Dr Oz: 5-Layer Dessert Recipe

On today’s show, Doctor Oz showed you that you can actually have dessert and still lose weight. Gail Simmons from Top Chef came to the show to prepare her Dr Oz Approved 5-Layer Flat Belly Dessert. Just typing that made me hungry!

Gail, the host of Top Chef’s: Just Desserts, told Dr Oz that when she was on set, she would eat15 desserts a day. (Wow! Are they hiring?)

    I saw the show, and I have been very excited about preparing this dessert. However, what is the breakdown in fat, sugar, fiber, and protein? Thanks so much for sharing.

    I made this wonderful desert today and we just finished a one cup serving each. It was wonderful! Not too sweet, and VERY filling. I did not want any more either….I baked the cake on a cookie sheet for 15 minutes and cut it in half. I then just cut the peices to fit evenly in a large spring pan because I didn’t have a trifle bowl. It worked just fine. I would recomend this recipe to anyone-enjoy!

    I was excited about trying this recipe. After tasting it though, I was very disappointed with it. It was edible but the oats,flaxseed,& coconut combination made it tase like something you would serve in a bucket to a horse. No one in my household liked it either. It was a little costly considering the outcome and leftover ingredients I probably will not use again and wind up throughing the cake away.

    Watching Dr. Oz today sharing healthy snacks and weight loss tips, all of which seemed very beneficial, we were confused by the commercials for Jack in the Box’s “All American Jack Combo” double decker cheeseburger, fries and coke; Red Lobster’s 4 Course Seafood Feast; Chili’s Triple Dipper!!! We understand the necessity of advertising, however it seems hypocritical and counter-productive to bombard us with such poor choices. I wish the producers would step up to the (healthier) plate and find different sponsors.

    I just copied the recipe and intend to make it tonight, however, for the crunchy layer I intend to use ! c of walnuts, 1/2 c of flax-seed, and 1/2 c of almonds. The rest sounds so delicious, I don’t mind if everyone isn’t in love with it, I’m making it for me. If every one in my family also likes it, that’s a bonus! (:

    I did not have the agape syrup so used truvia and sugar free blueberry syrup to sweeten cheese mix. Also used sugar free devils food cake mix. Was very filling we had it for lunch one cup each and were full. It was a lot of food so next time I’ll cut it in half.

    Like Katie, I, too, would like a breakdown of the nutritional values of this 5-layer flat belly dessert….calories, sugars, carbs, fat, protein, etc.

  8. says

    If you go to caloriecount.com you can add all of the ingredient’s up from the recipe, and all of the calories will come up, and you can figure out the calories, nutrition etc yourself!

  9. says

    Okay, went through caloriecount.com to get the individual ingredients figured out; however, how many cups does this dessert make?

  10. Lu says

    In a word YUCK. This is the most awful thing I have ever tasted. It is not good and very expensive to make. If you are looking for something sweet and delicious, this isn’t it. I actually tossed my piece in the garbage.
