How to make Slimming World pancakes

Slimming World pancakes with berry sauce

makes 12
1½ Syns per pancake
ready in 25 minutes (plus 20 minutes standing)

What you need:

2 large eggs
230ml plain unsweetened almond drink
1 level tsp sweetener granules, plus 1 level tsp to serve
1 tsp vanilla extract
50g porridge oats
1 level tsp baking powder
50g self-raising flour
low-calorie cooking spray

What you do:

1. Preheat your oven to 150°C/fan 130°C/gas 2.

2. Separate the eggs into 2 mixing bowls and, using a fork, whisk the almond drink, sweetener and vanilla extract into the yolks. Stir in the oats and baking powder and leave to stand for 20 minutes.

3. Sift the flour over the oat mixture and fold it in. Whisk the egg whites into soft peaks and gently fold into the oats using a large metal spoon.

4. Spray a large non-stick frying pan with low-calorie cooking spray and put it over a medium heat. When it’s hot, add a few large spoonfuls of the batter, spaced well apart (you’re aiming to make 12 pancakes altogether). Cook for 2 minutes or until bubbles start to appear in the top of the pancakes and the undersides are nicely golden. Flip the pancakes over and cook for another 2 minutes. Put them on a plate, cover with a clean tea towel and keep warm in the oven while you cook the rest.
