I just love desserts that don’t require you to heat up the oven. This is as easy as stirring all the ingredients in a pan and dropping the batter onto parchment paper and just waiting for them to set.
I’m sure everyone has had no-bake cookies before and these are Weight Watcher friendly so you don’t feel so guilty eating them. Weight Watchers recently changed their plan to myWW which includes all three points and on purple, blue, and green they are 3 points for cookie. I use a small tablespoon ice cream scoop to measure these cookies out. Makes 30 to 35 cookies.
I prefer storing these in the fridge so they stay set. These cookies take up to an hour to set, but if you let them set in the fridge you can eat them faster!
How to lower points of cookies
Please note that since WW uses sugar to figure out their points system now these cookies are high in points for some people. They used to be only 2 points on their old Points Plus plan. One thing I love about this program is being able to have whatever you want and still being able to fit these into your points.
Use PB2 instead of regular peanut butter. PB2 is powdered peanut butter that is found next to regular peanut butter in most grocery stores.
Use artificial sweeteners instead of real sugar. The only reason I choose to use real sugar is that I’m allergic to artificial sweeteners. I don’t mess with them anymore since they really mess up my digestion.Print
