Are you ready for a dessert that’s only 2 Freestyle points per serving?
Then let me introduce you to this delicious Strawberry Crisp!
I was craving something sweet the other day so I took a look around to see what ingredients I had.
I found strawberries (we almost always have strawberries) and I also found oatmeal in the pantry.
I knew right away I wanted to make a Strawberry Crisp, but keep it low in Freestyle points.
The strawberries were easy. I cut up 3 cups worth and added some Splenda and cornstarch.
For the oatmeal (I used Quaker quick oats) I used 1 cup which was 9 Freestyle points. I added 1 1/2 tablespoons of melted butter (8 Freestyle points), vanilla and Splenda.
I drastically reduced the amount of butter compared to a typical “crisp” recipe. That saved a ton of points!
There was still enough butter in the Strawberry Crisp topping to make it crispy. What’s a Strawberry Crisp if the topping isn’t crispy!?
This recipe makes 8 servings which are 2 Freestyle points per serving. You can also use different fruit.
Next time I think I will add some blueberries to the strawberries. Another idea is to use apples for the fruit and add some cinnamon to the oats. The possibilities are endless!
I added a little bit of fat-free Reddi Wip which was 0 Freestyle points.
You could also add some Halo Top vanilla ice cream. You can have a 1/2 cup for only 2 points. Your dessert would only be 4 Freestyle points and that’s with ice cream.
I don’t care if it is cold outside, I still like to eat ice cream. I mean people still drink coffee in the summer when it’s hot, right? 🙂
