Whole-Wheat Pita Chips
Very Good 4.4/5
(12 ratings)

Who needs deep-fried chips, when pitas crisp up so perfectly with minimal added oil? Pair these with hummus or as a crunchy side to your Greek salad.

Sweet and Spicy Nuts
Very Good 4.4/5
(24 ratings)

These are addictive. They're sweet, salty, spicy, and crunchy. Cut back on the sriracha/chili flakes to tame these fiery nuts. Use smoked (not hot or sweet) paprika.

Vegetable-Packed Guacamole
Very Good 4.5/5
(64 ratings)

My favorite Mexican restaurant serves a guacamole that's heavy on vegetables--and flavor. To slim it down even more, serve with carrots, celery and cucumber slices.

Incredible! 5.0/5
(1 rating)

Low in sugar and with just a hint of chocolate, enjoy this chewy goodness for only 150 calories per bar!

Still experimenting with this recipe I created to get the perfect combo of PB and chocolate. (This variation has very little chocolate flavor.) I'll keep working with it and edit the recipe once I get the ratio just right.

Raspberry-Lemon Scones
Very Good 4.0/5
(50 ratings)

Scones are perfect for weekend house guests, hostess gifts, or picnics. Traditionally made with loads of butter and cream, mine use far less butter--and wheat flour.
