Weight Watchers Banana Bread Recipe

Pumpkin Banana Bread

I love sweet breads and breakfast breads but they are not always healthy due to the added fat from oils found in them. This Weight Watchers Banana Bread is a perfect example of a hearty breakfast bread that makes use of familiar flavors but doesn’t kill you with added fats. Make double batches of this bread and share with friends and family or freeze for use at a later date. Weighing in at 3 ½ Weight Watchers Points per slice it is a great option served for breakfast along side some low fat yogurt or fresh fruit. The recipe makes 10 slices but you can easily cut back on point value by making those slices thinner or by using it in a muffin tin which would make each muffin around 2.75-3 points each for a 12 muffin tin.



1 Box Spice Cake Mix or Yellow Cake Mix (If choosing yellow cake mix, add 1 Teaspoon Cinnamon, ½ Teaspoon Cloves and ½ Teaspoon Ginger to recipe)
1 15oz Can 100% Pumpkin Puree
3 Ripe Bananas Mashed
1 Cup Quick Oats
¾ Cup Water


Banana Pumpkin Bread Prep

1.  In a large mixing bowl mix together canned pumpkin and bananas until well blended.
2.  Mix in cake mix and oats until mostly moistened
3.  Add in water mixing well
4.  Pour into pre-sprayed loaf pan and bake at 350 degrees for 35-40 minutes or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean.

This recipe is very hearty, delicious and moist and is recommended to be kept in an airtight container in the refrigerator until ready to serve. Great heated up for a few seconds in the microwave as well. Because the fresh fruit and pumpkin in this Weight Watchers Banana Bread Recipe provide plenty of moisture there is no need for added margarine or butter on top.

Weight Watchers Pig In A Blanket Recipe

pig in a blanket

Looking for an easy Super Bowl Recipe?  Kids and adults alike love a good pig in a blanket recipe, but they are so high in fat and calories because the largest portion is a greasy hot dog or cocktail sausage.  Using this simple method we have transformed the traditional snack or lunch into a healthier Weight Watchers Pig In A Blanket Recipe that will please the whole family.  Not only does it only take moments for mom to prepare and uses easy to find items in the grocery store, it has literally half the fat and calories a traditional similar snack has.  Weighing in at only 4 Weight Watchers Points per Pig In Blanket it is still easy to include in your weekly meal plan or as a special treat alongside fresh fruits and vegetables.

Weight Watchers Pig in a Blanket Recipe

1 8-10 count can Jumbo Buttermilk Biscuits

1 package Turkey Hot Dogs or Turkey Franks

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees
  • Spray baking sheet with nonstick spray
  • On cutting board or clean surface, cut each biscuit in half and pat out into oval shape.
  • Place hot dog in center of an oval and wrap sides up and around forming a “blanket”
  • Bake at 350 degrees for 10-12 minutes or until golden brown and biscuit cooked through.



2 Tablespoons Yellow Mustard

1 Teaspoon Steak Seasoning Blend

1 Teaspoon Raw Honey

  • In small bowl mix all ingredients together until smooth.


Each of these Low Fat Pigs In Blankets is only 4 Weight Watchers Points.  You can add a half slice of fat free cheese before wrapping the hot dog to create a little extra flavor.  Just make sure to account for the points.  The Spicy Honey Dip has negligible points if used sparingly.
