bloomedbud, there's a longer recipe, but here's what i have been doing lately to make homemade granola.

1 cup kasha (buckwheat) kernals
1 cup oatmeal
1 cup granular splenda
some butterbuds (optional if you want a bit of buttery taste)
1/4 cup some flavor of sf davinci snowcone syrup

stir all together and spread in large pan that has been sprayed with butter flavored pam. bake at 350* for 27 minutes stirring every 9 minutes.

i have used several different flavors of syrup and don't really have a favorite. the batch i'm using now is made with sf banana syrup. (of course, davinci isn't the only maker of these syrups. torani and a few others make them, too. they are 0 pts.) i find some flavors like vanilla, chocolate, and hazelnut in the grocery store, but i ordered several flavors off the net including white chocolate, german chocolate cake, banana, peach, and apple pie. it's kind of pricey but lasts a long time.

i did see on another board that you can sometimes find davinci at t j maxx and ross and maybe walmart. just make sure you use sugar free and not regular so it will be 0 pts.

(this is prob more than you wanted to read, right?)

Sandra, I just saw your question today back on 08/21 about the different flavor puddings. I'm sure they would work but they wouldn't be cannoli cream anymore...right?

This was on Barbos Diet Kitchen. It sounds good to me but Jim hates coconut so I may never make it.

Almond Joy Pudding

2 cup Instant SF/FF White Chocolate Pudding, Prepared with Skim Milk
2 cup Instant SF/FF Chocolate Fudge Pudding, Prepared with Skim Milk
1/2 tsp Coconut Extract
1/2 tsp almond extract

1. Prepare each of the puddings with 2 cups skim milk in separate bowls.
2. Add 1/2 tsp. coconut extract to the white chocolate pudding.
3. Add 1/2 tsp. almond extract to the chocolate fudge pudding.
4. Place both bowls into refrigerator and let set for at least 5 minutes.
5. In four one-cup bowls, layer the 2 puddings starting with the white chocolate, then the chocolate fudge, etc.
6. Serve, or store in refrigerator, covered.

okay, before i go any further i want to share a quick recipe with ya'll. it is an excellent way to use wpa's. i had forgotten about it till this week. it's 2 pt brownies and they are delicious.


KILLER BROWNIES (high fiber!)

1 box betty crocker carb monitor walnut brownie mix (other brownie mixes would work, too, if they are the lower point ones)
2.5 cups water
3 cups all bran cereal
1 tablespoon baking powder

mix cereal with water and let soak for 5 minutes. (soaking is important)
add brownie mix and baking powder, mix and let sit for a minute or two so the baking powder
has a chance to work.

bake in 9x13 pan (i use a broiler pan) that has been sprayed with pam. 350* for 30 minutes.

I found this on Kippy's site and honestly it sounds too good to be true. I'll be trying it one of these days. I've never used xanthum gum and I didn't check to see if it was Core. It can't be that many calories, can it?

New York Italian-Style Cheesecake

3 Eggs
1lb FF Ricotta
8oz FF Sour Cream
1 cup Splenda
1-1/2 Anise Extract (more or less added to your taste)
1/2 teaspoon Lemon Extract
1/2 teaspoon Xanthum Gum (optional for thickening)

Prehea oven to 350. Mix everything in blender or food
processor until smooth Pour into 8 inch baking pan. Place baking
pan inside another pan and 1-2 inches of water into the outer pan,
creating a water bath for the cheesecake. Then place both of the
pans inside the oven on a top or middle shelf. Bake for 1 hour and
then turn heat off. Crack the oven door and let the cheesecake rest
in the oven until t cools to room temp, about 1 hour. Makes 6 servings.

CORE BANANA CAKE

i made this tonight and it's really good. Curtis said he'd like it better if it had raisins and nuts. i guess you could add them but would have to count pts. this cake is 0 pts without the frosting. 5 pts with icing.

PHASE 1: MIX TOGETHER:
2 cups old-fashioned rolled oats
1/2 cup ff sour cream
1 cup ff milk
1/4 cup sf da vinci banana syrup or 1/4 cup more of ff milk
1 teaspoon vanilla
3 ripe bananas mashed
2 eggs

LET STAND ABOUT 10 MINUTES SO THE OATMEAL WILL HYDRATE. THIS WAY IT WILL BE A SMOOTHER TEXTURE)

PREHEAT OVEN TO 350*.
SPRAY 9X11 CAKE PAN WITH BUTTER FLAVORED PAM

PHASE 2
To bowl of rehydrated oatmeal add:
2 teaspoons baking soda
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 cups granular splenda
2 cups oat bran
1.5 teaspoons cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon nutmeg

Mix thoroughly with blender. spread into cake pan and bake for 40 minutes or till toothpick comes out clean.

let cake cool. spread easy icing on top and refrigerate about 3 hours. i made this tonight. we cut into it after 1.5 hours. it was good, but i think this cake will be even better tomorrow.

i adapted this from the carrot cake recipe. i have not figured flex pts. i believe everything is core except for the ff cool whip in the icing.
