Today I was stressed. ‘Ho hum. What else is new Debby?’ you ask. Well, instead of eating through my stress, I baked through it. First I tried a recipe I had seen yesterday on Roni’s Greenlite Bites, for Banana Bundt Cake. It has chocolate chips in it! I followed the recipe almost exactly as is, so I will let you just follow Roni’s recipe. I did add 1/2 cup of Splenda, because it wasn’t as sweet as I was expecting when I tasted the batter. This was really tasty, and looked pretty enough to take to a potluck or something–mine looked just like the picture on Roni’s site. It has CHOCOLATE CHIPS in it! And one big slice is only 2 points. Of course I had to have a piece ‘to make sure it was okay’ before I froze the rest of it! Then I decided to bake a couple of loaves of zucchini bread. I still haven’t posted this recipe on my sidebar, and it is one of my alltime favorites. Again, a big slice for 2 points. I only had 1/2 slice of this one. Then I remembered a recipe that Lori had posted a while ago, and I really wanted to try it, because I wanted to try baking with the protein powder, and also because I had bought some apricots that weren’t primo, but I thought they would be good baked in something. And oatmeal bars sounded like a good place to put apricots. I adjusted Lori’s recipe a little, so my version of this recipe is over on my sidebar. Man, these were REALLY tasty. They were more–3 points, but with the addition of the protein powder, they should stick with you longer, which makes them worthy. I had one of them for my afternoon snack with a little lite cool whip on top. I was really excited that something baked with protein powder could be so delicious. So, as you can see, a day a little heavy on the baked goods. But overall, I only ate 24 points today, so that is a really good day. And even though I had trouble concentrating, in between the baking, I actually got a lot of quilting done today. And a little cleaning. And I finally forced myself out the door at 5pm for a 2 mile run. I just can’t seem to make myself go to Curves on these days that I am feeling stressed.
