Makeover Monday ~ Orange (or Orange Cranberry) Scones

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!

My daughter requested this recipe and I was all to eager to comply! One of my favorite things to get at Panera Bread (known as St. Louis Bread Company around here) is their orange scone. It is delicious, but it is NOT kind to the waist-line. I used this recipe for inspiration. This variation is not quite as thick as the Panera version, but it is a wonderful substitute anyway! A tender biscuit texture that is bursting with orange flavor. You can make it with or without cranberries and both versions are fantastic. I opted to leave off a glaze and sprinkle the top with a bit of sweetener. I used xylitol because it crystallizes best, but you can use any sweetener you like.

You Will Need:

I always use oat fiber to make my baking blend stretch farther. If you do not have oat fiber you can always sub equal amounts of baking blend unless it is stated otherwise.

Orange (or Orange Cranberry) Scones ~ THM S

Tender delicious biscuit texture bursting with orange flavor
Servings: 8
Author: myhealthyjourneyforlife

Ingredients

  • 1 cup THM Baking Blend
  • 1/2 cup Oat Fiber
  • 6 tbsp xes sweetener or gentle sweet
  • 1 tbsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp mineral salt
  • zest of one orange
  • 1 scoop THM Collagen optional
  • 1 tsp Sunflower Lecithin optional
  • 6 tbsp butter cold
  • 3/4 cup nut milk 1 tbsp reserved
  • 1 tsp natural orange extract
  • 1 cup cranberries, sliced or chopped optional
  • 1 tbsp xylitol or sweetener of choice

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 425 degrees.
  • Whisk together baking blend, oat fiber, sweetener, baking powder, salt, collagen, lecithin and orange zest. (I like to use the food processor, but you can do this by hand.)
  • Add butter and cut in till coarse crumbs are formed.
  • Stir in nut milk and extract. Fold in cranberries if using. (I sliced my cranberries in half before folding them in.)
  • Knead the dough a bit and form into a 1″ thick disk on a lightly greased baking sheet. Brush the top of the disk with the reserved 1 tablespoon of nut milk.
  • Sprinkle the 1 tbsp of xylitol (or other sweetener) over the top of the dough.
  • Cut the disk into 8 wedges. (I know mine are cut into 4, but I divided the dough into two disks to make 2 flavors.) At this point you can leave the edges touching or separate slightly before baking.
  • Bake for 20-25 minutes, checking at 15 minutes.

I Am Not On A Diet

image_pdfimage_print

I am not on a diet. I get asked often if I am, but I am not.

Diets are temporary. Diets are restrictive. Diets make you feel like you are missing out. Diets leave out whole food groups. Diets do something to you mentally, making you want to run out and eat every single thing you see. None of those things are true of the way I eat.

I have made choices when it comes to food. I have chosen to eat foods that are nourishing to my body and my mind. I have chosen to not neglect any food group that God created and called good. I have chosen to learn how to eat those foods in ways that are helping me lose weight. I have chosen to learn how to eat those foods in ways that give me the most benefit.

I have also chosen to enjoy food. I celebrate eating well. I celebrate eating foods that taste good. I enjoy sweet treats and desserts. I enjoy celebratory feasts. And I enjoy lightening things up.

Eating in misery is not sustainable for life. Restricting whole food groups is not sustainable for life. Eating tiny portions is not sustainable for life. And doing these things; eating in such a way that I know I can’t sustain, does not teach me how to eat for life. It sets me up to fail.

So I have chosen for life. There are faster ways to lose weight, sure. But there are no faster routes to total, life-long healthy living. There are no short-cuts, just daily choices. So I chose not to diet! How about you?

Makeover Monday ~ Strawberry Bread Two Ways

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!

E Slice on top
S Slice on bottom

This recipe was a request from a friend. She sent me a link to this recipe and asked if I could convert it. I decided to make a recipe that you can use in either an E or S setting. The recipe is so similar either way that I did this in just one recipe card. The variations are specified in both the ingredient list and the directions so just look for the E and S designations for the option you are choosing.

A few notes about this recipe: Much of the “pop of flavor” is from the glaze. I highly encourage you to poke holes in your bread as the recipe directs so the glaze gets down into the loaf. When you are making the batter for the S version it will get very thick. It is going to seem like it will be too dry, but it is not. The E version takes about 20 minutes less time to cook than the S version. When looking at the pictures below, the S version is always on the bottom or the right with one exception. The final picture in step 4 under the glaze has the E version on the bottom. I used a 12 oz bag of frozen strawberries, thawed, and it was the perfect amount to put in both the bread and the glaze.

You Will Need:

I always use oat fiber to make my baking blend stretch farther. If you do not have oat fiber you can always sub equal amounts of baking blend unless it is stated otherwise.

Strawberry Bread – THM E or S

Servings: 10
Author: myhealthyjourneyforlife

Ingredients

For Bread

  • ½ c xes sweetener or gentle sweet
  • ½ c almond milk
  • ½ c Greek yogurt for E
  • ½ c coconut oil melted for S
  • 1 egg
  • 1 ½ tsp vanilla
  • 2 c rolled oats ground into flour for E
  • 1 c baking blend for S
  • ½ c oat fiber for S
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • ¼ tsp mineral salt
  • 2 c. diced strawberries
  • 2 tsp. oat flour or oat fiber

For Glaze

  • ½ c xes sweetener or gentle sweet must be powdered
  • 2 tbsp Greek yogurt for E
  • 2 tbsp melted butter for S
  • ½ tsp vanilla or almond extract
  • 1 pinch mineral salt
  • 1/3 c diced strawberries

Instructions

To Make Bread

  • Preheat oven to 350 F.
  • Mix together sweetener, milk, (yogurt if making E), egg and vanilla.
  • In a separate bowl mix together oat flour, baking powder and salt.
  • Add dry ingredients to wet ingredients and stir to combine.
  • If making S, add melted coconut oil to batter and mix to combine.
  • Toss diced strawberries with 2 tsp oat flour or oat fiber.
  • Fold strawberries into the batter.
  • Pour batter into a greased bread pan and bake E loaf for about 40 minutes, The S loaf will take about 60 minutes. A toothpick inserted into the center of the loaf should come out clean.
  • Allow to cool in the pan for 10 minutes.
  • Remove to a rack to cool further.

To Make Glaze

  • Combine all ingredients and mix until smooth.
  • Poke holes in the top of your loaf (this is primarily for the E loaf but I recommend it for both versions). I used the thicker end of a chopstick to do this, you could use a knife, but you want the glaze to be able to get into the holes.
  • Spread glaze over loaf while it is still just barely warm.
  • Allow to cool completely and enjoy.

Notes

A few notes about this recipe:
Much of the “pop of flavor” is from the glaze. I highly encourage you to poke holes in your bread as the recipe directs so the glaze gets down into the loaf.
When you are making the batter for the S version it will get very thick. It is going to seem like it will be too dry, but it is not.
The E version takes about 20 minutes less time to cook than the S version.
When looking at the pictures below, the S version is always on the bottom or the right with one exception. The final picture in step 4 under the glaze has the E version on the bottom.
I used a 12 oz bag of frozen strawberries, thawed, and it was the perfect amount to put in both the bread and the glaze. 
When divided into 10 slices, each slice of the E loaf has a grand total of 12.5 net carbs, so you can easily add this to an E meal. This bread could be made exactly the same using any other fruit you like. To be able to make it both ways you would want to stick to berries, but for the E version, you could use any fruit you like!
