Mince Pie Baked Oats

We aren’t putting up our Christmas tree until a little later this year (as we are getting a real one again and I got it a bit too early last year….I was just too excited and it ended up dropping lots straight after the big day!) and so I’ve decided that in the meantime, I’ll do everything else to get into the festive spirit before then. After discovering the most amazing Mince Pie Filled Cookies in Asda this week, I decided to come up with my own version of a sweet mince meat treat and this recipe was the perfect solution. It so quick and easy to rustle up and feels like a real breakfast treat!

You will see that I’ve calculated the SP’s for each of the new plans below which I will do for all of my recipes moving forwards. Eventually I hope to be able to repoint all of my previous recipes too but this may take a little time so you may need to pop them back through your own recipe builder if you are on the green or purple plan now (all of the previous recipes are pointed for the old plan which is now the blue plan).

Apple Pie Baked Oats – 6sp

Coming back into the colder mornings, one of my favourite warming autumn breakfasts is baked oats. Easy to prepare in advance or on the day, they are a lovely filling breakfast which feel like a real treat at the same time.

Having had a craving for apple pie recently, I decided to combine the two dishes together to come up with something that would fill me until lunch but would satisfy my need for something sweet and fruity.

Drop Scones– 6sp

One thing I’m asked for a lot is a banana free version of the flourless pancakes that are popular with us WWers so when I woke up the other morning with a craving for some drop scones (or scotch pancakes as many call them), I set about creating myself some banana free, WW friendly ones (albeit these ones do have flour in them!!). The result was lovely, tasting very close to the real thing for many less points!

Homemade 0sp Berry Compote

One of my favourite, go to, quick and easy breakfasts is this delicious berry compote served with fat free Greek yoghurt (my favourite is Total 0% Fat Greek Yogurt as it’s lovely and thick) and a sprinkling of either Weight Watchers Strawberry granola (available in classes or in the online shop) or my current favourite, Grape nut (I get mine in Sainsbury’s) with a little honey.  It is such a simple recipe and for the grand total of 0sp, really livens up breakfast time.

Poached Eggs with Romesco Sauce, Parma Ham, Wilted Spinach – 4sp

After I made my delicious Foil Baked Cod with Romesco Sauce and Greens recipe, I had a couple of portions of Romesco sauce left over. Whilst I could have used it the next night with chicken or steak, I thought instead I would try and incorporate it into a nice and simple breakfast recipe. This is just that. Low in carbs and points but packed with flavour, this breakfast can be a weekend treat or, since it is so quick to pull together, a weekday option too.

Sweet Potato and Sweetcorn Fritters with Poached Egg – 4sp

My hubbie thinks I’m a bit of a weird one as breakfast is often my favourite meal of the day, especially at weekends when I have a chance to spend a little longer thinking about what I might have! This little recipe came about after we had baked sweet potatoes and corn on the cobs for our tea the night before. I made extra so I had leftovers and this quick and tasty little breakfast recipe was the result. Best of all, now sweetcorn and eggs are both free, this recipe is only 4sp per serving!

Sweet Potato, Butternut Squash and Chorizo Hash, Smashed Avocado and Poached Egg Stack – 8sp

Brunch, probably my favourite meal of them all (mostly because it’s acceptable to have a glass of prosecco with it). The beauty of a combined meal means you can also afford to spend a few further points on it than you would in breakfast or lunch separately and this recipe is certainly worth doing just that for!

Having seen someone tucking into a hash stack at a local café (and practically drooling over their plate) it I knew I would have to make my own healthy version of this lovely colourful dish. The result was delightful. If you want to alter the amounts of sweet potato vs BNS feel free to do so but remember to amend the points to suit (pop it back through the recipe creator). Otherwise give it a whirl, you won’t be disappointed!

Note: I buy the pre diced mixed packs of sweet potato and BNS from Sainsbury’s for this recipe to save chopping up a whole one of each. If you can’t find this and have to use one of each, roast the rest and whack it in a soup!
