Banana Split Simply Filling

I love having this for breakfast it feels like I'm having something so decadent yet it's still very healthy for you!

Would be fun with kids choosing their own toppings

Banana split:
banana, strawberries, 0% Vanilla Greek yogurt, Ezekiel cereal, 4g chocolate chips 0pp and a drizzle of sugar free chocolate syrup 0pp = Simply Filling

Sometimes I chop up a fiber one brownie to put on top but I wanted to keep this to simply filling + 0pp

Individual pumpkin pie simply filling or 0pp

Thanks to Jennie's journey of faith for this recipe.

Individual pumpkin pie simply filling or 1pp with egg whites

1/2c pure pumpkin
3 T egg substitute or 1 egg white
1 tsp pumpkin pie spice
1-2 sweeteners depending upon how sweet you like things

Mix altogether. Pour into a non stick sprayed bowl or cup. Microwave on high for 2 minutes. I ended up putting it in 25 seconds longer as I have a weak microwave. Let cool a few minutes and optional top with fat free whipped cream. I used Greek yogurt mixed with a little sweetener and pumpkin pie spice.

Now whether you count points for the wrap/cheese would depend on which ones you use. Your choice. I counted this as simply filling.

1 egg
1/4c egg whites

2 handfuls of baby spinach which I tore up by hand while adding it in
1 tbsp finely chopped onion you could also use green onion
20g light feta cheese

Heat the oil and add the onion and lightly saute.
Add the egg and egg white stirring till cooked.
Add the spinach and the egg and lightly stir and let sit a minute to let the spinach wilt a bit.

Put mixture into the middle of a tortilla and fold.
