Smoky, Spicy (and vegan!) Roasted Brussels Sprouts

I admit, I’ve been sitting on this one a while. Of course, there’s a story. So in my family we observe the season of Lent (traditionally though of as the 40-ish days preceding Easter). I’ve always made a Lent promise, which can also be called a Lenten sacrifice. Long story short: you give up something you like for Lent. Now …

Salted Caramel Protein Mini-Cheesecakes

Aaaaand here we are with another cheesecake recipe on Bariatric Foodie. Predictable, right? Ok, ok I’ll admit over the years I can be accused of being a bit cheesecake obsessed. But that’s mainly because I think they are the post-op dessert. I mean, think about it. The main ingredient is cream cheese. Now yes, that can be fatty, but you …

No-Flour, Low-Sugar Peanut Butter Cookies

Oh peanut butter. How do I love thee…let me count the ways! Now I will preface this recipe by saying that it is possible to lower the fat significantly in this recipe by replacingĀ some (not all) of the peanut butter for peanut flour.
