Battle of the Holiday 10!
Yesterday it was 63 degrees and this morning it was 34! Boy am I grateful that Hubby got the pellet stove going last night because the house was nice and toasty this morning. It got me in the mood to bake this morning. Do you gain the Holiday 10 every year? I use to but since I went low carb, I have options that allow me to enjoy sweets without gaining the Holiday 10. Although it means I have to cook them - nothing from the local Dunkin Donuts (Rats).
Banana and Coconut muffins
2 cups Carbquick
3 Tablespoons Splenda
2 Tablespoons oil
2 Tablespoons butter softened
1 mashed banana (or banana flavoring)
1 1/2 teaspoon coconut flavoring
Mix all very well and put into a buttered muffin pan (regular size or better yet a mini muffin pan) Bake in a pre-heated 400 degree oven for 13 minutes or until a tooth pick comes out clean.
Total carbs is 2.5 each for the regular or mini muffin
I don't count fat or calories so I didn't figure that out.
So how are doing with your holiday baking and your holiday eating? I'm going to put together some tips on how to survive the Holidays and not feel guilty or deprived for next week.
