Guiltless Carrot Cake

Guiltless Carrot Cake

Carrot cake is one of the great loves of my life. It’s a tough world out there for carrot cake. WIth all of the competition and hubbub from the chocolate and red velvet cakes of the world, carrot can sometimes get overlooked. But it shouldn’t! It’s moist, it’s satisfying, it’s rich, and when done well, […]

Lightened Up Samoas- DOAFFG Girl Scout Cookie Series

Lightened Up Samoas!

Last week, I debuted my Skinny Girl Scout Cookie Series with my low-cal take on the chocolate peanut butter classic, The Tag-a-long! But it’s a new week, and time for a new cookie.. and this one’s a doozie.  Lightened up Samoas! My absolute favourite Girl Scout Cookie, the Samoa (or the Caramel Delight, as cookie-eaters […]

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 […]

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 […]

Dessert can be the most unsatisfying part of a healthy-eater’s day. I mean, oranges are great and everything, but they aren’t exactly the ooey-gooey-chocolatey-goodness that we all crave…. which is why I love to create ‘skinny’ desserts. Skinny desserts like my Skinny Mini Not-So-Red-Velvet Cookies. These little beauties have that decadent, punchy, chocolate kick of […]

Skinny German Apple Cake

A really good low calorie dessert is hard to come by. Sure, the grocery store is stocked with options, and there are about 345734895 recipes on the internet….but most of them taste like chalk, cardboard, or cardboard covered in chalk. My Skinny German Apple Cake doesn’t. My Skinny German Apple Cake tastes rich and decadent […]
