Was looking for good recipes that utilized canned beans and came up with this one.
Excellent recipe made with either Ground Beef or Ground Turkey depending on sales or availability. Could add corn but that would change nutrition facts.
Magic Muffin recipe with added apples and cinnamon. Can also substitute and add a ripe banana and some cinnamon and walnuts for a Banana nut version, or leave the apples and cinnamon out for the classic version. (nutrition facts will vary)
Recipes from Starkist website using Tuna Creations Zesty Lemon Pepper tuna.
I took a basic muffin mix and amped it up with some protein and a fun crumb topping. These aren't the healthiest but they certainly pack some fiber and a bit of protein.
If your into experimenting I'd love to hear how you are able to cut the calories. I will try this with apple sauce instead of oil soon to greatly reduce the fat.
A easy take on a homestyle classic. Not all the best for you health wise due to the biscuits but a yummy treat just the same.

Copied off the internet. Recipe is originally for one serving but I think it is better suited to 4 small side servings. Am making as a side to the wonderful Sesame Chicken recipe found here on SP.

I saw this recipe on a TV show on TLC and thought it would be divine. I altered it to be a bit better for you (i.e. reduced butter). You can make it with or without the cajun seasonings and it will still be full of flavor from the butter and other seasonings.
This dessert is surprisingly easy and quick but tastes great.
Reduce calories by using a reduced fat peanut butter, sugar free pudding and fat free milk. I will next time; this is just what I had on hand this time.
Betty Crocker's cake recipe using reduced/fat free ingredients and replacing oil with apple sauce to further reduce fat/calories.
Easy, Quick Pudding Pie. I used 1 box Sugar Free pudding and 1 box regular but you could reduce calories (about 25 per serving) by using two boxes of sugar free pudding.
This recipe is from the cookbook "Healthy Meals for Less", page 73.
Should make 6 half cup servings.
Recipe is from Kraftfoods.com but I made a few variations to it to reduce calories. For the original recipe search Kraftfoods.com for the above title.
Also, you have to use the Smart Taste pasta for the nutrition facts to come out correctly since this pasta has added fiber.
Recipe is from Kraftfoods.com only my variation includes sugar free jello and lite cool whip. You could also reduce calories further by using a lighter ice cream version.
Jello Poke Cake made with Raspberry Jello and topped with Cool Whip Lite. Cake is made with 1/3 cup apple sauce instead of oil and uses 3 egg whites.
Basic nut and candy trail mix.
Adapted Recipe from Pillsbury.com.
