Weight Watchers Recipe of the Day: Slow Cooker Carrots with Apple Glaze
Here’s an easy side dish with only 4-ingredients that will help jazz up any meal.
The Skinny on Slow Cooker Carrots with Apple Glaze
These slow cooker carrots with apple glaze were a big hit when I recently served them alongside a yummy crock pot beer braised beef (that I will get posted soon).
Sweet and delicious, I’ll definitely be making them again.
I think these slow cooker carrots would be good with orange marmalade—or apricot jam—instead of apple jelly too.
According to my calculations, each serving has about 104 calories, *3 Weight Watchers PointsPlus, *4 WW Freestyle SmartPoints.
