Skinny Funfetti Sugar Cookie Bites are my jam! They make all other desserts look like butter in a bowl. I don’t mean that in a good way folks, so quit drooling! What I mean is, most things that taste this good aren’t good for the body. Those yucky dimples known as cellulite come from “butter in a bowl” desserts. This ain’t one of ’em. And since I try to assist you in moderating your meals, this recipe is low in calories and totally filling. I’m not ashamed to admit that I ate the entire thing in one sitting – it was my breakfast. I repeat: my breakfast.Someone once asked me why I like funfetti so much. I giggled very, very childishly. Then I realized she was not joking. In fact, she was a little offended that I found it so darn hysterical. Anyway, after that I became very specific, trying to give her as much detail as possible. “It’s kind of, like, vanilla-y. It has, like, this soft, warm texture. Is warm a texture? It’s, um, really flavorful. What’s the flavor like? Hmm, oh, colorful? It’s like, a very colorful flavor. No, I’m not just saying that because funfetti appears to be very colorful. It just, uhhh, it tastes like the rainbow. What do you mean that’s Skittles’ thing?” Needless to say, these Skinny Funfetti Sugar Cookie Bites are something you’ll just have to try to understand. Have a funfetti party:
- 3 tablespoons Truvia
- 1/2 cup cake flour (200 calories)
- Sprinkle of salt
- 1/4 teaspoon baking powder
- 1/8 teaspoon baking soda
- 1/2 teaspoon cornstarch (5 calories)
- 1/3 cup regular vanilla yogurt, I used Light & Fit (37 calories, depending)
- 1 1/2 tablespoons liquid eggbeaters or egg-whites (12.5 calories)
- 1 teaspoon I Can't Believe It's Not Butter, "Lite" (13 calories)
- 1/2 teaspoon pure vanilla extract (6 calories)
- 10 white chocolate chips (20 calories)
- 1 teaspoon sprinkles (20 calories)
- Preheat oven to 350F.
- Using a small blender or hand-held mixer, cream butter, Greek Yogurt and sugar/Truvia. After mixing for about 1 minute, add in egg and vanilla.
- In a large bowl, mix together your dry ingredients, excluding sprinkles and chocolate chips.
- Fold wet mix into dry ingredients, stirring well until all ingredients are combined.
- Add in white chocolate chips and sprinkles, stirring carefully so that colors do not run through batter (it's just prettier this way, no worries if it does),
- In a non-stick pan (I took a 9 X 9 pan and used about half of it, marking off other half with non-stick foil), press your dough into it.
- Bake your bites for about 12 - 17 minutes, or until your dough is browned on the top, but not burnt on the edges. You may test to see if your dough is done by jabbing a toothpick through the center. If the toothpick comes out clean without wet batter, your bites have finished! Remember: dry batter is totally okay.
- Remove your funfetti cake and allow it to cool before cutting it into six even-sized squares.
- Top with additional sprinkles if desired.
