  1. I did some modifying for this recipe and it turned out sooo great! I took this straight from the recipe section, for Snowflake Maccaroons, but subbed carrot and splenda, for the coconut and sugar, and added cocoa powder for the squares.

    I loved these as a low point cookie. They flatten a bit, but are still soft and chewy and sweet and chocolatey!!! I may be a nut, but I was overjoyed to find a chocolate snack cookie for so few points! (I'm like Frankenstein in the kitchen!) crazy.gif

    I'm doing a rough version of point figuring, but I came up with 5.5 points for the whole batch of cookies.. If anyone found different, please let me know.


    Chocolate Carrot Cookies




    2 2/3 cups shredded carrot (1.5 points)

    2/3 cup splenda

    3 Tbsp. Cocoa powder (1 point)

    6 tablespoons flour (2 points)

    1/4 teaspoon salt

    4 egg whites (1 point)

    1 teaspoon almond extract




    Preheat oven to 325 degrees F. Lightly grease and flour cookie sheets. Mix carrots, splenda, cocoa, flour and salt in bowl. Stir in egg whites and almond extract until well blended. Drop by teaspoonfuls onto cookie sheets. Bake 20 minutes or until done. Immediately remove from cookie sheets. Cool on wire racks.

  2. )Oh my, Cordy C, that recipe sounds good!

    I used to make this, minus the apples and sweetner, adding veggie sausage and cheese crumbled up in the pan, then pour the batter on top. I loved that! But, the kid'os don't like it so much, so I don't make it too often.

    I think I'll try the sausage in the pan in the oven like you suggested, that sounds too good! (I'll give the kids cereal that day ;)

  3. OMG!!! These sound so good!!! I am waiting for the day when I can make cookies and have them in the house.

    My will power won't allow it yet. The last time I tried, I had 2 point brownies and used up my points for my drinks that night. I'd planned all day for the wine I was going to have, but ended up not having it because I got to weak with the brownies. :mad:

    Oh well, some day!

  4. Thanks for clearing that up for me.

    I saw in the WW book that 3Tbsp. of flour is one point, and I figured a half cup is about 6 Tbsp, so that would equal 2 points. I guess the mistake is there somewhere.

    What is the MasterCook? I need to get that program or sign up, whatever it is. I'm always in the kitchen, trying to figure each ingredient point and there's always a mistake somewhere.



  5. Woops, that last one was supposed to have something written!

    I was refiguring the points for this today and I came up with only 5 for the whole thing. Could this be right?




    Cinn. -0


    1/2 Cup of eggbeater or 4 egg whites- 1

    1/2 Cup of Flour or 6 Tbsp. - 2

    1/2 Cup of skim milk - 1

    Total 5 points/


    If anyone is getting something different, please let me know!



  6. I've been making this for years and it's my absolute favorite breakfast! I made some modifications for WW and it's low points too! I hope I figured the points correctly. If anyone could refigure and let me know that it's right, I'd appreciate it!


    Baked Apple Pancake

    Serves about 2-4

    9 points total in recipe


    1 med apple

    2 Tbsp. Splenda

    1/4 tsp. cinnamon


    1/2 Cup Egg substitute

    1/2 Cup Skim milk

    1/2 Cup Flour


    Spray butter, yogurt(if desired)



    Preheat oven to 400

    Spray 9inch cake pan with cooking spray.

    Peel and core apple, slice into thin bite size pieces.

    Put apples in bowl, add cinnamon and splenda and stir until apples are coated. Line bottom of cake pan with apples.

    In the same bowl used for the apples(don't rinse it) beat eggs and milk. Add flour 1 Tbsp. at a time and mix just until smooth.

    Pour on top of apples. Spray top of mixture a few times with spray butter.

    Bake for 20-25 minutes.


    This will rise in the oven, then settle into pan once cooled. Slice and serve with a spoonful of yogurt,syrup, or I just eat it alone with 2 veggie sausage links! YUMMM!!!

    The kids LOVE this one too. It's not cakey, it's more firm and I've always found it sweet enough to eat alone. The recipe originally said it serves 6, but I've eaten half of the whole thing before as my breakfast.(I don't skimp with breakfast points, it's my favorite meal of the day!)

    I hope you guys enjoy!
