Even if you're not into baking your own bread, you can still create this gorgeous aroma in your own kitchen by cooking part-baked bread or baguettes.
If you're trying to lose weight or following the Weight Watchers ProPoints plan, Weight Watchers have their own ‘part-baked’ petit pains (little bread) baguettes which have 111 calories each and 3 ProPoints.
Weight Watchers 4 Petit Pains are part-baked mini baguettes. They’re sealed in two separate sections so you can open one half and keep the others for another time. They have a shelf life of a couple of months so you don’t need to keep them in the freezer.
They couldn’t be easier to bake. Just sprinkle with a little water then pop into a preheated oven for 8-10 minutes.
When they’re ready, you have the perfect, hot mini baguettes, with a crusty top and soft bready centre. Mmmm. Just don’t smother them in with butter (if you're counting calories) as they’ll soak it up like a sponge!

Although Weight Watchers Petit Pains have the appearance and flavour of a white bread, they're a good source of fibre with 3.4g per petit pain or 6.8g per 100g.

I found these in Poundland where they have a large range of Weight Watchers products.
