This chocolate treat is quick and easy to make. I don't like to sacrifice taste even when I'm watching my weight. This recipe is perfect for those times when I'm craving chocolate, but I don't want all of the extra calories. Update 9/1/08: Despite what one reviewer states, my posting of this recipe was in no way meant to "fool" you. I do cut mine in 36 pieces. It is perfect for those times when I am craving chocolate. If I can't control my cravings then I just better not make them. Weight Watchers, or any diet, is about portion control and nothing is going to be low-fat or good for you if you eat too much of it.
This is out of a Weight Watchers cookbook called "Two's Company". I always double it and freeze them. DH gave them an excellent rating. They are easy to make and oh so good! 4 pointplus per scone. Hope you enjoy! Update: Just made these again tonight. You can use any dried fruit like, apricots (my favorite), dates, raisins etc. I add the dried fruit to the flour mixture before adding the yogurt. I plan to make them with dried apples, adding a touch of cinnamon and topping them with cinnamon sugar. I also use 1/2 the sugar on top.
When I attended my first weight watchers meeting and the leader shared this recipe, my first thought was "right!". There was no way I was going to believe this was good, AND low in points. Eventually I had to try it though. Now my DH who wants nothing to do with pumpkin OR lite anything, had a fit over these cupcakes. Of course he still doesn't know the truth and I'm not about to tell him! (weight watchers points = 1) I did try making it as a cake in a 9-13 pan and the center stays way too moist, so I recommend the muffin method. Perfect for when nothing will do but chocolate! UPDATE: One reviewer suggested using 1/4 cup of water to get a more cake-like consistency and it works great. 1/2 cup of water will produce a denser and richer texture. Whatever you choose, enjoy!
Believe it or not, this light cake stays fresh in the fridge up to two weeks assuming it lasts that long! I personally like it any time of the year but it is particularly good in the summer or whenever you need something light and refreshing but without all of the extra calories. Enjoy!
An easy to make lightened up dessert using Butterfingers. Yum! 4 WW points per serving. Received at a WW meeting.
A recent reviewer recently made the comment that this was 7 WW points not 4. Please remember that Recipe Zaar's calculations and WW's do not always agree. This recipe came straight from WW--it is on their website. They do have it listed as 4 points, despite the difference if you try to calculate using Recipe Zaar's calculator. Please use your own judgment, but note this is a real WW recipe and it is listed by them as 4 pts.
I want my cake and I want to eat it too. AND I can. The idea came from the Hungry Girl website. I could not find her exact recipe so this is what I came up with. Now the cake does not rise up like normal cakes do. But, the flavor and moistness is awesome. It has the texture of a bread pudding,
I did make a light sour cream glaze with pecans for the top and that added 2 points if you use the whole amount I usually only use half so I figure one point. Will list that recipe also.
I got this recipe at a Weight Watcher meeting. This is a delicious recipe that is low if fat and high in fiber. It is loved by even the pickiest eaters (my dd and dh included). Each muffin is only 1 point!
This is a simple and delicious treat that's great as a side item during dinner or even dessert. I like to eat them for breakfast, as breakfast is hard to fit into a diet. Each serving is only 2 weight watchers points! (borrowed from splenda.com)
