Lightened Up Lemon Bars

Lightened Up Lemon Bars - Diary of a Formerly Fat Girl

  The day I’ve been waiting for since December 26th is finally here– it’s Spring!!! And while it may not feel quite like Spring where you are (or where I am, unfortunately), it’s only a matter of time before the grass is green and the daffodils  are peeking their smiling faces up at us. In the […]

Perfect Lemon Cupcakes

Perfect Lemon Cupcakes - Diary of a Formerly Fat Girl

I know that ‘perfect’ gets thrown around pretty liberally on the internet, so it’s fair enough if you’re a bit skeptical of the title of this post… and I’ve tried enough so-called ‘perfect’ recipes to know that most of the time, they’re perfect in name only. That is not the case for my Perfect Lemon […]

Dark Chocolate Football Truffles

Dark Chocolate Peanut Butter & Cookie Dough Truffles - Diary of a Formerly Fat Girl

Dessert tends to become an afterthought on Super Bowl Sunday, but after all of the spicy chicken and cheesy dips, you’ll want a little something sweet! These cute little football-shaped truffles are easy to make ahead of time and are great for kids and grown-ups alike.  

Flourless Pumpkin Spice Protein Cookies

FlourlessPumpkin

“Cookie” might not be the right word to use here. Sort of like my popular banana-based protein cookies, these are low-cal, sugar free, vegan, gluten-free little baked morsels of pumpkiny goodness. And while their natural sweetness easily satisfies a dessert craving, they’re no one trick ponies; they’re great as a quick breakfast on-the-go or a hunger […]

Best Ever Chocolate Chip Zucchini Cake

Best Ever Chocolate Chip Zucchini Cake - Diary of a Formerly Fat Girl

As you’re probably able to tell by now, my garden is producing a ton of zucchinis this season…. which is great! Not only are they tasty grilled, steamed, or baked, but they are incredibly moist (and healthy!) in baked goods (just check out my Black Currant & Chocolate Chip Zucchini Loaf.) Perhaps the most famous […]

Black Currant & Chocolate Chip Zucchini Loaf

Black Currant & Chocolate Chip Zucchini Loaf - Diary of a Formerly Fat Girl

It’s zucchini season! And while we all know that this super-versatile, ultra low-calorie summer squash is great baked, grilled, broiled, or spiralized, it also can make fantastically moist baked goods…. like my Black Currant & Chocolate Chip Zucchini Loaf! Perfect for a quick morning bite, a satisfying dessert, or a solution to that 3pm donut craving, this […]

Skinny Lemon Blueberry Cheesecake Bars

Skinny Lemon Blueberry Cheesecake

Peas and carrots. PB & J. McAdams and Gosling. Some things just go together. But “healthy eating” and “cheesecake”? Those two aren’t exactly joined at the hip. Until my Skinny Lemon Blueberry Cheesecake, that is.  Super creamy and satisfying, these cheesecake bars are only indulgent tasting. With about 3/4 less fat than traditional cheesecake and […]
