We love pancakes! These Low Syn Bacon, Maple and Blueberry Pancakes are perfect for Pancake Day! You can also, make them with your daily Healthy Extra B, perfect when following the Slimming World Extra Easy plan.
Despite travelling to the US and Canada many times, we’d never tried bacon and maple syrup together. To be honest it wasn’t a combination that has ever taken our fancy.
For the full list of ingredients and comprehensive instructions, please see the recipe card at the end of this post. Before you scroll, there’s important stuff in the blurb 👍
In anticipation of Pancake Day we asked our Facebook group for their favourite flavours, and Bacon, Maple and Blueberry was one of the most popular ones.
So, we thought we’d give it a go…..and we’re glad we did! These Low Syn Bacon, Maple and Blueberry Pancakes have become a firm favourite of ours.

How do we make these Low Syn Bacon, Maple and Blueberry Pancakes low syn?
Usually, you’d make pancakes with some oil, but oil + Slimming World = Syns. This is where Sunflower Frylight comes in!
Whenever we need to replace oil in cooking we use Frylight, and Sunflower Frylight is just perfect for Pancake day.
Frylight is also perfect for everyday frying and cooking, it delivers exactly one calorie per spray, which makes it Syn free!
What’s more, Sunflower Frylight contains NO artificial ingredients.
Sunflower Frylight is ideal for this Low Syn Bacon, Maple and Blueberry Pancakes recipe.
Next, the ingredients!
These Low Syn Bacon, Maple and Blueberry Pancakes are only so low in Syns if you use a proportion of one of your Healthy Extra A & Healthy Extra B. If you don’t then you will have to Syn them accordingly.
Surprising as it may seem, maple syrup is only half a syn per teaspoon, and the blueberries are a speed food, so that’s an added bonus!
Do I need to Syn the sweetener in these Low Syn Bacon, Maple and Blueberry Pancakes?
As you will probably know Slimming World recently brought out some new recommendations regarding the syn value of granulated sweeteners.
Where there is 1 tbsp or more being used per serving Slimming World recommends that members count 0.5 Syn per tbsp.
If using smaller amounts, like a pinch or teaspoon, there’s no need to worry about Syns at all.
The recipe for these Low Syn Bacon, Maple and Blueberry Pancakes uses 1/2 a tablespoon of sweetener. That’s half a tablespoon per portion, so there’s no need to add any Syns on for the sweetener itself.
If you don’t want to use your Healthy Extra A or Healthy Extra B then they will be 10 Syns for the lot.

Why have you changed from blitzed oats to Ready Brek?
Slimming World are forever reviewing ingredients and recipes. Although the Healthy Extra B is a measured amount, they have stated that the purpose of oats as a Healthy Extra B is that they expand and are filling on consumption.
As Ready Brek is being used in its original form and is again a measured amount for your Healthy Extra B, there’s no chance of it being used incorrectly in this recipe.
We also happen to think the texture of the pancakes is much better when using Ready Brek!
