OK... so my dad had a cheesecake the other day, and I looked and it was 36 g fat and 500 calories, PER SLICE! I decided right then that I'd for sure have to come home and make up [yet] another low fat recipe.
So, here it is... a recipe that won't kill your diet, but will satisfy your craving for dessert...
For the crust:
1.5 cups oats, ground in a blender so they're like 'crumbs.
10 packets sugar replacement (OR just less than 1/2 c of the measureable)
1/4 cup + 2 TBSP fat free butter spray (I used the "I can't believe it's not butter" spray)
1 TBSP hot water
in a bowl, mix the oats and the sugar replacement and make a well in center, and put the butter replacement and the hot water. Mix with a fork until crumbly. Press with hands into bottom and part way up the sides of 8x8 dish or pie pan.
For the filling:
2 pkgs fat free cream cheese
24 packets sugar replacement (OR 1 cup of the measureable kind)
1/4 tsp lemon juice
2 second spray of non stick cooking spray (it works as an immulsifier/flavor enhancer)
1/4 tsp salt
2 tsp vanilla
1TBSP fat free sour cream
3 egg whites (or equivalent of egg replacement)
beat the cream cheese and sugar replacement in mixer until smooth. Add lemon juice and spray of cooking spray and continue mixing--about a minute. Add the salt, vanilla, and sour cream and beat until completely mixed; scrape sides and beat again--about another minute or two. Add the egg whites and beat for an additional one to two minutes. Pour into the crust. Bake at 350 for 35-40 minutes, until set in middle. *I think humidity may affect the time--if it's very humid, it may take longer to get set.
After baked, allow to cool and then move to fridge. After it's chilled, slice into 8 pieces (you can cut the calories even further by making 12 pieces--it's doable for sure in the square pan, and still gives a good snack!)
nutritional info: (if in 8 pieces)
1 g fat
11.5 g. protein
1.5 g. fiber
(if in 12 pieces)
~.5 g. fat
~7.5 g protein
1 g. fiber
***remember... our goal is still to eat right. Don't be tempted to eat the whole thing, but don't completely deprive yourself of snacks, as that will make you binge later. Freeze half [in air tight container] and save it, and have a piece a day--at those caloric values--you can!
