Weight Watcher Wednesday Recipe!

For everyone out there wanting to loose a few pounds. I'm going to be posting helpful recipes on Wednesdays and Thursdays called "Weight Watcher Wednesdays" and "Low Carb Thursdays" I'm on a health kick right now and I want to keep it up. I'm not on the weight watchers program but I use some of there recipes and I believe I benefit.

If you haven't tried this recipe you should. They are so yummy that I could eat the whole pan of them by my self, so instead I make a batch, have one and then rap the rest individually and freeze them for a sweet treat when I want one. That way I don't get carried away. They really are yummy hard to believe they're only 121 calories
