Vitatops Recipe

Vitatops are just as easy to make at home. Chocolate chunks are just a bonus!

I ate Chocolate Chunk VitaTop Muffins like it was my job when I was pregnant. And I mean like a full-time, 40-hours-a-week-plus-overtime kind of job.

Oh, how I was very good at that job! Easily a gold-star employee.

If only I had been actually paid to eat chocolate chunk muffins that would have really been ideal. Instead, I was paying a pretty penny for 6 muffins to a box! Yikes!

So what makes these muffins so great? What’s the attraction? Why pay the price for 6 little muffin tops? I suppose it all comes down to the feeling of eating something chocolate and decadent, but something with health benefits.

The muffin tops are low calorie, low fat, and chock full of healthful ingredients. Seems like an impossible combination to recreate at home, right?

Not so! Although I was a little skeptical at the start of the recipe, a few tweaks resulted in a delicious chocolate chunk muffin that’s just as delicious and healthful as the store bought version.
