It can be tricky to keep calories low when the urge to snack hits. I am a carb lover, and can easily over-do it when it comes to consuming too much when I’m hungry and need a snack. I’ve found that staying mindful while consuming is key to snacking in a more healthful way.
I was recently asked by Weight Watchers® to share that their products can be found at Walmart & how they have made mindful, low-calorie snacking so much easier with a variety of products. They have popcorn, string cheese and more! My new fav? Fiber-filled Oroweat® Sandwich Thins!
I picked up a couple of packages of Oroweat® Sandwich Thins from Walmart, knowing that they are Weight Watchers® endorsed and just 100 calories made me eager to get creative with them. 100 calories each means that half of one is just 50 calories! That is way lower calorie & fewer SmartPoints® than regular bread. With this sort of portion control and low calories, I feel free to top them with all kinds of goodness which makes a satisfying and hearty snack.

8 Simple & Delicious Sandwich Thin Snack Recipes
CREAM CHEESE & BERRIES SANDWICH THIN
Toast your sandwich thin. Spread with cream cheese. Top with your choice of berries & dust lightly with powdered sugar.
CINNAMON-SUGAR SANDWICH THIN ROUND
Toast sandwich thin. Spread with butter. Sprinkle with a cinnamon-sugar mixture. I’ve read that the perfect ratio of cinnamon to sugar is 1/4 cup cinnamon to 1 Tablespoon of Cinnamon.
PEANUT BUTTER CLOUD SANDWICH THIN ROUND
This one is delicious! Toast the sandwich round, spread with peanut butter, top with marshmallows. Pop under the broiler for just a minute, until the marshmallows puff and brown to your liking. Be careful…they burn easily!
GARLIC HERB TOMATO SANDWICH THIN APPETIZER
Spread toasted or non-toasted (I liked non-toasted for this one) sandwich thin with a prepared garlic-herbed cheese spread. Cut into triangles & top with a halved grape tomato. So delicious and makes a pretty appetizer platter!
GARLIC BREAD SANDWICH THIN ROUNDS
I made spaghetti for dinner tonight and served these garlic sandwich rounds along with it. Much healthier for you than a big hunk of french bread. Did you know these Oroweat® Sandwich Thins have 5 grams of fiber and no high-fructose corn syrup? That makes me happy.
PIZZA SANDWICH THIN ROUNDS
My teen girls gobbled these up as an after-school snack. Toast the sandwich thin, top with pizza sauce (I just used spaghetti sauce), sprinkle with cheese & stick under the broiler until the cheese melts. Top with a chiffonade of basil.
INSIDE-OUT GRILLED CHEESE SANDWICH THIN
This was so gooey and satisfying! Spread the inside of the sandwich thin with butter. Place buttered side down on a pan over medium heat. Sprinkle with cheese and top with the other buttered half. Flip when browned on one side, and cook until the cheese is melted.
I plan on using these easy snack recipes during our late afternoon snacking sessions. My kitchen is full of teenage girls every day after school who are all looking for a hearty snack, so I will keep these sandwich thins around so they can get creative themselves.
