1. Weight Watchers Bourbon-Infused Sweet Potato Casserole 

I adore sweet potatoes because they’re one of those foods that can walk the line between dinner staple and dessert showstopper, and they’re super healthy for you, too. This inspired casserole is nine Weight Watcher points per serving and is packed with vanilla, maple, creamy sweet potatoes, and a celebratory splash of fine bourbon. It reminds me of my mom’s Thanksgiving sweet potato casserole but with a sophisticated twist and a deep maple flavor.  

2. Weight Watchers Apple Cranberry Crisp

This recipe celebrates summer while also giving a nod to the fall with the inspired combination of juicy apples and tart cranberries. The brown sugar balances the stronger flavors with a sweet caramel undertone, and the whole thing is topped off with quick-cooking Quaker oats, a generous sprinkle of brown sugar, and some walnuts for extra texture. At eight points per serving, it’s worth every one.

3. Weight Watchers Bread Pudding

Baked bread pudding is the ultimate casserole dish dessert, and at two points per serving, you can guiltlessly savor generous servings of this cinnamon and apple studded treat. Pieces of bread and chunks of apple get a custard glow-up that’s deceptively low on sugar, thanks to a sprinkle of Stevia. Plus, it all comes together in under an hour, making it the ideal dish for a last-minute summertime get-together.

4. Weight Watchers Apple Crisp

The best thing about crisps is that the longer you leave them, the more all the yummy flavors infuse each other. This two-point delight gets its kick from apple pie spice and decadent brown sugar, and the quick-cooking oats add a ton of texture. Since it’s so low in points, you can easily serve it with a spoonful of low-fat ice cream to offset the gooey baked dessert and add a touch more sweetness.

5. Weight Watchers Cinnamon Roll Casserole

This six-point casserole is my go-to dish for summer brunches and BBQs because it features all of your favorite nostalgic flavors, like sweet vanilla icing and rich cinnamon. Plus, putting it together is a snap if you use pre-made, reduced-fat cinnamon rolls. All you need are the rolls, a splash of milk, vanilla, cinnamon, and a few eggs to whip up a dessert casserole that will have everyone asking for seconds.  

6. Weight Watchers Berry Breakfast Casserole

I love this recipe because it celebrates some of the best flavors of the summer and only sets you back two Weight Watcher’s points. Plus, you can customize it with the frozen berries of your choice, so it’s a great way to clean out the freezer. Stir in a cup and a half of oats, milk, cinnamon, and vanilla extract and bake until bubbly, and you will have a light and bright casserole that’s party-ready.

7. Weight Watchers Pineapple Dessert

This taste-of-the-tropics dessert is excellent when you want to serve something fresh, fruity, and spoon-ready that centers on something not always on the menu. Plus, you can snack on a square for just five Weight Watchers points. Filled with fresh, sweet, and tart pineapple, a little lemon, and sugar, it juxtaposes sweet and tart flavors marvelously, and the texture is the perfect balance between a cake, a casserole, and a bread pudding.

8. Weight Watchers Peach Cobbler

Is a summertime BBQ really an event if there’s not a peach cobbler there? I say ‘no,’ which is why this three-point dessert is always on my recipe roster. You can use any peaches that you have on hand: frozen, fresh, or canned with do. Combined with nutmeg, cinnamon, and vanilla extract, these hot-weather fruits take on a marvelously sweet and nuanced flavor that pairs ideally with the crunchy topping.

9. Weight Watchers Strawberry Crisp

With two freestyle points per serving, this strawberry-spangled crisp is bursting with jewel-red fruits and topped with a vanilla and oat crisp that bakes up to a glorious bubble after just half an hour. It’s super simple to put together, and you can use either frozen or fresh strawberries in the base. It’s the perfect way to use up those farmer’s market fruits and make the most of strawberry season while you can.

10. Weight Watchers Bread Pudding with Banana and Chocolate

Chocolate and banana are a pair made in taste heaven, and when you combine them with velvety bread pudding in a deep casserole dish, they are next-level good. This recipe is worth every one of the six Weight Watcher points that it will set you back. Since there are just a few key ingredients, using high-quality vanilla bean paste to infuse the bread pudding with a rich and authentic flavor is essential. What I love most about this recipe is its versatility; it’s guaranteed to please the kids but sophisticated enough for even the most elegant adult at your BBQ.

11. Weight Watchers Blueberry Peach Breakfast Casserole

Bursting with tart blueberries and satiny peach wedges, this breakfast casserole combines some of your favorite summer flavors in unexpected ways and is only seven points per serving. It’s a great way to get some antioxidants into your system while also satisfying your sweet tooth. Using frozen fruit, pre-made biscuits, and a few pantry staples like flour and sugar, you can put together this dazzling casserole delight in no time. 

12. Weight Watchers Caramel Apple Bread Pudding

Featuring the winning combo of caramel and apples, this bread pudding only tastes like it will cost you a week’s worth of points when it’s just three points per mouthwatering serving. The trick lies in some intelligent swaps, like unsweetened almond milk and Splenda, to add to the satiny texture and rich flavor. Sugar-free caramel syrup beautifully offsets tart Granny Smith apples and the vanilla and cinnamon-scented base ties the whole casserole together. Delish! 

13. Weight Watchers Pumpkin Spice French Toast Casserole

Pumpkin spice season is fast approaching, and I, for one, am totally here for it. Bridge the gap between your August BBQs and PSL time with this four-point French toast casserole that gets its silky texture from pumpkin puree and the right amount of sweetness and sass from pumpkin pie spice and vanilla. I like to serve mine with a sprinkle of powdered icing sugar to invoke the idea of French toast, but you can leave it off, and the flavors will still be on point.

These Weight Watcher friendly dessert casseroles are bound to be a hit at your next BBQ. From summery fare to dishes featuring more autumnal flavors, there’s an easy, deep-dish dessert that you can bake up in no time on this list. Once you’ve tried a few of these, I guarantee you that you’ll be making them all of the time.
