Snacking is such a difficult choice for me.  Do I want sweet?  Salty?  Both?  Yes, please.  That's one reason these sweet & salty cookies are popular in my house.  The other reason is that they are no bake, which  means just 15 minutes of prep work and minimal dirty dishes.  I call that a total snack win.  

Did I mention that these are easy?  My kids can make them by themselves, with me peeking from the living room into the kitchen of course.  They are the perfect blend of sweet and salty, so everyone gets what they want.
No Bake Sweet and Salty Cookies With Weight Watchers Oat Clusters with Almonds Cereal
I was out of my special ingredient for these easy cookies, so I headed to Walmart.  I use Weight Watchers® Oat Clusters with Almonds in this snack because they are so yummy.  I've been buying it a lot lately because it's so good for breakfast and for making these delicious snack cookies.  I'm trying to live a healthier lifestyle, so I feel confident buying Weight Watchers foods in the grocery store.

No Bake Sweet and Salty Cookies 4 Weight Watchers Points Per Serving

  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1/4 cup real butter
  • 1/4 cup skim milk
  • 2 tablespoons cocoa powder
  • 1/2 cup natural peanut butter
  • 1 teaspoon real vanilla
  • 1/2 cup peanuts
  • 1 1/2 cup Weight Watchers Oat Clusters with Almond cereal
  • 1 cup pretzels, crushed by hand

Bring to a boil the sugar, real butter, milk, and cocoa powder.  Let boil for a full minute before removing from heat.  

Add the peanut butter and vanilla and give it a good stir.  Then add the peanuts, cereal, and pretzels.  I had them mixed together in a 4-cup measuring cup before I added them to the chocolate mixture.

Stir well so everything is mixed together.  Drop by spoonfuls on to a waxed paper lined baking sheet.  Place in the fridge until cool and hardened.  Store in the fridge.  

If you follow my recipe exactly and make 24 no bake cookies, there are just 4 Weight Watchers Points per cookie.
