Cookie & Peach Parfait
- 1 jell-o sugar free vanilla pudding snack
- 2 crushed gingersnaps
- Diced peaches – ½ cup
- Fat free Reddi-whip 2 tablespoons
Take a glass or bowl and spoon half of the pudding into it and then add half of the peaches on top of the pudding. Next add half of the cookies over top of the peaches then top with the rest of the pudding, then the rest of the peaches, then the rest of the cookies and finally top it with the sugar free reddi-whip. This recipe is low in calories but a bit higher in carbohydrate content so save it for your cheat meal or a day when you will be very active and able to burn off the extra carbs. It has 158 calories, 2.5 grams fat, 33 grams of carbohydrates, 1.25 grams fiber, 13.5 grams of sugar and 2 grams of protein
Skinny Banana Pancakes
- Whole wheat flour – 1 quarter cup
- half a banana or one quarter cup of a banana – mashed
- 3 tablespoons egg substitute
- 1 tablespoon of Unsweetened almond milk
- baking powder – 1 quarter teaspoon
- vanilla extract – 1/4 teaspoon
- 1 packet of stevia
- a pinch of salt
- a pinch of cinnamon
Start by putting the flour, sweetener, baking powder, salt and cinnamon in a bowl and mix everything together nicely. Then in another bowl combine your mashed banana with the egg substitute, vanilla extract and almond milk until they are totally mixed together. Then combine all of your wet all of your dry ingredients and stir everything together so it’s totally blended together. Then take a large pan sprayed with non-stick cooking spray and pour the batter in the pan and make 5 small pancakes. Of course when your pancakes start to become solid, this usually takes about 1 minute, flip them over and cook until both sides are golden brown and just make sure that they are cooked all the way through. The combined total of these five tiny pancakes will give you 185 calories, 1 gram of fat, 37 grams of carbohydrates, 5 grams fiber, 7.5 grams of sugar and 9.5 grams of protein. This recipes is also low in calories and higher in carbohydrates so just be mindful of that. I will usually eat this when I have a long day scheduled and I need an extra dose of carbs to keep me going. Especially if know I may not have time to eat again until later in the day around dinner time. My sons love to eat this when they are lucky enough to get tickets to an Eagles game. And when there is snow on the ground this is their go to breakfast.
