A delicious brownie that is healthier, but as good as it's fattier version. The secret is sweet potato and whole wheat flour, but no one will ever know... unless you tell them! I got this recipe from my Aunt.
They won't know that this raspberry coffee cake is low calorie and low fat. The only thing they will know is that you are an excellent baker and this cake is delicious. I usually do not bother with the glaze. The recipe loses nothing if you opt for a glaze free coffee cake. Enjoy! P.S. This is 3 points per slice.
This flourless peanut butter cookie recipe is excellent and so easy to make. Your kids will love it and you will too! Because this recipe contains no flour, the true taste of the peanut butter comes through loud and clear! I hope you will enjoy these cookies as much as I do!
These yummy cookies have a wonderful texture and just the right amount of chocolate chips. Just as good, if not better than, the ones full of fat and calories. One of the "Greatest Hits" in Cooking Light's June 2007 issue.
I always have a supply of frozen berries and love to make this pie. Thaw just enough to separate- could use fresh if available. Feel free to use more or less of a certain berry, as long as the total amount is around 4 cups.
The inspiration for this dessert came from a Ralph's Famous Italian Ices flavor called Coconut Raspberry Tart. My husband came home from the Italian ice stand and raved about the flavor so much, we decided to recreate the same idea in pie form. I love coconut cream pie, but the typical buttery crust and rich custard are entirely too heavy for a health-conscious diet. This version is lighter and fluffier, but most importantly, equally as delicious. The raspberry layer adds the perfect tart element to balance out the sweetness of the filling.
* PLEASE NOTE: the measurements in this recipe are for a mini 7" pie pan (serves 4). For a standard 9" pie pan, simply double the recipe (serves 8).
1 gram of fat!! and it's amazing. You can also make truffles with the same base recipe. (Recipe #259042) Neff is executive chef at La Costa Resort and Spa. Nutrition info: Calories 70; Protein 2g; Total Fat 1g; Saturated Fat 0.5g; Carbohydrates 16g; Dietary Fiber 2g; Cholesterol 0mg; Sodium 90mg
These are great for breakfast over pancakes, waffles, french toast, crepes, oatmeal, etc. Or serve with low fat ice cream and toasted macadamia nuts for dessert. You can use regular tub margarine or butter in place of the cooking spray. However, this will double the cooking time, and make for a crunchier stickier outside to your banana.
This recipe is from C.A. Lynd of lyndsgourmet.com. Every year we anxiously wait for Lynd's farm to put out their peaches. They gave us this recipe with the peaches I just bought and it is simple and wonderful.
Update 9/14/2011: I have sense been diagnosed with Celiac Disease so tried the cookie using different gluten free flour mixes with great results and have altered other parts of the recipe. I have used 1 cup of Pamela’s Gluten Free Bread Mix and 1 cup of Bob Red Mill Gluten Free All Purpose Baking Flour.
This is a great starter recipe for any cookie. Whether you want a chocolate chip, peanut butter, chocolate mint, or oatmeal raisin cookie, have fun with it and put whatever extraï¿½s you feel like. The first 9 ingredients are the base for the cookie. For a more cake like cookie only add ½ cup of rolled oats or leave out the oats and add ½ cup more flour.
My husband does not like the gooey icing of German Chocolate cake, so I found this pretty slick alternative! It has all the flavors, but a very distinct "crunch", it almost caramelizes on top of the cake. Try it, I think you will be pleasantly surprised! I do not use the nuts as my husband does not like nuts in his cakes, only cookies! This is perfect for a 13x9 cake, I often use a Swiss Chocolate cake mix.
This is a great tasting cake and really looks good. It is also very easy to put together. I haven't made this cake for a long time and just ran across it in my files and thought I would share it with you. I believe I got this recipe from my sister.
This cake is pretty amazing. It's made without refined flour or sugar, but the taste and texture are sublime: it's not heavy at all. Besides that, there are plenty of carrots, nuts, and pineapple mixed in. Carrot cake is one of my favorites, and it's even better when I can actually feel good about eating it! :-) Frost with a cream cheese frosting (spreading apricot preserves between the two layers is good too). Prep time does not include grating carrots.
If there are two recipes that should be included in any list of home cooking comfort foods it would oatmeal cookies and banana bread. So, why not combine the two? This is also a good way to take those slightly overripe bananas and turn them from trash to treasure.
