Top Muffins, Less Muffin Top
The muffintop is the best part, right? Yet most muffins are so caloric they're probably illegal in Los Angeles. And forget the healthy-ish low-fat kind, which are pointless and generally just as terrible for you. Making your own is not the same unless you have special muffin tins to produce enormous bakery-style lovemuffins.
I have found peace in the muffins from Essene, which are vegan and made from whole grains and fresh fruits. The non-scary ingredients are listed. While that all sounds boring to the heathen in you, shut the fuck up and listen for a second. These are absurdly delicious, not just for what they are.
It's like two bland, vanilla-white people got together and made exotic, stick-with-you babies and the added bonus: nobody got fat.
The most delightful flavor yet? The summer-y Coconut Mango with lime juice is pure contentment.
