Product Snapshot: Health Warrior is helping reinvigorate the healthy, on-the-go breakfast category with the launch of the Protein Mug Muffin.
The new Protein Mug Muffin is joining the company’s popular organic Pumpkin Seed bars and 100-calorie Chia Bars. This warm, spoonable, plant-based muffin is non-gmo, gluten-, soy-, and dairy-free. It is made with superfoods such as ancient grains, nuts, and seeds; has 12g of plant based protein, only 6g sugar, and is an excellent source of fiber. Ready in under a minute, the Protein Mug Muffin makes eating a clean, nutrient-filled, wholesome breakfast simple and convenient. It has the same amount of protein as greek yogurt, but less than half as much sugar. It also offers a lot more protein and a lot less sugar than instant oatmeal.
“Searching for a quick, warm, on-the-go breakfast option that had twice as much protein as sugar inspired our latest innovation,” said Health Warrior VP of marketing & innovation, Julia Wing-Larson. “We were struck by the popularity of single-serve ‘Mug Cakes’, a cake that can be made in a mug in the microwave and, also, astounded by the sky high amount of sugar in the average breakfast muffin (37g in a medium-sized blueberry muffin!); so we decided to create a low sugar, protein & fiber-filled plant-based breakfast that could be enjoyed like oatmeal and tasted like your favorite muffin.”
Each flavor, including Blueberry, Banana Nut, and Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip, is made with superfoods and has plant-based protein sourced from fava beans, pumpkin seeds, flax seeds and sorghum.
