Everyone knows how helpful it is to start the day off with a hearty healthy breakfast. 

But here’s the problem: too many breakfast options that are hearty enough to keep you full until lunch are loaded with calories. And so many healthy breakfast options are so light that they leave you starving just a short time later. 

Over the years, I have received a lot of questions from readers about what are good and bad options for weight watchers breakfast options.

So, I will try to answer the most common questions before sharing 35 of my favorite weight watchers breakfast ideas from around the web. I have tried to highlight recipes that are both hearty AND healthy. 

I know a lot of my readers use some of the older weight watchers plans–and my philosophy is that if you should definitely do what works for you!

So below, you will see me include point totals from some of the classic green, blue, and purple ww plans in addition to the new plan. The easiest way to get the most up to date points info is to just plug it into your WW app. 

If there are any questions that I missed, let me know if the comments section below.

Frequently asked questions about Weight Watchers breakfast

Is oatmeal a free food on Weight Watchers?

I love oatmeal. And using oatmeal is a great way to build a breakfast that is both healthy and filling. 

According to Heathline, “Oats are among the healthiest grains on earth. They’re a gluten-free whole grain and a great source of important vitamins, minerals, fiber, and antioxidants.

Studies show that oats and oatmeal have many health benefits. These include weight loss, lower blood sugar levels, and a reduced risk of heart disease.”

Weight Watchers rates oats and oatmeal – depending on the type – as a ZeroPoint food. These fiber-loaded, complex carbohydrates can be a great way to start your day.

Do you have to eat breakfast on Weight Watchers?

While there is no single answer that fits everyone, plenty of studies have shown and many dieticians recognize the importance of breakfast. More importantly, what you eat matters more. Avoid refined carbohydrates, especially sugar, and limit fat. 

For breakfast on the go, look for a low point cereal to have with almond milk – only 1 point! – for a healthy breakfast without the bigger time investment. 

And on those days where you just don’t have time to fit breakfast in, opt for Low Point Weight Watchers Snacks (With Point Totals).

Can you eat regular food on Weight Watchers?

I love this question. Anyone who has ever started a diet knows exactly where this is coming from. 

One of the best things about about weight watchers is that there are no foods that are completely off-limits. 

This means that yes, you can eat regular breakfast foods on weight watchers. You just need to track how many points you are using and make sure you are using high point ww foods in moderation.  

Is Yogurt a zero point food on weight watchers ?

Yogurt is a delicious high-protein healthy food. 

According to Healthline, yogurt is “very nutritious, and eating it regularly may boost several aspects of your health. For example, yogurt has been found to reduce the risk of heart disease and osteoporosis, as well as aid in weight management.”

So it’s not surprising that weight watchers has made several types of yogurt zero-point foods. 

Basically, the rule is that if the yogurt is plain and non-fat then it’s zero points–this applies to greek yogurt, soy yogurt, and traditional yogurt. 

When you start adding additional flavors and more fat, then the yogurt will have some ww points. The easiest way to check is to just plug it into your WW app. 

Are eggs still zero points on weight watchers?

Eggs are a great source of protein, are full of vitamins and minerals, and are a ZeroPoint food on Weight Watchers. You can eat them boiled, scrambled, over easy, and if you’re watching your cholesterol you can easily just eat the egg whites. 

I love these Egg White Breakfast Cups, and they are just as tasty without the bacon.

Are fruits and vegetables zero points on weight watchers?

According to Harvard’s School of Public Health, “A diet rich in vegetables and fruits can lower blood pressure, reduce the risk of heart disease and stroke, prevent some types of cancer, lower risk of eye and digestive problems, and have a positive effect upon blood sugar, which can help keep appetite in check.”

And this means including fresh fruits and vegetables with your breakfast is a great way to make your meal both healthy and hearty. 

As you’d expect, weight watchers recognize the importance  of fruits and vegetables. And for this reason they have made ALMOST every fruit and vegetable a zero point food.

The only exception is starchy vegetables–which will cost points.

This doesn’t  mean you can never eat potatoes for breakfast again! Check out my weight watchers friendly Turkey hash brown breakfast casserole if you don’t believe me! It just means you have to count those potatoes as part of your daily points budget. 

What can I eat for breakfast on weight watchers?

Sometimes you just have a morning. A plate of crispy bacon is an excellent remedy to that kind of mood!

Weight Watchers Turkey Sausage

23. Turkey Sausage Breakfast Patties

Pretty much everyone knows turkey sausages are a much healthier option than other meats, especially if you’re buying brands with the most ‘pure’ ingredients. This means mostly turkey instead of added extras, or ingredients you don’t recognize. These breakfast patties can be eaten on their own, with eggs, or even in a breakfast sandwich.

egg white frittata on white plate

24. Egg White Frittata

This recipe can be changed up according to your tastes or just whatever you have on hand. I use feta cheese, peas, onions, broccoli, and red bell peppers, and it is absolutely delicious. It can be made with whole eggs but this recipe was designed to be an even lighter version of a frittata and with less cholesterol.

25. Blended Overnight Oats

Overnight oats are perfect if you’re always rushed in the mornings. They are incredibly versatile because you can choose whatever milk option you want, and there are countless flavor combinations. As well as being easy and delicious, it has plenty of health benefits too. Oats are great for heart health as well as slow-release energy, reducing any energy spikes and crashes, full of fiber, and essential vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants.

