Makeover Monday ~~ Pumpkin Pie Crisp

image_pdfimage_print

It is  Monday, so it is time for another recipe makeover. I love to take favorite recipes and make them THM friendly. One of the biggest hurdles people have to overcome is thinking that healthy eating means never having their favorite foods again. The truth is that you can make a healthy version of almost any meal. And most meals don’t require that much work to re-make!

I love pumpkin pie, but sometimes I don’t want to go through the process of making a crust. I have made crustless pumpkin pie before and it is all good, but it lacks a little something. When I saw this recipe for Pumpkin Pie Crisp I knew it would solve both problems! This recipe is super simple to put together, super tasty and completely good for you. I hope that you will enjoy this recipe as much as I did! As a side note, the original recipe did not call for any nuts in the topping so this is completely optional, but I think chopped pecans in the topping would have taken this over the edge in yumminess! I have included them in the recipe as an optional addition. If you love nuts, I would highly recommend it!

The most wonderful time of the year is often the most stressful when it comes to living a healthy lifestyle. You are going to be running a lot more with holiday events and responsibilities. There will be unhealthy temptations at every gathering. Heavy, rich, foods are what entire events will be planned around. What are you going to do in the face of this temptaion? Do you have a plan to make it through the holidays with victory? Did you know that you can start the new year with a head start even through the holiday season? I want to help you do it!

Registration is now open for my final group coaching session of the year and you are not going to want to miss it!! I am so excited about this group! I think it is my favorite set up so far!

We are going go encourage each other to finish this year STRONG and be in control of the holiday season instead of letting it overtake and overwhelm us! But don’t get the idea that this is going to be some kind of crazy bootcamp. That is not my style! I am going to encourage and empower you to success with tips and tricks as well as lots of yummy recipes. I will also show you how to treat your way through this season without undoing all of the progress you’ve made so far! When January 1st hits, you won’t need a resolution, you will just keep on keeping on! 🙂

In addition to my normal line-up of features for an extended accountability group we are going to go over the following holiday features:

  • Recipe Makeover (you give me your favorite holiday recipe and I make it THM friendly for you)
  • Holiday Meal, Drink and Dessert recipes each week
  • Travelling on Plan
  • Gift ideas
  • Gratitude
  • And much, much more!

There will also be prizes (because challenges are more fun that way!) We will have two different challenges running through the course of the group and at least one random giveaway drawing. Another random drawing will be added for every 10 people that sign up for this group making a possibility of 5 random prize drawings throughout the course.

Registration closes October 31st and the challenge starts November 3rd. Members will be added to the group on November 2nd to get a chance to look around before the challenge starts.

The cost for this group is $115 per person. As always, previous clients get a 10% loyalty discount on all my coaching services. ALSO: if you sign up with a friend you will both get a $10 refund on you class price! (Refund given after both registrations are finalized and payment has been received.) Please share this opportunity with as many people as you can. These classes are so much more fun when there is lots of participation!

Like I said, this is my last group of the year. I am not taking on any more individual or group coaching clients after this until after the first of the year to spend some time just enjoying my family. I have loved the time I have gotten to spend with each and every client over the past year! It has been a blessing to me to be able to help encourage others on their journey as I walk my own.

If you have any questions about this event please don’t hesitate to ask!

Makeover Monday ~ Snickerdoodle Bread

image_pdfimage_print

It is  Monday, so it is time for another recipe makeover. I love to take favorite recipes and make them THM friendly. One of the biggest hurdles people have to overcome is thinking that healthy eating means never having their favorite foods again. The truth is that you can make a healthy version of almost any meal. And most meals don’t require that much work to re-make!

There are a few flavors in this world that immediately make me hungry. One of those flavors is snickerdoodle cookie flavor! If the word snickerdoodle is in the name I am immediately interested! I am not sure what it is about them, I mean, they are a pretty simple cookie. Maybe it is the kooky name!

Thinking about the name made me wonder where the name came from so I decided to look it up. Just in case you were wondering as well, here is what Wikipedia has to say about it:

The Joy of Cooking claims that snickerdoodles are probably German in origin, and that the name is a corruption of the German word Schneckennudel, a Palatine variety of schnecken. It is also possible that the name is simply a nonsense word with no particular meaning, originating from a New England tradition of whimsical cookie names.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Snickerdoodle

Now that we have that out of the way… 🙂

I saw this recipe for snickerdoodle bread and I knew I had to try and make it over! The first reason I noticed this recipe is because it was from a site called “healthy printable recipes”. Um…I am not sure who’s definition of healthy they were using but…let’s just say there was nothing healthy about this recipe to start with! However it was pretty easy to make over and the outcome was fantastic! Even my husband liked it and he is very picky.

What you will need:

Snickerdoodle Bread ~ THM S

Author: myhealthyjourneyforlife

Ingredients

  • cups THM baking blend
  • ½ cup oat fiber
  • 2 tsps baking powder
  • ½ tsp cream of tartar
  • ½ tsp mineral salt
  • 1 ½ tsps cinnamon
  • 1 cup butter softened
  • 1 cup xes sweetener or gentle sweet
  • ½ – 1 tsp pure stevia
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 tsp of vanilla
  • ¾ cup Greek yogurt

For Topping

  • 3 tsp THM super sweet
  • 1 tsp cinnamon

Instructions

  • In a large bowl, mix together the butter, sweeteners, salt and cinnamon until creamy and fluffy.
  • Mix in the eggs until well combined then stir in the vanilla and Greek yogurt.
  • In a separate bowl, mix together the bb, oat fiber, baking powder, and cream of tartar.
  • Add to the cream mixture and mix until well combined.
  • Place the batter into a loaf pan or 4 mini loaf pans or muffin tins.
  • In a bowl, mix together 3 tsp of super sweet and 1 tsp of cinnamon and sprinkle over the batter.
  • In a preheated oven to 350° bake for 65-70 minutes for loaf (cover loaf pan with foil after 30 minutes to prevent the top burning) 35-40 minutes for 4 mini-loaves, or 15-20 minutes for muffins. Test center of bread with cake tester. When tester comes out clean bread is read. Allow to cool and enjoy!

Notes

I suggest super sweet for the topping on this bread because it will stay more crystalized. If you were to use a powdered sweetener like gentle sweet it would just melt into the top.

I hope you enjoy this recipe! Making it in the mini loaf pans would make it a great gift idea for the holidays!

Welcome to Fall, and all things PUMPKIN!

image_pdfimage_print

It is finally here! Fall is truly my favorite season of the year! And where I live it literally waited until the first true day of fall to even pretend to cool off. Suddenly we woke up to a crisp cool morning, and it was glorious!

Of course, fall brings a desire to be cozy and comfortable. We want our softest most comfortable hoodies and our most favorite smells and tastes. With that desire comes the scent of cinnamon and all things pumpkin! With that in mind I will be posting several of my favorite, seasonal, pumpkin recipes for you over the next few days. I hope this will get you fully in the “fall mood” and give you some great ways to treat yourself during this time of comfort food without worrying about derailing your health journey.

Today’s recipe is by far one of my favorites and one of the most well received recipes on my blog. This delicious Pumpkin Cheesecake is decadent and a crowd pleaser, whether they are watching what they eat or not! Everyone I have served it to has raved about it. You will definitely want to give it a try! Click on the title or picture to visit the recipe page!
