GGMOMWA....That sounds delicious. I entered it into the recipe calculator on Sparkrecepies and this is what I got assuming you don't use any LF Products or Sweetner instead of sugar etc.

Some of you might enjoy the recipe below. I don't know how to look up the calories, but it could also be made with a sweetener instead of sugar.

The most dangerous chocolate cake recipe in the world!

5 MINUTE CHOCOLATE MUG CAKE

1 Coffee Mug
4 tablespoons flour(that’s plain flour, not self-rising)
4 tablespoons sugar
2 tablespoons baking cocoa
1 egg
3 tablespoons milk
3 tablespoons oil
3 tablespoons chocolate chips (optional) some nuts (optional)
Small splash of vanilla

Add dry ingredients to mug, and mix well . Add the egg and mix thoroughly.
Pour in the milk and oil and mix well.
Add the chocolate chips (if using) and vanilla, and mix again.
Put your mug in the microwave and cook for 3 minutes on high.
The cake will rise over the top of the mug, but don’t be alarmed!

Allow to cool a little, and tip out onto a plate if desired. EAT!
(this can serve 2 if you want to share!)

And why is this the most dangerous cake recipe in the world?

Because now we are all only 5 minutes away from chocolate cake at any time of the day or night!

Yum!!! Sounds wonderful and it's making my mouth water! Gonna have to get some bananas and oats tomorrow since I only have quick oats here at home. I think I will make the smaller ones, funny but two definitely sounds more appealing than just one! LOL !!

And when I come up with something tasty, I will definitely share!!

Thanks Shazz emoticon

I found a recipe for Banana Nut muffins on Sparkrecipes.com but when I went back to find the link for you guys I couldn't find it. Either way, I'd made some small changes to it, so this will be what I actually made. They didn't rise fabulously but they did taste great. Thought you guys might like them for a sweet but healthy treat.

Ingredients


100 g owhole wheat flour
100 grams oatmeal
100 mls Skim milk
50 grams brown sugar
50 g applesause
2 egg whites
2 tsp baking powder
2 tsp cinnamon
3 bananas
25 g peacans

Directions
Preheat oven to 375 and spray muffin tin
Soak the oats in the milk for 15 mins to an hour (an hour if you're using "old fashioned oats" according to the original recipe...I'm not sure what the difference between old fashioned oats and new fangled ones are since over here [ireland] we just have one kind and I'd consider them old fashioned but they only took 15 mins to soak)
Mash the banana and add to the oats along with the applesauce and egg whites
Mix the dry ingredients together seperatly
Mix wet ingredients with the dry. Apparently if you overmix the muffins will be tough.
bake for 15 to 20 mins

yummy nummy muffin

Now, according to the original recipe this makes 12 muffins. I made 25 little ones so that I halve the calories etc per serving and occassionally I can overindulge and have two *gasp*

Assuming you make 12 the nutritional info is as follows (more or less...I used an extra banana and peacans instead of walnuts so if you want the exact nutritional info you'll have to enter this as a recipe to sparkrecipes...I'm too lazy for that :p)
Calories : 137
Total Fat : 2.4g
Cholesterol : .4 mg
Sodium : 126.7 mg
Total Carbs : 26.4 g
Dietry Fibre : 2.6 g
Protein ; 4.4g

Now remember that info is per serving if you make 12. If you make 24 little ones instead you can halve it or have two servings in the same day or whatever way you'd like to "cheat".

Hope you enjoy!



And please...if you guys have any good recipes......share!
