Do you eat Vitatops? We *love* them at our house- I especially love them because they are only 1 Weight Watches point and have a great amount of fiber and keep me full all morning.

And my kids love them because they are chocolaty. They have no idea they are good for them!

But I got super-tired of paying $4.20 plus tax for a box of 4 from Target. I heard about, researched, and tried the mix they sell, and by George, it's a winner! For $15.48 (free super-saver shipping if you spend over $25 at Amazon), you get three boxes of mix, and each box makes 12 muffin tops- a total of 36 tops.

I didn't have a muffin top pan, so I ordered two of these from Amazon and have been very pleased with them- sprayed liberally with Pam, the muffin tops come right out after baking.

Some notes on using the mix: I use 3/4 cup of Eggbeaters in place of the egg and sprinkle each top with 7 chocolate chips. The baking directions on the box are a little off, so I adjust it to 350 degrees for 15 minutes and get a great result. These are easily heated in the microwave for about 20 seconds from frozen, for a quick and easy breakfast.

I have been looking for a muffin top pan because my daughter usually only eats the tops off of muffins. Thanks!
