Very Good 4.7/5

This is the most basic of the spreads. You can find a variation of this recipe in almost any grocery store, but 95 percent of them are made with either olive oil or tahini (sesame paste), which pushes up the fat content. Your best bet is to take three minutes and make a batch on Sunday that will last you for the week.

Each serving is four pancakes. I developed this recipe over time for my children. We make these every Sunday morning and they are my favorite pancakes now. I make up batches of the dry ingredients and keep them in ziplock bags.

I got the original version of this recipe from HAVASUROSE. It is so much fun to cut the oranges into 8 wedges and blenderize them WITH THE PEEL STILL ON THEM! :-) Ultra high fiber, moist if you make them a day ahead and store in an airtight container, and very good for you.

The original recipe is here: www.recipezaar.com/Whole-Orange-Cranberry-Flax-Bran-Muffins-285827

To increase the protein to calorie ratio I halved the sugar and oil, took out the nuts, swapped carbalose flour for standard flour, egg whites for whole eggs, and added a cup of defatted peanut flour. And they still taste good!

You can order carbalose flour from netrition.com and defatted (12% fat) peanut flour from byrdmill.com

I also switched to mini-muffins to make the portions more manageable.

A low calorie, low fat yummy muffin with chunks of apple. These are really sweet so you may want to decrease the amount of Splenda.

Total time: 15 minutes. Fresh mozzarella is easier to slice when it is very firm. Place mozzarella in the freezer just until firm, and thinly slice. Any brand of prebaked pizza crust will work for this recipe.

Hawaiian Pizza: 'SparkRecipes Un-Chained' Contest Finalist
Very Good 4.4/5
(77 ratings)

Pizza is one of my favorite foods, and the sweet sauce at Papa John's is my all-time favorite. My viewpoint is, if you're going to make it at home, don't make it "just as good," make it better! So I'm remaking a medium Papa John's pie with pineapple, onion and bacon(BACON!!!). Fresh homemade sauce and premium ingredients make this recipe more than worth the calories, and still trimmer than the fast food original!

This soup is so versitile. I wind up tossing in whatever vegetables I need to use up and it always tastes good. Sometimes I add a bit of hot sauce for a kick.

A serving is about a cup, just perfect to pack for lunch with a half sandwich.

Yummy vegetable soup. This makes a large quantity of soup for several meals and/or freezing.. I like to make this and eat it throughout the week for lunches and snacks. Also, there is always plenty to share with a friend's/neighbor's family.
