Healthy Homemade Ladyfingers
Ladyfingers — a classic cookie/biscuit that is shaped like a finger (sort of, haha). When people hear Ladyfingers they usually think of Tiramisu or Trifles because not many people eat the snack on its own. Surprise though, these Ladyfingers are delicious on their own! They aren’t super crunchy and crumbly like the dried up crispy kinds that you would find at the grocery store. And here’s another surprise: they’re healthy!
Yes, I said it. These Ladyfingers are healthy. I based this recipe off of my Soft Sugar Cookie recipe because I knew that the recipe would work successfully (and you know how unlucky I am in the kitchen sometimes (it took me 14 trials to perfect this single-serving chocolate cake recipe and 9 trials to perfect my red velvet cake recipe!)
Firm on the outside and spongy on the inside. Perfect for snacking and perfect for layering in desserts like tiramisu and trifles!
Here is the nutrition label PROOF that these homemade Ladyfingers are better for you. Here, I compare the nutrition label for the Food Network Ladyfinger recipe and the nutrition labels for my recipe. Food Network’s nutrition label is on the left, the DWB eggless recipe label is in the middle, the DWB recipe label using the egg is on the right:
As you can see, the DWB versions are so much better for you! Compared to the Food Network recipe, my homemade Ladyfingers are lower calorie, less than or equal to HALF the fat (and lower unhealthy saturated fat), sugar free, higher fiber and high protein. That means that these homemade Ladyfingers will keep you fuller for longer than those processed, sugary “things” at the grocery store.
So make these. Now.
I said MAKE THEM NOW!! ;D
