Slimming World air fryer pancakes recipe 

Slimming World's airfryer pancakes

makes 6  
2 Syns each 
ready in 15 minutes plus 30 minutes resting 

What you need:  

60g plain flour  
75ml skimmed milk  
3 large eggs 
½ tsp of almond or vanilla extract (optional) 

What you do:  

1. Put the flour, milk and 25ml water in a bowl or jug along with the eggs and flavoured extract (if using). Whisk until smooth and lump-free, then season with a little salt and put in the fridge to rest for half an hour. 

2. Heat your air fryer to 200°C. Ladle a sixth of the mixture into 1 of the holes of a silicone pancake mould and repeat to fill the holes (we could cook 3 pancakes at a time in ours). Cook in the air fryer for 3 minutes. Loosen the edges with a spatula and flip the pancakes over, then cook for another 2 minutes. 

3, Once cooked, slide the pancakes onto a plate and keep warm while you cook the rest. Serve with your fave toppings – we went with the flavours of a cherry bakewell, using a handful of defrosted frozen cherries, some fat-free natural yogurt and 1 level tbsp flaked almonds (the almonds add 4½ Syns per serving).
