Bombshell Approved Cheat Meal
Remember all of your favorite foods that you loved as a kid? Well who says you can’t have them now too. Enjoy making this with your family or friends. The kids will love being involved in it. Let them crush the cereal or shake the bag. Mine like pressing their thumb in the cookies to add the jelly. Just enjoy the togetherness. Maybe choose a great kid movie to watch too.

SKINNY MAC n CHEESE
- 2 cups Cauliflower florets
- 1 cup Whole Wheat or Gluten Free Noodles of Choice (uncooked measurement)
- 1 Egg
- 3/4 cup Unsweetened Almond Milk
- 1/2 tsp Mustard
- 1/4 tsp Garlic powder
Salt and Pepper to taste
- 3/4 cup Grated reduced fat sharp cheddar
- 2 tbs Grated Parmesan cheese
- 1/4 cup Low fat cottage cheese or Low Fat Greek Yogurt
- 1 cup Broccoli Florets steamed (optional)
Preheat oven to 450 degrees. Spray 4 individual baking dishes or 1 medium dish with non-stick spray. Place baking dishes on a baking sheet to make it easier to remove from the oven.
Bring a large pot of water to a boil. Cook the cauliflower until very soft (about 10 minutes). Remove cauliflower and add the pasta to the same water. Cook pasta per instructions. Drain pasta and set aside.
In a bowl, combine the egg, milk, mustard, and garlic powder. In the pot used to cook the noodles, (which should now be empty), pour the egg mixture and cheeses (except parmesan cheese) in. Cook cheese and egg mixture over medium-low heat, whisking constantly, until the cheese melts and the sauce begins to thicken. This will take about 5 minutes.
Blend the cheese sauce with the cauliflower in a blender until smooth. Add the pasta to the sauce and broccoli if using and stir. You may season with salt and pepper if you’d like to.
Scoop the macaroni evenly divided into the serving dishes. Sprinkle the Parmesan cheese on top of each. Bake macaroni for 15 minutes, or until Parmesan becomes golden brown. Remove and let cool for about 5 minutes. This is a good time to cook the chicken while it’s cooling.
Ingredients (Makes 8 small cookies)
- 1/2 cup peanut butter
- 1/4 cup vanilla whey protein powder
- 2 egg whites
- 1 tsp baking powder
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- 4 TB Any Flavor sugar free jelly or jam
Mix everything together in a bowl. I like to mix wet ingredients (egg whites and peanut butter) together first to make mixing easier.
Roll dough into 8 equal size balls. Place on a non-stick sprayed baking sheet.
Press thumb into each cookie and put 1/2TB jelly into each.
Bake until cookies are golden brown. Will be about 11-15 minutes at 425 degrees.
These cookies spread a bit but not that much in the oven.
