This recipe is a fun twist on standard French toast. It’s got very few ingredients and is surprisingly easy to make, but the results are delicious!
Two things of note: you need to use pumpkin puree, not pumpkin pie filling or end up using an extra point. Also, replacing the sugar with sweetener decreases your points by 1.
Perhaps you don’t have time for a leisurely brunch or breakfast and need to grab something to go. But don’t be tempted to pull into a fast-food drive-thru.

You can’t have a holiday brunch without a peppermint mocha latte! But why spend $5 at a big name coffee chain when you can make your own at home for far less, and decrease your sugar intake?
This recipe uses sugar-free syrups, a chocolate protein shake, and your coffee of choice. You can skip the whipped topping and sprinkles if you wish.
If chocolate and peppermint isn’t your thing in terms of coffee holiday flavors, then maybe you’d like gingerbread instead. This particular recipe isn’t just WW-friendly, but it’s also Paleo and Whole30 as well!
Note that this recipe uses almond milk, but if you have a nut allergy feel free to use a different milk of your choice.
Once in a while you may want to forego the caffeine and have a nice, steaming cup of hot cocoa instead. Avoid those boxed hot cocoa mixes with tons of sugar and artificial-tasting chocolate. Instead, try this recipe that uses cocoa powder and a bit of vanilla extract. Add sugar free whipped cream on top (0 points), or a marshmallow (for 1 point)

It sounds crazy that something as decadent as cinnamon rolls can be low-fat, but they do exist! This recipe is incredibly easy since it uses a can of premade, refrigerated cinnamon roll dough (reduced fat, of course). As for the icing, you can make your own WW version or use the one that comes with the package and add a bit of milk to it to thin it out.
Since eggs are worth 0 points, it’s not surprising that there are many WW brunch or breakfast recipes that use them. However, for this particular dish, the author noted that each brand of tortillas varies in points, but if you have the app, you can scan the barcodes at the grocery store to find each brand’s points.
Once again, this is a very fast and easy recipe thanks to the can of premade dough (in this case, crescent rolls). The author was inspired by Pillsbury’s recipe, which she modified to make it even more WW-friendly by using reduced-fat crescent rolls, reduced-fat cheddar, and turkey sausage links. This allowed her to shave off 2 points from the original recipe’s 7 points.
