Weight Watchers Chocolate Chip Granola Bars 


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. 😍

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!

Egg Free Buttermilk Ranch

  

Buttermilk Ranch Dip:

1 weight watchers point per tbsp or 3 weight watchers points per 2 weight tbsp

Pair this with veggies or on top of your salad for a great lower calorie option that tastes amazing! All you need is one packet of buttermilk Ranch dry mix with 16 oz of sour cream (you can mix it up and do low-fat or fat-free if you wish). I personally prefer full fat sour cream for the taste. Mix it up and serve, place in fridge to store. 

Zero Carbs Pizza Chips

 

Pizza lovers this is for you! 🍕🍕🍕

ZERO CARBS! 🙌🏻👏🏻💁🏼

  • 20 pepperoni slices
  • 2 mozzarella string cheese 

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!

Green Smoothie

  
Good For You Green Smoothie:

  • 1 cup coconut water

This was quite delicious but if you don’t want a strong “green” taste I would omit the kale and just use spinach.
