Want to eat bread? Worried that you can't when following the Weight Watchers program? Well, with this list of over twenty Low Point Breads, you no longer have to worry about going over your Smart Points limit by eating bread. All these Low Point Breads are 1 or 2 Smart Points per slice on Weight Watchers Freestyle plan.
If you want to eat sandwiches, need to eat toast for breakfast, can't do without a slice (or two) of bread with your lunchtime bowl of soup then, like many other Weight Watchers, you will be keen to find a bread that fits into the Weight Watchers program.
Updated in November 2019 to include a couple of Weight Watchers gluten free bread options and to include information about the SmartPoints for the new myWW Green plan, myWW Blue plan and myWW Purple plan.
Take a look at this selection to find the best Weight Watcher friendly breads.
You can also take a look at this list of the Best Low Calorie Breads (which includes SmartPoint values for the Blue, Purple and Green plans).
The Smart Point values for the breads in this list are given per 1 slice of bread unless otherwise stated.
Remember that sometimes 2 slices of bread may actually be 3 Smart Points as it doesn't always follow that 1 slice equals 1 Smart Point, 2 slices equals 2 Smart Points etc!

What about Gluten free bread?
Trader Joe's gluten free. Read is 2 points per slice
Janet Gibson says
Can you do a list for the UK please?
Also, the Trader Joe's Daily Bread - Sprouted Whole Grain is 2 points. <3
It's not super light, but Trader Joe's Gluten Free bread is 2 pts per slice. Hope this helps!
Thank you for that Jene!
Alvarado bakery breads. 2pts and hearty slices.
Very helpful list. Thank you. It should be noted, though, that many of the 1 point per slice breads become 3 points if you have 2 slices. The only bread I've found so far that is truly 1 point per slice (so 2 slices is 2 points) is Nature's Own Sugar Free 100% Whole Wheat Whole Grain Bread. It's good, too. 😉
Thank you for your comments and the information on Nature's Own Sugar Free Bread.
In the main text of the post I do mention that sometimes 2 slices of bread can be 3 SmartPoints and that unfortunately it doesn't always equate that 2 slices equal 2 SmartPoints etc ????
I will add your suggestion of Nature's Own sugar Free 100% Whole Wheat Whole Grain Bread to the list!
This brand is also sold in some locations under the brand ARNOLD. Good bread for the points ????
Cheri Kaufman says
What about SarahLee reduced calorie Honey Whole Wheat bread. It says 1 pt. per slice. Is it a 2 pt.s for 2 slices?
2 slices = 2 points on the WW app.
michlle sulllivan says
The healthy life 35 calories are 2 points for 2 slices. Most of them, I just wished the bread was softer and tasted better. These others listed I can't find in my area.
Sara Lee's Delightful breads are only 1 point per slice, and 2sp for two slices. It's good, but it doesn't stay real fresh for long....or don't buy it at Walmart. And for the price, (over $4 per loaf) we are going to start looking for something else. Trader Joe's had some one time that I tried that was one point per slice.
Brenda Haynesworth says
Sam’s Club in my area has two loaves of Sara Lee in a package that’s actually cheaper than one loaf at the grocery store. I freeze one loaf and it is fine when I need it.
Thinking about returning to Weight Watchers (Ww) but I am now Celiac since my old meeting days! I used to eat light bread that was 50% less calories!
So an entire sandwich was 1 bread!
I am really struggling to lose weight since I became Celiac and have been gluten free since having my family! The thought of never having bread on Ww is hard to accept because I lost weight years ago eating sandwiches!
Does anyone know of any Ww friendly breads that are Gluten Free? They all seem to be double the carbs of any wheat bread AND half or less of the protein!!!
Pattie White says
I am searching for the same info! I recently was diagnosed with Celiac Disease. I also have short bowel syndrome so do not tolerate fiber well. But I am still am giving WW a try.
Someone earlier said that Trader Joe's Gluten Free bread is 2 pts per slice.
Thank you for that information Colleen. I will look into that particular one and add it to the list. Kind regards Marianne
What about Publix GreenWise sprouted wheat bread
Sherrilyn Seward says
Do you have any links to these breads?
Thank you for the update Marianne! It's me Tess... I posted way back asking about the gluten free breads. I have since been using the Canyon Bakehouse. The slices are tiny tiny, and 2 points each for tiny (4 points a sandwich before anything is added) is a lot different than 1 pt a slice for wheat, but I have been grateful to have it. It is delicious but mostly toasted (it has a stale texture untested). But it is delicious toasted whole grain and almost nutty in texture. I am now looking at the Simply Balanced bread on the page and wondering if that slice is any bigger. IT would be nice to have a traditional sized slice of bread. Udi's was more traditionally sized but if I remember it was 3 points each!
Stay safe, and be well!
If you have a ww calculator take it with you to the store. I carry mine with me to check out products.
Walmart bakery presliced French loaf bread has only one pt per slice and seems like such a treat!
Jinny O'Connor says
Joseph's Pita Bread is 1 point per pita.
I make our bread and add whole wheat flour to the white bread flour to make healthier. We slice the loaf and put in the freezer so a slice at a time is available without worrying about having to eat it up prior to getting stale. Used on occasion it is so good and the points are just worked in.
Sue Brooke says
I really appreciate your lists and recipes. Really makes shopping and meal planning easier. Thank you!
I am so pleased that you find them useful Sue.
Make sure you pop back every so often to see what new lists & recipes I have posted!
Best of luck with your WW journey.
Wendy West says
Unfortunately in Canada we don't get all the varieties that you get in the USA. We're lucky to find Weight Watchers and I had to go to 3 grocery stores before I found ant,
Debra Jacobs says
Hi do you have a low points homemade bread recipe as I live in New Zealand we dont have any of these bread here and I do prefer to male my own then I know what going into it or maybe point me to some site that has a recipe, thank you
Love these Lists- Thanks!
Walmart Great Value 100% Whole Wheat Bread is just 1 point (3 pts for 2 slices) on blue and purple (don't know about green). I like that its always available when I can't find some of these others. It's good toasted. Also if you have Aldi, their regular English muffins are 3 pts. I usually eat the Thomas wheat (also 3 pts) but having white bread is like a treat for me!!
Maybe I missed it in the list but Lewis Bake Shop Healthy Life keto bread is only 1 point for 2 slices. Or zero points for 1 slice (30 calories). I like toast with breakfast.
How does one go about to get these products in stores close to home? I am sure they will order it for us if we ask maybe?
Don't forget Aldi's 45 calorie bread!! https://www.aldi.us/en/products/bakery-bread/bread/detail/ps/p/fit-and-active-35-calorie-100-percent-whole-wheat/
1 point per slice
