We looooove coffee... so we whipped up three fantastic java-inspired recipes. Even if you don't like straight coffee or can't have the caffeinated stuff (you can easily use decaf in these recipes, and one uses no coffee at all), you'll likely dig these crazy-tasty treats...
Joe Cool Ice Cream Freeze!

PER SERVING (1 coffee cake): 124 calories, 2g fat, 209mg sodium, 27g carbs, 4g fiber, 11g sugars, 3g protein = PointsPlus® value 3*
(We'd really love to say something about these, but we're too busy stuffing our faces with 'em...)
For Cakes 2 cups moist-style yellow cake mix (1/2 of an 18.25-oz. box) 3/4 cup fat-free sour cream 1/4 cup fat-free liquid egg substitute 2 oz. (1/4 cup) Torani Sugar Free Syrup, Hazelnut 1 tsp. cinnamon
For Crumb Topping 1 1/2 cups Fiber One Original bran cereal 1/4 cup fat-free liquid egg substitute 1/4 cup no-sugar-added applesauce 3 tbsp. Splenda No Calorie Sweetener, granulated 1 tbsp. brown sugar (not packed) 1 tbsp. cinnamon
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
In a food processor or blender, grind Fiber One to a breadcrumb-like consistency. Transfer crumbs to a dish, and add all other topping ingredients. Stir well, until mixture is completely mixed and crumbly. Set aside.
Mix all cake ingredients together until thoroughly blended and free of lumps.
Spray a 12-cup muffin pan with nonstick spray. Evenly distribute batter among the cups. Bake for 10 minutes, and then remove pan from oven.
Using your fingers to help form the crumbs, evenly top each cake with crumb mixture, lightly pressing crumbs into cake tops so they stick. Return pan to the oven, and bake for 5 minutes longer. Allow to cool before removing cakes from the pan.

HG Tip! If you have trouble finding Torani SF Syrup, head to a Starbucks (or another fully stocked coffee joint) and order a few shots of the sugar-free stuff to go.

Frozen, creamy flavored coffee pops?! Weeeeee!
HG Heads Up! Get your paws on a 3-ounce-per-pop ice pop mold, ASAP! Or simply use 4 small plastic cups, cover 'em with tinfoil, and slide a Popsicle stick thru the foil to make your pops (easy!).
