chocolate chip pretzel blondies

chocolate chip pretzel blondies | my skinny sweet tooth

With this last round of snow this season (hopefully), my husband and I both have “snow days”  today. We’re snowed in (a total of 11″!) so any plans to venture out was slim to none. He was working hard outside snow shoveling the driveway, so I figured I would work hard in the kitchen … making an easy batch of these. Talk about coming together quickly! And while they were cooling, my husband came back inside. I heard him sniffing the air and following the aroma right into the kitchen. He took one look at ’em and said “Oh my! What are THOSE?!” Needless to say, they look and smell great! I’m always in search of a great blondie recipe, and with this one, I believe I’ve stuck gold.

This recipe is adapted from one of my favorite blogs. The base is flour, egg, and butter free and full of fiber. In the end,  I just added the pretzels. There’s a salty crunch with the sweet, gooey blondies. The perfect combo. 😉

Have a glass of almond milk ready! 😋

skinny almond joy bars

skinny almond joy bars | my skinny sweet tooth

There’s something special about an almond joy. The chocolate and coconut can easily transport me to a topical place. Sometimes I feel those commercials prove true. You know the ones; where someone tears open that blue wrapper, and along with the chocolate and coconut, a palm tree appears. Yep, that’s me; eyes closed, sitting in my bathroom with my feet in the tub, inhaling an almond joy. Yet, in my head, I’m at the beach with my feet in the water. I just hope my husband doesn’t walk in on me and wonder what I’m doing … but hey, maybe one day he’ll join me. If I’m willing to share. I do love him, but he should bring his own almond joy just in case. 😉

Since my jeans won’t let me inhale almond joys like I used to, I’ve decided to come up with my own version. They’re healthier, too! Oh, and the best part? NO BAKE! It’s 85° outside, turn that oven off! 🙂

Each bar is only 2pp and satisfies that chewy, chocolate and coconutty craving. 100%. Maybe my husband will join me on the side of the tub with a plate full of these.

“Unwrap paradise” they say. Don’t mind if I do!

S’more Pancakes

Ok.

I surrender, no longer in denial … I’m an addict. A full-blown, could-eat-it-everyday addict.

I’m addicted to s’mores. I would probably bleed chocolate and marshmallow if a vampire found it’s way to my jugular. What? Vampires?  Good grief. Anyway, back to my s’more’s obsession. Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner, Snack, Dessert. Yes, ANYTIME! … and today, it’s breakfast 🙂

S’more Egg Rolls

I’m a sucker for all of those delicious dessert pins on pinterest and food gawker. Ugh, what’s a weight watching girl to do? Well, I’ll tell you what I’m not going to do … I’m not going to sit and pout and wish I had those darn quadruple chocolate cookies or 16 layer cake or deep fried cookie dough egg rolls. Being a weight watcher means being creative (or having someone be creative for you 😉 ). & speaking of the cookie dough egg rolls, though they looked divine, I started thinking of a better way to make this. I also went with the s’more route, because who doesn’t love a good ‘ol s’more? And lastly, it’s only 4pp each (with the chocolate drizzle, too!)
