Top 12 Weight Watcher friendly sweet treat recipes

February 14, 2016

It’s Valentines day.. and while I love my husband and daughter dearly.. I also love my sweet treats! When I set out on my weight loss journey back in January 2014 I knew I had to find ways to incorporate desserts and treats into my day, I spent 11 years saying “No” because I thought it was the right thing to do.. but restriction, for me, is not the way to go about it.. So I got creative in the kitchen, and came up with WW friendly sweet treats..learning that just a little of something could go a long way.. and by allowing these sweet treats I did not feel the need to grab all those high point treats I was so accustomed to grabbing at the grocery store… I eat some kind of dessert or sweet treat everyday… and I don’t feel that makes me an unhealthy person, it makes me human, someone with a sweet tooth that learned the right way to cure it 🙂 Here are some of my favorite and most popular sweet treat recipes… so this Valentines, treat yourself to something sweet while staying on track! 🙂

    Thanks for the recipes! Love my sweets and was interested in which program you prefer. Points plus or Smart points? I’m really leaning to switch back to Points plus.

    Thanks for the recipes! I am doing the WW new freestyle system and I’m wondering how the points would translate?

      Hi , most baked goods did not change in points, freestyle is still smart points we still figure points out the same way, only recipes I had with chicken, beans etc, the new zero foods have changed and have been updated
