Skinny peanut butter chocolate chips cookies

This is the one people always want the recipe to :O)

I have to warn you though, a skinny cookie isn’t necessarily the lowest in calories, just much better than the alternative. It’s still definitely dessert, but I’ll show you the comparison to the normal recipe at the end

*1/2 cup mashed banana
*1/2 cup peanut butter
*1/2 cup splenda (or for an extra 15ish calories per cookie you can do half splenda, half sugar)
*1/4 cup packed splenda brown sugar blend ( you can buy this at the store)
*1/2 tsp baking soda
*1/2 tsp baking powder
*2 egg whites
*1 tsp vanilla
*3/4 cup whole wheat flour
*1/2 cup lame-o white flour (you can use all whole wheat, it just gets pretty dense)
*3/4 cup dark chocolate chips

In a large mixing bowl, beat the banana and peanut butter. Add the splenda, brown sugar, baking soda and baking powder. Mix until combined, scraping the sides of the bowl occasionally. Beat in the eggs and vanilla until combined. Beat in as much of the flour as you can with the mixer. Stir in the remaining flour. Stir in chocolate chips. Cover and refrigerate for approx 1 hour. Preheat oven to 375. Shape dough into 1 inch balls and place on ungreased cookie sheet. Use a fork to flatten if you prefer (I usually just leave them and they come out as super cute little balls–when you use splenda they don’t really flatten on their own). Now here’s the thing, the recipe I adapted says to cook them for 7-9 min. I usually cook them for about 5. I take them out just as they are barely set and the bottoms are just starting to crisp, then I let them sit and finish cooking themselves and they come out yummy and gooey the way I like them, but some people (weirdos) prefer a crisper cookie and if so you can cook it longer.

Pre-gym power breakfast

This is one of my favorite things to make in the morning before the gym because it’s filling, but not heavy with protein and fiber! Yum!

Veggie servings are approximate and can be changed to whatever you want :O)

*1/4 cup sliced yellow onion
*1/2 zuccini or squash
*1/2 cup broccoli
*1/2 cup sliced mushrooms
*1/2 cup bell pepper
*1/4 cup reduced sodium black beans
*1-2 tablespoons minced garlic
*1/4 cup spinach
*1 wedge laughing cow lite cheese (garlic herb or sun dried tomato tastes best)
*1-2 tablespoons shredded fat free cheddar cheese
*1 whole egg + 1 white
*Black pepper, red pepper, seasoning salt, cilantro and chalulah to taste
*Olive oil spray

Spray a big sautee pan with the olive oil spray, add veggies (except spinach and beans), add garlic, cilantro and seasonings, spray liberally with more olive oil spray, sautee until they get how you like them (I usually end up covering them and cooking them at about a 3 so they don’t dry out), add beans, laughing cow and spinach, meanwhile cook eggs how you like them (I do over easy) in a separate pan, when everything is just about ready, top the veggie mix with cheddar cheese, put in a big bowl, top with eggs and chalulah.

*Note-you have to really stir around the laughing cow to get it to spread and mix evenly otherwise you will end up with a huge chunk somewhere in the middle of your veggies.

185 calories, about 20 grams of protein and 10 grams of fiber! Totally gets me ready for my fight against back fat! HiiiiiYA!

Skinnified chicken quesedilla

Just a note–I don’t count veggies. In my book, they’re free so all of my calorie info is excluding veggies.

I just made this for lunch and thought it was pretty delicious :O)

*1 large low carb whole wheat tortilla
*1 wedge laughing cow (the mexi queso light one)
*2 tbs reduced fat shredded mexi cheese
*3 oz shredded or sliced chicken breast
*chopped yellow onion (however much you like)
*chopped red bell pepper
*cilantro leaves
*1 tbs fat free sour cream

So easy. Preheat the oven to 350, spread the laughing cow over half the tortilla, top with chicken, cheese, veggies and cilantro to taste. Fold and put in the oven flipping when the top gets to your preferred crispiness. When both sides look good to you and the cheese is melty, remove from the oven and spread sour cream on top.

225 calories plus lots of protein and fiber!
