Low-cal treat: Granola "sundae"

I'm always on the lookout for low calorie treats to eat after dinner. I came up with one the other night I thought was pretty good.

I took a Great Value 90-calorie granola bar and heated it up for about 20 seconds in the microwave. I added a dollop or two of whipped topping (you could use fat free for an even better treat) and a drizzle of chocolate sauce.

A sprinkle of nuts would make a nice addition too since they are so good for you.It was plenty enough to handle my sweet tooth and not too bad of an indulgence. Just thought I'd share

    1. Me too! I heard one time that a granola bar is really just a cookie, but at least it's a low-ish calorie cookie with a little fiber in it :) Yum!

    1. Oh, I know it, I've been having too many treats lately :) Decided I needed to tone them down a bit.

  5. I make homemade granola and eat it with sherbet--or better yet with yogurt and fruit. LOVE it!

    1. Oh my gosh, I'll bet the homemade granola is awesome. And with Greek yogurt, that'd be awesome!
