After breaking open a sampler pack from Penny's Low Fat Desserts, and experiencing a heavenly treat known as Penny's Low Fat Desserts Almond Poppy Seed Muffin Tops, I reluctantly turned my attention to another flavor. This time, I had my eye on Penny's Low Fat Desserts Carrot Raisin Muffin Top. Lucky for me, this was equally as delicious.
This top is ultra dense, tasting somewhat of a gingerbread type base with a plethora of raisins and a pinch of carrot shreds thrown into the mix. The dense texture makes for a very moist mouth feel, which is delightfully complemented by the abundance of plump raisins. The muffin top is further enhanced by the thorough allspice and clove additions that take this treat over the top!
A 56 gram muffin top provides 110 calories, no fat.10% of the daily value for sodium, 4 grams of fiber and 12 grams of sugar.
The all natural, preservative-free, ingredient list for Penny's Low Fat Desserts Carrot Raisin Muffin Tops includes water, wheat flour, raisins, sugar, carrots, dried plums, erythritol, milk, chicory root, cellulose, oats, natural flavors, leavening, rice syrup solids, cinnamon, salt, palm oil, nutmeg, soy lecithin, cloves, allspice, xanthan gum, sodium alginate, guar gum.
Penny's Low Fat Desserts Carrot Raisin Muffin Tops can be purchased at their online store, $34.49 for a box with 24. To put things in perspective, that's cheaper than a muffin from Starbucks and infinitely more waist-line friendly, but it is still a bit pricey! Still, this fat free, all natural, individually wrapped treat that will give your kitchen a break and take your mouth to a seasonal utopia of sorts.
