1. Slow Cooker Coffee Cake

I love this recipe because it’s a hands-off way to prepare the moistest coffee cake you’ll ever sink your fork into. With four points per portion, you can have your cake, eat it too, and slide into your prettiest summer dresses. Topped with a light and sweet cinnamon streusel that plays beautifully with the dense cake, it’s all of your favorite coffeehouse flavors mixed together with none of the residual guilt.

2. Weight Watchers Breakfast Casserole

Breakfast casseroles are some of the best brunch dishes because they can feed all your nearest and dearest and come jam-packed with comforting flavors like velvety eggs, generous chunks of diced ham, potatoes, and cheese. This version adds in some veggies to bump up the nutritional value and clocks in at just five points per serving.

3. Oat Banana Blueberry Muffins

No brunch is complete without muffins. These ones have the tart zing of blueberries, a banana base, and a crumble of oats for interest and texture. Plus, you won’t even need to worry about the butter thanks to a flavorful burst of brown sugar and vanilla baked right into each one. At just two points per serving, these muffins do double duty, satisfying your sweet tooth and giving you a dose of delicious carbs.

4. Healthy Hash Brown Casserole

This casserole is my secret weapon for busy brunches because you assemble it the night before, pop it into the oven, and be ready to go. At five Weight Watchers points per serving, it’s a healthy answer to its calorie-dense counterparts, and you’ll still enjoy all of the fantastic flavors like yummy sage and oregano sausage, hearty center-cut bacon, crisp hashbrowns, and gooey reduced-fat shredded cheese. Pop some green onions on the top of a splash of color.

5. Chicken Frittata

Frittatas are a sophisticated way to use eggs, and they’re just as easy as popping them into a scramble. This southwestern-style frittata is full of sass and spice, spiked with meaty chunks of chicken and plenty of citrus for freshness. I know that cilantro is the most hotly contested herb out there. Personally, I love it, but if you don’t, feel free to leave it off or garnish this brunchy beauty with some parsley instead. It all comes in at just one Weight Watchers point.

6. Pumpkin Cream Cheese Muffins

You don’t have to wait for sweater weather to break out these sumptuous pumpkin cream cheese muffins. They taste just as good on your July brunch table, and you can use canned pumpkin puree to make them in a flash. With brown sugar, pumpkin base, and a decadent swirl of light cream cheese and vanilla on top, they have tons of complex flavors and taste just like dessert, just with four points per serving.

7. Breakfast Wonton Cups

These delightful treats have everything I love about breakfast in a few crunchy bites. Since the wonton wrappers work as utensils, they’re perfect for your al fresco brunch tapas parties. Fill each crisp wonton wrapper with hearty hash browns, onion, green pepper, and low-calorie sausage of your choice. Cheese, bacon, and a dash of Cajun seasoning round off these three-point treats nicely.   

French Toast Casserole in White Baking Dish

8. French Toast Casserole

Despite the name, this casserole can go from your most upscale holiday table to a lowkey brunch with friends. Each bite is bursting with decadent custard and sweet peach pieces, and it finishes with a warm cinnamon, nutmeg, and vanilla note. It’s only three Weight Watchers points per serving and strikes the ideal note between nostalgic breakfast food and dessert.  

9. Mini Raspberry White Chocolate Cupcakes

Raspberry and white chocolate are straight-up made for each other, with the tartness of the raspberry playing perfectly off the silky sweetness of creamy white chocolate. These two-point mini cupcakes combine both flavors in a super pretty package full of miniature white chocolate chips and velvety white cake and are crowned with a fresh raspberry right on top. They’re light and bright and use up summer’s most favorite fruit.

10. Apple Fritter Bread

Apple fritters are my kryptonite, but they are often crammed with tons of calories when you get them from the store. That’s why I love this simple recipe that invokes all my favorite flavors but only costs me five Weight Watchers points. It starts off with a sweet base full of brown sugar, cinnamon, and apple sauce and is scented with vanilla for that perfect hint of sweetness. Stir in some generous chunks of cinnamon-dusted apples and top it all off with a powdered sugar glaze, and you’ll get a bread that rivals anything you would find in a bakery.

Migas Tex Mex breakfast, featuring eggs scrambled with tortilla crumbs, cheese, and fresh veggies.

11. Weight Watchers Migas

Three-point migas are your brunchy answer to nachos, and they win on quite a few fronts. They’re a guaranteed crowd-pleaser; you probably have all the ingredients in your kitchen, and they come together in less than half an hour from prep to plate. Crumbled cottage cheese, a hearty sprinkle of taco seasoning, and fresh vegetables like jalapenos and tomatoes bring the dish to life, and the combination of nacho chips and eggs is absolute perfection. 

12.Sour Cream Donuts

Sour cream donuts are another bakery fave and another seemingly innocent item that can sink your diet. Fortunately, this recipe is just the ticket if you’re searching for the tang of sour cream in a rich, sweet donut base, and it will only set you back four Weight Watchers points. Plus, these treats are ideal for your next brunch because they go superbly with a steaming cup of coffee. Greek yogurt does a lot of heavy lifting in this dish, lending it a silky texture without adding additional calories. It also provides that signature tang, along with light sour cream. Topped with a simple milk and powdered sugar glaze, these donuts sing.

Huevos Rancheros platted with tortillas

13. Huevos Rancheros

Whenever I want something guaranteed to be nearly universally liked, this two-point huevos rancheros recipe is my go-to. Plus, it’s got plenty of fiber thanks to the beans, so you can be sure to stay full for longer. Huevos rancheros consist of corn tortillas topped with a smooth onion, bean, and taco seasoning puree and served with fiery salsa and a perfectly cooked egg resting on top. You can make the eggs to order and the bean puree ahead of time. Don’t skimp on the lime juice and salt and pepper, as that bright hit of citrus really brings the whole dish together.

Next time you crave weekday brunch with your friends, skip the restaurant. Instead, keep your wallet fat and your meal skinny by serving up some of these tested-and-loved favorites. No matter whether you are in the mood for savory, cheesy eggs and hash browns or a rich bite of fruity and creamy French toast, there’s a skinny, Weight Watcher’s friendly recipe with your name on it.
