Be PreparedPosted: October 30, 2011
I have decided that 95% of this whole weight loss thing is to be prepared. As I have harped on a bizillion times, I am a bit worried about the amount of candy I am going to consume tomorrow. It is not a reach to say I can probably down 50-70 mini chocolates in one sitting. I didn’t get to my Bovine stature by downing bags of mini carrots. In an effort to limit the Halloween havoc that typically ensues, I got on the Weight Watchers website and looked up candy recipes. And look what I found:
PointsPlus® Value: 3
Preparation Time: 10 min
Cooking Time: 30 min
Level of Difficulty: Easy
|These delectable morsels are the perfect after-dinner party treat. Freeze leftovers individually for easy portion control — if there are any!|
|1 1/4 cup(s) all-purpose flour|
|1 1/4 cup(s) unpacked brown sugar, firmly packed|
|1 tsp baking powder|
|1/3 cup(s) unsweetened applesauce|
|2 Tbsp water|
|2 tsp vanilla extract|
|4 large egg white(s)|
|1/3 cup(s) milk chocolate chips|
- Preheat oven to 350°F. Coat a 9-inch baking pan with cooking spray.
- Combine flour, brown sugar and baking powder in a large bowl; mix well. Add applesauce, water, vanilla extract and egg whites; blend well. Spoon batter into pan and smooth top; sprinkle with chocolate chips.
- Bake until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean, about 30 minutes. Cool completely before cutting into 16 pieces.
They sound delicious and are only 3 pts each. I think that I am going to make a batch to have handy so that I can avoid the Halloween candy. The thing about candy is this Bovine can’t eat just one piece so I am going to try to have NO pieces. Not sure if it is realistic but hopefully if I have these Mini Brownie Candy Bars on hand, I will be able to avoid anything marked Hershey or Nestle. I do run the risk of eating all of the Mini Brownie Candy Bars AND 50 pieces of mini chocolates…..stranger things have happened on this farm. But even stranger would be if I didn’t!
Best of luck to you tomorrow!
