CLIF Bar Giveaway


Featured Ingredient: Chocolate

As a nutrition writer and mountain biker, I’ve chewed my way through no shortage of the energy bars on the market. Yeah, I know, it’s a tough gig. Some are hard to choke down, but the offerings from CLIF never fail to rouse my taste buds. Blissfully chewy and pumped full of great flavors, they are motivation enough to get out there for an epic ride. Well, I’ve been known to also nosh on them while typing away on the computer. Certainly, you could do worse for a snack option.  

So, I’ve got another great giveaway for the Muffin Tin Mania readers out there. My contact at CLIF would like to supply a lucky reader with a collection of their yummy chocolate flavors such as Chocolate Almond Fudge and Chocolate Brownie.



And this gives me the perfect opportunity to showcase these deliciously moist vegan mini chocolate muffins. So the first person who leaves a comment correctly guessing what I used for a binder in lieu of eggs (hint: it also makes these a little more fudgy) and the non-dairy beverage added for moistness (hint: it’s pretty groovy), will have some CLIF chocolate goodness delivered to their abode. Sorry Gretzky fans, U.S. residents only.
















Check back on Friday where I will announce the winner and provide the details for the recipe.

  2. Good guesses so far, but no lucky winners yet. Also, remember you need to also guess the non-dairy beverage I used.

  3. My guess is beets and coconut milk!

    (Let's just say that if I could mainline beets into my mouth I would do it.)
