Tasty Treats

If you read my last post {Different Directions} then you know I joined Weight Watchers! I have been playing around with a few recipes and these are a few yummies already! I’m working on calculating and writing up a few more but these should hit the spot for now, enjoy.

Vegetarian “Chicken” Pizza:

1 package Morning Star Farms Chicken strips

1/2 cup spaghetti sauce (I used Rinaldi mushroom & green pepper)

2 flat out wraps

cheese is optional but I used provolone

Saute chicken strips until warm, (they are pre-cooked) and stir in sauce. Allow mixture to thicken. Spoon 1/2 the mixture on one flat out and the other 1/2 on the second flat out, top with cheese if using it and place wraps on rack of pre heated 375 oven for about 10 minutes or until flat out is crisp. Cut into sections, roughly 3 sections for each pizza. 4 points plus for each serving.

 

 

Super Food Shake:

1 cup fat free milk, 1/2 container of vanilla yogurt, handful of blueberries, handful of spinach, 1 scoop amazing grass, can add ice if you’d like-blend in blender and enjoy. 7 points plus

Now for some desserts!! I don’t about you but I’m a sweets person so these are awesome!!

 

 

Red Velvet Cake with White Chocolate Frosting:

Ingredients:
– 1 (18 ounce) box Duncan Heinz Red Velvet Cake Mix
– 8 ounces diet Dr. Pepper soda
– 1 (8 serving sized) package jell-o fat free sugar-free instant white chocolate pudding mix
– 2 cups skim milk

Directions:
Mix cake mix and diet soda. Pour in 13?x9? pan sprayed with Pam.
Bake at 350 for 30 minutes or until done. Cool completely. Mix pudding and milk.
When thickened, spread on cake, and cut into 15 equal sized portions. Cover and refrigerate leftovers. Makes 15 servings.

Each serving = 4 Points Plus

 

 

Yogurt Bites:

1 container vanilla yogurt, 1/2 cup frozen blueberries- mix and drop onto cookie sheet place in freezer until firm.

1 point each

 

 

Chocolate Mini Cakes:

Boxed dark chocolate dry cake mix, 10 oz of diet dr.pepper and 2 egg whites. Mix those ingredients with an electric mixer on low for a minute and then on medium speed for 2 minutes. Preheat the oven to the temperature that’s suggested on the back of the cake mix, and pour the mix into whichever pan you prefer after you sprayed it with cooking spray. Then you bake the cake (or cupcakes) for however long it recommends on the back of the box, for mini cup cakes I did 12 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean. Let cool and then enjoy. You can put fat free whipped cream or cool whip on top if you want, or you can just eat it plain.

Roughly 2 points for 3 mini’s or 3 points for one full size.

And now for a recipe that I don’t have point values for but has been requested for a while, Blueberry Oatmeal Cookies!!

  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • ¼ tsp. baking powder
  • ½ tsp. baking soda
  • 6 packs of instant  blueberry oatmeal
  • ½ cup butter
  • 1 egg
  • ½ cup white granulated sugar
  • ½ cup brown sugar
  • ½ tsp. vanilla extract
  • 1 tbsp. milk
  • could add nuts if you like

Preheat the oven at 350 degrees F.

Lay a piece of parchment paper on the cookie sheet and spray it with cooking spray. Set aside for later use.

Combine the all-purpose flour, baking soda, baking powder and the instant oatmeal in a bowl. Melt the butter in a small saucepan over medium-high heat. Pour the melted butter into a bowl and crack an egg in to it. Whisk the melted butter and egg together.  Add the white granulated sugar, brown sugar, vanilla extract and milk to the melted butter, and mix with a spoon. Add the flour-oatmeal mixture to the sugar mixture gradually. Add more oats or flour to the cookie dough if necessary to thicken it up. Drop spoonfuls of cookie dough 2 inches apart on the prepared cookie sheet or roll the cookie dough into balls. Flatten the dough balls with a fork or a cup until they are ½ inch thick. Bake the instant oatmeal cookies for about 10 minutes or until they are light golden brown. Remove them from the pan and let them cool for about five minutes before eating.
