Maple Rolls with Cheesecake Icing

Tuesday, January 18, 2011

I have finally gotten into the 150's today and I am looking forward to my next goal which is the 140's. I just want every day to go by faster and faster so I would be closer to goal, but the more I think about it, the slower time goes. Isn't that always the way. I think it is time for me to keep my mind occupied so that I won't think about how slow time is going. What are your favorite hobbies and interests? I can't wait to start exercising after 2 more weeks!

I am still looking for ways to get rid of my oatmeal and I found this recipe at http://www.defragged.com/. This recipe used up three of my maple brown sugars which was fine by me. It made three medifast meals. The taste was not too sweet, but what really made the recipe stand out is the cream cheese icing. The original recipe called for a packet of true lemon, but I left it out and it tasted fine to me. This recipe does have two healthy fats which is the regular cream cheese, so you have to be careful what you decide to have for dinner. I had shrimp with Walden Farms Alfredo Sauce so I won't be needing my healthy fats for the day with steamed broccoli. The reason I did not use fat free cream cheese is because it isn't recommended because it has higher carbs than low fat cream cheese. I did not use low fat cream cheese is because it would be two additional condiments on top of the two condiments it already had which would bring it up to 4 condiments per meal! It is better to use the regular cream cheese as a healthy fat. Enjoy!


Maple Rolls with Cheesecake Icing
Slightly adapted from www.defragged.com

Ingredients:
3 packets of Medifast Maple and Brown Sugar Oatmeal (3 Meals)
3/4 tsp baking powder (1 1/2 Condiments)
1 tsp maple extract (1 Condiment)
1 packet Splenda (1 Condiment)
1 tsp vanilla extract (1 Condiment)
1/4 cup water added slowly

Directions:
Mix all dry ingredients and then add vanilla and water slowly. I used just over 1/4 cup of water. The dough should stick together but be not too dry or too wet.
Divide dough into 3 balls approximately the same size. Place on greased cookie sheet (non-fat cooking spray) and flatten so they are approximately 1/4 to 1/2 inch thick. I used three individual glass dishes such as Pyrex because the dough was too crumbly. Bake at 350 degrees for approximately 15 minutes. Insert toothpick to determine if it is done. It should come out clean and the edges should be firm, but not too dry. Let cool.
