I have met and must introduce you to my wonderful WW friend, Barrett Pastor. She is an amazing cook and has a great sense of humor. She created this wonderful Dark Chocolate Chip Banana Sheet Cake that is only 3 points per slice. And the slices are huge.
Weight Watchers Friendly Banana Cake
BLUE PLAN: 1 point
GREEN PLAN: 1 point
PURPLE PLAN: 1 point
When I made this amazing Weight Watchers Friendly Banana Cake I used exactly the same method as Barrett but I mixed it with a hand mixer and it still came out fantastic. I didn't think mixing it differently would change anything but you never know.
Low Point Cake
WW friendly low point cake can be hard to find, so we have to get creative!
I love finding new recipes to make and making new friends along the way. The beauty of WW is that we are a community of people who support one another on our journey. We create and share recipes, ideas, hacks, and advice to help each other become the best we can.
We also get to try a ton of new recipes and new takes on old favorites. Take this banana cake recipe, for example, I made a banana bread recipe that is only 2 points and tastes great. but I wanted to change it up and add something my wife would like to it. Adding chocolate chips was a no brainer, but how to do that and keep it low in points was the key. Barrett had the answer. Now I have 2 delicious recipes that I can make that are healthy and low in points but most of all satisfying that nagging sweet tooth 🙂
Zero Point Add Ins
Wondering how to change it up a bit so that you don't get bored with it? Try some zero-point add-ins that are sure to have you smiling all the way to the scale 🙂 Your family won't know it is a low point dessert all they will know is it tastes great.
- Dried cranberries
- Dried blueberries
- Coffee (i use expresso grounds they are ground finer)
Other Add Ins
- Any nut you want 🙂
- Coconut flakes
- Trail Mix
