These Fig & Pecan Overnight Oats are a healthy, tasty & satisfying choice for Breakfast. A filling WW breakfast for 8 SmartPoints on the Blue plan, 4 SmartPoints on the Purple plan and 10 SmartPoints on the Green plan
Anyone following the Weight Watchers program will know the importance of eating a filling breakfast to set you up for the rest of the day!
Overnight oats have been a mainstay of the Weight Watcher for many years.
They are filling, tasty and easy to make and they really do set you up for the rest of the day.
You can make them in loads of different flavour combinations, including these Blueberry & Chia Seed Overnight Oats.
They make a great on the go WW breakfast.
Just make them the night before and in the morning, remove from the fridge & top with the remaining chopped figs & pecans and drizzle with honey!
SmartPoints in Fig & Pecan Overnight Oats?
As I am sure you know, Weight Watchers changed their program at the end of 2019. It now includes 3 individual plans, giving anyone following the WW program lots of choice about how they use their SmartPoint allocation.
Using the official WW recipe builder I have worked out the SmartPoints for these Fig & Pecan Overnight Oats for each of the plans.
- Freestyle plan – 8 SmartPoints
- myWW Blue plan – 8 SmartPoints
- myWW Purple plan – 4 SmartPoints
- or myWW Green plan – 10 SmartPoints
Please note that if you are following the myWW Green Plan you need to use fat free Greek yogurt rather than fat free natural yogurt for this recipe to work out at 10 SmartPoints.
Can I reduce the SmartPoints?
These overnight oats are quite high in SmartPoints if you are following the myWW Blue plan, the myWW Green plan or the Freestyle plan but they are incredibly filling (meaning less snacking between breakfast & lunch!).
If you do want to reduce the SmartPoints there are one or two things that you could do.
- If you replace the honey with a maple syrup flavoured sugar free syrup you could reduce the SmartPoints by 1 .
- Leave out the pecan nuts and save yourself 3 SmartPoints!
Are Overnight Oats Healthy?
Yes overnight oats are a healthy option for breakfast.
Oats are nutritious! They are full of dietary fibre and protein and they contain numerous minerals and vitamins. They are also believed to be a good aid to weight loss.

I use little jars similar to these ones available from Amazon to make my overnight oats. They come with glass lids, seals and clips and are just the right size for this recipe.
- 1/2 cup (40g) oats - rolled or quick
- 3/4 cups (200g) fat free Greek yogurt / fat free natural yogurt
- 1 fig - finely chopped
- 1 tsp honey
- 2 pecan nuts (15g) - finely chopped
- Finely chop the figs
- Finely chop the pecan nuts
- In a small bowl, mix the oats and yogurt together with half of the chopped figs and half of the chopped pecan nuts.
- Spoon into a jar or bowl and cover.
- Place in the fridge overnight (or for a couple of hours if not eating for breakfast).
- Prior to eating top with the remaining chopped figs & pecan nuts.
- Drizzle with honey
* If you are following the myWW Green plan use fat free Greek yogurt to keep the SmartPoints at 10 SP per serving. Using fat free natural yogurt will increase the SmartPoints.
