These Weight Watchers Breakfast Ideas will keep your meal planning fresh and different without having to eat the same thing all the time! These are healthy breakfast recipes even if you aren't on Weight Watchers, perfect for families too! 

Delicious breakfasts don't always have to screw your entire day's calorie count. I know we all get tired of cereal and smoothies, so I've compiled a list of my favorite Weight Watchers breakfast recipes. If you haven't started Weight Watchers yet, you can read about the new program or get started for free!

Be sure that if you if aren't a fan of drinking water, that you really focus on incorporating more into your diet. This is good advice for anyone!

If you are already on Weight Watchers, or just trying to lose weight, in general, find out how to break through a weight-loss plateau and what to do if you think this program isn't working for you!

If you have your own recipes, use the free WW points calculator to find out how many Points (or Points Plus) your recipe would be.

Some of these recipes may use an Instant Pot or an Air Fryer. Both of these make healthy cooking a breeze with minimal cleanup and significantly reduce cooking time. The Instant Pot is a brand of pressure cooker and air fryers cook by convection. You can make just about anything in either of these. They also come in handy around the holidays, during the summer so you don't have to heat up your house, and even for small families.

Air Fryer Eggs in a Basket  (2 Smartpoints) + VIDEO!

These are super fun to make! Great for a Saturday or Sunday morning! If you don't have an air fryer you can always use a pan on the stovetop. To make these virtually mess-free, I highly recommend the air fryer parchment paper liners! They are slotted and still allow the air to come through to cook, but hardly any cleanup when it's finished. Be sure to watch the video so you can see the easy cleanup!


Cinnamon Apple Oatmeal  (4 Smartpoints)

Often prepacked oatmeal is loaded with added sugar and points, but now you can make oatmeal a low point breakfast! Great for the fall and you can use fresh apples.

I share delicious, Weight Watchers - Friendly recipes and chat regularly about online business & blogging!!


  1. I grew up on weight watchers recipes. There was this lemon pasta that had chicken broth that you could easily substitute with veggie broth.

  2. Excellent post. I was checking constantly this weblog and I’m inspired! Extremely helpful information particularly the closing phase :) I deal with such information much. I was seeking this certain info for a long time. Thank you and good luck.

  3. What does it mean when you show both points and then the points plus?

    My understanding is that I have 26 points each day and then an additional 49 points each week.

    If I were to make Pineapple French Toast – Points: 4, Points Plus: 4, is it just 4 points, or do I also have to add the additional 4 Points Plus points also?

    Confusing :(((

    1. Some people do the points.. some do the points plus. You do either or, not both. Does that make sense? If it says 4 points, and 4 points plus, it means the points values are the same on both plans. :)
