Pancake Day – Try something different

It’s Pancake day on Tuesday and everyone wants toss pancakes and squeeze lemon juice all over them with sugar if you lucky.  In the back of your mind you know you pancakes mean calories and you know you deserve a treat but what about having something different that is a little lighter on calories??

Why not try Slimming World’s Banoffee Pancakes

Serves:          4
Prep time:     10 minutes, plus chilling
Cook time:    20 minutes

57g/2oz plain flour
2 large eggs
150g pot fat-free natural fromage frais
1 level tbsp caster sugar
142ml/¼pt skimmed milk
a few drops of vanilla essence
2 bananas
200g pot Toffee Müllerlight YogurtFry Light
1 tsp cocoa to dust
mint leaves, to decorate

1.         Sift the flour into a bowl. Beat the eggs, add to the bowl along with the fromage frais and mix. Add the sugar, milk and vanilla essence and whisk to form a smooth batter. Chill for at least 30 minutes.
2.         Meanwhile make the filling: roughly chop the bananas, mix with the yogurt and set aside.
3.         Lightly spray a non-stick frying pan with Fry Light, place over a medium heat until hot. Add a small ladleful of batter, swirling to cover the base and cook for 1-2 minutes on each side until golden and set. Remove and stack between non-stick paper while making 7 more pancakes.
4.         To serve, top each pancake with the banana mixture and fold. Place 2 pancakes onto each serving plate, dust with cocoa and decorate with mint and fat-free natural fromage frais if desired.

Tip:     Bananas are extra healthy – they are rich in vitamins and minerals and are also a great source of fibre.
