These decadent Mini Cheesecakes are the perfect sweet treat when you need to satisfy that dessert craving. And at just 2 Points + and less than 100 calories each, they will make any Weight Watchers dessert recipe lover a happy camper. I found a traditional mini cheesecakes recipe online, similar to what my mom used to use, and then just subbed out half of the cream cheese for fat free Greek yogurt (seriously, is there any place I can’t use this stuff?!?!?), and used a light cream cheese for the rest. I also used less sugar and added in some vanilla to help keep it sweet. Also, by using Reduced Fat Vanilla Wafers instead of the regular ones, you get a fantastic mini cheesecake for a LOT less fat calories and Weight Watchers Points. I topped mine with fresh blueberries and strawberries since I was making them for a Fourth of July party and I wanted a Red, White and Blue Dessert, but you can really use any fresh fruit you’d like. I’ve made them with cherries, with mangoes and papaya, and with kiwi. They are divine!! Enjoy.
Doughnuts people!! GLAZED DOUGHNUTS!!! Yes, you can eat yummy doughnuts and still lose weight…with this incredible Mini Baked Glazed Doughnuts Recipe, that is. I found the original version of these lighter doughnuts on Oh She Glows. They were boasted as a 100 calorie vegan doughnut recipe. Well, I’m not vegan, but I SURE do love doughnuts, and for 100 calories, I had to check out this recipe. I altered her version a bit and ended up with a fabulous 70 calorie mini baked doughnut that really hits the spot when my sweet tooth hits. Though these doughnuts are baked, and not fried like traditional doughnuts, they are still sweet and moist, and have more of a cupcake like texture. When I baked mine, I used my Mini Donut Maker, which made it super easy. But the original recipe calls for doughnut pans. And if you don’t have doughnut pans, then I suggest making them into little balls with your hands and make baked doughnut holes. Regardless of their shape, these mini baked glazed doughnuts are a real treat at just 2 Points + each, and make an awesome Weight Watchers dessert or sweet snack idea.
A delicious light and moist Lemon Yogurt Cake is the perfect after dinner treat or as a sweet with your morning coffee. This low fat cake recipe not only tastes fantastic, but each serving is just 6 Points +, which isn’t bad for a moist and dense cake that is certain to satisfy your sweet tooth. It has the perfect combination of sweet and sour, and the lemon sugar glaze is oh so yummy. And with the weather starting to to warm up, I’ve been craving something fresh and bright. So I did a makeover on Ina Garten’s Lemon Yogurt Cake, and was thrilled at how amazing the cake tasted after the alterations I did to make it more Weight Watchers friendly. Enjoy!

Though I can’t give a new Mini Doughnut Maker to all of you, I can share this delicious recipe for Baked Apple Cider Doughnuts with Maple Glaze that I found. Bake your own low fat doughnuts and indulge in a decadent treat for less Points Plus than most doughnut recipes. Made with delicious apple cider and pure maple syrup, these tasty doughnuts are made by using a mini Bundt pan, and taste so good, it’s hard to believe they are just 6 Points + each. I wish I could get the Points even lower, but these are doughnuts after all, and I didn’t want to sacrifice too much of what we all LOVE when eating doughnuts!
Nothing says Fall like a fresh, crisp apple! Well, today I’ve got an even yummier way to enjoy those fall apples.

A slice of creamy cheesecake for just 4 Points + per slice!?? YES, please!! When I first came across this Orange Marmalade Cheesecake Recipe on Eating Well, I literally wanted to lick the screen. I love cheesecake, and anytime I can find a healthier, lower calorie version, you can bet your bottom dollar that I’m going to be giving it a try. I made some changes to their version to make it more WW friendly, and I was surprised at how well it turned out – though it does take a bit more effort to make than most Weight Watchers Cheesecake Recipes I’ve found. But the taste is SO worth it! A healthy treat for the family or a great, low calorie dessert recipe to take to a party or potluck, this delicious orange cheesecake will not disappoint!

After indulging in this cake at a recent party at a friend of mine’s house, I asked for the original recipe, which was from Eating Well, and made a few alterations to make it a bit more Weight Watchers friendly. Plus, I wanted to make it easier….their original banana cream layer cake recipe calls for making your own bavarian cream filling, but I just wasn’t a fan of the flavor of the cream or the hassle of preparing it. But by using Nonfat Cool Whip mixed with fat free vanilla pudding instead, I got a better flavor, it was much easier, and it lowered the fat and calorie count – a LOT. If you aren’t a fan of Cool Whip, you can use Fat Free Reddi Whip too (which I LOVE), but it does get runny kind of fast, so prepare for that. Though it tastes fantastic. So if you want a great summer dessert recipe that will help you stay on track with your Weight Watchers goals, this Banana Cream Cake is a must try. With only 6 Points + per slice, you can have your cake and eat it too!

If you are looking for a super yummy, low calorie version of a homemade carrot cake recipe, then you came to the right place! Considering that traditional carrot cakes can average 12-15 weight watchers points per serving, this diet friendly carrot cake recipe is a fabulous bargain at just a 4 Point Total per serving. And then there’s the not so average, Cheesecake Factory’s Carrot Cake Recipe. It has approximately: 1,510 calories, 84g fat, 600mg sodium, 179g carbs, 6g fiber, 129g sugars, 18g protein = 36 Weight Watchers Points!!!! CRAZY. I have always been a fan of carrot cakes with that rich, gooey, cream cheese frosting, but being a Weight Watcher pretty much kept me away from all my favorite dessert recipes. But after some trial and error and alterations with traditional carrot cakes recipes, I was able to create a version that is much lower in points and yet still tastes AMAZING. And though this is not an official one of weight watchers dessert recipes, it’s a great, low calorie dessert that will satisfy the carrot cake lover in everyone.

One of my readers recently wrote in asking if I had a good Weight Watchers Recipe for Coconut cake. So this weekend I did some research and found one and baked it immediately!! It was fantastic!

With just a few changes and substitutions, this fabulously delicious cake clocks in at just 5 Weight Watcher Points + per slice, and is a very filling and satisfying dessert. It turned out so moist and creamy, and I absolutely fell in LOVE with this cake.
