Fiber One is cranking out new products left and right. The newest invention to pop out of their test kitchen is Fiber One Frozen Muffins, which intrigued me to the point that I just had to give them a try. Of course, I chose the Banana Chocolate Chip variety!
While Fiber One advises that these would be great for an on-the-go breakfast, I can't say that I totally agree thanks to the soft doughy nature of the product and the sticky oat topping.
Each 65 gram muffin provides 180 calories, 6% of the daily value for total fat (and 5% for saturated fat), 7% of the DV for sodium, 28% of the DV for fiber and 18 grams of sugars. The ingredients list is a bit long starting off with water, whole wheat flour, sugar, banana puree, eggs, inulin and semi-sweet chocolate ... that was about 2 of the 18 or so lines full of ingredients.
I discovered Fiber One Banana Chocolate Chip Frozen Muffins for $4.50 at my local grocery store, but thanks to a $1.00 coupon that I had printed off from coupons.com, these 4 treats only cost me $3.50. Were they good? Yes! Would I buy them again? Maybe, if I didn't know that I could get a 56 gram Penny's Low Fat Desserts Chocolate Chocolate Chip Muffin Top for 100 calories, or VitaMuffin Deep Chocolate VitaTops - again 56 grams for 100 calories. Both of these are also fiber rich (although not as much as the Fiber One muffins).
