Thanks to one of our Zumbaettes, I found these lovely treats!!!!

The Alternative Bagel and The Alternative English Muffin

These can be found in the refrigerated section of your local grocery store near the cream cheese. They are very low in calories and are a perfect match to peanut butter!!! I eat these in the morning with an egg white and canadian bacon. DELICIOUS!!!

I highly recommend them!
