Recipes I've Shared:

Fluffy Whole Wheat Bread

Whole wheat bread that is soft and light in texture.

Chocolate Almond Cranberry Cookies

A favorite variation of cake mix cookies.
For lowfat cookies, substitute unsweetened applesauce for the oil.

Buttermilk Mac & Cheese

The full-fat version is yummy, but has 6 whole eggs, 1 stick of butter, and regular cheese.
This version eliminates much of the fat but retains most of the flavor.

Ham & Cheese Mac

A custardy main dish macaroni and cheese with ham. High in protein, reduced in carbs and fat versus many mac & cheese recipes, but tastes great.

PB2 Chocolate Chip Cookies (sugar free)

Slightly cakey textured, very low fat and low sugar peanut butter chocolate chip cookies.

Sandy's Raspberry Almond Cookies

Based on the recipe from Land O'Lakes, but uses margarine for a totally different texture.

Peanut Noodles with Chicken and Vegetables

Adapted from Yahoo's Eatingwell website by replacing peanut butter with PB2.
Totally yummy!

High-Protein, Low-Sugar Chocolate Granola

Spruce up regular old granola with chocolate--and an extra 7 grams of protein! Eat it with milk, use as a topping for yogurt, or snack on it plain!

Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies

Vickie's favorite cookies

Dilly Bean Bread

The best bread you've ever tasted for a ham or turkey sandwich.

This is my adaptation of a recipe in the book Bean Cookery by Sue Deeming, ©1980. It is so good it needs to be shared. :)

Sandy's Frosted Brownies

The ultimate in rich, decadent, delishishness!
(I added them to my recipes to remind myself of the nutritional info--it's scary--makes the black bean brownies on here seem like a good option.)

Chocolate Shortcake (low sugar)

The base for a decadent dessert low in refined carbs.

Very Good (1 rating)
Banana Chocolate Chip Cake (low sugar)

A nice sweet treat for those who are watching their fats and sugars.

Vegetarian Taco Soup

I know the creamed corn sounds a little yucky, but trust me, it just thickens the soup and makes it hearty—your kids will never know it’s in there!

Incredible! (2 ratings)
Easy Eggplant Parmesan

A tasty, healthier alternative to most eggplant parmesan.
