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 […]

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 […]

No Campfire Required S’mores Bars

Smores 3

Memorial Day (and, for those of us north of the border, May 2-4 weekend) has come and gone, which means one thing… it’s officially unofficially Summer! And after that winter, everyone’s favourite season is even more exciting than normal.  Beaches, barbecues, steamy long days and gorgeous warm nights– Summer has a lot to offer. And while we […]

Skinny Tag-a-longs! DOAFFG Skinny Girl Scout Cookie Series

Skinny Tag-a-longs

Girl Scout Cookie season. Once a year, women all over the country summon all of the strength they have to avoid the little girls in green selling boxes of temptation. We dodge them at the grocery store. We run from them outside of the bank. And don’t even get me started on avoiding them at […]

96-Calorie Chocolate Chip Cheesecake

96 Calorie Chocolate Chip Cheesecake

  During a recipe brainstorming session yesterday, I tried to come up with the naughtiest, most crave-worthy, hardest-to-make-healthy desserts around. What ended up on my list? Cheesecake. Cheesecake was, like, numbers 1-5 on my naughty list. The creaminess, the decadence, the richness… the unparalleled texture of a truly good piece of cheesecake. So I thought. […]

Dark Chocolate & Cranberry Quinoa Blondies

Dark Chocolate Chip & Cherry Quinoa Blondies

“This is the best healthy dessert you’ve ever made.” THAT is what came out of my guy’s mouth after he ate one of these blondies. That is BIG. I make skinny peanut butter brownies and protein cookies and skinny german apple cake. But these blondies got the fanfare last night. They’re sugar-free (minus the chocolate […]
