VitaMuffin Review + Lulu Giveaway Winner

Hey hey, it's Saturday!! :)

Good morning(ish) everyone!

Justin & I are off to a relatively slow start this morning.

Needed to get some extra sleep in after a long work week.

It felt good! 

So, once I picked myself up out of bed, I headed into the kitchen and decided to take care of a little box that has been burning a hole in my pantry.

VitaMuffin BlueBran Muffins

I got the urge to bake muffins a couple of weekends ago so I bought this box + some blueberries for the "garnish." 

I love VitaTops so these muffin mixes have been intriguing me for a while. 

Unfortunately, I didn't get around to making them, and the blueberries were all subjected to my morning oats routine.


I decided to give the mix a go anyway this morning, sans blueberries. 

The stats on these babies are so great, I knew they would either be a miracle or come out tasting light straight dog food

I followed the directions on the box, except I did 1/2 cup water + 1/2 cup unsweetened almond milk, + 1/2 tsp. pure vanilla extract, and  + 1 tsp. ground cinnamon. 

22 minutes later and we had ourselves some VitaMuffins! 

There were 12, but someone couldn't wait to eat his.  

He was a fan :) 

I decided to spread mine with a little bit of Jif Natural PB.

I gotta say, they are pretty good! Even without the blueberries. 

I told Justin "wow, they taste just like bran muffins!"

And then I glanced at the box...

Hey, I hadn't had my coffee yet, mmmkay? 

I think my next mission is going to be to come up with a homemade (aka not out of out of the b.o.x.) bran muffins.  My grandma always made bran muffins growing up, and I absolutely LOVE them. 

Since that was only a dinky little thing, I had a smoothie-a-la-Justin...

And then promptly made another muffin to have with my coffee. 

Now I am full and ready to share the winner of the Lulu hoodie giveaway! 

Yay yay yay! 

Thank you so much to everyone who "entered" - I really enjoyed reading your comments and I will be making sure to fulfill all of your requests! :) 

I did a little random number generation for this one...

Then cross referenced the entries...

And the winner is...


Send me your address (, Miss Crystal, and I will send you off your adorable hoodie! 

Giveaways are fun - I think we will just have to do another one soon! 

I'm off to drag Justin to the mall again today and then I think a nice dinner at home tonight is in order :)

Something to talk about: Do you ever make muffins from a box? What's your favorite brand/kind? 

Have a great day, everyone!
