Chocolate Bran Muffins 1 Point
Pam Wilson & Lynne Christy
Mix and let sit for 10 mins:
3 cups All Bran ( cereal)
2 1/2 cups warm water or coffee (regular or decaf)
1 tsp. vanilla
1 1/2 tsp. baking powder
1 box Krusteaz Fat Free Brownie Mix ( prepare as directed on the box)
Bake @ 350 for 30 minutes
makes 24 muffins. They are best if they sit in fridge in baggie over night.
I have also put a packet of splenda in the chocolate ones.
I have used the Fat Free blueberry and the Cranberry-orange mixes. I add extra fresh or frozen blueberries to the blueberry and extra cranberries to the cranberry.

Carolyn's Gelatin Cheesecake
1 (12-ounce) container low-fat (1 percent) cottage cheese

2 (0.3-ounce) boxes sugar free
strawberry gelatin, plus 1 box (recommended: Jell-O)
2 ready-made light graham cracker crusts
1 pint fresh strawberries, plus extra for garnish
1 (8-ounce) container frozen light whipped topping, thawed

Put cottage cheese in a blender. Make 2 boxes of the gelatin, using 1 cup of hot and 1 cup of cold water. At once, before it jells, add to cottage cheese. Blend until smooth. Pour evenly into crusts and refrigerate until set. Cut up fruit and place on top of pie. Make remaining package of gelatin as per instructions on box. Pour it on top of fruit and put it in refrigerator until set. Put whipped topping on top. Garnish with more fruit. This makes 2 pies. 3 to 4 POINTS per 1/8th of the pie.
