My whole family loves these! Although they may seem small (considering the size of muffin we can get in a bakery) but we always add a helping of fruit or yogurt for breakfast. Yummy!

The first time I tried this was at Boom in University Village in Seattle. It's a lot like hummus but lower cal. They served it with home made sweet potato chips... I googled a bunch of recipes and this one looked really good, but I haven't tried it yet!

Flavorful Grilled Chicken
Incredible! 5.0/5
(4 ratings)

My husband claims this marinade makes skinless chicken breasts taste like a good cut of steak. I'm not so sure about tasting like steak, but this is deffinitely not a boring ol' slab of grilled chicken. Moist and tender with loads of flavor. They even taste good reheated the next day. Oh and the nutritional info isn't exactly acurate because you don't actually eat all of the marinade but I'm not sure how to make it acurate.
