Up until about six months ago, I’d never purchased egg whites. I’d cooked the occasional recipe that called for them, but I would just separate them myself and inevitably waste the egg yolk. Then my husband and I started on a special eating program that focuses on protein in every meal. That’s when egg whites suddenly became my best friend! They are required in many of the recipes, which is good with me once I learned that a single serving only has 5 grams of protein, 0 grams of fat and only 25 calories!
AllWhites Egg Whites are a great option for any recipe that calls for eggs, not just egg whites. They’re easy to find (in the refrigerated dairy section of any grocery store) and come in an easy to use, easy to store carton. I just pull mine out of the fridge and pour the required amount out as I’m cooking.
Speaking of cooking, the AllWhites Egg Whites Favorites is packed full of great low-fat recipes, from yummy desserts to appetizers and delicious main dishes. I decided to try out the Apple Cranberry Icebox Cookies recipe. My family loves cookies, and I love the idea of a cookie that is low-fat and healthy. I also love that I can freeze them and easily cut a few off to make a quick snack or dessert for the kiddos.
After mixing all the ingredients together, just roll out the dough into a log, wrap up in wax paper and freeze for at least three hours. I froze mine overnight and then cut off a few cookies to try out the next morning.
I made half the cookies with just the dried fruit, and then decided to add some chocolate chips to the other half of the dough. The cookies were delicious either way, but a little chocolate never hurt anything (except my waistline).
