Need a Thanksgiving dessert recipe that’s simple and cheap to make? For just 100-calories per serving, this healthy option is what I’m planning to bring to my moms. PS. This recipe is super easy to make gluten-free if you omit the graham cracker bottom. It’s also pretty easy to make vegan, to boot!
my lovely breakfast today: 1/2 cup oats, 1/2 small banana, 1 cup water and 1 tbs Chocolate Covered Katie’s pumpkin cookie dough dip! (its delicious, and sooooo addictive, but healthy, and only with 25 calories per tbs!)
total: 215 calories-and dont let the picture fool you, this bowl was HUGE
A weird-looking protein bar I made with 1 package of pre-cooked brown rice, 2 scoops of chocolate protein powder, 1 scoop of cocoa, 1 scoop of nut butter and 1 small pack of coconut milk. A bit unusual but not that bad!
I was craving cake, so I made a delicious, low-fat one! Instead of going the unhealthy route, I made a sponge cake. This is MY own photo of my delicious 135 calorie (per slice!) creation that yielded me 11 slices of heaven! The recipe is from How to Cook Everything by Mark Bittman.
What you need
1 Cup Flour (unbleached in my case!)
3/4 tsp Salt
5 Eggs, separated
1 Cup Sugar
2 tablespoons of grated lemon/lemon zest
1 table spoon of lemon juice (fresh if possible!)
What to do
Spray a 9by5 inch loaf pan with non-stick spray.
You have to beat the hell out of the yolks until it’s super foam-esque. Then add half of the sugar, then beat it more. Then add the zest, lemon juice, flour and salt to this.
Then, beat the egg whites (separately) until they become fluffy, foamy cloud-like things. Add half of the sugar, and beat it some more.
Add the egg white mixture into the yolk/flour mixture slowly with a rubber spatula. Fold it into the rest GENTLY and make sure the mixture still looks foam-like. Not too much mixing. Put into the loaf pan.
Bake on 350 for 40-50minutes. Let cool, cut and eat!
Number of Servings: 11 delicious slices.
Nutrition per slice:
This is just like a that creamy fruit salad at the grocery store that looks so good, but so full of sugar! Only…this has no sugar ;) And it’s full of protein. At only 110 calories, this is a SUPER HEALTHY dessert snack.
