On the Lighter Side

Here are some lighter, Weight-Watcher friendly recipes I love!

CARAMEL APPLE SALAD

1 sm. pkg. sugar free butterscotch pudding (dry)
1 cup crushed pineapple with juice
Mix together, then add 4 unpeeled diced apples
and 1-8 oz. tub fat free frozen whipped topping, thawed


Just before serving, sprinkle with 1/2 cup dry roasted peanuts. This is my ultimate favorite sugar free dish!

PUMPKIN SPICE MUFFINS

1 18 oz. box spice cake mix
1 small can of pumpkin
2/3 cup water


Mix cake mix, pumpkin and water together by hand until smooth.  Fill 18 muffin tins - one heaping spoonful for each  - and bake at 350 degrees for 20 minutes.

These are so easy to make a heavenly to eat.
