The Top Your VitaTop Recipe Contest (and Giveaway!)

Note: This post is sponsored by Vitalicious. Use my code RonisWeigh for 10% off an Vitalicious order!

What’s the saying? I’d forget my head if it wasn’t attached? That’s how I’ve been feeling lately. How did I do this while working full time? Seriously? Maybe it’s the holidays combined with the pregnancy, who knows. I’m not into making excusing for myself but seriously… I’m so scatterbrained anymore!

I was suppose to post the entries in my VitaTop Recipe contest LAST Wednesday. Better late the never I’d suppose but man I HATE missing deadlines.

As a reminder the prizes include…

  • 1st place will have their recipe showcased on Vitalicious site plus a 6 month membership (that’s worth $180!)
  • 2nd place will receive a 3 month membership and
  • 3rd place will get a sample pack of Assorted Vitalicious Products

Now onto to the voting! I love that winner selection is left up to you. I’m tired of all that pressure. ;)

Here are the entries, voting takes place below.

CranBran VitaTop Stuffing by Arlene

CranBran VitaTop Stuffing by Arlene

  • 1 teaspoon olive oil
  • 2 Tablespoons finely chopped onion
  • 1/2 cup diced zucchini
  • 1 Tablespoon Craisins
  • 2 small slices pumpernickel bread
  • 1 thawed CranBran VitaTop
  • 1/2 cup chicken broth

Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.

Heat oil in small skillet. Sautee onion and zucchini about 5 minutes, until soft. Add Craisins and cook another minute or so.

While the veggies cook, tear bread and muffin into bite-sized pieces. Turn off heat and add to skillet. Add chicken broth and stir until moistened.

Put into small baking dish and bake 20 minutes. (I think it might have benefitted from another 10 or so in the oven, but I was running out of time on my dinner break).

New England Breakfast Stacker by Kate

New England Breakfast Stacker by Kate

  • 1 Golden Corn VitaTop
  • 1 tbsp real maple syrup (reserve half)
  • 1 tbsp bacon bits (such as Hormel Real Bacon Bits) (reserve a pinch)
  • 1 large egg
  • cooking spray

Makes one serving (249 calories, 8.5g fat, 10g fiber) (5 ww)

1. Thaw Golden Corn VitaTop according to directions and toast to taste.

2. While the VitaTop toasts, spray skillet with cooking spray and heat over medium/high heat.

3. Beat together the egg and the bacon bits, reserving a pinch for garnish and pour into skillet. As the egg cooks fold it over on itself so it will fit on top of the VitaTop. Cook until the eggs are not runny.

4. When the VitaTop is done toasting, prick the top with a fork all over and drizzle 1/2 of the maple syrup over the top. Do this slowly so it can sink into the holes. Reserve the rest to pour on at the end.

5. Top the syrup soaked VitaTop with the egg. Drizzle the reserved syrup over the top and sprinkle with the reserved bacon bits.
Then enjoy! :) The whole process takes just 10-15 minutes and is simple enough to cook on a weekday morning. To reduce the calories and fat consider using two egg whites in place of the egg.

Sinfully Simple Light Peanut Butter VitaTop Icing by Patty

Microwave for a few seconds (time will vary depending on microwave), to soften. Stir to combine and spread on warm Deep Chocolate VitaTop.

I used regular peanut butter, substituting low fat is always an option. I could also see this being delicious with almond butter!

VitaTop french Toast By Gracie

VitaTop french Toast By Gracie

To make this particular treat, I microwaved a frozen Golden Corn VitaTop for 25 seconds. Then I soaked it for a couple of minutes in a mixture of:

  • 1 egg
  • 1 tbsp almond milk
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 tsp cinnamon

Cook the VitaTop for 2-3 minutes per side on a stovetop pan or griddle (medium heat). I topped it simply with butter.

I’d love to hear your story or thoughts on mine.

However, to prevent the massive amounts of spam I was receiving I have turned off comments on any post older than 5 days old. If you'd like to leave me a note regarding this post or anything really try me on twitter (@RoniNoone,) my Facebook page, or even IG (@RoniNoone) I'm so sorry for the inconvenience. I never thought I'd have to do this but it's gotten way out of hand and comment management has become simply too time consuming to manage.
