raw gingerbread bars

raw gingerbread bars | my skinny sweet tooth

I recently found these gems at Trader Joes. Now, I’m not always a fan of gingerbread but when the holidays roll around, I can’t get enough. Gosh, what’s wrong with me? 😉 …

Anyway, those cookies are so delicious and before I knew it, I had ate Mr. Gingerbread and his entire extended family … and their cousins. :/ Whoops.  They’re small and very, very addictive. It’s not until half the box is gone when I realized they are a whopping 2pp each. EACH! Insanity!

From that moment on, those were only for my husband and I placed them out of my sight. So now what am I going to do about my gingerbread craving during the holidays? I’ll tell you what I’m going to do … I’m going to eat gingerbread. Yep, gingerbread … in a raw, clean eating, no bake form. Finally, something I can feel good about eating. (I’ve been on a raw/clean eating kick lately … remember these?)

Oh! And after one bar, I’m completely satisfied. One is all I needed. There’s no going back and forth into the box, pulling out innocent gingerbread babies. See, we’re saving lives! 🙂 Continue reading “raw gingerbread bars”

rosemary raisin muffins

rosemary raisin muffins | my skinny sweet tooth

These are the beautiful beginning to something so familiar in my household now-a-days: raisin rosemary crisps.

Raisins and rosemary are such a unique flavor combination that is unlike anything I’ve had. It’s down right amazing. I initially started this recipe in hopes to make a huge batch of homemade raisin rosemary crisps. However, I was so pleased with how the first step turned out (these muffins) that I only sacrificed a few muffins to be turned to crisps. And the muffins? Well, they’ll make the perfect breakfast for in the morning 🙂 Knowing these flavors may be a little odd for my husband, he happily tried a mini muffin and LOVED it. He requested to take the rest to work with him this week. That, my friends, is a complete WIN in my book. 😉 Now I know he’ll love my pancakes!

You’ll also see that I’ve made 2 sizes: mini & large muffins. Each produce a different size cracker if you decide to further their destiny to the next step, but they are equally delicious 🙂 I’ll provide the points for each kind, which ever you prefer to make 😉 I will add that I prefer the large muffins for the crisps (they are easier to cut) but it’s all about personal preference!
