1 1/4 cups granulated sugar
1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1 1/2 teaspoons ground cinnamon

My name is Sarah, I am a weight watchers member since 2005 and a lifetime member since 2007... I lost more than 112 lbs in the first 2 years... and now weight watchers became for me a lifestyle and not a diet.
