A Microwave Chocolate Peanut Butter made with ingredients you probably already have at home for a healthy, delicious dessert that is ready in less than five minutes.

I am sure many of your have heard of the 3-2-1 cakes that use a combination of cake mix and water to create a simple microwave cake that is ready in one minute in the microwave. The only problem? Cake mix can contain some pretty funky ingredients and lots of things I can't pronounce. However since these 3-2-1 cakes were so popular, Weight Watchers decide to create thier own 3 point version. Unfortunately we run into the same problem. Here's what inside

  • Ingredients: enriched self-rising flour [enriched bleached wheat flour (bleached wheat flour, niacin, reduced iron, thiamin, mononitrate, riboflavin, folic acid), salt, baking powder, calcium sulfate, enzyme], cocoa processed with alkali, corn fiber, canola oil, egg, baking powder, natural and artificial flavors, salt, sucralose, acesulfame potassium.

I don't know about, but that's a lot of things I don't recognize plus I don't really like artificial sweeteners since they give me a headache. This version uses more natural ingredients. Plus you can always substitute peanut butter for the peanut butter powder if you like. I also sometimes throw in a mashed banana for extra sweetness and moisture.

My husband and I are always looking for something sweet after dinner, but that is also Weight Watcher friendly. I found Martha's recipe this evening, gave it a try and can't quit talking about it. For an extra 2 points, we added caramel sauce and a dusting of powdered sugar - 5 totals points of yummy-goodness! We highly recommend!
