Pancakes are a great way to start your day.... especially these ones as they are so filling (meaning less likelihood of mid morning snacking!).
They are made with mashed banana and oats and don't contain any refined sugar. All the sweetness comes from the banana.
The oats are a good source of protein and are high in fibre, making these pancakes a good healthy alternative to more traditional breakfast pancake recipes.
To keep the Points low choose a Low Point Pancake Syrup and sliced banana and berries as a topping with a spoonful of your favourite fat free yogurt!
How to make the pancakes
These pancakes are easy to make.
Mash the banana to a smooth consistency and add the whisked egg, yogurt and salt. Mix to combine before adding the oatmeal and giving it a good stir.
You can then cook the pancakes over a medium heat for a few minutes on each side.
They really are that simple!

Banana Pancakes | Weight Watchers
- 2 medium bananas
- 1 egg whisked
- 2 tbsp fat free yogurt
- ⅛ tsp salt
- ½ cup old fashioned oats (40g)
- 5 sprays calorie controlled spray oil
- Mash the bananas in a bowl using a fork.
- Once the bananas are nice and smooth, add the whisked egg and mix thoroughly.
- Stir in the yogurt and salt.
- Add the oats and stir to combine.
- Heat your griddle / frying pan over a medium heat. Use a few pumps of calorie controlled spray oil or a little canola oil wiped thinly over the cooking surface *
- Once the griddle / frying pan is hot, spoon a tablespoon or so of the pancake mixture for each pancake. There is enough mixture in this recipe for 4 pancakes.
- Allow the pancakes to cook for about 2 or 3 minutes until you see tiny bubbles around the edges & the middle of the pancake has firmed up a bit.
- Carefully flip the pancakes over. You may need to turn down the heat at this point if you find that they are browning too quickly.
- Cook for a further 2 or 3 minutes before removing from the heat.
- Serve with some fresh berries, sliced bananas and syrup of your choice.
- * some cooking surfaces may react badly to spray oil. If you know that your griddle or frying pan may react use a little canola oil wiped on with a paper towel.
These were good mine did not turn out like pancake more like idk. So when my pancakes didn't flip well I just mixed them up in pan till they were cooked I served overtop of a berry medley with a spoonful of honey. It tasted like banana bread cobbler. I ate whole recipe oops
They are extremely hard to flip and burn fast. So I put mine in a cake pan in the oven with cinnamon and vanilla.

These pancakes did not flip well. Maybe less yogurt? Taste was was good and felt full.
Tasty low-point-mush-scramble? I agree with the other comments and would simply add that I didn't even need syrup. I liked this combo of protein and carbs - I felt full for hours (-:
