To calculate Weight Watchers points for your Baked Zucchini Chips recipe, we need to consider the primary ingredients and their quantities. The Weight Watchers points are generally calculated based on calories, sugar, saturated fat, and protein content. However, for simple recipes with whole ingredients, we can use some approximations based on known point values of the ingredients.

Ingredients Breakdown

  • Zucchini: Zucchini is generally zero points on Weight Watchers as it is a non-starchy vegetable.
  • Olive Oil Spray: The olive oil spray is used lightly, so the points will depend on the amount used. For instance, 1 teaspoon of olive oil is approximately 1 point.

Estimating Points

Assuming the olive oil spray used is equivalent to 1 teaspoon of olive oil:

  1. Zucchini: 0 points
  2. Olive Oil Spray (1 teaspoon): 1 point
  3. Salt, Pepper, Paprika: 0 points (as these are used in minimal quantities)

Total Points Calculation

  • Total Points: 1 point for the entire recipe (mainly from the olive oil spray)

Serving Size

If the entire recipe serves 2 people, then each serving would be approximately 0.5 points.

This is a rough estimate. For a precise calculation, you can use the Weight Watchers app or their online calculator by entering the exact quantities and types of ingredients used.
