All Bran Carrot Raisin 3 week muffin batter

Reminds me of my Mom's Christmas pudding - rich and moist, my family loves these. The batter can keep in the fridge for up to 3 weeks for fresh muffins whenever you want them.

cranberry orange banana nut flaxseed muffin

Don't let the fat/calories scare you, they are mostly from the Omega 3 packed flaxseed and walnuts. With 4 gr of fibre and 5 gr of Protein - this is a breakfast-worthy muffin.

Recipe can be made without the cranberries/walnuts - I just had some leftover home-made cranberry sauce from Thanksgiving and added it to the wet batter, that prompted the orange zest/juice - and the result was very yummy!

Apricot Cream Cheese Phyllo tart

These quick and easy tarts hit the spot when you are craving rich, delicious French Pastry - for under 100 cal.

Don't be afraid of frozen phyllo dough. It is remarkably easy to use and always procudes impressive results - even for beginners! For this tart , you could substitute a variety of fruit: strawberries, blueberries, canned peaches or pears. I like the apricots - they look perfectly pretty in a tart - and only 10 cal per half!

Whole Wheat Apple Cinnamon Pancakes - Under 100

A filling, hearty, tasty pancake. This is a large recipe, so I usually freeze the extras and pack them in the kid's lunches later in the week. Just slice and spread with a bit of Maple Butter. You could also half the recipie.

Basic Mixed Bean Chili with Hamburger

Basic Chili recipe - also very good without the hamburger.
Makes 13 cups; 1 serving = 1cup

Chewy Granola Energy Bars with Dried Fruit

My kids LOVE these tasty, chewy granola bars and beg me to make them. They pack well and can be easily adapted to suit your tastes. Any dried fruit can be used. I find prunes add a real richness to them, but dried apricots, peaches, cranberries, blueberries and cherries are all very nice in these. You can also add nuts, chocolate chips and/or coconut - but my family doesn't miss them in this lower calorie version.
