Low Fat Baking Recipes Round Up

Low Fat Baking RecipesHello friends, the round up for low fat baking recipes is finally here! It got delayed because my husband was quite busy the past week and he was able to help me only today. I would like to thank each and every participant for flooding my inbox with so many healthy baking recipes. I wish I could distribute prizes to everybody, but at this moment I'm restricting to two. Yes, we decided to choose 2 entries at random instead of 1 I had mentioned in the event announcement. Want to find out who the winners are and the prizes?

Meeta's Coconut & Milk Cookies
Very simple recipe for cookies made with non fat milk powder and powdered coconut. Prepare the dough while the oven is preheating and you can have freshly baked eggless coconut cookies in no time.
2-3 tsp – WHOLE MILK

1) Mix all purpose flour and milk powder in a mixing bowl. See that they mix well and there are no lumps. Then add butter, sugar and baking soda.
2) Now add milk I tsp at a time and knead the mixture into a soft dough.
3) Preheat oven to 375 degree. Grease a cookie sheet now and then powder it with all purpose flour. Form small balls of dough and flatten them pressing coconut powder on top.
4) The mixture will form 30-35 cookies. But it depends on the size you choose.
5) Place the cookie sheet on middle rack. They will take 12-13 min to bake.
6) Take them out and let them cool for some time before taking them off the cookie sheet.

Mashed bananas serve two purposes in the recipe. One as an egg substitute and another as fat substitute and the result is a very moist fat free and vegan banana bread.
Mukta's Comments:
I followed the exact recipe as mentioned in above link. The only change I made was, I baked it in a 9 inch round cake pan and I decorated it with Banana Slices. We had a 'Summer Dessert Bake Off' at work. I was really scared by the look of it; Nonetheless it was a huge hit. I did not add any nuts to keep it fat free. But for next time my parents have already advised me to add nuts and substitute Honey/Maple Syrup for half of the sugar. I was left with extra batter. I added Light Vanilla Soy milk, water and made pancakes.
Parita's Fat Free Banana Bread
Don't throw away the over ripe bananas sitting on the kitchen counter. Save it to bake this moist and fat free banana bread.

Mukta's Vegan Dinner Rolls
Dinner rolls made with white whole wheat flour. Mukta also notes that she used soymilk and vinegar to replace the egg in the original recipe but feels flax meal replacement would be even better. She has also omitted the optional melted vegan margarine.
Mukta's Vegan Focaccia
Get a taste of Italy at home, by baking this super easy Vegan Focaccia bread.
Mukta's Comments:
The changes I made:

1. I used White Whole Wheat Flour.
2. I skipped the salt. (to limit sodium content)
3. My dough was bit dry and hence I added more water little by little. (approximately 2-4 tablespoon)
4. Before baking, I made many deep holes in the dough with fingers.
5. I baked it in a 9 inch round cake pan.
6. I did not add red chili flakes or any other seasoning. Thus we can not call it a Focaccia Bread but me and my roommates enjoyed it a lot with Indian Style Chick Pea Curry (Chole) and Black Eye Peas Curry.
7. I also like to eat it for my breakfast with homemade Hummus or Peanut Chutney.

Hope you all enjoy this Bread!
