Pintertest Kitchen 8: "Skinny" Desserts
I got called out last month.
Name is hidden to protect the identity of my most favorite baby onesie maker in the whole world.
Crazy, amazing needlepoint skills.
And I have to make her happy until I'm 100% sure I'm done having kids.
But she was totally right.
My Pintertest Kitchen was not the healthiest.
So here, my friends, is my first ever reduced calorie recipe review.
Favorite baby onesie maker, this is for you.
I knowwww, right?
The name alone almost made this a deal breaker.
But also so intriguing that I had to try these two ingredient marvels.
Not bad, I tell you.
Especially at only 138 calories per brownie.
But not terrible.
We can't have the world, people.
It's black beans we're dealing with.
This was my favorite of the three recipes I tried.
Especially at 128 calories/muffin.
The original recipe post has a pretty critical typo.
Baking with 2 TABLESPOONS of wheat flour looks like this:
Baking with 2 CUPS of wheat flour looks like this:
Also, I was almost out of honey after the first round so
I subbed 2/3 honey for 1/3 honey + 1/3 sugar-free vanilla Torani syrup.
Next time I will use the full 2/3 honey because I feel like they would have been better had they been sweeter.
Dense but good, especially considering the calories.
You have to scroll down a bit.
And be sure to adjust the wheat flour.
Unless you're into inverted, soupy muffins.
And well, we can't win them all.
These coconut cookies didn't work out.
But it could have been my burn out after the double batch of muffins.
Or the fact that meringue and I don't really get along.
What have you been up to?
