• 1 cup yellow cornmeal
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup fat-free buttermilk
  • 1/4 cup unsweetened applesauce
  • 2 egg whites


  1. Preheat your oven to 425°F (220°C) and spray an 8×8-inch baking dish with non-stick cooking spray.
  2. In a mixing bowl, combine the cornmeal, flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt.
  3. In another bowl, whisk together the buttermilk, applesauce, and egg whites.
  4. Add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients and stir until just combined. Be careful not to overmix, as this can make the cornbread tough.
  5. Pour the batter into the prepared baking dish.
  6. Bake for approximately 20-25 minutes, or until the cornbread is golden brown on top and a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.
  7. Let the cornbread cool for a few minutes before cutting it into squares.

This cornbread is a lighter option for those on the Weight Watchers program because it uses fat-free buttermilk and unsweetened applesauce instead of higher-calorie ingredients. The specific SmartPoints value will depend on the serving size and the exact ingredients used, so you may want to calculate it based on your own Weight Watchers plan. Enjoy your healthier cornbread!
