Those fluffy chocolate-chip muffins that beckon through the glass at our neighborhood coffee shop every morning? It’s a constant struggle not to order one, but the calorie counts posted next to those giants keep us on the straight and narrow.
The next time a craving strikes, order up a box of treats from Chicago-based Mind Your Muffin. The baker’s sugar-free confections (sweetened with stevia extract) are made with all organic ingredients--and none of the evil additives like artificial sweeteners, refined flours, preservatives and GMOs. ($19.50 for a half-dozen).
Mind Your Muffin has also perfected the size of the muffin--you won’t feel like you’re eating a softball for breakfast. And current flavors are as season-appropriate as they come: gingerbread spice, apple cinnamon and, our favorite, pumpkin spice, which was moist, sweet and satisfying with a hint of nutmeg earthiness. (For all you purists out there, there’s also, of course, chocolate.)
This is one muffin man who comes to your house. National (or speedy local) delivery is available, and if you’re a muffin fanatic, you can save a few bucks by ordering a monthly subscription that includes a dozen muffins and two freezer-safe carrier bags for saving--or spreading--the love.
