Cheesy marmite pizza

As far as Lo-Dough recipes go, it doesn't get much simple than this. But don't let simplicity fool you - the taste is all there... albeit, as long as you are a marmite-lover!

Kimcheese Toastie

Wednesday Lunch: Gut-Healthy Kimcheese Toastie

The Kimcheese toasted sandwich is a modern-day classic as far as we are concerned. Tasty as hell and full of probiotic goodness... it's almost a perfect lunch. Well, if you are looking to get those calories and carbs down - then making it with Lo-Dough is the way to go. Another added bonus, of course, is that with Lo-Dough, you get a massive hit of fibre - making this sandwich doubly good for your gut health.

Low Calorie Cupcakes

Thursday Dessert: Low-Cal White Chocolate & Raspberry Cupcakes

These gorgeous, sweet and fruity cupcakes are perfect low-cal, high-taste choc treats for when you need that sweet fix. Our low-calorie brownie mix is a just add water affair and after mixing in a teaspoon of baking powder, the cooking method is a 2 minute blast in the microwave (just be sure to use silicone cupcake moulds)

Low carb pizza Napoli

Friday Dinner: Low Cal Pizza Napoli (Anchovy & Caper)

Love them or hate them, you can't deny that anchovies have been linked to pizzas for quite some time. As far as we're concerned, it's a big yes! Their salty, savoury kick combined with the briny tang of capers makes a perfect pizza topping. As with all Lo-Dough recipes, we're looking at something that is incredibly low-calorie, low-carb and high fibre - whilst remaining full-flavoured and satisfying.

cheesy chicken strips

Saturday Dinner: Low-Carb Cheesy Chicken Tenders

Chicken nugget/dippers CAN be made healthy and this recipe is packed with flavour, easy to prepare and completely irresistible! We've combined our Lo-Dough Southern Style Crumb with some crushed down 'Cheesies' - a great popped cheese snack product. If you don't have these to hand, substitute with grated parmesan or cheddar. The combination is just perfect and will coat slices of chicken breast or even thighs, mushrooms or anything you can think of really.

Low calorie brownie lollipops

Sunday Dessert: Brownie Lollipops

Making brownie lollipops is great fun and super simple. Kids (and adults) will love them. Sure, dipping a ball of brownie in a pot of melted chocolate can get a bit messy, but that's all part of the fun, right? Our brownies are low calorie, low carb, gluten free and low in sugar, but still utterly delicious. Check out the recipe for these perfect low calorie sweet treats!
