Who doesn’t love muffins? They’re great for breakfast, snacks, or a late-night treat. But most muffins are just empty calories – carb and sugar bombs with little to no protein and bad fats. Enter Modern Muffin who recently released the newest product to their line up – Protein Muffins!
About Modern Muffin:
Founder and CEO Claire Putterman, started baking muffins more than 25 years ago when she devised a delicious way to incorporate wholesome fruits and vegetables into her children’s diets. She spent the next two decades perfecting her muffins’ taste, texture, and nutritional value. At the urging of friends and family, Claire realized it was time to leave her rewarding career as a French teacher and embark on a mission to provide customers a healthy, comforting, guilt-free snack. In 2011, she launched Modern Muffin from her home kitchen.
Modern Muffins’ concept is to give you a product that is healthy, yet delicious. There is nothing artificial in their muffins – they are baked with whole fruits and real, high-quality ingredients. They use very little sugar, butter, and oil, and only unbleached wheat flour to add to the highest quality.
Additionally, each muffin is wrapped individually for optimum freshness, making them perfect for an on-the-go breakfast or snack. Since there is nothing artificial in Modern Muffin, they are best enjoyed within two weeks(kept in the refrigerator) or frozen immediately(they will stay fresh for up to 6 months.
Each muffin contains:
• 10g of protein
• 44 organic superfoods (fruits + veggies)
• Live probiotics + enzymes
• Low added sugar
• Non-GMO ingredients
• Nothing artificial!
Modern Muffin offers four varieties of their protein muffins:
- Blueberry Hemp
- Banana Walnut
- Apple Cinnamon Flax and
- Chocolate Cherry Chip
Here is the rundown on all four flavors!
Of course this flavor was tops on the list for sampling – I mean, who doesn’t love blueberry muffins? As you can see, they got the texture just right – soft, tender, moist and packed with a seemingly endless supply of fresh juicy blueberries. How amazing do all of those pockets of fresh, juicy blueberries look?! YUM! I could eat three more right now!
Moist, tender and bursting with fresh banana flavor and warm cinnamon, this muffin has the perfect balance of walnuts, not too many but just enough to give you that yummy crunchy texture and warm nutty flavor. Warm this one up for 20 seconds in the microwave and you get the added bonus of your house smelling like a fresh bakery!
Apple Cinnamon Flax
Upon opening the wrapper, I was welcomed by the warm scent of freshly baked apple pie. Full of warm spicy cinnamon flavor and a generous portion of apple bits, this cozy muffin is pure apple-cinnamon-ey goodness. Apple Cinnamon Flax is a perfect option for breakfast or as a snack alongside a mid-afternoon cup of coffee or tea.
Chocolate Cherry Chip
Cherry and chocolate is one of my favorite flavor combinations. But if we’re talking chocolate and fruit combos, this one is right up there for me. Chocolate Cherry Chip is moist and not too sweet but full of deep chocolate flavor from the cake part itself and the mini chocolate chips that run throughout. The addition of fresh cherries takes this already excellent chocolate muffin to the level of magic. They are just shy of being dessert for breakfast!
Modern Muffin, your protein muffins are a game changer! You had me at the ingredients – sold! These are delicious, home baked, scratch made taste. The only drawback is that I didn’t get to the lick the bowl.
Overall: If I had to rank them, I’d probably have to say Chocolate Cherry Chip was a clear favorite, followed by a tie between Apple Cinnamon Flax and Banana Walnut and then Blueberry Hemp. I highly recommend their sampler box. It’s the perfect way to try all of the options before picking your favorite flavor!
