What do I need to make these Banana and Chocolate Pancakes?

You’ll also need some Sweet Freedom Choc Shot. This is available in most supermarkets, and also comes in a variety of flavours so you can mix up your pancake taste! Find it down the hot chocolate aisle, or the “free from” aisle. You can also buy it online!
We use a food processor to blitz the oats up, but you could also use a mini electric food chopper. Both are really useful kitchen gadgets and we use them a lot in recipes like this Syn Free Garlic, Lemon and Parsley Chicken Goujons!

How many Syns are in these Banana and Chocolate Pancakes?
These Banana and Chocolate Pancakes are 2 Syns per portion, if you use your Healthy Extra B for the Ready Brek, and some of one of your Healthy Extra A allowance (the recipe uses 50ml of skimmed milk, there is 350ml in one HEA of skimmed milk).
If you wanted to Syn these pancakes, they would work out at 10 Syns per portion.
You can serve these Banana and Chocolate Pancakes with any fruit you like. Why not try something off our Slimming World Speed Food List?
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!
Do I need to Syn the sweetener in these Banana and Chocolate 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 Banana and Chocolate 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.
How Weight Watchers friendly is this Banana and Chocolate Pancakes recipe?
If you’re looking for a low point treat then these Banana and Chocolate Pancakes are just the ticket.
At only 5 Weight Watchers Smart Points, you’ll be amazed at how chocolatey and delish these are!
Can I freeze these Banana and Chocolate Pancakes?
This recipe can be frozen, but please remember to do the following;
– Freeze it as soon as it is cold enough
– Use a container or bag that is suitable for freezing.
– Defrost thoroughly before reheating.
Make sure it’s piping hot before serving!
How do I make these Banana and Chocolate Pancakes?
Mix the Ready Brek, eggs, milk, vanilla and sweetener together well
Spray a frying pan with some Sunflower Frylight and allow to heat
Pour in small amounts of the mix to make 2 pancakes. Allow to cook through until brown underneath, then turn and cook for a few more minutes.
Repeat until all the mix is used (you should get 4 pancakes from the mix)
Place one pancake on a plate, spread it with some of the chocolate spread, then a layer of sliced banana.
Repeat until you have stacked all the pancakes and banana, making sure the top has a thin layer of chocolate spread and a few banana slices. Top with a strawberry then drizzle with the chocolate shot
