These everyday bean burgers satisfy when you want something tasty on a bun to go with the ketchup, mustard, and onions. Top them with salsa and guacamole for a Tex-Mex twist. You can also crumble the burgers to use in tacos or on pizza.
Because fat-free bean burgers freeze and reheat well, you can make a batch or two on a cooler day to enjoy when it's too hot to move or when you have company who prefers a lean, green option. These bean burgers are vegan, gluten free, and high in fiber as well as being free of added fat and cholesterol.
Intensely flavored, startlingly beautiful, Rhubarb Crunch satisfies even in small servings. My healthy version uses rolled oats, whole wheat flour, walnuts, coconut oil, and plenty of this scrumptious "pie plant." Rhubarb is rich in calcium, lutein, vitamin K, and antioxidants, making this dessert good for your bones, eyes, skin, and whole body as well.
Get ready for the Sweet Sixteen basketball playoffs with these super-healthy oatmeal-raisin snack bars. Make 16 bars in just 16 minutes: sweet! They're perfect for budding athelets, full of whole grains and fruit with have no cholesterol or added fat. The bars hold together well and aren't sticky, so you can bring a plate of them into the TV room without hesitation. Of course, they pack well in a lunch bag too.
I'm excited that two teams I follow made it into the Sweet Sixteen: my home team, NC State's mighty Wolfpack, and the team from where I grew up, Michigan State's fierce Spartans. I hope both teams shoot for the moon!
But back to baking.... I took a plate of Oatmeal-Raisin Bars to a friend who sent these comments from her family:
We all loved them and would be very happy to find them in our lunch boxes! "Really good. " "I like the consistency." "Just the right amount of sugar." "It's like a muffin."
I’m so glad that Linda gave me a little time with all of you to share one of my oatmeal recipes.
If you’ve visited my blog, Healthy Slow Cooking, you already know I’m more than a bit oatmeal obsessed. I just counted and I have 61 oatmeal recipes just to keep Winter breakfast exciting.
I am also madly in love with Indian food and eat it whenever possible. Carrot Halwa is a traditionally a thick paste of carrot, sugar and cardamom that’s sometimes topped with saffron and pistachios.
If you’re not sure if you’re a fan of cardamom or not just use 1/2 teaspoon instead of a whole teaspoon. You can always add more but you can’t take it back out!
