About Me

Welcome to Tweaked at Chez Jan de la Dayton....translated to 'tweaked at Jan's house in Dayton'! Sounds fancy, but it's not. If you choose to share a recipe, be kind and give me kudos for it. The pictures are NOT to be taken off this blog unless used in a direct link to this blog. Once upon a time I was a Weight Watchers leader....that chapter is closed. But I still like to eat and bake and don't like the weight that finds its way to me too easily. So I go find delicious-sounding recipes and tweak them. Some recipes, however, just don't turn out right if they're tweaked. I've not posted anything....so far.....that isn't WW friendly. That might change, and I'll warn you if I post something with 'scary' P+ values. For those who don't use substitutions, the ratio for Splenda granulated/sugar is 1:1 and the ratio for egg substitute/eggs is 1/4 cup of egg sub = 1 egg. Now.....let's have some fun in the kitchen!!!

Carrot Raisin Bars

CARROT RAISIN BARS
Makes 24 servings
1 serving = 1 PointsPlus™

1 box Betty Crocker Super Moist Carrot Cake Mix (unprepared)
1/2 cup unsweetened applesauce
1/4 cup water
1/2 cup fat-free egg substitute
3/4 cup raisins
1/2 cup chopped walnuts

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Spray 15x10x1" pan (cookie sheet) with baking spray with flour.

In a large bowl, mix cake mix, applesauce, water and egg substitute. Stir in raisins and nuts. Spread evenly in pan.

Bake 18 - 24 minutes or until bars spring back when touched lightly in the center.

Cool. Cut into 24 pieces.

You can eat these as they are, with fat-free/sugar-free Cool Whip or the following Drizzle Topping....adds no points.

DRIZZLE TOPPING:
3 oz. fat-free cream cheese
1/4 cup powdered sugar
1 tsp fat-free skim milk
1/2 tsp vanilla extract

Mix together until smooth.

Enjoy!

Now for the 'legal mumbo-jumbo' to keep me out of court! *The PointsPlus™ value for this recipe was calculated by me (Jan Gomes) and is not an endorsement or approval of this recipe by Weight Watchers International, Inc., the owner of the PointsPlus™ registered trademark.*

Later!
Loving Life(time)!
