Despite my reservations about its theological basis, I have been trying the Trim Healthy Mama way of eating (see also this summary of what THM is). So far, I would say it is helping me. I do not have a lot of weight to lose so it has not been coming off fast but other health issues have been a bit better and that makes me happy.
I have been trying to adapt some dishes we already eat to the THM way and I thought if I am bothering to do the work, I might as well post those recipes here as I have them. So here it is:
Giant Pumpkin Cookie (S):
1/3 c canned pumpkin
1 tbsp coconut oil, melted
2 tbsp flax meal
1 tsp vanilla
1/4 tsp salt
1 c almond meal
1/3 c coconut flour
1/2 c xylitol
1 tbsp molasses
1/2 c water
xylitol cinnamon sugar (2 parts xylitol, 1 part cinnamon)
1. Preheat oven to 400. Grease pie plate.
2. Mix all ingredients except cinnamon sugar and spread in dish.
3. Bake for approx. 25 minutes. The cookie should be just beginning to brown at the edges but still be soft in the middle.
4. Remove from oven and sprinkle cinnamon sugar on top. Enjoy warm.
Serves 8. One serving has approx. 113 calories, 5g of carbs and 10g of fat.
