Welcome to Tweaked at Chez Jan de la Dayton....translated to 'tweaked at Jan's house in Dayton'! Sounds fancy, but it's not. If you choose to share a recipe, be kind and give me kudos for it. The pictures are NOT to be taken off this blog unless used in a direct link to this blog. Once upon a time I was a Weight Watchers leader....that chapter is closed. But I still like to eat and bake and don't like the weight that finds its way to me too easily. So I go find delicious-sounding recipes and tweak them. Some recipes, however, just don't turn out right if they're tweaked. I've not posted anything....so far.....that isn't WW friendly. That might change, and I'll warn you if I post something with 'scary' P+ values. For those who don't use substitutions, the ratio for Splenda granulated/sugar is 1:1 and the ratio for egg substitute/eggs is 1/4 cup of egg sub = 1 egg. Now.....let's have some fun in the kitchen!!!

Banana Custard

I don't know about you, but I get tired of making banana bread or banana muffins every time I have "funky" bananas that need to be used.  This is so easy to make and has a great flavor.  I think a cool thing would be to let the kids have this for breakfast......they'll think you've lost your marbles! hahaha

Makes 4 Servings
1 Serving = 2 PointsPlus™

1 cup (@3 small) very ripe bananas, puree'd
3/4 cup fat-free egg substitute
1/4 cup Splenda granulated
1/4 tsp salt
1 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp vanilla
1 1/2 cup fat-free milk

Preheat oven to 350º. Spray 4 (7 oz) ramekins. Set aside.

Puree the bananas in a blender or food processor.

Add remaining ingredients and blend/process until well combined.

Pour into the sprayed ramekins.

Place a baking dish on the oven rack. Place the ramekins on the baking dish. Pour HOT water into the baking dish until almost to the top of the ramekins.

Bake 35 – 40 minutes until custard is set on the sides and slightly jiggly in the center.

Carefully remove the ramekins from the water to a rack to cool to room temperature. Cover with plastic and refrigerate until cold.


Now for the 'legal mumbo-jumbo' to keep me out of court!!   *** The PointsPlus™ value for this recipe was calculated by me (Jan Gomes) and is not an endorsement or approval of this recipe by Weight Watchers International, Inc., the owner of the PointsPlus™ registered trademark. ***
