Healthy Cinnamon Crisps

It's been a long time since I've been here.  It's been quite a roller-coaster for me, but I am trying to get back on track and I'm on my way to losing weight again.  yea me!

I found a new favorite product.  I can't get enough.  Have you heard about Hungry Girl Flatout Breads?  They are a-ma-zing!  Heartier than any diet bread on market, and healthier than any that I've found.  You've got to take a look at the product line and go to the store locator to find them near you at  Please be aware that you will NOT find them in the bread section.  They are in the deli or bakery area.

I have tried the Rosemary and Olive Oil Foldit, the Spicy Italian Thin Crust Flatbread, the Flatout Healthy Grain Harvest Wheat, the Traditional White Foldit, and the 100% Whole Wheat with Flax Foldit Flatbread.  All of them are super delicious and so very healthy.  You'll have to look at their website to see the incredible nutrition stats.

The recipe I'm going to share today uses the 100% Whole Wheat with Flax Foldit Flatbread.  It has just 90 calories, 2.5g fat, 360mg sodium, 15g carbs, 7g fiber and 7g of protein.  Holy cow!  All that fiber and protein packed into a single serving.  Wow!

They are great straight out of the package and made into any type of sandwich.  My personal favorite way to eat them though is crispy.  I like to bake them in the oven at 350F for 10 minutes to get them crispy like a cracker and pile them with toppings.  I'll have to make more posts about some of those coming up.

Ok, so tonight I wanted a sweet treat.  I decided to make cinnamon crisps with my Whole Wheat with Flax Foldit Flatbread.  Here's what I did...

Preheated the oven to 350F.  Put the Fodit on a baking sheet and sprayed it with (generic) butter flavored Pam.  Then I sprinkled 1 teaspoon of cinnamon sugar onto each half.  I used a pizza cutter to cut it in half and then into strips (laying flat and being careful not to overlap them).  I put them in the oven for 10 minutes.  That's it!  They come out like a crispy warm cracker with a nicely sweet coating.

And wait until you hear the stats for this tasty little treat!  123 calories, 2.5g fat, 360mg sodium, 23.4g carbs, 7g fiber and 7g protein.  This has a low low low Weight Watchers Points Plus of 3!!!  I think anyone can fit this yumm-o snack into their healthy diet plan, don't you?

For those of you not sure on the ratio for cinnamon sugar, the best bet is 4:1.  Try 1/4 C sugar with 1 Tbsp cinnamon.  (And if you decide you don't like them as crispy as I do, try 7 or 8 minutes in the oven instead of 10.)

Happy snacking!
