Weight Watchers Cheesecake!
So, I'm 5 weeks into my Weight Watchers journey. I managed to loose my baby weight on my own but now I'm working on the "marriage weight". It's a never ending cycle, isn't it?
Anyway, when I saw people posting recipes I thought it might be fun to post Weight Watcher recipes that I have tried and can vouch that they really are good. Don't worry, I won't share the yucky ones... I try at least 1 new WW recipe a week and so far this is the only one I like enough to share.
Oh and if anyone knows of anyone else sharing WW recipes please let me know who they are! I would love to try theirs and make sure I don't post something that they have. Ok... onward!
Chocolate Chip Cheesecake
-10 oreos crushed (Quick fix mama used an oreo pie crust, cause she didn't wanna have to crush the oreos lol)
-8oz fat free cream cheese (in the box)
-8oz light cream cheese (in the tub)
-1 cup of sugar (see we are allowed to have the good stuff!)
-2 tbsp all purpose flour
-1 cup cottage cheese
-2 tsp almond extract
-6 large egg whites
-3/4 cup MINI choc. chips
-Preheat oven to 325 degrees
-lightly coat spring form pan with cooking spray and spread cookie crumbs lightly over bottom of pan
-Using an electric mixer mix together cream cheeses until well blended then add sugar and flower and mix again.
-in a food processor or blender puree cottage cheese until smooth. Add cottage cheese and almond extract to cream cheese mixture and mix again.
-Add egg whites and mix once more.
-Stir in 1/2 cup of choc. chips.
-Pour into spring form pan and sprinkle remaining chips on top.
-Bake until cheesecake puffs and center is almost set. About 60 minutes.
-Let cool completely and then run knife around edges to loosen and release pan sides. Cover and chill overnight. Cut into 12 slices. 1 slice =6 points
I can really taste the almond extract which seems a little odd for cheesecake, but it doesn't taste like diet food so I could care less at this point! :)
Enjoy! And thanks for reading.
