WW’s Most Popular Recipes of 2021

WW members turned to these recipes again and again this year, and it’s clear why they’re winners: They’re delicious, yes, but also beyond easy to make.

After spending far too much time in the kitchen at the start of the pandemic (who remembers all of that banana bread?), it’s no surprise that 2021 was the year of quick-to-make meals. The super simple TikTok pasta was the top-trending recipe on Google, and in the WW world, members also leaned into fuss-free but filling meals.

“Many of this year’s top tracked recipes are classic basics that take little meal prep,” says Leslie Fink, WW's recipe editor and in-house nutritionist. A creamy chicken salad that comes together in just 10 minutes from start to finish was the ultimate member fave, and the runner-up (doughy everything bagels) requires only two ingredients—could it get any easier? And turns out we’re still making that banana bread! Check out the full list of WW’s top-tracked recipes of 2021 below.
