Healthy Recipes- Sweet Breads – Pumpkin Bread

Wholegrain pumpkin bread is a WONDERFUL healthy baked treat that makes a quick healthy breakfast   and/or a great food choice to put in your children’s lunch box. (Just store this delicious bread in the freezer and take a piece out the day you want to eat it.)

There are so many healthy pumpkin treats you can make if you buy a Costco size can of pumpkin puree including pumpkin muffins,   pumpkin cookies, pumpkin brownies, pumpkin pie and even pumpkin ice cream.  Pumpkins are LOW in calories (only 15 calories per 1/2 cup) and loaded with nutrients that are so good for your body.

The GREAT NEWS in the “Wonderful World Of Pumpkin Baking” is It Reduces the Need for Extra Fat!  There is only 1 tablespoon of oil in this whole recipe! I have also made this  same recipe with no oil and added a tablespoon more pumpkin puree.  Read More→

Gluten Free Chocolate Scone Recipe

Posted by: | Comments Comments Off on Gluten Free Chocolate Scone Recipe

Healthy Breakfast- Healthy Desserts -Gluten Free Baking – Dairy Free Baking- Chocolate Scones

My little boy Max  is now 4 years old and he just LOVES to bake healthy treats with his mommy.

We talk about what we are putting into each  recipe, and he often makes suggestions to “add more cinnamon,” or “another egg.” We make a mess, have a lot of fun, and together we experiment making new recipes.

The other day, Max  came running down the stairs in the morning right after he woke up announcing that he wanted to bake chocolate scones for “Shoo Shoo,”…… who apparently was turning either 3…… or 5 …. , my son wasn’t exactly sure.

Apparently it was Shoo Shoo’s BIG DAY and he wanted to celebrate.

Although the news of Shoo Shoo’s birthday was a suprise to me,  I was delighted to bake a sweet treat for him and off we went to create our chocolate scone recipe together.

This strawberry frosting is delicious, lower in calories and much healthier than most strawberry cream cheese frostings are.  Read More→
