Cornbread Recipe – 3 Point Total

Cornbread Recipe

Tasty cornbread recipes are pretty easy to come by. But tasty low calorie ones aren’t always so easy. The ones I did try were bland or dry and just didn’t make the cut. So, after some experimentation, I managed to come up with an easy cornbread recipe that tastes great and has just a 3 Point Total per serving. And though it’s not an official Weight Watchers Corn Bread Recipe, anyone who is following the Weight Watchers Program will appreciate this low calorie version!

Cornbread Recipe

– 1 cup uncooked cornmeal, yellow
– 1 14oz can of creamed corn
– 2 tsp baking powder
– 1 cup all-purpose flour
– 1/2 tsp baking soda
– 2 packets of Splenda sweetener
– 1 tsp table salt
– 1/2 cup reduced fat buttermilk
– 2 large egg whites
– 2 tsp corn oil

Preheat oven to 400ºF. Coat an 8-inch square cake pan with non-fat cooking spray (I prefer the butter flavored kind).
Combine cornmeal, flour, baking powder, Splenda, salt and baking soda in a large bowl. Mix well with a fork and set aside. Combine creamed corn, buttermilk, egg whites and oil in a medium bowl; mix until blended. Fold mixture into dry ingredients and blend. Pour batter into prepared pan. Bake until a wooden pick inserted near the center comes out clean, about 20 minutes. Allow to cool in pan on a wire rack for 10 minutes. Remove from pan and let cool completely. Cut into 8 squares.

Entire recipe makes 8 servings
Serving size is 1 square
Each serving = 3 Point Total



  1. I made this a few days ago and it turned out great, thanks for sharing.

  2. I know this is an older recipe but it would be great to have a note that this is old points. I made it only to find out its 5 points. I could have just made the stuff from the box much easier.

  3. I put the ingredients in the etools recipe builder and got 5 PPV for a serving if cut into 8.  If cut into 12 pieces then its 3 PPV.  

  4. What would like old points calculation be?

  5. Ooops. I calculated wrong (I used a different online calculator than I am used to and the categories were switched).

    It is actually 3.5 points/serving (28 pts for the whole recipe).

  6. FYI, I calculated the points plus amount. There are 25 points plus in the entire recipe, so it’s 3.125 points plus (roughly 3).

    From my calculations:
    11 g fat; 211.3 g carbs; 14.9 fiber; 35.1 protein


  7. Will you be changing the points totals on your previously posted recipes? I hope you will eventually. I know it's a big chore!

    • I may be, but it will take a LOT of time. For most of those recipes, I don't have the nutritional stats, only the Points value. Grrr. But i will be posting lots of new recipes with the Points Plus Values!
