We love cornbread, but a lot of recipes are either too dry or too high in fat for my liking. I played around with one of our favorite recipes to try and come up with a balance between the two. I was pleased with the results. The family loves the cornbread, and I can eat it guilt free!
A great choice for breakfast on the run, but also good with a relaxing cup of coffee.Originally from Weight Watchers, I've tweaked the recipe to suit my taste. 1 cookie = 2 points (If you omit the walnuts, they are 1 point each.)
I learned this seasoning trick from a restaurant chef. It really improves the flavor but keeps the green beans healthier than adding a lot of butter to them. I have never liked green beans but I love them prepared this way. My kids do too!
From a grocery store flier for National Dairy Month. Cook time is the refrigeration time. When I made mine, I made the mistake of using a blended yogurt and very little separated out. It still tasted good, but next time I'll make sure I pick a brand that separates better.
Another way to use your Amish Friendship Bread Starter. If you don't have starter, use Recipe #153 to start the process. You can add a simple glaze of 1/2 cup confectioner's sugar mixed with 1-2 Tbls. of milk, or you can leave it plain. Can be used as a dessert or coffeecake.
In response to the 1-star reviews: I'm not sure why people are having problems with the recipe. It is just an adaptation of Recipe #60676. I've made it numerous times without any problems (as you can see in the photos). There isn't any added sugar because the sugar is in the starter.
These are good, just not as moist as I was hoping for. The next time I make them, I'm going to try cutting the sugar back to 1/2 cup and using a 1/4 cup of unsweetened apple in place of the 2 Tbls. of butter to see if they would be moister that way. 1 muffin = 3 points as written. With the changes mentioned above, 1 muffin = 2 points.
I've been craving Chinese food but didn't want takeout because it is so high in calories. I found this on the WW site and thought I'd give it a try. It was a bit spicy using the 1/2 tsp. of red pepper flakes, so you might want to use less if you don't like spicy. We all thought it would have been better with a mix of veggies (broccoli, snow peas, baby corn etc.) rather than all carrots. Prepared as written, each serving is 7 points.
Guilt free and delicious! What's not to love?? It really complements a salad of spinach, blue cheese, dried cranberries, and oranges. But I'm sure it would be good on any salad you usually put Raspberry Vinaigrette on.
A refreshing fruit salad that is especially good at breakfast. If you prep it the evening before, don't add the mint until morning or it just kind of bitter. Yes, I learned that the hard way. ;) 1 WW point per serving.
In an effort to eat healthier, I modified a family favorite so we could still enjoy it. The rest of the family couldn't even tell the difference! ;) My changes cut the calories by over 220 per serving (based on 6 servings) and the fat by over 50%!!! If you make it as written, 1/6 = 6 pts WW or 1/8 = 5 pts WW
I needed to make some cookies that wouldn't interfere with my trying to cut back on my fat intake. A friend passed on this recipe which she said was from Weight Watchers. If you make 40 cookies, it is 1 point each (I'm not sure what the Points Plus Value is). And yes, they are small cookies, but very fudgy and delicious!
My husband's great aunt taught me how to make this as it is my hubby's favorite meal. It is one of those things that I cook by eyeballing the ingredients but someone requested I post it so the amounts are guesstimates with instructions on what the mixture should look like. Serve with mashed potatoes and Recipe #268494.
