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.

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.
