I purchased these muffins in the frozen foods section of a natural foods store for $5.29 forÂ a package of four muffins. These aren’t your average sized muffins though- they are HUGE! Very thick, very tall. You could easily split them in half and save one half for later. Each muffin is 170 calories
The package suggests microwaving or toasting for best flavor.Â The first time I zapped the frozen muffin in the microwave for 40 seconds. It was perfectly thawed and warmed. So much so that the “browned” top and bottom of the muffin started to flake off, leaving a holey interior exposed. These muffins are soft with your “typical” rice bread flavor and texture- mild, dense, almost sponge-like. I tried to flatten the bread but it would bounce right back( for the most part!). It tasted good with butter and GF jam. Good, but not good enough to write home about. As I ate the muffin, it retained it’s shape and did not break off into pieces or crumble in my hands, as some rice flour products have done.
Overall, it was a decent gluten-free enlgish muffin. I would suggest toasting it for best results.
Pros: nice flavor, large size
Cons: dense and heavy, high price
Rating: 3 1/2 stars
