DIY Taco Cones

These unique tacos are the perfect way to make taco night quick and portable! They can even be prepped ahead! Such a creative, fun twist on traditional tacos – and they’re great for taco bar parties and tailgates, too!

Another terrific thing about them is how nutritious they are – lots of healthy upgrades!

For one thing, we swapped out a more traditional tortilla for a Flatout, which is loaded with protein and fiber-rich whole grains.

Then, there’s the taco meat itself. We recommend using the very leanest ground beef you can find, or if you prefer, you can use very lean ground turkey.

Plus, the taco meat has lots of nutritious vegetables mixed in: garlic and plenty of onions, black beans, corn, and a jar of lycopene-rich salsa.

And that’s before you even begin layering in the toppings. Be sure to include plenty of fresh veggies to finish these off – maybe diced tomatoes and thinly sliced romaine lettuce, for starters.

Notice that this recipe is intended to be adjustable. Precisely how many cones you’ll want to make and how far you can stretch the taco meat will depend on a variety of factors, including how tightly you wrap the cones, how many toppings you include along with the taco meat, and how high you pile on the toppings (hint: for mess-free portability, don’t pile them too high).

No matter how you make them, these are sure to be a hit! Taco night, reinvented … portable, more fun, and healthier than ever!

Raspberry Stuffed French Toast

We all need something a little bit fancy every now and then, and this flatbread French toast, stuffed with raspberries and melty cream cheese definitely qualifies!

This flatbread recipe is a huge contender for our household’s B.B.E., or Best Brunch Ever, award. While I’m usually more of a savory breakfast person, who would totally eat leftover Chinese food or black beans and rice with my morning coffee, my better half likes it sweet and fruity every time.

We meet in the middle with this recipe, though. Black beans and rice are fine and good, but when raspberries appear they win hands down. Raspberries just make any morning special.

And can we talk about pomegranate molasses? I learned about using it on pancakes as a substitute for maple syrup from my friend Amalia years ago, and I haven’t looked back. (Sometimes I even mix the two together a bit!) Pomegranate molasses is used in Middle Eastern cuisine and adds a delicious bit of tartness to sweeter breakfasts like French toast, pancakes, and waffles. It’s easy to find in specialty groceries and lasts forever in the refrigerator, but it won’t take you that long to use a bottle, I bet. I use pomegranate molasses in this other savory flatbread recipe, in case you need inspiration…

My mouth is watering just thinking about making this delicious breakfast! Lightly flavored with lemon, the cream cheese and raspberry mixture, warm and soft inside the toasty flatbread is pure heaven on a plate. A recipe like this, made in the comfort of our own home, can be the perfect antidote to a hectic week. A little French press coffee, some French toast, lots of raspberries, and a little pomegranate molasses is all we need for B.B.E. I hope the weekend comes soon!

Berry Hand Pie

Reaching for fruits and veggies like berries that have red and purple hues may help your health!

Flatout flatbread makes a perfect crust for this baked berry hand pie using only one tablespoon of sugar. At 5 WW® SmartPoints® value per serving, you can have pie every day, if you like! Grab those berries and get to baking!

Easy Chicken Pot Pie Hand Pies

These hand pies are ideal for grab-and-go meals! They’re loaded with veggies and chicken, wrapped in a thyme-accented crust – all the homestyle goodness of traditional pot pies, but healthier and totally portable!

With all the buttery pie crust and rich filling in a typical pot pie, it’s definitely not exactly a nutritious meal. This version changes all that! It’s filled with nutrients from lots of tasty (kid-friendly) veggies and chunks of chicken. There’s also a rich, creamy (yet much lower-fat!) sauce, too.

Plus, there’s a so-much-healthier crust, deliciously seasoned with thyme and a sprinkling of salt. What’s terrific about the herby goodness on the crust is that, even when you nibble your way to the crispy edges where there isn’t very much filling, you still get flavorful bites of lightly browned crust. Yum!

These also freeze well, too, so you can stock the freezer for busy nights! Just pop them in the oven (straight from frozen!), and you’re out the door in no time!

Thai Peanut Wraps

Following a vegetarian diet with diabetes can be a great way to help fight against heart disease. However, many vegetarian recipes can also be high in carbohydrate. To prevent a spike in blood sugar levels, make sure your plant-based menu is rich in fiber and protein with recipes like this Thai Peanut Wrap. By using a reduced carbohydrate, high fiber Flatout flatbread in replacement of a standard wrap high in refined carbohydrates, you can ensure more controlled blood sugar levels after the meal. The addition of protein from edamame along with healthy fats from the peanuts will provide an additional benefit in regulating blood sugar while warding off hunger.

David Dial of Spiced makes eating the veggie rainbow exciting again with his flatbread recipe for a Thai flavored peanut flatbread wrap that travels well between bonspiels. Don’t know what a bonspiel is? Then make sure to read our Q&A with David regarding all things curling, a winter sport he loves to play. In the meantime, grab some flatbreads and make this wrap! Thanks, David!

Mango Chocolate Hearts

Love is in the air! Mango and chocolate love, that is. If you’re wondering how you can properly celebrate Valentine’s Day and still be true to your caloric intake, try these heart shaped flatbread sandwich cookies filled with mango preserves (or any fruit you wish) and dipped in deep, dark chocolate. A little goes a long way.

Last year my mom bought me a bag of chocolate dipped mango slices. I have to say, at first, I was dubious. Mango and chocolate, really? But then my better half dug into the bag and fell on the grenade. He bit into one and slowly made his way, with the bag, into the next room. When I tracked him down, I could tell he loved them- and so did I. The bag soon disappeared into the ether.

Those chocolate dipped mangoes no longer exist, but in the spirit of love, I used those treats as inspiration for this flatbread recipe. You need a little something with your sweetheart to celebrate. And these little beauties are meant to be shared with your parents, kids, aunts, uncles, neighbors, whomever you’re close to and want to give a little love.

Because, as the talented Dionne Warwick used to sing: what the world needs now, is love, sweet love. It’s the only thing there’s just too little of… No, not just for some, but for everyone. I think this is especially true right now.

So make a batch of these little valentines and prepare to share the love.
