Apple berry cobbler Simply Filling

Loved this! The husband said it was amazing :)

Apple berry cobbler simply filling
This made 2 ramekins each was 1 portion

I took the blueberry scone recipe and omitted the blueberries and put it on top of apple/berries :)

1 small apple chopped smallish so they'd cook faster
8 frozen strawberries
1/3c leftover sugar free cranberry sauce

I put them all in a small pan. Of course you could use any berries you have on hand. Heated them until the strawberries were thawed and the apple starting to cook.

Divide between to ramekin dishes mine are the 1 cup size.

I then made this blueberry scone recipe but left out the blueberries. I took 1/3 of the recipe out and divided it between the ramekins and baked in a 350 oven for 25 minutes.

Then I added a few frozen blueberries to the rest of the recipe and poured it into a small glass baking dish to make 4 blueberry scones for later :)

Pineapple upside down pancakes simply filling

Oh my these taste great!

Pineapple upside down pancakes simply filling

1/2c quick oats uncooked
1/2 tsp baking powder
sweetener to taste 1-2 packets
2-3 slices of canned pineapple depends on how many pancakes you make blot them with a paper towel so the're not too wet
1/4c light yogurt sugar free I used vanilla
1 egg or 1/4 egg substitute or 2 egg whites whichever you prefer I used 1 egg today
1/2 tbsp brown sugar 0pp

Mix everything except pineapple and brown sugar in a bullet or use a stick blender. Let sit a couple of minutes as it gets thicker when you wait a few minutes.

You can make 2 - 3 pancakes depending on the size :) I made 2 today.

Pour 1/3- 1/2 of the batter in a non stick sprayed heated pan. Now put 1 of the pineapple rings on top.

There are 2 ways to finish them.
1. you can spread some of the brown sugar on top. Give the tops a quick spray with non stick and turn over after the bottom half has browned. Cook until browned then very carefully, because the sugar makes them sticky, turn over.
2. don't put the brown sugar on yet. Turn over and when cooked put them on a baking sheet, sprinkle the pineapple tops with the brown sugar and put under broiler for a minute or two or until browned. I haven't tried this method but it should work fine.

I used #1 method. Even if they don't turn over perfectly they taste divine :)

I topped my with a drizzle of 1 Tbsp of sugar free pancake syrup.

Berry whip Simply Filling

Berry whip Simply Filling 2 servings or 1/3 for me and 2/3 for the hubs which is how it went today :)

1c frozen fruit of your choice today I made strawberry but I also love blueberry or cherry
1c fat free cottage cheese
drizzle of skim milk if needed

That's it!
Put the frozen fruit it first followed by the cottage cheese.
I just put this in my nutri bullet and whip it. If it's hard to get it started add a little skim milk.

This tastes just like cool whip and berries :) You can add a little sweetener if the fruit isn't very sweet.

Slow cooker pumpkin cheesecake 5pp


I won't copy out the whole recipe again so go HERE to find the recipe for this pumpkin cheesecake.

The only thing I did differently was because of the size of my slow cooker I put water in the bottom then I have a glass round baking dish that fits perfect and stays on top so that what I used and it came out great.

1/8 of the whole thing is just 5pp which is fantastic for cheesecake. I served it with some light whipped cream 0pp and 1 tsp real maple syrup 0pp :)

The first slice was a pain to get out but after that it was easy sailing!

Stuffing Simply Filling + 1pp

I tried Weight Watchers Girl stuffing today. One problem is that we don't get the sausage crumbles. So what's a Canadian to do?? I was going to use lilydale turkey breakfast sausage because they're 1pp each but they didn't have any!!! BUT President's Choice Blue Menu original pork breakfast sausage is only 1pp/sausage or 2pp/2 sausages or 3pp/3 sausages. Call me a happy camper :) So I used 7 which only adds 1pp/serving. I also used my Ezekiel bread which is SF rather than the light because it is denser and I thought it would be more filling. Oh and the original recipe from Weight Watcher girl is 2pp/serving for those counting points using light bread.

Stuffing Simply Filling + 1pp/serving for the sausage
6 slices of Ezekiel bread which is SF in Canada or 8 slices of light bread left out overnight to dry
5 Tbsp egg substitute
2 Tbsp of Becel reduced calorie pro active margarine which when divided between servings is 0pp
1 tsp salt
2 tsp poultry seasoning
7 president's choice blue menu original pork breakfast sausage without the casings cooked and crumbled
black pepper to taste
1 and 1/2 cup of fat free chicken broth
2 cups of diced celery
1 and 1/2 cups of diced onions

I used a 9x13 baking dish. Sprayed with non stick spray.

Preheat oven to 350

Break the bread into cubes.

Put your celery, onions, salt and pepper, poultry seasoning and broth in a small pot and bring to boil. Simmer on medium for about 10 minutes.

Take off of the stove and add the sausage, egg substitute and light margarine.

Pour the entire mixture over the bread and mix until all the bread is covered and moist. If it's a heavier bread like Ezekiel make sure to get all the bread moist. Add a bit more broth if you need to.

Bake covered with aluminum foil for 10 minutes.

Remove the foil and bake for an additional 20 minutes or until tops lightly brown.

Fluff mixture with fork.

Serve.

Makes 6 servings Simply Filling plus 1pp

I think next time I'll leave out the sausage and keep it SF for me the sausage didn't really add much to it.

I also think next time I may stuff them into a muffin pan to make individual ones :)
