brownie batter dip (for one!)

brownie batter dip | my skinny sweet tooth

After eating funfetti cake batter dip a little more often than I should admit (it’s just so so good!), I thought I would switch things up. I knew it would be good, but this was splendid. Using the same recipe as the funfetti cake batter dip, I swapped the funfetti mix for brownie mix. Man, oh man. This dip is rich, chocolatey and comes nothing short of decadent.

easy baked doughnuts

easy baked doughnuts | my skinny sweet tooth

What if I told you, “Hey there. You can eat 5 doughnuts with glaze for only 7pp … ”

You’d probably look at me like I was some crazy person. However, I’m not one to joke around when it comes to doughnuts. So, what’s the deal?

Obviously baking doughnuts is a sure way to lower points. No frying = no additional fat. And remember one of my kitchen intimidations? Yeast? Ugh, I really need to give it a whirl, but not today.

These are yeast-free, done in 7 minutes, healthy, cake-like doughnuts. Secret?

Pancake Mix.

You have some on hand. All you need is a doughnut pan. A great kitchen essential to help switch things up 😉 Now, let’s have our DOUGHNUTS and eat them too! They are great by themselves, but they are even greater with a glaze … which is totally optional of course 😉 (& P.S. … this is another great recipe to have endless combos. We get creative with pancakes, so why not make them in doughnut form?) 🙂

derby pie pancakes (with bourbon vanilla cream)

derby pie pancakes | my skinny sweet tooth

It’s Derby day here in the good ‘ol state of Kentucky! My husband and I live in derby trifecta, but we don’t usually  partake in derby festivities (besides placing a bet here and there. Go Intense Holiday!) However, the derby food scene is incredible. Mint Juleps, Hot Browns, and the oh so delicious Derby Pie: filled with chocolate, pecans, and BOURBON. Nothing like some booze in your pie.  Or in this case, first thing in the morning pancake style 😉

Even though I didn’t use actual bourbon in the recipe, I found a pure bourbon vanilla extract at Trader Joes. I’ve used it in my egg mixture for french toast and many other things. If you can, get you some! I hear it’s great in cookies, too 😉

These pancakes may look and taste fancy, but it’s nothing of the sorts. (I may or may not have wanted to put on a fascinator or luxe derby hat while I ate these) 😉  It has minimal ingredients and so easy to throw together. And here’s how I did it.

Go baby go! Continue reading “derby pie pancakes (with bourbon vanilla cream)”
