This sweet brekkie is packed with the same thickness and sponginess (I think that’s a word) of an American style pancake while being entirely guilt free! That’s right, you heard me. These little beauties are actually good for you.
I LOVE pancakes!
It’s become a well-known fact amongst the people I know that I love pancakes and breakfast. Breakfast has got to be my favourite meal of the day! Your palette is fresh, stomach empty, and good food sets you up for the day. This little recipe has saved me from breaking the diet multiple times; and has satisfied my burning sweet tooth. I’ve been able to pile my plate with fresh fruits, light cream, Nutella (yes, actual Nutella), sticky honey and anything else you can imagine putting on a pancake (in moderation). Trust me, I’ve probably done it. They are super quick and easy to make, and the ingredients are usually lying around in your cupboards!
Since starting my diet, it has amazed me the amount of delicious food you can create from oats, these American style pancakes being one of them! I will be sure to share them in the future because you will be just as amazed as I was.
Answering the questions.
As these bad-boys are so bloody lovely to eat and look at, I’ve obviously posted them on Instagram and Snapchat. From this, I have been asked by friends and family how to make them. I’ve even had my brother’s curious nose peeking over as I’ve been frying them up. He is still insistent that I must be ‘breaking some kind of diet rule’. It is great to say that I’m not! So, I thought I would answer some questions and share what I’ve learnt from this diet and other slimmers alike. Let me know how yours turns out! Check out my other recipes here.

A healthy, sweet brekkie to help you start the day!
40g of oats
4 tbsp of fat free natural/Greek yoghurt
½ a tsp of vanilla extract
½ a tsp of baking powder
1 tbsp of granulated sweetener. I use Canderel.
1 tbsp of Nutella (4 Syns for Slimming World)
12.5g of light squirty cream. I use Anchor. (1 Syn for Slimming World)
Honey (1 Syn for Slimming World)
Blitz your oats in a blender or food processor until it resembles powder. I use a this Nutribullet.
Separate out your egg yolks and whisk the whites until they form stiff peaks for super fluffiness! Or you can add the eggs as they are. Some days I separate, some days I don’t. Both options are fine and will make that desired American stack .
Mix in the remaining ingredients. Make sure all the oats are scraped from the edges of the bowl.
Heat your pan to a medium heat and spray with a low calorie cooking spray. I personally use the dieters’ favourite, Frylight.
Dollop on about a tablespoon of the mixture until it forms a a small, round-sized patty shape. Alternatively, you can use a single egg pan to create that perfect circle!
Leave for a minute or two and when the edges start to look like they are setting, flip that pancake over. Some small bubbles may appear on top which is also a sign that they’re about ready.
The other side may splat where it’s still raw. Use your spatula to scoop it back in and refine the patty and leave for another minute or two. (Handy trick: using a single egg-sized pan means this is less likely to happen). Leave for another minute or two.
Flip over again (the pancake, not you) and check both sides are golden in colour. Press down to check the inside is done too. If anything oozes out, leave it for a tad longer. By all means, have a gooey pancake if you want. I won’t judge… But I would not recommend.
Slide that fluffy angel from the pan and onto a plate. Spray the pan with some more Frylight and repeat steps 5-8 until all the batter is used up.
Layer one side of each pancake with the Nutella. Make sure to spread evenly so you don’t run out! I know its tempting to use a whole jar…
Once stacked, add some strawberries to the top pancake and dot the rest around your plate.
Measure out your cream and plop it on top. WARNING: may come with the extreme urge to squirt some directly into your mouth.
Drizzle about a teaspoon’s worth of honey over the whole lot.
Finally, take your pictures for Instagram, Snapchat, Facebook and everywhere that you can to show your friends the pancake connoisseur you are.
Be as creative or as minimalistic as you want with your toppings! This is just my personal favourite. Make sure to syn/count accordingly though. But most importantly, ENJOY!
