Can I have this recipe on Weight Watchers?

Weight Watchers newest program, Personal Points, caters a plan to each individual. Their plan is still relatively the same in that you can eat anything you like you just need to track it and stay without your points ranges for the day / week.

Now that the plan is different for each and every individual there’s not really a way for us to provide the points for you. We recommend that you use the recipe creator on the app or the website to create the recipe based on the ingredients / brands you use and then you’ll know for sure how to track this recipe for your Personal Points plan!
