Weight Watchers Zero Point and Low Point Breakfast Recipes
For many folks who are trying to eat better breakfast a healthy breakfast is the most important meal of the day.
Looking for delicious zero point recipes or low point Weight Watchers breakfast recipes? You've come to the right place. We've pulled together this amazing list of delicious healthy weight watchers recipes and breakfast ideas all with 4 Points or less.
The Weight Watchers Program offers an extensive list of Zero Point Foods perfect for breakfast such as eggs, egg whites, fresh fruit, vegetables, tofu, lean meat, fish, beans and non-fat dairy such as plain fat-free yogurt and cottage cheese. These ingredients can form the foundation of a wide array of healthy morning meals.
There are many reasons why it is a great idea to start your day with a zero points or low points breakfast. First, they are nourishing providing you excellent fuel to power your day. When I eat a good breakfast I am much less likely to snack during the day and much more likely to stay within my daily points budget.
Zero point meals set you up for a successful rest of your day. They leave you with plenty of wiggle room to deal with unexpected events that may require extra points, such as a last minute lunch or dinner out.
You can also use these zero point breakfast recipes and low point recipes to help you on days when you know you’ll need more points later in the day, or when your weekly points allowance is running low.
Breakfast Recipes with 0 WW Points
Fresh Fruit Salad is a great way to kick off the day. Brimming with flavor, texture and color, fruit salad is one of my favorite WW recipes that doesn't require a recipe 🙂 Just use whatever combination of fresh fruit you have on hand. There are so many options to choose from: melon, oranges, grapefruit, grapes, apples, bananas, kiwi, berries, peaches, pears, etc.
Or create a tropical fruit salad by combining fresh papaya, mango, pineapple, bananas and grated coconut!
2-Ingredient Banana Pancakes
These delicious and unbelievably simple skinny pancakes are best enjoyed right after cooking. With just eggs and a banana, you can have zero point pancakes. Many folks like to add ⅛ tsp. of baking powder and flavorings such as vanilla and cinnamon to this popular Weight Watchers recipe. (found at Eating Well)
Banana Syrup (Pancake and French Toast Topping)
Mashed banana with vanilla and cinnamon, heated until warm. It is a luxurious sugar-free healthy alternative to traditional pancake and french toast toppings. (found at Snack Girl)
Zero Point Applesauce (Instant Pot or Stovetop)

A tofu scramble is almost as simple as an egg scramble. You crumble the tofu, heat it for about 8 minutes, and add spices. The tofu is already “cooked” so all you are doing is heating it up and releasing some of the water so it is more solid. A great plant based alternative. (found at Snack Girl)
Turkey Breakfast Sausage Patties

I enjoy reading the zero point foods, but as soon as I see "banana", I'm out. I'm diabetic.Do you have any idea where I can find recipes, such as this, for diabetics?
The Diabetes Tailored Zero Points Foods List DOES NOT include fruit, non-fat dairy or corn and popcorn. These are 0 Points foods for those who do NOT follow the Diabetes Specific Plan. Hope this makes sense. ~Martha
