Weight Watchers is a fabulous organisation with a no fuss, straightforward approach to weight loss. They provide a wealth of great recipes online that can be created easily and quickly. Many of their recipes are “0 points”, meaning that they tick the box as having ingredients which don’t count towards the points total in the WW food plan.
This recipe is so named as the basic pancake has only two ingredients, banana and eggs. To serve, I added fresh fruit and no-fat yoghurt, which are also 0 points. For a little bit of pizazz, I did serve my pancakes with a drizzle – or maybe a slurp – of maple syrup!
1 medium banana
2 free-range egg whites
1 medium free-range egg
To serve, pineapple, raspberries, no-fat yoghurt and maple syrup.
Combine the banana, egg whites and whole egg in a food processor and process until smooth.
Heat a nonstick frying pan over a medium heat. You don’t need cooking oil spray, but spraying a little in the pan won’t hurt if you’re worried about the pancakes sticking. Drop a tablespoonful of the batter into the frying pan. Cook for 20 seconds on one side or until golden brown, then flip the pancake and cook for a further 20 seconds. You need to be careful cooking the pancakes as they brown very quickly. Repeat with the rest of the batter – you will probably get at least 4 medium pancakes.
Serve the pancakes topped with the no-fat yogurt, a pile of pineapple chunks*, fresh raspberries and a little maple syrup if you dare!
* A great idea to make the pineapple super sweet, is to dry fry the chunks in a frying pan over medium to high heat, for a minute or two – cooking carmelises the sugar – they taste fantastic!