Cinnamon Roll Overnight Oats in clear bowl

26. Cinnamon Roll Overnight Oats

This is one of the many flavors of overnight oats you can create. It features ground cinnamon, chia seeds, a splash of coconut milk, and skim milk. You can, of course, use an alternative milk if you wish. I also add in chunks of ripe banana but extra sweetness can be achieved with stevia instead. It will keep those sweet cravings under control because your body will feel like it’s been treated to dessert for breakfast with this creation but without the energy crashes!

plated vegan tofu scramble

27. Southwest Tofu Scramble

This is so delicious it can definitely be used as a breakfast for dinner dish as well. Packed with protein from the tofu and black beans, but brimming with nutrients from all the vegetables, it’s everything you want in a healthy breakfast.

Homemade vegan granola in clear glass jar

28. Homemade Vegan Granola

A tasty homemade granola recipe that’s not loaded with sugar or fat is extremely hard to come by. That’s what spurred me to create this recipe that comes in at only five Weight Watchers points per serving. There are lots of options for flavorings in the recipe, so you could actually make a different granola every week!

Healthy breakfast stromboli

29. Breakfast Stromboli

Stromboli isn’t just for lunch! This recipe shows you how to turn it into a meal society will accept for breakfast. It’s basically bacon, potatoes, and vegetables wrapped up in pizza dough. Then it’s baked and sliced up into portions, perfect for entertaining or breakfasts for the week!

oatmeal cup with yogurt strawberry and chocolate

30. Baked Oatmeal Cups

These are nice and crispy, more akin to granola than oatmeal in texture. Oats are a good way to start your day because they will boost your energy all morning, and offer a plethora of health benefits. These cups can be topped with different things each day so you don’t get bored. Think Greek yogurt for some protein, and then fruits like strawberries, blueberries, or bananas. Even chia seeds or other seeds/nuts will work too.

weight watchers tater tot casserole

31. Tater Tot Breakfast Casserole

An easy way to produce that hash brown flavor without making it yourself is to use tater tots! That’s right, they aren’t just for kids to eat for dinner. This casserole is packed with ground turkey for a lean protein hit, and delicious breakfast flavor is added with cheese, bacon, eggs, and herbs.

Weight watchers Air Fryer Cinnamon Roll Bites on white plate

32. Air Fryer Cinnamon Roll Bites

In a bid to create as many types of cinnamon roll-inspired breakfast foods as possible, I bring you cinnamon roll bites. They are cooked in the air fryer to make them deliciously crispy on the outside, but super soft and gooey on the inside. These are really easy too, the recipe dictates store-bought dough which is chopped up and flavored before air frying. Simple but not overly fattening, perfect for a quick breakfast that still brings the fun factor!

lemon blueberry pancake

33. Baked Blueberry Lemon Square Pancakes

This is a fantastic way to cook pancakes. I don’t know about you, but I find it can be so time-consuming cooking them in a pan. This way they are all being cooked in one go, and you simply slice them up into squares. Everyone can eat at the same time, you’re not standing over a pan for an hour, or you can store them and reheat them during the week. There is no downside to this recipe!

flatout jam pancake sandwich

34. Flatout Jam Pancake Sandwich

A jam sandwich is an iconic British lunch, but I’ve transformed it into a breakfast food fit for the rest of the world! Using flatout bread smeared with jam, you then fold it and smear it again, before frying it up and pouring over the ‘batter’ on both sides while in the pan. Confused? You’ll just have to try it out and see!

mini protein waffles on white plate

35. Mini Protein Waffles

Combining waffles with protein makes me so happy because it makes these dessert-style breakfasts a much more sustainable option for breakfast. We need a bit of protein to fuel our body in the mornings, and often waffles and pancakes are just loaded with refined carbs. This recipe just goes ahead and throws in protein powder to ramp up that protein content, so it’s much higher than just from the eggs and Greek yogurt.

And I’ll leave you with the full recipe for my Blueberry Maple Breakfast Bake.

35 Easy Weight Watchers Breakfast Ideas

By: Drizzle
Servings: 6
Prep: 1 hour
Cook: 40 minutes
Total: 1 hour 40 minutes
This Blueberry Maple Bake is the perfect way to satisfy your craving for sweet breakfast while staying on track.


  • 1 package great value biscuits, 7.5oz *I buy these in the U.S, if you are in Canada you can use the smallest size you can find and weigh out 7.5oz for accurate point count
  • 2 cups fresh blueberries, frozen can be used as well
  • 4 eggs
  • 1 cup milk *I use unsweetened cashew milk simply because I don't consume much dairy, you can use any milk however it may change the points
  • 1/2 cup sugar free maple syrup *mine is pictured, 1/2= 5SP
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 Tbsp sugar
  • 1.5 Tbsp flour
  • 2 tsp light butter, melted


  • Bake the biscuits according to the package, it is best if you can bake them the night before so they are not too fresh and soft.
  • Spray a 9×13 casserole dish with some cooking spray.
  • Cut each of the biscuits into 12 pieces, spread pieces evenly over the bottom of the dish.
  • Spread out the fresh blueberries on top of the biscuit pieces.
  • In a bowl or large measuring cup whisk together the eggs, milk, syrup, vanilla and cinnamon.
  • Pour evenly over the biscuits and blueberries, cover and let sit in the fridge for 30 min – 1 hour, if you want to make this up overnight that is fine too. You can bake right away but for best results let it soak in the fridge for a bit first.
  • In a small bowl mix together the sugar, flour and melted butter til it forms a crumb, sprinkle evenly over top of the bake.
  • Heat oven to 350F and bake for 40 minutes.
  • Makes 6 servings, store in the fridge and it will freeze well.
