Low Fat Waffles

School's started and I like to keep something in the freezer for a fast morning meal.  You know, for those mornings when we run a little late.  Yep, we do that!  ~smile~
I made a LOT of pancakes and waffles last week.  When I went to get them yesterday morning they were gone.  My boys had eaten every one of them!!!  LOL  I made them again today.  These are super fast to make, low fat, light and fluffy!  I make mine in a waffle maker I bought at Walmart one Christmas for $5.00.  I never used it until recently and now it is used all the time!  Go dig your's from out of the back of the cabinet or closet.  Dust off the box and put it to use.  You'll be happy you did!  Waffles aren't just for breakfast.  Top them with fruit and serve as an afternoon treat.  Cut in slices and serve with warmed jam or syrup *Make Your Own Syrup*  in a cup for dipping.  Layer squares on a skewer with fresh fruit and serve with yogurt fruit dip!!!  Enjoy!  Love and hugs!

Low Fat Waffles 
makes 10

3 cups reduced fat biscuit mix, I use Bisquick
1 1/4 to 1 1/2 cups club soda
1 egg, 2 egg whites or egg substitute, beaten
1 1/2 Tablespoons oil
1 to 2 teaspoons vanilla extract

Whisk together biscuit mix, egg, oil, 1-2 teaspoons vanilla and 1 1/4 cup club soda.  If it is too thick add a little more club soda.  Too thin, add more biscuit mix..a Tablespoon at the time.

Cook in waffle maker according to directions.  I cook about 1 1/2 to 2 minutes.  
Eat what you want and put the rest in a freezer bag for another morning.  Pop in the toaster on lowest setting until warm.  Or, in the microwave for 20 seconds, more or less depending on your microwave.

Take out and top with your favorite fruit, whipped cream or syrup.

Mini Chocolate Pie Cups ..... Low Fat

My oldest, Lucas, and I are trying to make up for the Baked Breaded Bacon, I made the other day.  ~smile~ For dessert I made mini chocolate pies in wonton baskets.  Sugar free pudding mix made with fat free milk and non fat whipped topping topped with mini semi sweet chocolate chips.  MMMMM!  The shell was nice and crispy, together with the creaminess of the pudding and topping and little hard bites of the chips...made for a satisfying dessert.  Make it your own by using berries and whipped topping, vanilla pudding and sliced, or diced get the idea.  Place it in the mini cups and they will be cute as a button!  Hope you like them, too!  <3 and HUgs!

Mini Chocolate Pie Cups....Low Fat

wonton skins
3 oz fat free pudding mix, any flavor
1 1/2 cups fat free milk
non fat whipped topping...the kind in the container, or make your own

You'll need a mini muffin pan.

Make pudding and set in refrigerator.  Make this 30 minutes or more, before you make the pies.  Putting in the freezer for a few minutes if needed.  

Preheat oven to 350 degrees

Place wonton skins in muffin pan
Bake for 5-10 minutes, until set 
As always, my oven is different than yours. Please adjust time accordingly
Allow to cool.  Make these while your pudding is setting or even the morning of or night before.  Store in an airtight container or bag.  Be careful and do not crush them.

Allow children to make their own.  Place everything out in assembly line fashion and let them have at it.  Mini M n M's, chopped nuts,  sliced bananas,  strawberries or any berries,  little scoops of ice cream.... You get the idea.  
The boys had fun making theirs.  

Yeah, We play with our food!  ~smile~

Enjoy!  <3 and HUGs!
