This was a gift from my mother for Christmas - both the recipe and a canister of the mix. It's delicious, good with skim milk added. I don't know where the recipe originated, but it's a lifesaver for me 'cause I LOVE hot chocolate!Submitted by RIATHA82
This dessert is to die for and can be made with so many different flavors. Try chocolate, vanilla, pistachio—the sky's the limit! Plus, it has 19 grams of protein in just one serving!Submitted by CHERRYDOLL
While sugar may play a necessary role in some baked goods because of chemical reactions that result in the proper texture, rising, et cetera, quick breads are a wonderful category of sweets for which the complete substitution of a low-calorie sweetener such as Splenda is not only completely acceptable from a baking standpoint, but for taste as well.
Splenda is not truly calorie free; there are approximately 2 calories per teaspoon (compared to 15 calories per teaspoon of sugar!), so when utilizing in baked goods be sure to add 97 calories per cup of Splenda if you are concerned with accurate nutrition info. If you are not yet brave enough to try for a complete substitution, feel free to try the recipe with the Splenda Baking Blend (half sugar and half splenda), but it is worth trying the entire recipe with Splenda to see just how delicious "guiltless" baking can be!
This recipe is also included in the "guiltless" category because it is virtually fat free! The use of applesauce in quick breads in lieu of oil is not only heart healthy and MUCH lower in calorie (its use saves about 60 calories per half-inch slice!), but it results in a tender, sweet quickbread.
I've kept the whole eggs in this recipe instead of using an egg substitute or egg whites, as the caloric value difference is only about 5 calories per slice and I find that the yolks are a necessary binding ingredient. If you are concerned with cholesterol (and the recipe as written only has about 20 grams per slice) try it with egg whites or egg substitute (3/4 cup) and let us know how it goes!

I love apple pie, deep dish apple pie, Dutch Apple pie and apple sauce, but none of the store bought items fit in my diet. So, I made a combination of all of them only without the sugar, starch or fat. I love my apples this way and have already shared the receipt with many friends. The picture shows the apple mixture on top of Eggo Waffles and fat free cream cheese, My favorite Sunday Brunch.Submitted by HARRINGTON5
This is just a trial I will update after I try it. FYI...I have little pans...Make twice as much for 9 inch pan. I use small round pyrex to make individual cakes. It only took about 30 minutes to cook it that way.
I tried it now!
FABULOUS!!!Submitted by AMBERMONKEY
Heres a little recipe I worked out, and Sweet Potatoes are full of vitamin A! These sweet potato or yam muffins have less than 100 calories each and less than a half a gram of fat each! They come out to just under 1 gram of sugar each, but i use no sugar in them so these are naturally occuring. By the way no these are not "mini-muffins"! Feel free to use regular muffins tins like I did... They are a great harmless snack or breakfast addition. To get your vitamin A be sure to pair it with a healthy dietary fat (we need fat to absorb the A) - breakfast with 1 ounce of reduced fat cheese and a piece of fruit is great! So low cal you can mix and match often- and made with whole wheat flour- so you are getting your healthy whole grains and their awesome antioxidants! Enjoy!
*Don't be scared of the prep time- its just for boiling sweet potatoes. I forgot to add the temperature before but I included it now: 425 F. (its in the recipe text now too) Let them cool completely! Even chilled in the fridge helps them to "set". Submitted by LIFEHASCHANGES
