Weight Watchers Chocolate Chip Granola Barsย 


If anyone struggles with finding Granola bars or any sweets for that matter that are nut free you will love these! My kids were already asking for a second bar as they were still eating their first, lol. ๐Ÿ˜

Servings:

  • 15 bars 
  • 3 Weight Watchers Points Plus per bar
  • 8 Weight Watchers Smart Points per bar

Here’s what you need:

  • 2 cups Trader Joe’s Rolled Oats
  • 1 cup rice krispy cereal
  • 1/4 cup honey 
  • 1/3 cup light brown sugar
  • 4 tbsp unsalted butter
  • 3 tbsp mini chocolate chips

Mix Oats and rice crispy into a large bowl and stir together.

In small sauce pan add brown sugar, butter and honey and heat until sugar melted and slightly bubbling. 

Place parchment or wax paper into a 8 inch baking pan or a 9 inch pie pan. 

Pour sauce into oats and rice krispys and stir together until everything is coated. 

Pour into baking dish, use a piece of wax/parchment paper to press down the mixture so it’s packed well (you don’t want it to fall apart). Pour chocolate chips to the top and gently press them in with the parchment/wax paper. 

Place in fridge for 1-2 hours (I did 2) so they are firm upon cutting. 

Store in a seal tight container in fridge. 

Enjoy!

Zero Carbs Pizza Chips

ย 

Pizza lovers this is for you! ๐Ÿ•๐Ÿ•๐Ÿ•

ZERO CARBS! ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿป๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป๐Ÿ’๐Ÿผ

  • 20 pepperoni slices
  • 2 mozzarella string cheeseย 

Bake at 400 for 3-7 minutes pending on how crispy you want them! I did the full 7 and they were crisp (hence the brownish color) and tasted like bacon!!

I found some Ragu Pizza Sauce at the store but I felt the carbs were too high, 3 carbs per 1/4 cup. So I opted not to dip mine in the sauce but you can dip for the full pizza experience. My family really loved these too, we ate them up within a few minutes!ย 

Low Carb Cheese Crisps

  
Low Carb as in ZERO Carbs (pending on what cheese you use)

Drop a dollop of cheese onto a baking dish with parchment paper (do not use wax paper this will end badly, trust me, lol). If you don’t have parchment paper then you can spray oil on the baking dish. 

These cook really fast, in about 5 mins or so, remove them with a metal spatula and allow to cool. They taste like crispy Cheezits, so yummy! My kids love them! Enjoy!
