  • Pumpkin Seed Bars

    Pumpkin Seed Bars

    Calories: 60 WW Freestyle Points: 2

    I love pumpkin seeds and these bars are only 60 calories - or 2 WW Freestyle points each. They are a little crunchy but slightly chewy because of the pumpkin seeds. I pack this up with 2 pre-peeled hard boiled eggs and a banana when I need to eat on the go. I could not find these in any stores so I ordered them online.

  • Yogurt To Go

    Yogurt To Go

    Calories: WW Freestyle Points: 1

    These are my adult version of "Go-gurt" to take with me when I'm in a hurry.


    You can use these for road trips if you have an ice-pack or cooler bag to store them in. OR, freeze them so they stay cold and slowly defrost over the course of an hour or so.


    I added just a teaspoon of sugar and vanilla extract to the plain non-fat greek yogurt, just to take the tart taste out of the yogurt. If you use Truvia or another zero calorie sweetner, this is a zero point snack.


    Recipe makes 3 yogurt packs. 1 WW Freestyle Points for 3 of them.


    You can find and purchase a 100 pack of these Zipzicle Bags on Amazon for about $10.

    You can also find and purchase a Re-usable Pastry Bag on Amazon for about $5.50. I use pastry bags often in a lot of my recipes.

  • Oatmeal Bars

    Oatmeal Bars

    Calories: 185 WW Freestyle Points: 4

    These oatmeal bars are very easy to make. They have a very soft gooey texture because of the oatmeal. You can make these in advance - store them in the refrigerator, then heat them up. But they are best if you eat them the day you make them. If I'm on the go, I'll pack this up with a hard boiled egg or some fruit. For the apples in this recipe, Granny Smith is good or another type of baking apple. Recipe makes 8 bars using an 8" x 8" square pan.
