These muffins are so tasty. I add extra bananas and decrease the sugar. They are healthier and still good.

Healthier Oven Roasted Potatoes

Rating: 4.58 stars
This roasted potato side dish, made with less olive oil and more fresh herbs than the original recipe, is a healthy hit with everyone.

Healthier Best Brownies

Rating: 4.21 stars
With so much chocolate flavor in the brownies and in the frosting, you'd never guess this version is actually healthier than the average brownie!

Healthier Easy Sugar Cookies

Rating: 4.4 stars
I love this recipe. I could eat at least ten in one sitting which is why I exchanged some butter with non-fat plain yogurt. They still taste great and I feel a lot better about eating so many.

Healthier Amazing Pork Tenderloin in the Slow Cooker

Rating: 4.14 stars
This pork tenderloin soaks up the yummy juices as it cooks. And the juices are healthier in this version of the recipe because we replaced the dry onion soup mix with fresh ingredients.

Healthier Broiled Tilapia Parmesan

Rating: 4.76 stars
This is my favorite tilapia recipe ever! I want to eat it every day. I make it a little healthier by using lite mayo and less butter.

Healthier Good Old Fashioned Pancakes

Rating: 3.98 stars
I loved this pancake recipe. Way better than a mix at the store but I wanted to cut a little of the fat. I make them with less butter, egg whites instead of a whole egg, and nonfat milk. They are so fluffy and tasty plus I feel great about giving them to my family.

Healthier Mom's Zucchini Bread

Rating: 4.47 stars
We packed even more zucchini into Mom's wonderfully moist and flavorful bread. Could there be a better way to eat your veggies?

Healthier Baked Pork Chops I

Rating: 4.46 stars
I make this wonderful recipe all the time and found that it is a lot better to not pan fry the chops in oil. Baking makes it a lot better for you and still tastes great.
