sweet Treats

This week for Frugal Date Friday we are going to sweeten things up! Grab an apron and your spouse to start baking.

The great thing about this date is that you don’t have to leave the house. You even let the kids participate if you want.

To make it even more fun, try to bake something new. For some low calorie options, you can see some Weight Watchers desserts that are 5 points or less.

What We’re Making:

Baked Apples With Vanilla Drizzle, recipe (5 Points)

Apples– 99¢-$3 (lb-3lb) (Target, Ingles, Kroger, Food City, Publix, Aldi, Food Lion, Lowe’s Foods, Bi-lo, Harvey’s, Safeway, Whole Foods, Earthfare)
Raisins- $1 (4.5 oz) (Dollar Tree)
Apple Cider- $1.67-$3.99 (8 oz-64 oz) (sub apple juice)  (Publix, Target, Bi-Lo, Winn Dixie. Harris Teeter, Safeway)
Maple Syrup- $9.99 (4 oz.) (Whole Foods)
Low Fat Vanilla Yogurt–  (Safeway, Winn-Dixie, Food Lion, Publix, Food City, Ingles)
Pecans– $5.99 (12-16 oz) (Kroger)

It’s low points, gluten free, and should be very delicious!

We are having friends over for dessert the next night, so we’ll go ahead and make extra to share with them.

What is your favorite fall dessert?

      Real maple syrup is only 3.99 for 8 ounces at Aldi. Pecans are 8 ounces for 3.99. In fact you could get all of the rest of the ingredients for similar or less at Aldi and avoid running all over town.

      thought this was a great idea, so hubby and I made banana muffins tonight. I forgot that we’re both control freaks…
