Susie's Honey Maple Cookies
Very Good 4.3/5
(12 ratings)

This is a wholesome chewy cookie that satisfies the sweet tooth, but isn't just empty calories--it's a great way to incorporate whole grains. Substitute a multi-grain mix for added nutrition and fiber. Add mini chocolate chips, raisins, nuts, or coconut for variation.

Very Good 4.5/5
(180 ratings)

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!

Good 3.0/5
(2 ratings)

I just made this tonight, and had to share! It is tasty, hearty, filling, and pretty low in fat at just 4 grams of saturated per serving. If you don't mind a little extra fat, you may want to add a bit more Smart Balance to yum up the potatoes even more :)
