Sweet Potato muffins!
Very Good 4.1/5
(12 ratings)

Heres a little recipe I worked out, and Sweet Potatoes are full of vitamin A! These sweet potato or yam muffins have less than 100 calories each and less than a half a gram of fat each! They come out to just under 1 gram of sugar each, but i use no sugar in them so these are naturally occuring. By the way no these are not "mini-muffins"! Feel free to use regular muffins tins like I did... They are a great harmless snack or breakfast addition. To get your vitamin A be sure to pair it with a healthy dietary fat (we need fat to absorb the A) - breakfast with 1 ounce of reduced fat cheese and a piece of fruit is great! So low cal you can mix and match often- and made with whole wheat flour- so you are getting your healthy whole grains and their awesome antioxidants! Enjoy!
*Don't be scared of the prep time- its just for boiling sweet potatoes. I forgot to add the temperature before but I included it now: 425 F. (its in the recipe text now too) Let them cool completely! Even chilled in the fridge helps them to "set".

This recipe can be made in a slow cooker or on the stove top (set to low). If you cook it on the stove top, be sure to stir occasionally to avoid any burning on the bottom.

Also, please feel free to add more or less coconut milk, lime juice, jalapeno and herbs to suit your taste!

Ancient Grains Bread
(no ratings)

This loaf soars above the pan, and is filled with almost every grain imaginable: red and white quinoa, amaranth, flax, rye and (of course!) wheat. The crust is toothsome while the inside stays nice and tender, and the whole thing is awesome for toast!

I use 1 cup Bread flour to soften the bread - makes a better sandwich. You could use all Whole Wheat if you prefer

This is a heavy duty granola, certain to provide go-power to start your day, or carried in a baggie for a later pick-me-up. I usually serve it with soymilk or skim milk if used in lieu of commercial boxed cereal.

Very Good 4.6/5

This recipe is for 3 loaves of bread, 2 for the week and one to freeze. It is meant to be made with a stand mixer, but you don't need one. This has more good fat and fiber than most recipes.

This recipe is best for sandwiches, toast, french toast, dinner rolls, and sub rolls (adjust sizes).

This bread is dense, filling and good for you! You can add some wheat gluten to make it rise a little more and make it a little less dense.
