The recipe for these Syn Free Oat Pancakes also uses 50ml of milk (per portion) from your HEA allowance. Of course you could always syn it if you prefer.

Fresh fruit like raspberries or strawberries are great to add some of that all important speed! Add a drizzle of sugar free syrup and some sweetened quark and you’re sorted!

Whenever we need to replace oil in cooking we use Frylight. Perfect for everyday frying and cooking, it delivers exactly one calorie per spray, which makes it Syn free!

The Coconut or Olive Oil flavours are ideal for this Syn Free Oat Pancakes recipe.

Synning the sweetener

This recipe has been amended to take into account the new recommendations about synning sweetener. This will keep it 1 syn. If you want to add more sweetener then you should syn it at 0.5 syns per tablespoon.

As you will probably know Slimming World have brought out some new recommendations regarding the syn value of granulated sweeteners. Slimming World have confirmed what this change means.

Where there is 1 tbsp or more being used per serving they recommend 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 Syn Free Oat Pancakes now uses 1 tbsp of sweetener per portion (it makes 2), so there’s no need to add any syns on for the sweetener itself.

  1. I am lactose and egg intolerant. I made these using egg replacement for the first time and they were gorgeous. I had mine with salted caramel flavouring with quark, a clementine and some cinammon

    1. How do you find the quark being lactose intolerant? My main promblem with a lot of the SW recipies is the high use of dairy products.

  2. Made these again for breakfast! I got 5 pancakes for 1 portion and added ‘Artic Power Berries’ to the mixture to make them taste lovely and berry-licious. The berry powder is just freeze dried berries and taste amazing 🙂

  3. Made these again this morning! I have a super sweet tooth and these pancakes definitely hit the spot! Absolutely amazing recipe which I had with strawberries to add some speediness to my Sunday breakfast.

    Delicious and you get a lot of small-medium sized pancakes for only 40g of oats 🙂 delicious!!

  4. Enjoyed these today. Kids didnt notice a difference either! I used skyr yogurt and i think next time i will use milk and 1 tbsp of real sugar for 3 syns instead of 2 of sukrin as i just cant seem to get past that aftertaste low fat ingredients give, although it was definitely not strong at all. I blended the mixture first and would probably recommend to do this. This recipe made 7 pancakes for me. I had 3.5 with a banana and can hardly move after them! Thanks for the recipe – thats us sorted for pancake tuesday!

    1. Hi Lynda
      We prefer using milk, as it does give a better consistency than yogurt. We find the Skyr ones are quite thick so it can make mixing it a bit more of an effort.

  5. Pancake day today and I wasn’t about to miss out 😂 So I gave these a try. I’ve tried different SW friendly pancake recipes in the past and they haven’t been a great success. However these were amazing! Only 1 syn, I got 4 pancakes out of the mixture, I stacked them with yoghurt, raspberrries and blueberries between and then topped with 1 tablespoon of Nutella (4syns) delicious and so filling, I actually struggled to finish them, but I managed lol. Will defiantly be making them again xx

  6. Going to try these as need some thing sweet on my nite shift these will be good i hope thanx for all the recipies

  7. These are amazing, thank you so much!

    Members of my sw group wondered if this was a ‘tweek’ because of the blitzed pats, im not sure what this means, can you help?

    1. Hi Ali,
      We contacted Slimming World Head Office to check this. The 40 grams is a measured amount, used as your Healthy Extra B choice. Whether you blitz the oats, or leave them whole, the amount doesn’t change. Therefore, when used in this way, it is fine to count as your HEb choice and it’s definitely NOT a tweak!

  8. I made these his morning! I didn’t add the sweetener but just bananas and it was yummy! Thanks PON! I was surprised how far 40g of oats went. Thanks, love this website!

    1. Hi Leanne,
      Yes, standard porridge oats are the oats that we refer to in these recipes. It doesn’t matter if you choose porridge oats from the basics range of any supermarket, or a named brand. 🙂

    1. Hi Kate
      The recipe uses 80g of oats, which is the equivalent of two Healthy Extra B allowance portions. If you look under ‘number of servings’ it says 2 portions. If you click here, change the numbers of servings to 1 portion and the recipe will recalculate the amounts for you! 🙂

      1. Oh only just seen the recalculation for 1 serving! Fabulous thank you Janie.

        I have made these using plain Yoghurt. I don’t use any form of sweetener. (I don’t use any for baked oats either) The addition of fresh fruit, the bacon and more Yoghurt was gorgeous.
        Yum yum.
        It seemed so naughty but wasn’t. Happy days 🙂

  9. If doing speed day you can’t use yoghurt so what do you use instead and how much I was thinking quark or fromage frais is that allowed?

  10. Hey

    I haven’t got round to getting my scales yet, just ordered some now, is there any chance you know roughly how many oats it is in tea spoons as really keen to try these!

    1. Hi Gemma
      Have a read through the blurb that accompanies the recipe. It explains that as long as you use your oats as an HEB choice, they’re Syn free. 🙂

  11. Hey can you use any oats eg oats so simple ? X I have just made them on my sons pancake maker , they are amazing ! Just want to check the oats are ok to use ? X

    1. Hi Julia
      Your HEB is 40g of normal, plain oats, or you can now use 40g Ready Brek, which has been added to the Healthy Extras list. The Oats So Simple standard sachets are not an HEB, but the Oats So Simple Big Bowl are included on the list.

  12. Made these pancakes this morning , they are delicious my 2 daughters had them too they couldnt believe they were syn free 😍

    1. Hi Rebecca
      Look for an extract, rather than an essence. Madagascan vanilla extract is the best one to look for. Most supermarkets sell a decent quality one.

  13. Straight in my favourites basket.
    Bloomin lovely. Had for pancake day breakfast with berries and a little honey.
    Will be trying with different toppings again and again.
    Thank you pinch of nom

  14. Hello, I was wondering if these are okay to reheat in the microwave? I work silly shifts and could do with making these the night before! Thank you

    1. Hi Chelsey
      I don’t see why not, people have made our waffles and baked oats and reheated in microwave, so there’s no reason why these would work too. 🙂
