This is a delicious low fat cheese cake. Sometimes the top has a few cracks. The sour cream will help hide this. You can add fresh fruit or fruit pie filling on top which tastes wonderful and hides the cracks as well.
Tasty yet relatively easy on the waistline. Apple sauce replaces the usual fat to keep the cake moist. If you wanted to make it even lower calorie, you could substitute Splenda for some or all of the sugar.
This is a delicious brownie recipe I found on the IBS message boards. It's so simple to throw together, and you would never guess that it's low-fat and dairy-free! I like the brownies best when they're cool. Yum! They were originally called "Mom's Best Brownies", but I renamed them because I didn't want to imply that this was my mom's recipe!
That's right, vegan brownies that actually taste GOOD. What's more, they don't involve a bunch of ridiculous health food store ingredients and they're super quick to make. Mmmm...tasty easy moist healthy brownies. I don't know about you, but I'm sold! (And I'm not even vegan)
This recipe comes the closest to the ones that are sold in the stores. Do not substitute Splenda or other sweetner, the sugar in the recipe carmelizes as the brownies bake, making them more sticky (when I used Splenda, they felt like rubber. On the box vital wheat gluten also appears, I learned that it helps the brownies rise as the batter is rich in sugar. I figure about 1/2-1 teaspoon is enough
* I didn't have yogurt at hand but I had some milk and Jello Sugar Free Fat Free Instant Chocolate Pudding. I made the pudding according to recipe on the box and substituted it cup for cup (I omitted the baking soda because the soda is there to offset the acidity in yogurt, no yogurt= no need for soda). The brownies came out even better!
These are a great treat when you love peanut butter, but don't like all the high-fat versions of bars. They are from a book called Dr. Cookie. I find these very satisfying for a relatively low-fat peanut butter bar.
Amazingly rich and chewy, you would never know these are low fat. I have people asking me for this recipe whenever I make it. The applesauce is the secret ingredient in these delicious brownies! One suggestion I have to make them fudgier is to use a very high quality cocoa. I usually use Watkins or Epicure Selections and found a big difference from that and the kind you can buy in the store. It makes them a real dark chocolate in the middle and they are rich and chewy! This recipe also doubles well and will fit into a 9x13 pan.
