I used to love ordering crab rangoon from Chinese restaurants…until I found out they were 7 points each!
Of course a big part of that is because they are fried.
Now when I have a craving for crab rangoon I just make it at home. I prefer to make them in the air fryer, but if you don’t have one you can bake them in the oven.
These Crab Rangoon’s are only 3 points for two! That’s for blue, green and purple.
Not frying them saves a lot of points.
I also used reduced-fat cream cheese which saved 13 points.
Crab Rangoon also makes a great appetizer for a party. They don’t take long to make and most people love them.
I will be the first to admit that mine don’t look very pretty. I have a hard time wrapping them up. 🙂
But they taste so good, it doesn’t even bother me.
The most important thing you need to do is make sure the wonton wrappers are completely sealed. That way the cream cheese mixture doesn’t leak.
This recipe makes 30 Crab Rangoon’s. If you don’t need to make that many you can easily cut the recipe in half.
Yield: 30 (Two Crab Rangoon = 3 points for blue, green and purple)
- 30 wonton wrappers
- 8 oz. reduced-fat cream cheese
- 4 oz. lump crab meat
- 3 tablespoons sliced green onions
- 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
Mix together the cream cheese, crab, green onions and garlic powder.
Add a small spoonful (less than a tablespoon) of the cream cheese mixture to the center of a wonton wrapper. Brush the edges of the wonton wrapper with water.
Bring two opposite corners together and make sure they are pinched closed. Do the same with the other two corners making sure the wonton wrapper is completely sealed. Repeat with remaining cream cheese mixture and wontons.
Preheat air fryer to 350 degrees.
Add the wontons in a single layer (you may have to do more than one batch). Spray with olive oil spray, then set the time for 9 minutes, or until the wontons are golden.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
Place the wontons on a baking sheet and spray with olive oil spray. Bake 15 minutes or until golden.
