Power Sticks

I keep hearing a lot of questions about breakfast, and things to get out of that egg rut. A few years ago I came across this recipe on the Weight Watchers Website, called Power Sticks. Since I have been so busy lately and eating breakfast on the run, I thought I would whip up a batch today, and share the recipe with you.

Power Sticks

Prep Time 10 min
Cook Time 0 min
Level of Difficulty Easy

"Prepare these in triple batches and keep them in the freezer for up to eight weeks. They make power-packed breakfasts in a flash."

1/2 cup chunky peanut butter
3 Tbsp honey
2/3 cup corn flakes, crushed
1/3 cup instant fat-free dry milk

1.Knead ingredients together. Form into 6 sticks and wrap individually in wax paper. Store in an airtight container.

Serves 6
POINTS per serving 4


In today's recipe I used reduced fat peanut butter to reduce calories, and bran flakes instead of corn flakes to up the fiber level. They were still super yummy. Just don't make the mistake I did and crush your corn flakes before you measure out the 2/3 of a cup. If you do it will be too dry, and not for a nice dough to form into sticks.
