Weight Watchers: Chocolate Chip Cheesecake - The Crafty Working Mom

I made this a couple times last year. Amazing. This is 12SP per serving. I saw cheesecake up to 26SP. I did substitute the almond extract for vanilla extract. Almond is very strong. I do plan on making this again. I only eat cheesecake once a year around my birthday which is Christmas time.

Weight Watchers: Banana Bread

Now who doesn’t love banana bread? I love it. This one is only 4 SP per serving. You have to remember a loaf is 18 servings. So pretty much a sliver. This is what I usually make when my bananas become overripe. I’m strange, I will eat my bananas with green on them still. Anyone else do this? Anyway, I will also freeze my bananas if I have to many. This recipe is definitely a keeper. I didn’t add the walnuts to mine. I’m not a nut person.

I joined Weight Watchers almost two months ago. I’m really enjoying it. It doesn’t restrict what you eat really. For example, my son and I went to Wendy’s about a month ago since we were busy running around. I had my morning coffee, which adds to 2 points. (I get 30 a day). I don’t eat fast food often. It’s rare. So I order a chicken sandwich meal with a chocolate frosty. I didn’t bother checking the points before hand. Wish I did. That meal was 45 points! Once you see what certain foods are, you will stay away from it. This meal it 4 points. Big difference.
