Last week, I posted a recipe for Cinnamon Roll Cookie Bars. I just wanted to write a quick follow up post to entice you to make these delicious, heavenly bars! We made them this weekend and they were awesome, and so simple to make!
If you cut them properly, they are only 3 Weight Watcher points.
Here are a few pictures from our first attempt.I hope you enjoy them as much as we did!
So this is new for me, I am going to post a recipe. Actually, I am going to re-blog a post from my friend Shelly, who posted this on her blog yesterday. It sounded so good I had to relay it to my followers! In fact, I am going to share this with my office group that is doing the Biggest Loser competition! This is a Weight Watchers recipe, and looks awesome. I am going to have to try it this weekend. If you try it, give me your feedback in the comments!
