cinnamon & sugar pancake bites

cinnamon & sugar pancake bites | my skinny sweet tooth

I’ll tell you right now. When these babies were baking in the oven, they smelled like deep-fried elephant ears! Remember those? Do they even still make those at the fairs and such? Or what about churros? Maybe this could also be called churro pancake bites. Mmmm … see what happens when I start thinking about food: a chain reaction starts. One minute it’s pancakes and the next it’s a mexican dessert. Either way, these are delicious and guilt free. Kids will love them as they can dig in with their hands. Who am I kidding? Hands are the best utensils …

So for breakfast, brunch or late night dessert, it’s always a great time for pancake bites. In addition, the possibilities are endless! Consider stuffing each puff with a chocolate morsel and dipping them in caramel sauce. What about using bananas and walnuts and making a banana bread pancake bite? See, endless! (#weightwatcher points will vary of course 😛 )

italian baked egg

italian baked egg | my skinny sweet tooth

Quick! Name something you could eat as a main dish for any meal: breakfast, lunch, and dinner. … … … …  Ok, ok, pizza doesn’t count! (but who doesn’t love cold pizza the next morning?! yum! 😉 )

I’ll give you a hint: it’s the perfect balance of melty cheese, buttery egg yolk, and molten tomato sauce. All 3 make up one of the best things I can rely on when I need that “comfort food” fix -any time of day! Yep, it’s:

ITALIAN BAKED EGG, ITALIAN BAKED EGG!

For this recipe, I love to add polenta. It’s so creamy and adds a depth of flavor that sets this apart from other italian baked eggs. I’ll never make it without polenta. Trust me, it’s that good.

I want everyone to try these italian baked eggs and fall in love like I did. Maybe I should host a brunch. You’re all invited! 😉

coconut almond “butter”

coconut almond "butter" | my skinny sweet tooth

I’ve been on a spread kick lately (jam, anyone?) and quite frankly, butter isn’t one of them. I’ve slowly (and officially) kicked the butter habit. I no longer need it on pancakes, waffles, or even grilled cheese! What’s my secret?

COCONUT OIL

whipped cookie butter cups

whipped cookie butter cups | my skinny sweet tooth

3 of the best ingredients around are joyously singing as they come together in this FANTASTIC dessert. And I on the other hand, am joyously singing as I’m shoving these into my mouth.

Cookie butter (aka biscoff spread) is heavenly by itself, but mixing it up with whipped topping and spooning it in a dark chocolate cup? To die for! Oh, and what about popping them in the freezer? They taste like cookie butter ice-cream. Um, hello! Give me two and I’m happy for the rest of the day. See, I was going to have just one … but that didn’t happen … 😉

(I also added some other ideas/uses for the whipped cookie butter below 😉 You know, in case there’s no chocolate cups around …)

caprese polenta stacks

caprese polenta stacks | my skinny sweet tooth

One of my favorite things to order at an italian restaurant is the caprese salad. It seems to come in different forms, but they all compare with the main ingredients: tomatoes, basil, mozzarella, and balsamic. Angels sings when these come together. I had recently made a caprese chicken and it was incredible. This go round, I had no chicken but I did have a tube of organic polenta in my pantry …

I could have easily thrown together this, but wanted something easier. Easier?! How could it get any easier? Well, let me tell you. The hardest part of this meal: slicing tomatoes. Oh, and maybe waiting for the cheese to melt … but that glorious moment will come 🙂 I had these as a vegetarian meal with a side of brown rice, but these would make the most perfect hor dourves that would impress just about anyone. I’ve broken up the points for however you decide to serve them; hor dourves, appetizer & meal. Enjoy!
