Lowfat Honey-Pecan Cream Cheese Spread

Print Friendly

I confess we enjoy a good toasted bagel every now and again. I usually can eat only a half of a large bagel. Occasionally we can find mini-bagels and those work great for me!

There are so many flavors to pick nowadays. My favorites are cinnamon-raisin and French Toast bagels. Normally I pick my bagels up at the supermarket, but who hasn’t had a tasty bagel from that famous bread store who also has great broccoli cheddar soup? Thanks to them, I also developed a fondness for the Honey-Nut spread they sell.

I can pick-up some pretty decent substitutes for the spread at the supermarket, but they aren’t lowfat.

So, over the weekend I decided to experiment and make my own. (Tall & Handsome has been home recovering from surgery, so he really digs anything homemade when he’s mending.)

Since my favorite spread is the Honey – Nut, that’s what I decided to attempt to make. FYI, you can half this recipe very easily. I made it this size so I could send some over to my parents since my little Momma had been feeling puny, also.

T & H gave it an “outstanding”. I will add he also said it would be great on toast.

Lowfat Honey – Pecan Cream Cheese Spread

2 – 8 ounce packages of lowfat cream cheese, at room temperature

4 tablespoons honey

2 tablespoons light brown sugar, packed

1 teaspoon molassess

1 teaspoon pure vanilla flavoring

6 tablespoons chopped pecans

  1. Place lowfat cream cheese in a medium mixing bowl. With an electric mixer beat cream cheese until softened.
  2. Add the remaining ingredients except the pecans. On low speed combine the mixture until all ingredients are well mixed.
  3.  Add chopped pecans. Using low speed combine just until pecans are evenly distributed.
  4. Poor into a container with a lid and place in the refrigerator to allow it to set.

This makes a little more than 16 ounces.

Enjoy!!
