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!

  • 2 sargento Colby jack cheese sticks

For sides:

  • Fresh broccoli (1-2 heads)
  • Orzo

Directions:

  • Preheat oven to 350

Hello Fresh Meal Review 👌🏻💯

  

I recently received a meal service box from Hello Fresh (healthy recipes delivered to your door, you pick your menu and serving size, they have different plans to choose from to meet your needs, it also ships free) and I was really nervous to see how I’d like it and if my food would actually arrive cold or not. 😬 It arrived on the day as shipping noted and to my surprised I opened everything up and it was all packaged very nicely, separated by recipes into boxes 📦 (if you’re big on organizing then this will make you happy). Everything was very cold and looked wonderful! 

The box came with ingredient/recipe cards for each meal as well. I received 2 meals: Shrimp and Sausage Gumbo and Holy Moly Spinach Artichoke Ravoli. 

  

Spinach Ravoli was filling and very good, and easy to make! 

  

Gumbo was SO good, it was very different and full of flavor, also easy to make! 

Overall I really loved this box, you can skip meals and order when you want so you’re not locked in and if it’s not for you it takes 30 seconds to cancel on line!
