Why compromise the banana flavor? My banana bread is moist and delicious with loads of banana flavor! Ultimate comfort food, and it's WONDERFUL TOASTED!! (Make sure to use bananas with a lot of black on them for the best flavor! The blacker the bananas, the stronger the banana flavor of the bread.)
Since so many elementary schools are nut free zones, I like making these for my kids to take as wholesome snacks since taking a store bought granola bar would be considered unsafe for those around them with nut allergies. We all LOVE this recipe! Enjoy!
This is comfort food at its finest. I love it hot, I love it warm, but I absolutely adore it ice-cold from the refrigerator. Personally, I think it belongs in it's own food group. But perhaps I'm biased. :D Hmmm, I think I might need to go make some tapioca pudding after posting this recipe... DH loves it when I make this, and I like that I don't have to fuss with soaking the tapioca overnight. I never remember to do that... (P.S. Decisions, decisions...they want to know how many servings? I suppose I should say something other than one, huh? LOL)
This chocolate treat is quick and easy to make. I don't like to sacrifice taste even when I'm watching my weight. This recipe is perfect for those times when I'm craving chocolate, but I don't want all of the extra calories. Update 9/1/08: Despite what one reviewer states, my posting of this recipe was in no way meant to "fool" you. I do cut mine in 36 pieces. It is perfect for those times when I am craving chocolate. If I can't control my cravings then I just better not make them. Weight Watchers, or any diet, is about portion control and nothing is going to be low-fat or good for you if you eat too much of it.
I wanted cornbread for dinner and was having a hard time finding a good low fat recipe. Many included corn kernels and my family won't eat that in cornbread! I came across this one in a Weight Watchers cookbook, though this recipe was listed in order for you to make it to use in cornbread stuffing. Therefore I was worried that it would not be good to eat on its own. But it was tasty! And it does not have the funny consistency that some fat free baked goods do. It makes 12 servings and each serving is only 2 WW points!
This fabulous dessert is 3 WW points a serving and can be made with fresh, canned, or frozen fruit. It is adapted from a recipe in the "More With Less Cookbook." Incredibly easy to make, I fall back on this when unexpected company comes for dinner.
This is a recipe I clipped from a Woman's Day magazine way back in 1980. I didn't try it for many years but when reviewing my files in search of low fat recipes for a family member I came across this one. Not a fancy cake but homey and good! I have also make this with fresh peaches with good results.
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.
