What do you get when you mix the baking genius of Udi’s with chocolate? You get sinfully delicious Double Chocolate Muffins.
Since being diagnosed with celiac it has been a never-ending quest for the perfect baked goods that are comparable if not better than the gluten-filled items enjoyed in the past.
When I got my hands on these muffins, I was pretty confident they would be delicious. Udi’s has successfully made sandwich bread that can be eaten straight from the package without heating, in white and whole grain. In addition to their fantastic sandwich bread their impressive gluten-free portfolio of products include thin restaurant-quality, oven-ready pizza crust, granola, blueberry muffins, lemon streusel muffins, these double chocolate muffins and their newly introduced bagels, which can also be found at some local Einstein Brothers in Denver.
When these muffins first arrived, I could hardly wait to open them. Before I even put the packaging away, I had a muffin out and on a plate to cut in half and share with my daughter. These are extremely large and would make a filling snack, breakfast or dessert. This is a good thing, because they are not low in calories at 350 per muffin. But, I guess to taste this good, you don’t expect it to be diet food. As soon as I took a bite, I knew this was a winner. The texture is nice and fluffy, yet rich and decedent, and full of chocolate chips. These are the perfect muffins to satisfy a chocolate and sweet craving all in one. My gluten-able husband and daughter agreed, these were too good, because now we have two left sitting on our counter and I am not sure I can enter the kitchen without indulging in one. I think these would make a great item to have on hand, in the freezer, for guests. If they can make it to the freezer that is.
In addition to being gluten-free, these muffins are also soy-, dairy- and nut-free. Udi’s is increasingly becoming available nationwide at Whole Foods and other larger grocery stores and speciality food stores. To order Udi’s online, visit here. The Double Chocolate Muffins will be available online May 5th.
