I have smaller meals for breakfast, lunch, and dinner and snack pretty much throughout the day. That’s why I was so excited to receive a tasting package of Garden Lites Veggie Muffins–I’m always looking for delicious snacks to add to my regimen.
I’m not usually big on store-bought baked goods, especially out of the frozen aisle, but I have to say these Veggie Muffins are pretty darn good. And given how my schedule has been lately, these make an excellent breakfast on the go because you can heat them up right in the bag! I pop it into the microwave for just 35 seconds, throw it in my bag, and eat it as I’m walking to the metro. You can also let them defrost naturally, so add it to your lunch bag and it will be a great 2pm pick-me-up (although I have to say, they are better when they are warmed a bit).
There are five flavors in all:
- Veggie Blueberry Oat
- Zucchini Banana Chocolate Chip
- Zucchini Chocolate
- Carrot Berry Veggie
- Golden Corn Veggie
My favorite were the Zucchini Banana Chocolate Chip and Veggie Blueberry Oat, but honestly they were all pretty good. All of the Veggie Muffins are gluten-free, dairy-free, and nut-free, and 3 out of 5 flavors are also soy-free (the chocolate chips in the Zucchini Banana Chocolate Chip and Zucchini Chocolate contain soy lecithin). As a plus, these contain a good amount of protein and fiber.
Congratulations Garden Lites, we officially certify that your Veggie Muffins are a Chosen Bite!
