17 Guilt-free Recipes You Will Not Be Able to Resist ...

Guilt-free recipes are sometimes not easy to come by.

Today, however, I have for you not just one or two healthy recipes, but seventeen.

Recently getting my act together and taking a better approach to eating and snacking, these are some of the guilt-free recipes that have gotten me through.

That… and helping me lose 52lbs since the birth of my baby #girl.

If you work the recipes just right, you will still be able to eat everything that you love.

Here are 17 of my favorite guilt-free recipes.

1. Cinnamon Raisin Scone

If I can wake in the morning with a cup of Creamy Earl Grey alongside a sweet, dreamy scone…life is good.

This recipe is brilliant for the tea sipper who just must have a snack alongside.

Or the person who wants a little hug of sugary sweetness in the morning.

That leaves you feeling like life isn’t too shabby on this new routine of health and happiness.

It's definitely a healthy recipe that will have your mind and scale both fooled.

Ingredients:

Scones:

1 cup unbleached all-purpose flour

1 cup whole wheat flour

1/4 cup brown sugar

3 Tbsp baking powder

1/2 tsp.

salt

3 Tbsp cold light butter

1/4 cup fat-free milk

2 tsp.

vanilla extract

1 tsp.

cinnamon

2 eggs

1/2 cup raisins (microwave with a teaspoon of water to plump)

**Glaze:

**1/2 cup powdered sugar

2 tsp.

fat-free milk

1/4 tsp.

vanilla extract

Directions:

Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.

Mix together flour, brown sugar, baking powder, and salt.

Cut in cold butter, using a pastry cutter or two knives, until mixture is in coarse crumbs.

Add in milk, vanilla extract, cinnamon and slightly beaten egg and mix until blended.

Lay dough out on a lightly floured surface and add in raisins, kneading dough just a few times to combine.

Then form dough into a 9-inch disc (about 3/4-inch thick).

Using a pizza cutter (because that's all I had), slice dough into 12 equal pieces.

Bake for about 15 minutes and allow to cool.

Meanwhile, whisk together powdered sugar, milk and vanilla extract in a bowl until smooth and then drizzle over cooled scones.

Enjoy!
