Cottage Cheese Bread
I love using my slow cooker for wonderful breads like this. It is so convenient.
1 cup fat-free cottage cheese 3/4 cup skim milk
4 ounces Egg Beaters (or 4 egg whites) 1 teaspoon vanilla


cup sugar


cups reduced-fat baking mix
    1/2 cup raisins or dried cranberries

Preheat a slow cooker on high while you prepare the recipe (at least 10 minutes).
Spray the slow cooker with nonfat cooking spray.
In a bowl mix together the cottage cheese, Egg Beaters, sugar, milk, vanilla, baking mix, and cranberries.
Pour the mixture in the slow cooker, cover, and cook on high for 2 hours.

Sweet Corn Bread
Who would ever think corn bread that tastes this good could be cooked in a slow cooker? 


cup Egg Beaters

Spray a slow cooker with nonfat cooking spray and preheat for 10 minutes.
In a large bowl combine the Egg Beaters, milk, and sugar.
Add the butter substitute and salt, if using. Mix thoroughly.
Add the baking mix and cornmeal and stir until well mixed.
Pour the mixture into the slow cooker.
