It’s the beginning of a new year and many of us have probably been reflecting on our lives; ourselves, wants, goals and projects etc. Many of us, seriously a lot of us, are always making new goals that involve our bodies. Whether that goal is to lose weight, get into shape, eat better or maybe all three of those . I myself am one of those people, but not as a “New Year Resolution”and not as a “goal for 2018”. Since early December I’ve been doing some soul searching, thinking of my “whys” and “is this where I want myself to be”. A voice inside my head piped up and said, “No way, get your shit together and be better for you”. And better sounds good…and achievable.
In the spirit of “a better me” I am follower of a group on Facebook called “No Finish Line Nation”, and it’s pretty cool. I can honestly say it is one of the most positive, supportive, helpful and interesting groups on FB that I’ve come across. Many people who are in the group are following a Weight Watchers program but many also are not.
Lately, a hot topic on the NFLN FB group has been “2 Ingredient Dough”. Everyone has been asking how to make it, what to make with it and “does it taste gross” (seriously).
Well over this weekend I made it for the first time. I made three different items using the dough recipe and had my family as taste testers. I was pleasantly surprised how easy it was, how few weight watcher smart points it is and how many family begged me to make more!
The recipe is basically one part plain non-fat Greek yogurt and one part self-rising flour.
For two bagels for a total of 5 WW smart points:
1/2 Cup Plain Non-Fat Greek Yogurt
1/2 Cup Self-Rising Flour
Mix both ingredients, knead on floured surface for about 1 min (dough will be sticky so spray your hands with cooking spray). Shape dough into two rings.
Now top with egg wash (if you like), and your favorite toppings/seasonings, the possibilities are endless!
I used Trader Joe’s (I love TJ’s) Everything But The Bagel Seasoning on my two bagels.
Bake at 350 degrees for approx 22-25 min then Broil for 2 minutes, DONE.
I have to say I was so surprised at how easy this all was and how good they really tasted! My daughter and my husband (who is very picky) really enjoyed these. The the flavor kind of reminded my husband of a sourdough bread. It was a hit!
After making the bagels, I was ready to try something else. So figured I would try small cinnamon rolls.
For 8 Small Cinnamon Rolls – 2 WW Smart Points each
1 Cup Plain Non-Fat Greek Yogurt
1 Cup Self-Rising Flour
1/4 Cup Stevia
1 Tbsp Cinnamon
Same directions as before.
Then roll out dough, top with Cinnamon and Stevia. Then roll the dough up into one large log and cut pieces out onto baking sheet.
Bake at 350 Degrees for 21-25 min (depending on your oven).
When baked you can add an icing of your choosing, but I didn’t (more points)
So the cinnamon rolls turned out fine. My daughter loved them and kept wanting to eat them all. I thought they were just ok, I wish they had icing but…I didn’t want to use any points on that😜
Personal Size Pizza – 5 WW Smart Points (for the whole thing👍) 1/2 Cup Plain Non-Fat Greek Yogurt
1/2 Cup Self-Rising Flour
Mix both ingredients, knead for a minute (I added some seasonings and garlic into my dough), then let dough rest for about 10 minutes.
Spread dough out into desired shape onto lined baking pan.
Add desired sauce and toppings (don’t forget to track your toppings if you are following WW)
Bake at 450 degrees for about 14-16 minutes.
These pizzas were AMAZING!!! My daughter, husband and myself each made our own personal pizzas for dinner tonight with our own topping choices. We were honestly shocked at how delicious our pizzas turned out! First thing my daughter said was, “Mom, this so super good, way better than Papa John’s! Wow!”. My husband loved how the pizzas turned out so much he asked when an we make them again and we should add it into the weekly meal shuffle… Seriously folks, these pizzas were just too good!
I hope this has helped you in taking the plunge and making the “2 Ingredient Dough”.
I can’t wait to make more and experiment with what it can do!
