Breakfast “Cheesecake” – Healthy Weird Looking BreakfastPosted: February 22, 2011
An old standby for me is baking fruit and cottage cheese on bread. The cottage cheese melts, and if you have a good imagination, you can pretend it is healthy cheesecake! It tastes much better than it looks! Takes 2 minutes to make, and 5-10 to bake.
2 slices whole wheat bread (I love Whole Foods house brand – very soft)
½ cup of low fat cottage cheese
1 ripe banana (also works great with ripe pear – peeled, cored and mashed up)
1 Splenda packet (or you could use a touch of honey or agave)
¼ tsp cinnamon
Palmful of chopped walnuts (1 tbsp)
Mash the fruit and mix with cottage cheese, Splenda, cinnamon & walnuts. Mound on the bread, and place on foil lined toaster oven tray. Bake at 375 for 5-10 minutes. Make coffee or tea. Eat grapefruit.
Your toaster oven may vary, so make sure it looks melty, but not brown.
This has about 375 calories, 20+ grams of protein, 8+ grams of fiber, and is very low fat. Lots of energy!
