Tasty low fat ladybug cupcakes with a new cooking dessert recipe.With the high obesity rate among children these days it is never too late to begin teaching them to eat healthier.
You can easily do this by simply offering more choices of vegetables and fresh fruits, avoiding fast food places, and cooking foods that are low in fats and calories. However, this doesn't mean that you have to take away all those fun foods of childhood.
Finding ways of making those snacks, treats and desserts with less fat can help reduce calories and help protect your child's heart health. Here is a recipe for Ladybug Cupcakes that your children will love, is low in fat, and fun for everyone children and adults alike.
For this recipe use a organic chocolate cake recipe. Replace the oil with the same amount of low fat plain or vanilla yogurt. In place of the whole eggs use one whole egg and the rest egg white (2 whites for every whole egg called for.) If the mix calls for 2 eggs then use 1 whole egg and 2 egg whites.
The yogurt not only has less saturated fat than the cooking oil but, it also contains vitamin D which is good for children. Replacing some of the whole egg with egg white will add protein to the dessert without adding so much fat and cholesterol.
Bake as directed on the package and allow to cool. If you use yellow muffin cups these can serve as the ladybug's belly.
