These muffins are a blessing for people restricted to low-fat foods, there is only about 1 gram of fat in each muffin, these muffins do not at all taste low-fat! This recipe will make 36 muffins, so just pop them into the freezer for a fat-free snack or for breakfast! If desired add in chopped nuts although that will add to the fat content, You can use egg beaters in place of eggs and white sugar in place of brown or use half of each.
An absolutely delicious done-in-a-snap snack, or breakfast treat (if you double/triple the recipe) that's as much fun to make as it is to eat! You end up with a slice with pretty, circular patterns, that's soft and sweet on the top, and crisp at the bottom!
My friend emailed this recipe to me as a quick, easy, no eggs/no milk dessert. It doesn't have to be for breakfast at all. The original recipe called for Cherry filling, but I prefer to use Blackberry filling. I changed the name to "Berry" because you could use any you wish. Enjoy!
I based this recipe off kzbhansen's recipe #130244. While these are a huge hit with the family, with over 30 g of fat they don't really fit into the healthier lifestyle we are aiming for. This lighter version checks in at only 3 WW points. The vegetables can be exchanged however you like with minimal impact on the points value. I suggest trying mushrooms, peppers or tomatoes in the empanadas.
From Hungry Girl. I love her healthy twists on some of my naughty favorite foods! I haven't tried this one yet, but it sounds fabulous!
UPDATE! We had these for dinner last night and they were AMAZING! It really is important to get the squash as dry as possible - otherwise you'll get mushy hashbrowns! :) Also, the squash cooks down quite a bit, so next time I'll double the recipe since we know we like it now! UPDATE #2: Here's how I prepared the shredded squash. If anyone has a better method, let me know! (This wasn't part of the original recipe from Hungry Girl.) I cut the uncooked squash into 4 large "chunks", and then removed the seeds and shell. I shredded the squash using the "big" side of a box grater. If the "chunks" were too large to manage, I cut them into smaller pieces. (Hope that helps!)
I got this recipe from the WW Annual Recipes for Success 2003. They are wonderful. I top mine with a dollop of light cool whip and they are tasty. 4 points for 2 hotcakes. Great change for the morning meals.
You could also add in a couple small mashed bananas if desired, if you are using syrup in place of brown sugar then use only pancake syrup not maple syrup and add it in with the wet ingredients, servings are only estimated.
