Sometimes, all you need is a Weight Watchers snack to get you through to the next meal. A little hunger can be the downfall of your healthy eating plan.
The problem with a little hunger for me is that it can turn into me getting hangry and eating something I shouldn't. Know what I mean?
Like when you know you need to eat a little something and you go into the kitchen and there really isn't much that's healthy because you haven't been to the store in a week? Yeah, that.
So then you see that bag of chips your husband bought and you are not going to eat any, but you're hungry and can't find anything else and you're worried that you'll get a headache if you don't eat, so you do. Does it sound like I've been there? Too many times.
These delicious little Weight Watchers snacks have amazing flavor and they are only three ingredients. THREE! The other really cool thing is that with just the two main ingredients, they are still good. You can add a variety of things depending on what you like.
What You Need for this Cookie Recipe
My current favorite combination is oatmeal, banana, and Goji berries. These delicious little berries are a super nutritious superfood. The red color gives these cookies a festive look. Those three ingredients along with cooking spray are all you need to make this snack.
Note: This recipe only makes 8 cookies. They are so easy to make that it only takes a few minutes, but you can certainly double or triple the batch.
You can add cranberries for the same amount of points, or raisins for a slight increase in the Points value. These cookies weigh in at just 1 ½ Points and 63 calories each.
How to Make the Cookies
Place rolled oats in a food processor or blender and process until fine like flour. Remove to a medium bowl and set aside.
Cut up the banana and either smash with a fork or place in the food processor and blend until smooth.
Add banana and Goji berries to oat flour and mix well. Let stand 15 minutes to soften berries.
Spray cookie sheet with non-stick spray.
Form dough into 8 cookies and place on a cookie sheet.
Bake at 350º for about 12 minutes. Check after 10 as oven temperatures vary.
Tips for Making these Weight Watchers Snack Cookies
Using frozen bananas works well for this recipe, too. Don't toss those bananas when they get overripe, just place in a plastic bag and stick them in the fridge to make cookies or my mom's ultimate moist banana bread. It's so good!
Press down on the cookies and kind of form them. They will not rise as there is no leavening in them, so you have to give them their shape.
Try other flavors of dried fruit to find your favorite combination.
