**Disclaimer: I received free product in exchange for my honest review. All opinions are my own and sincere.
I am not a morning person, at all. I am also not great at establishing routines for myself or my family. That’s my mom fail.
Needless to say, breakfast – the most important meal of the day, is a huge challenge for me. We wake up late, and are rushing off to our first activity. I often feed the kids quickly as I multitask packing a swim bag, packing a lunch, or whatever it might be. Most days, I forget to feed myself.
When I was asked to try Mighty Kong Muffins , I was pretty excited. Not only because I LOVE food and trying new treats, but because I might score a yummy healthy solution to my breakfast woes. I was not disappointed. I found an easy healthy solution to a quick on the go breakfast. Mom WIN!!
I placed my order online at http://www.gorillalicious.com/ and received a dozen muffins within 3 business days straight to my door. I was happy to discover a sample pack of a variety of flavors when I opened the box. The first flavor I reached for was the Persnickety bran muffin which has persimmon, walnuts, and raisins.
These were all the tasty flavors in the box:
Rumplepumpskin – Pumpkin Cranberry Walnut Bran Muffin
Ape Dates – Date Walnut Bran Muffin
Orangatan – Orange Zest and Poppy Seed
Cocobanana- Cocoa Banana Bran Muffins
Mighty Luv – Cherry Chocolate Bran Muffins
Persnickety – Persimmon Walnut Raisin Bran Muffins
I tried the first muffin straight out of the package. I must admit, I’ve never had a bran muffin. Silly, right? So I was surprised how easily it crumbled upon the first bite, but it makes complete sense as these muffins are all bran, containing wheat and oat bran. I was also pleasantly surprised by how moist the muffin was. I couldn’t quite taste the persimmon, but then again that fruit has a subtle taste. The walnuts and raisins made it quite yummy.
The other muffins were just as delicious and moist, each provided the flavor it promised. Below you can see the chunks of dates in the Ape Dates muffins. Yummy, moist, sweetness.
The box came with instructions to immediately store the muffins in the refrigerator or freezer since these muffins don’t contain any fillers, artificial ingredients, or preservatives. I froze half of them and put the other half in the refrigerator. When I was ready to eat another muffin, I simply took it out of the refrigerator, wrapped a moist paper towel around it, and microwaved it for 20 seconds. It was fresh as can be and crumbled upon the first bite just like the first muffin. I saw the same results days after, the refrigeration didn’t dry the muffin out at all.
For a frozen muffin, all I had to do was defrost a muffin for 20-30 minutes and heat it the same way. Deliciousness. Best of all, it makes for a quick, healthy, filling, tasty low carb breakfast. No better way to get your bran in and stay regular. There, I said it!
Note: these muffins contain eggs, milk, nuts, wheat. Some muffins available without nuts. Get your muffins today! Visit Muffin Kong Muffins at http://www.gorillalicious.com/
