Chocolate Banana Souffles

These are little bowls of heaven, so creamy and rich.

Ingredients

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 400 °F (205° C). Coat 4, 6 oz ramekins with butter flavored cooking spray. Place on a baking sheet.
  2. In a medium bowl, mash bananas and vanilla together.
  3. Sift cornstarch and cocoa powder over bananas and stir well.
  4. In another medium bowl, beat egg whites with sugar until they form soft peaks.
  5. Fold 1/3 of egg whites into banana mixture. When incorporated, fold in the rest of the egg whites.
  6. Spoon mixture into ramekins. Wipe the top 1/4 inch “collar” of the ramekin to remove any excess batter so that the souffle will rise straight. Place ramekins on a baking sheet.
  7. Bake for 15 minutes. Serve immediately.

LOW FAT BUTTERMILK RANCH DRESSING!!!

Low-fat Buttermilk Ranch Dressing

A creamy low-fat ranch dressing made with buttermilk and fresh herbs. Perfect to serve with end-of-summer garden vegetables!
There is nothing better than homemade dressing, store bought dressing just doesn’t do it for me. Serve this over your favorite garden salad or dip your favorite veggies in it.
I slightly modified this recipe from my friend Susan’s blog Farmgirl Fare. I love her blog, she is a former California city chick turned Missouri farm girl, complete with chickens, sheep and donkeys! I often tell her how lucky she is to have her own farm fresh eggs and fresh produce, and she often tells me how lucky I am to live near a Trader Joe’s. You can easily halve this recipe and leftovers can be stored in the fridge for about 4-5 day. Enjoy!!
