But I need to get the weight off and I'm finally adjusting myself to the new plan. And I think I'll get back to where I should be.
I ate so carefully today that I was able to have a hamburger and fries (not the fast food kind, the home cooked kind) for dinner. And I still have room for brownies, so long as they're the No Guilt type.
These are a clone of the No Pudge brownies. You can buy the mixes in the store--and I do--but if you're out of mix or don't want to use the mix, this works perfectly. And it's only 3 points per serving on the Weight Watchers plan--just what it was on the old plan.
BTW, I had this on the original "Library Lady Rants" blog and couldn't access it--apparently Blog-City is now no more--why I moved the blog to Blogger. Luckily, I had archived all my posts. In fact, looking for this, I found a lot more recipes I need to re-post here!
(Almost)Guilt Free Brownies ("No Pudge" Clone)1 cup sugar
3/4 cup flour
1/2 cup cocoa (that's unsweetened, not a mix!)
2 tsp cornstarch
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp baking soda
2 egg whites (I use powdered + water). Omit the egg whites if you want brownies that are fudgelike)
1/2 cup plain non-fat yogurt (increase to 2/3 cup if you omit the egg whites)
1 tsp vanilla (you can omit this if you use vanilla yogurt, but I don't keep this on hand)
Combine the dry ingredients and blend.
Add the egg whites (if using),the yogurt and the vanilla.
Stir to blend. This is a thick batter.
Spray an 8x8 baking pan (you can use a brownie sized pan, it will change the texture and baking time)
Add the batter, smoothing with a spoon.
Bake for 30-35 minutes at 350 degrees F.
These can be very, VERY messy to cut, and you're supposed to let them cool first. But usually, we don't!
