Recipes I've Shared:

Fruit and Coco-nutty Muffins

Made up this recipe on a whim for my kids who suddenly wanted muffins when there were no muffins to be had.

Sneaky Chef Cinnamon Raisin Breakfast Cookies

A sneaky way to get kids to eat their vegetables, and add a protein and fibre boost at the same time!

Amy's Low Sugar Apple Crisp

Using agave nectar in place of white sugar, you can reduce the glycemic index of this dish and the calories at the same time.

Amy's Berry Delicious French Toast

For special occasions, when you want to indulge with something special, but still healthy!

Green Monster Soup

A way to hide the vegetables and make dinner fun for the kids at the same time!

Sunday Morning Omellette

Doesn't have to be breakfast, and doesn't have to be on Sunday, but it's a delicious high-protein, low carb, low cal way to start any day!

Oatmeal Bread

Bread maker recipe

No Bake Chocolate Oatmeal Cookies

You can reduce the calories even more by using a sugar substitute.

Fudgy Chocolate Lava Cake

It's not low fat, nor low calorie, but MAN will it satisfy that chocolate craving! Very rich so a little goes a long way, but make this one when you've got plenty of mouths to make sure every last morsel disappears and so you don't eat the entire pan by yourself!


Very Good (3 ratings)
Lemon Cranberry Muffins

Can be prepared as a cake with lemon frosting, I recommend it as a filling as the berries float to the top and make such a pretty topping I don't like to cover it up with frosting. As a cake, loaf or muffins, this is a low fat, lower sugar, higher fibre alternative to traditional lemon-cranberry recipies.

Shepherd's Pie

Feed the whole family from one dish!


Incredible! (1 rating)
Low Fat, Low Sugar Chocolate Banana Muffins

The only thing used to sweeten this muffin is honey and whatever natural sugars are in the ripe bananas you use. You can adjust the level of chocolatey taste to your own liking, just remember to adjust the amount of honey accordingly (about 1/2 part honey for every 1 part of cocoa).

Cheesecake without the Cream Cheese

Can also be made in a springform pan with your own, homemade crust. Also suits a crustless variety made in oven-safe ramekins.

Cheese Bread

Easy, no-kneading required cheese bread

Blueberry Baking Batter

Whether you're making a cake, a dessert loaf, muffins, pancakes, or waffles, it doesn't matter, this is the recipe that does it all!

Corn and Potato Chowder

An easy and hearty lower-fat soup option that satisfies! If you want to reduce the sodium use reduced sodium bacon and use fresh potatoes instead of canned, but you will have to pre-cook the potatoes before the bacon and onions.

Westendgirl75's No Bake Protein Cookie Balls

It's fun to get your hands (or your kids hands!) into making this delicious protein-rich snack. A lower-calorie substitute for store-bought cookies that you have the pleasure of knowing you made them yourself! And it was EASY!

Bran muffins with raisins

Substitute whatever fruit you desire in these high-fibre, lower-sugar muffins. If you don't like the strong taste of cooking molasses, use fancy molasses or increase the sugar content.

Whole Wheat Waffles

A delicious alternative to oatmeal! You could sub out the oil for applesauce and only use egg white if you want to reduce the fat content, but at 140 calories and 4g of fat each, you don't really 'need' to! (25% of calories from fat)

Low Fat Low Cal Pumpkin Raisin Muffins

Less than 100 calories and 1g of fat each these muffins are packed with vitamins and fibre. Enjoy one as a light snack, or two for breakfast. Whatever you do, don't miss out on these!

Curried Sweet Potato Soup

All fresh ingredients, no shortcuts. Not-so plain and simply delicious and good for you too!

Quesedillas

As a snack or a meal, this taste is sure to please!
