In 2013 year, belVita Breakfast Biscuits were a favorite at THE NIBBLE.

What makes something a favorite? We not only love it at first bite, but we continue to buy it and enjoy it on a regular basis.

belVita has expanded the concept with a new grab-and-go option, belVita Breakfast Bites. The nutritious, pre-portioned packages are portable and poppable. They’re available in two flavors, Chocolate and Mixed Berry. Each 50g package contains 230 calories, 20g of whole grain and 4g fiber.

Pair belVita Breakfast Bites with a yogurt or piece of fruit for a more complete breakfast. Or at the very least, try it instead of the not-so-good-for-you breakfast pastry, donut, bagel, etc.

Personally, we’ll stick with the larger belVita biscuits, a.k.a. cookies. But if you like to nibble, try belVita Breakfast Bites.

 

belVita Breakfast Bites are baked with high quality, wholesome and were developed to provide four 4 hours of nutritious steady energy when eaten as part of a complete breakfast. Each 50g serving (one pouch) includes:

  • 4g of fiber*
  • 20g of whole grain
  •  
    The line is certified kosher by OU. Discover more at belVitaBreakfast.com.

     
    *Contains 7-8g fat per serving, depending on flavor.

    Of course, you could simply grab the heart-shaped cookie cutter you already have, roll out cookie dough, and bake them plain. You could dip them in melted chocolate or add Valentine confetti or sprinkles.

    Or, you could yield to the temptation of whoopie pies, pick up this heart-shaped whoopie pie pan, and create memories.

    If you’re steering clear of desserts, even on Valentine’s Day, how about some heart-shaped ice cubes for your cocktail or glass of water? You can add some red food color to tint them pink.
