Ines' Banana Nut Bread, or Muffins
Good 3.7/5
(3 ratings)

Adapted Ines' favorite Banana Bread recipe by changing 2 eggs to 4 egg whites; and changing the sugar to Splenda; and changing out 1 cup of white flour to whole wheat flour. Ines always baked in her bunt cake pan. I used muffin pans and made 24 servings for portion control This recipe might have originated with the Purdue Extension office.
One muffin is about 20 grams of Carbohydrates = one diabetic carb.

This is a great emergency snack. I measure out 20 cupcake portions and end up with 22 calories and 2 carbs per serving. They set up nicely. They freeze nicely. They taste great

I didn't have regular soy milk, so I used chocolate, and it turned out just fine. Also, Instead of the oil and much of the honey, I just added extra (1 C.) banana.

I developed this recipe because my kids and I both love smoothies, and I wanted one that didn't have as much sugar and fat as some of the ones in the shops.

Low fat chocolate chip banana bread
Very Good 4.7/5

This is inspired by Starbucks' low fat chocolate chip banana bread and is great with coffee! Although many of the ingredients are lower fat, the bread comes out very moist!

Instant coffee in the batter intensifies the chocolate flavor. Beating the sugar and eggs together gives the baked brownies a crackly surface.

This is best served with whole wheat fettucini. Goes well with chicken or salmon. Or simply serve as is for a meatless meal that is quite filling. Add a side of steamed broccoli and mushrooms and serve strawberries topped with whipped cream for desert.

I LOVE chicken & dumplings so when I found this I added my own spin to it and lowered the fat and calories. This is the best chicken and dumplings I've ever had which is amazing since I'm never satisfied with my cooking! You can have a full cup of this hearty comfort food for only 284 calories and 3.8 grams of fat! The sodium could be reduced if homemade biscuits are used instead of the canned biscuits, but if sodium isn't a problem this is a very fast and easy way to make chicken & dumplings!

Unchained Recipe Contest Chicken & Dumplings
Very Good 4.1/5
(37 ratings)

This is a makeover of Cracker Barrel's Chicken & Dumplings. My aunt had created the original recipe which called for 1.75 lb chicken and whole milk. It was always one of my families favorite dinners that I made once in a while on special Sundays. Recently, I decided to try a healthier version of it with lower calories, cholesterol & sodium to see if it would pass the "family test". It did! They couldn't tell the difference. The healthy version of this recipe went down 76 calories, 31mg cholosterol & 1104 mg of sodium per serving.

On a side note, I know some people who use prepackaged biscuit dough to make their dumplings to make it easier but I don't like the taste of the perservatives because it makes the whole recipe taste like it came out of can. There is nothing like homemade!

Nancy's Ol' Fashioned, Easy, Simple Chicken Soup...Un-Chained Recipe Contest!
Very Good 4.1/5
(30 ratings)

This is (a) an improvement on Corner Bakery Cafe's Mom's Chicken Noodle Soup; (b) a large pot of vitamin-rich, naturally sweet, nutritious, chicken soup that (c) is very easy to make, (d) freezes well, (e) feeds about a dozen hungry people, and (f) I make throughout the year after having and making many different variations on a theme for many years

Although it can take a little time to get the chicken off the bones, it's SO worth it! Also, if you don't want to use a whole chicken or shredding it just isn't your thing, you can use chicken parts or whole breasts instead, cut off the big chunks, and dice or shred them. They'll take less cooking time, too.

There's nothing better for you, especially when ONLY chicken soup will do! It's not ambrosia (nectar of the gods), but it's as close as I can get! I appreciate your feedback and input. Enjoy! SparkPeople rocks my world! Nancy, a/k/a KEEPITMOVING
