Healthy banana pancakes

Tried a new to me SF pancake recipe. I'm sorry I don't where it originally came from.

This was 1/2 the recipe and I froze the other 1/2 for another day.

Simply Filling plus 1 pp for maple syrup

Peach pie overnight oatmeal

This I figured out to Simply Filling + 1pp

Peach pie overnight oatmeal

1/2c oatmeal either steel cut for crunch or rolled oats uncooked
1/2c skim milk
1 peach
2 tsp maple syrup 1pp
1 tsp chia seeds
1 tsp hemp hearts
1/2 tsp cinnamon
pinch of nutmeg

Mix all together in a jar the night before or make several for breakfasts through the week :)

I slightly changed the recipe to be simply filling and I like more peach! The original recipe is here.

Lemon vinaigrette

I made this the other day and it was a really nice change :)

Lemon vinaigrette

  • 1/3 cup olive oil
  • Juice of 1 large lemon
  • 2 tsp maple syrup or raw honey
  • 1 tsp dijon mustard
  • 1 small garlic clove minced

  • I just put all of the ingredients in a mason jar and used my stick blender.

    Lemon cranberry stuffed French toast

    I was going to make lemon raspberry stuffed French toast and realized I didn't have any raspberries!!

    So last night while I was making dinner I popped 1/2c frozen cranberries and a couple of tbsp of water plus sweetener in a glass measuring cup and put it in the microwave until the cranberries burst and it was nice and thick. Put in the fridge until tomorrow.

    Lemon cranberry stuffed French toast SF + 1pp for the cream cheese
    2 slices of ezekiel bread (I count it as SF)

    2 Tbsp light organic cream cheese (just the one I use) 1pp mixed with a little lemon zest and lemon extract and sweetener.

    Leftover cranberry sauce I make mine with splenda so it's 0pp

    1 egg plus a little skim milk, some vanilla extract and sweetener whisked together (you could use egg whites if  you like)

    1 tsp of maple syrup 0pp

    Take the 2 slices of bread and carefully dip each side in the egg mixture. Cook in a pan that has been sprayed with non stick spray or a little oil. Carefully turn when one side is brown.

    When both slices are cooked divide the cream cheese between both slices and spread the cranberry sauce on top of one and put the other slice on top.

    Serve with a tsp of real maple syrup for 0pp :)

    Hot oat bran

    Hot oat bran cereal on a cold day is amazing!

    I cooked mine in a cup of skim milk to get some dairy in.

    This is the way I make it and it never comes out lumpy.

    I put 1 cup of skim milk in a small pot and added 1/3c of quaker oat bran and a bit of sweetener to taste.
    Turn the burner on medium and keep stirring :) When it was almost thick enough I added a splash of vanilla extract and some chopped up banana leaving a bit of banana to put on top!
    When thick pour into a bowl, add leftover banana on top and today I added a tsp of sugar free chocolate chips 1pp.

    Simply Filling plus 1pp for the chocolate chips or any other add on's

    Creamy cauliflower or potato soup

    So easy and tasty!

    Creamy cauliflower soup SF add points for any additional ingredients! I added 1 light laughing cow cheese to make it creamy and 1 slice of cooked turkey bacon.

    1/2 bag of frozen cauliflower or potato if you like
    2 cups of fat free chicken broth

    Simmer these until the cauliflower is tender. I then used a hand blender to make it smoother while leaving a few lumps :).  Then I added some ground pepper, garlic and onion powder and I wedge of light laughing cow cheese (1pp). If you're using cauliflower you may want to thicken it a bit at this point with some cornstarch mixed with a bit of water then added while stirring or whatever thickener you use.

    Garnished with some green onion, 1 slice of cooked turkey bacon (1pp) and 15g of cheese. If you use fat free it would be SF.

    Instant pumpkin ice cream!

    I saw this recipe here and new I had to make it! The only change I made was to use light coconut milk. Oh and it said it made 4 servings but I made 2 :)

    1/2c light coconut milk
    1 cup pumpkin puree frozen in an ice cube tray
