Let’s face it. Hunger did not pack the extra pounds onto my body. It was the CRAVINGS! As much as I’d love to dive into a warm cinnamon roll, the 813 calories (18 Points) serve as a pretty effective deterrent.
This morning, I found a very satisfying alternative, the Cinnabomb (It’s da bomb).
1 Bagel Thin (like Thomas’)
1 Ounce of Reduced Fat Cream Cheese Spread (I used Weight Watchers’)
1 Packet of Sugar Substitute (like Splenda)
Lightly toast the bagel thin. You want the bagel to be warm, but not crisp. Evenly divide the cheese spread between the two halves. Sprinkle the tops with half a packet of sugar substitute each followed by a sprinkling of cinnamon. Swirl the toppings together.
The result? No more famous cinnamon roll cravings for me and at 170 calories (2 Points), the Cinnabomb fits nicely into my meal plan.
