One of my worst habits I would say would be late night snacking. I do great during the day, eat a great dinner, but after the kids go to bed and my husband and I are watching TV, we tend to snack. And why do I buy Oreo cookies when they are calling my name??
So, I wanted something sweet, but didn’t want cookies, no ice cream, and then I thought of it. “I’ll make a batch of my graham cracker muffins!” Is anyone else crazy enough to start baking at 9:30 p.m? I am!
I whipped the batter together, threw them in the oven, and made a nice glass of tea. Nothing is better than a totally deluxe muffin warm out of the oven. It hit the spot!! AND, I didn’t go over my points for the day!
I’ve posted this recipe before, but if you’ve never seen it, here is the recipe! I got this from Celine at www.havecakewilltravel.com.
The best part is that you use no eggs, or margarine, or butter, or oil for that matter!
1/2 cup all purpose flour
10 graham cracker sheets (I package) ground or smashed into small pieces
1 cup soy milk (I used skim milk)
2 1/2 tsp. baking powder
1/2 cup sugar
2 1/2 TB. ground flax meal mixed with 3 TB warm water(this replaces the egg)
4 TB. chocolate chips
In a mixer, mix together the flour, crushed graham crackers, sugar, baking powder. Next add the milk, flax meal mixed with water, and chocolate chips.
This time I decided to make mini muffins instead of 6 jumbo muffins. For each mini muffin it is 62 calories, 1.25 grams of fat and .7 grams of fiber. I used a mini muffin tin I bought from Pampered Chef, it makes 24 mini muffins.
If you choose to make 6 jumbo muffins, then each muffin would be 251 calories, 5 fat and 2.8 fiber.
What tips do you have for curbing late night snacking???
