Although I’m not a huge cake girl, I have a serious soft-spot in my heart (or belly—pun intended!) for coffee cake. The moist cake and crumbly streusel topping go perfectly with a cup of dark roast on a lazy Sunday morning. While I usually only indulge in this type of treat once every few months, I have recently been a little more liberal with my coffee-cake enjoyment. Because I found a better-for-you option with built-in portion control—hooray!
Weight Watchers recently sent us its new coffee cakes, which are totally delicious. Each pre-portioned cake has only 120 calories and 5 grams of fiber (which equals three points for you Weight Watchers) to boot. And, although they are small and high in sugar, they are a really good way to get your coffee-cake fix. You can buy a box of four for about $3. Just be wary that their deliciousness can be tricky: They’re so tasty that you might want to polish off more than one in a sitting. I fixed this by having one with an egg white and veggie omelet and a little fruit. Yumtastic, filling and no sugar crash later!
