Cinnamon Roll Pudding

Posted on

Quite a while ago I posted a Gingerbread Biscotti and Chocolate Chip Dip recipe inspired by Chocolate Covered Katie. The dip is a deeelicious, protein-filled dessert made from cream cheese and, surprisingly, tofu! Well, this time around, I made a small additional tweak to the recipe and made a cinnamon roll inspired pudding. YUM. I make enough to refrigerate and have it as a treat for several days to come!

Cinnamon Roll Pudding

Ingredients:

  • 3/4 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup soft tofu
  • 1/2 cup fat free cream cheese
  • 3 packets of splenda
  • 1 tbs splenda brown sugar
  • 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon

Directions:

  1. Blend all ingredients together in a food processor or blender until smooth.
  2. Refrigerate for a few hours for a nice thick consistency.

Triple Chocolate Pancakes

Posted on

I must warn you.. these pancakes are insanely delicious. Not delicious as far as the Dukan Diet goes. Not delicious as far as any diet goes. Just DELICIOUS.

Why triple chocolate? Well, the reasons are three-fold: 1) chocolate soy milk, 2) cocoa powder, 3) sugar-free chocolate sauce. So, yes.. it is truly a triple chocolate dessert!

Triple Chocolate Pancakes

Ingredients:

  • 4.5 tbs oat bran
  • 1/4 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tbs cocoa powder
  • 1 packet splenda
  • pinch of salt
  • 1 egg
  • 4 tbs low-fat chocolate soy milk
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 2 tbs Walden Farms chocolate syrup

Directions:

  1. In a blender, food processor, or coffee grinder, process the oat bran to a powdery, flour-like consistency.
  2. Pour oat bran into a bowl along with the baking powder, cocoa powder, splenda, and salt and mix.
  3. In a separate bowl, whisk together egg, soy milk, and vanilla extract.
  4. Add dry mixture into the wet mixture and mix well.
  5. Heat a pan on medium-low heat with cooking spray.
  6. Pour in 1/3 to 1/2 of the pancake mixture. Cook for 1-2 minutes until bubbles form and edges begin crisping.
  7. Top with cooking spray, flip, and cook for another 1-2 minutes.
  8. Serve pancakes with chocolate sauce.

Flourless Cinnamon Bun

Posted on

Tonight is Bob’s softball night. So, left to my own device, I completely wrecked our kitchen in the process of testing out some dessert recipes. Luckily, the disaster was not made in vain as I was able to cook up an easy, fat free, flourless, no-bake cinnamon bun recipe — yes, if it didn’t exist before, now it does!!

..Hopefully if I give Bob a piece of the cinnamon bun, he won’t be too upset about the tornado that hit our kitchen ;)

Flourless Cinnamon Bun

  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/4 tsp ground cinnamon

Directions:

  2. Microwave for 30 seconds.

Cream Cheese Frosting

Ingredients:

  • 2 tbs fat free cream cheese
  • 2 tbs skim milk
  • 1 tbs fat free half & half

Strawberry Shortcake Trifle

Posted on

Happy Fourth of July everyone! Well, it’s pretty much over now but I hope everyone had a great, relaxing holiday. I went to my bosses’ barbeque today and had a great time with them and their family. They are just genuinely kind people and I have tons of laughs when I’m around them. My boss even made Bob and I a fat free dessert dip in consideration of our diet! It was a simple mixture of fat free sour cream, fat free cream cheese, and sugar/splenda. It was deeelicious!

Now I’m home and comforting Crouton through the loud sounds of fireworks and am on to my next dessert of the day: Strawberry Shortcake Trifle. Okay.. so it’s not exactly a shortcake but it’s served with a nice sweet bread. The layers consist of strawberry jello, vanilla pudding, and topped with fat free cool whip. *Warning* vanilla pudding and cool whip are both not allowed in the first two phases of the Dukan Diet. My personal rule is that if it’s fat free and low carb, it’s okay in my book. I’ve never had a problem losing weight eating these things so, once again, do what works for you! And for those of you not on the Dukan Diet, this dessert is definitely a winner because it’s (minus the cooking spray) completely FAT FREE!

Strawberry Shortcake Trifle

Ingredients:

  • 1/4 pack strawberry lite jello mix
  • 1/2 pack fat free vanilla pudding mix
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 & 1/4 cup skim milk
  • 1/2 cup corn starch
  • 2 tbs fat free cream cheese
  • 3 packets splenda
  • dash of salt
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1 cup fat free cool whip

Directions:

  1. Prepare the jello and pudding the night before to allow both to set. Pour the jello into the cup/bowl you plan on serving the dessert in.
  2. Preheat oven 425 degrees F.
  3. Make the sweet bread by combining the corn starch, splenda, salt, baking powder, and cream cheese.
  4. Use your hands to mix the ingredients together until a crumbly texture forms.
  5. Whisk milk in until smooth.
  6. Spoon 4 rounds of mix onto a parchment paper lined baking sheet. Spray top of cookies with cooking spray.
  7. Bake for 15 minutes.
  8. In the cup/bowl where you have the set strawberry jello, spoon an even layer of pudding over the jello and top with cool whip.
  9. Serve with sweet bread.

Gingerbread Biscotti w/ a Chocolate Chip Dip

There are three separate parts to this recipe: 1) Dark Chocolate Chips 2) Cream Cheese Dip 3) Gingerbread Biscotti. The Dark Chocolate Chips recipe is from a recent post I made for Dark Chocolate Chip Cookies. These chocolate chips are completely fat free and sugar free.

Oat Bran Cookies

Posted on

Can I just tell you how freaking excited I am for these cookies?? They are low-fat, low-carb, AND dukan-friendly! Not to mention one cookie will give you your full 2 tbs of daily oat bran. That may not necessarily be a good thing because I can seriously gobble up a dozen of these a day. :)

Up to this point, I have tried MANY variations of cookie recipes that would cater to the low-fat, low-carb rules of the Dukan Diet and every last one of them have been god awful (no exaggerations here). Everything from the non-fat bitter chocolate globs from a few weeks ago to the flimsy, eggy what-nots from just a few days ago. I was close to thinking GOOD Dukan-friendly cookies simply could not be. That is, until earlier today. This recipe combines the most simple ingredients and takes under 10 minutes to prepare. They taste dangerously close to your average oatmeal cookie!

Oat Bran Cookies

Ingredients:

  • 3/4 cup oat bran
  • 1/4 ts baking soda
  • 1/8 ts salt
  • 2 tbs splenda brown sugar
  • 2 packets splenda
  • 2 tbs skim milk
  • cooking spray

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven at 375 degrees.
  2. In a food processor, blend together oat bran, baking soda, salt, brown sugar, and splenda.
  3. Pour mixture into a bowl and add milk. Spray cooking spray into mix for 1 second. Mix ingredients together well.
  4. Form 6 cookies and place on parchment paper.
  5. Bake for 6 minutes.
