Black Bean Zucchini Rice Skillet


Super easy, only 5 ingredients and a great Meatless Monday option! This keeps me full without feeling super heavy as well.

  • 🔥4 Weight Watchers Points Plus 
  • Makes 6 servings

Here’s what you need: 

  • 1/2 cup uncooked brown rice 
  • 1 can black beans, drained/rinsed
  • 1 can Rotel tomatoes
  • 1 large zucchini 
  • 1/2 shredded cheddar cheese 

Use spray oil to grease pan, add zucchini, sautée for 5 minutes.

Add in rice, tomatoes, black beans and 1/2 cup water. 

Stir well. Cover and let simmer until rice is cooked. 

Tip: I used to boil in a bag rice (removed from bag and poured into pan) because it cooks faster so it took me about 10 minutes to simmer. 

Once ready top with cheese.

Egg Free Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Cookies with WW points


I’m not much of a baker, at all, so when I make cookies I always worry a little, lol. To my surprise these came out great, they may not be pretty but they taste fantastic! 

Here’s what you need:

  • 2 cups rolled oats (or quick oats)
  • 1 1/2 cups flour
  • 3/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1 cup butter
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/4 cup hot water
  • 1 cup semi sweet chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 350

Place butter, sugar and vanilla into mixing bowl, using a mixer, mix until fluffy. 

Add flour and salt, mix well.

Add baking soda into water and stir well, add to mix. (If not all of the baking soda comes out of the cup just add a touch more of water to get it out).

Stir in oats and chocolate chips. 

Drop by teaspoon full unto a greased baking sheet, cook for about 7-8 mins.

This makes 36 cookies 🍪 and they are 5 Weight Watchers Smart Points per cookie.

Weight Watchers Apple Cinnamon Breakfast Bake


You know by now if you follow my blog I like to keep my recipes very simple, this is another one of those! My little guy has an egg allergy so I traded in the eggs for flax, I’ll put both variations in here but the WW Smart Points are with using the flax in place of the eggs, so keep that in mind when tracking. 

Here’s what you need:

  • 2 cups rolled oats (I used Trader Joe’s but any will do)
  • 2 apples, any kind, chopped
  • 2 cups of reduced fat milk (or whatever suits your family)
  • 3 eggs (egg substitute: 3 tbsp milled flax seed & 5 tbsp water, set aside in bowl for 5 mins, stirred well)
  • 1 oz craisins or raisins 
  • 1 tbsp vanilla
  • 1 tsp cinnamon 
  • 1 1/2 tbsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt

Preheat oven to 325. Mix all dry ingredients together first, then add all wet ingredients, apples and craisins, mix well. Pour into greased baking dish, I used a 9×13. Bake 30-40 minutes or until sides and topped have a light brown color. 

  • Weight Watchers Smart Points: 7
  • Makes 8 servings 

💖 Refrigerate leftovers, reheat each serving in microwave for 1-2 mins, I added about a tbsp of vanilla almond milk on top of mine to give some extra moisture to it. So yummy!
