Why does Weight Watchers work so well? Because nothing is off-limits. If you want to eat cheesy, butter covered biscuits, you can. Now I'm a bit stingy with my points so I like making my biscuits at home, but as long as you have the points for it… you can eat anything!

Even if you only get 23 points a day, this copycat Cheddar Bay biscuit recipe will fit right in.

I'm so happy you're here. 🙂 Note: Smiley's Points participates in affiliate programs. That's how the bills get paid! There is no additional charge to you and I only recommend products I know and love.

Weight Watchers Cheddar Bay Biscuits

I was on the hunt for the perfect Cheddar Bay biscuit. The ones from Red Lobster are 6 points each (EEK!), and all of the copycat recipes I found were either made with 2-ingredient dough (which I love making but I wanted to try something different), or were 3-4 points each. And who eats just one cheesy garlic biscuit? I knew I could make them fewer points, but how? Using skim milk and low-fat pancake mix is key.

POINTS: 1 Freestyle SmartPoint per serving, 20 Freestyle SmartPoints for the entire batch of 16 biscuits.

How to Make Copycat Cheddar Bay Biscuits

You can make these biscuits in the oven or in the Air Fryer. I used my Ninja Foodi because the oven takes way too long. I'd at least double the time for the oven.

I tried three different ways to cook these in the Foodi:

The first batch, I used a wire rack. Sprayed it with pan spray so it didn't stick, but some of the biscuit mix fell through the holes so they didn't come out perfectly. If you use a wire rack, cover it in foil first. This is the way I recommend baking your biscuits. If you don't have a wire rack, use this mini pan. It works well.

The second batch, I cooked in these silicone baking cups. They turned out doughy on the bottom, so I pulled them out, flipped each biscuit over, and cooked for 5 more minutes. I tried the silicone baking cups again, this time on top of the wire rack. I had to add 2 minutes to the cooking time but they worked out well. This is a great method to use if you have the baking cups.

The last batch, I actually turned into a pizza. I'll have that recipe up soon!
