Good 4 U
1 c. oatmeal - not instant.
1 c. cottage cheese
2 ripe bananas
1 tsp. vanilla
Cinnamon - a big sprinkle
2 tbsp. Splenda
Blend in a blender. Add a little milk or soymilk if you need
to to make it blend. Not much.
Add half cup pecans if you like. Blend a little more.
Makes great pancakes and you can't taste the cottage cheese.
And really there is no oil or white flour.
This is derived from Bill Phillips Eating for Life - Great
book. But, I always change the recipes.
Use the black (dark green) avocados with the bumps - not the
Juice from half a lemon
Finely chopped onion (probably 2 tbsp. - but I don't
2-3 tbsp. Helmann's or other real mayonnaise
2-3 tbsp. Miracle whip. (You can use all Miracle Whip, but
not vice versa)
2-3 tbsp. salsa
Use a mixer to mix it smooth.
Put the pit in it to keep it from turning dark. All
measurements are approximate. After you taste it the first
time, you can figure out the adjustments you want to make.
It is pretty forgiving.
Muffins - Zucchini and/or Anything
3-4 C. coarsely shredded zucchini
Orrrr 3-4 cups blended bananas
Orrrr 4 cups blended anything reasonable from the fridge.
(I used a mixture of pears, apples and carrots.)
(If you are blending, you can add
the eggs, milk and oil to the
blender so it works better, but
allow for the extra volume when
1 ¼ c. vegetable oil + 2 tbsp. soy or other milk
Orrr 1 cup oil + ½ cup buttermilk
1 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. baking powder
1 tsp. salt
1 tbsp. cinnamon
1 tbsp. vanilla
2.5 c. sugar
3 cups flour
1 cup chopped nuts
Mix it all up and then, if you are
doing anything muffins (the mixed
fruit muffins) add raisins and
Craisins (dried cranberries) - up to 1 c. total.
Preheat oven to 325°. If you have
convection, please use it. 25 min
for convection. Muffins should be
evenly golden brown and should
bounce back when poked. Or use a
toothpick to see if done.
PAM the muffin tins, even if they
are non-stick. If you will soak the
muffin tins right after you remove
the muffins and then put flat on the
top rack of your dishwasher, they
should come clean.
Makes 3-4 dozen muffins of the
Yummy no matter which choices you
