I recently ’splurged’ and bought a box of Chocolate Chunk VitaTop Muffins from Wholefoods the other day. I say ’splurged‘ because they are a pricey little treat, selling for $6.00 for a box of 4 muffins! However, I have been hearing rave reviews about these 100 calorie muffins for so long that I was curious to see what all the ‘hype’ was about! When I dug into my first VitaTop Muffin, I knew instantly that I had to re-create this recipe some way-some how, or I would be racking-up some major Wholefoods bills in the near future…In other words, they were pretty darn good!
Before I knew it, I was off to create my own version of these fabulous muffins in my kitchen! I knew I wanted this muffin recipe to be extremely moist, and melt-in-your-mouth-chocolatey… All while maintaining the nutritional value, in case a huge chocolate craving ever hits!
If you have ever had a VitaTop, you know exactly how moist and deliciously chocolaty these muffins are. Well I’m proud that I can finally say that I have created a recipe that will give VitaTop Muffins a run for their money…Literally!!!
And get ready for this… these muffins have EVEN BETTER NUTRITION STATS than a VitaTop Muffin!!! I hope you enjoy this re-make recipe as much as I do, and you never find yourself shelling-out a ridiculous amount of money on a chocolate muffin again!
