I would like to start with a PSA: Cinnamon Buns are amazing. While I don’t eat the sticky buns often, when I do, I am always reminded of just how ruddy lovely they are. However, Cinnamon Buns + Slimming World don’t exactly go… So the pancake making is back! I attempted to re-create these very autumnal treats and voila! The Cinnamon Bun Pancake Stack was born.
Swirling the cinnamon bun pancakes.
I seem to say this in every post I make about Slimming World pancakes, and that is: this is one of my all-time favourite breakfasts. The edge with this stack is that it has a cinnamon swirl running through each fluffy pancake. How autumnal is that?! Doing this was a challenge at first, but I soon got the knack which came in the form of a piping bag or small spoon. Swirling a cinnamon mixture into the pancakes was what this stack needed to transform the flavours into that of a Cinnamon Bun.
Hooray for October!
October has finally rolled in, (I totally haven’t been waiting for spooky season, like, all year) so this, in turn, ignited my deep desire to fill my autumn flavour craving once again. This time, a cinnamon bun pancake stack did it. These fluffy cinnamon swirl pancakes were drizzled with sweet icing and complemented with some light squirty cream, and oh boy it was the best. I was having a good ol’ time and I think you should too, so make these A.S.A.P!
Well, there you have it! A guilt free Cinnamon Bun but in the form of a pancake stack, which could possibly be even better. (Don’t @ me…). They are only 481 calories (all toppings included) and 6.5 syns in total for Slimming Worlders. Not too shabby, right?
Fellow Cinnamon Bun lovers, I call to you to make this stack! If you enjoy fluffy pancakes, spicy cinnamon and treacly icing then you will most definitely not be disappointed. This recipe was inspired by @yasminlauren_slimming on Instagram. You should check her out as her pancake game is on point!Print
An adaptation of cinnamon buns in the form of a pancake stack!
40g of oats
6 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.
3 tsp of confectioners sugar
1/2 a tsp of semi skimmed milk
2 tsp of light brown sugar
1.5 tsp of cinnamon with a tad extra to dust
Sainsburys gold stars
12.5 g of Anchor light cream
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 4/6 tbsp of yoghurt, vanilla extract, baking powder and sweetener with the blended oats. 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.
Mix together the remaining yoghurt, cinnamon and light brown sugar in a seperate small bowl and set to the side.
Add some additonal frylight and then dollop on about a tablespoon or so of the mixture into the centre of the pan and until it forms a a small, round-sized patty shape. Alternatively, you can use a single egg pan to create that perfect circle!
Take a piping bag or small spoon and swirl the cinnamon, yoghurt and sugar mixture on the raw side of the pancake. 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 and the swirl is set. The swirl may look like an engraving in the pancake but don’t worry, it still taste equally as good! 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 6-9 until all the batter is used up.
Once stacked, mix the confectioners sugar and milk together until smooth and set aside. Then, gently dust some cinnamon over the pancakes and squirt the light scream around the edges. Finally, drizzle the sugar and milk mix over the top of your fluffy cinnamon bun pancakes. Enjoy!
Optional: Sprinkle some gold stars over the top to make the stack oh so cute.
Finally, take your pictures for Instagram, Snapchat, Facebook and everywhere that you can to show your friends this sexy cinnamon bun stack.
