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

This post contains affiliate links. Find out what this means.

As with all pancakes, you’ll need a good, non-stick frying pan. You can pick one up over on Amazon!

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!

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.

Banana and Chocolate Pancakes | Slimming World & Weight Watchers Friendly

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.

  1. I have to say that these look good but you should really say that they use 1 heb and 2 syns on Facebook abd the top of recipe. Find it slightly false advertising?

    Excited to try the choc pot 🙂

  2. I’ve made these and they were lovely.
    I’ve got a day off tomorrow so I’m making them again.
    I love your website!
    I’m going to try some more of your recipes.

  3. This is one of my favourites recipes, and often have pancakes several times a week! Would they be suitable for freezing once cooled? Thanks x

  4. Hi, I am new to this, could you please tell me what oats you use, as I see them used in quite a few recipes? Love this site very inspirational and lots of great recipes!!

    1. Hi Laura
      A measured and blitzed 40g portion of oats as your HEb choice is not a tweak. Slimming World Head Office confirmed this to us when the recipe was created. The only Syns in this recipe come from the chocolate spread/choc shot and the milk if you’re not using it from your HEA allowance. Please check the recipe card for details.

    1. Hi Lisa
      There are egg substitute products available. I used to teach a child who had a severe egg allergy, but his mum used to bake using something called ‘Orgran No Egg’ so he didn’t miss out on class treats. I’ve just had a quick search, it says it’s available from Holland and Barratt and Amazon. Hope that helps! 🙂

    1. Hi Nikki
      The bananas aren’t cooked in this recipe, they’re just served alongside the cooked pancakes, so no need to Syn. 👍🏻
