Slimming World 'Syn Free' Pancakes

I've made loads of Slimming World recipes over the years but with the exception of Weetabix Cake I've not found many 'sweet' recipes that really work for me.  They always seem to be missing something (that'll be the sugar and fat I guess!) and I generally find them not worth the effort or syns.

Until today that is when I discovered 'Magic Pancakes' a recipe from my old SW consultant in the UK. They are so easy to make and are 'syn free' if you count them as a 'healthy B option.

Slimming World syn free pancakes

All you need is...
35g poridge oats (Healthy extra B choice or 6 syns)
A Muller light yoghurt ( I used a Vitaline yoghurt as Muller lights are hard to find in Cyprus, hence the slightly pink colour as it was cherry flavour!)
3 eggs
Sweetener to taste.

Mix the porridge oats and yoghurt, and leave in fridge overnight.
Add the eggs and sweetener and you have your pancake mix!

I served mine with loads of strawberries and some low fat Greek yoghurt and they were absolutely delicious!

Today was weigh in day for me and after being really annoyed at my 1lb gain last week despite 'shredding' every day I was very pleased that I'd kept at it as it the loss was just a bit delayed and showed on the scales this week with a 4.5lb loss.

It also meant I got my 1/2 stone award today!


  1. Well done on the weight loss and those pancakes look yummy.

  2. i dont have any oats but i have ready brek so i might try these for my tea tonight. no wonder you scoffed the lot Emma lol x

  3. ooops forgot to congratulate you on the briiiant weight loss - well done you!!! how much more do you want to lose? x

  4. About a stone or 1.5 stone ish, will let you know when I get closer :)

  5. Well done you with the weightloss but these are not bloody pancakes! Where's the eggs?

  6. Thought i'd written the recipe wrong then, did you mean where's the flour? :)

  7. Thank you. I've just joined slimming world last week here in the UK and I also want to lose about a stone and a half. I looked everywhere for magic pancakes and your blog appeared. How have you got on since Feb when you posted this? Best wishes.

  8. I've been meaning to do an update post now but keep getting sidetracked! I've lost a stone so far this time, got just under half stone to go. Good luck with your weight loss x

The one with the massive flashback

Facebook drives me mad a lot of the time, not mad enough to not live on it constantly of course (It's not that I *want* too, I HAVE to because of my work, well that and I'm far too nosy not to!)  It's full of rubbish a lot of the time, but also lots of little gems, funny things and random links that are a major time suck but so addictive. Every now and again though it throws up a gem, or in this case inspiration for a blog post... Recently I saw a link to an 80's nostalgia website and this particular post was all about the 'Come and Praise' hymn book that surely every 80s kid held in their grubby little hands once upon a time. (I couldn't find the original post, so I'm making my own!) We used this book every morning in assembly throughout my primary school years. They were kept in a box and handed out at the door as we left the classroom to go to the 'Big Hall' for assembly.  There were many very battered copies in the box and a few b

20 Questions - Interview with a 3 year old.

I came across a great idea on Pinterest a while ago where you ask your child a series of questions each year on their birthday staring at age 3 and then you can see how their answers change over the years.  I asked him the questions over a few days as and when he decided to cooperate and answer them - to most of them the answer was first 'I don't know' which is what he responds to everything at the moment even if he knows so I had to try a few times to get an answer out of him! Now he keeps asking me the questions too! 1. What is your favourite colour?   Light blue (this changes each time you ask him!)  2. What is your favourite toy?       Thomas   (the tank engine)  3. What is your favorite fruit?   Grapes 4. What is your favourite tv show?   Thomas  5. What is your favourite thing to eat for lunch?   Ham and salad cream ( sandwiches )  6. What is your favorite outfit?     Boys will be boys (t-shirt, doesn't care which shorts!)  7. Wha

Eczema? Rosea? Who knows!

I'm writing about this, not because I particularly want to remember it but in case someone can help! Each year of his life my poor little man has suffered for a period of time with an unknown rash.  I don't know if it has been the same thing each time but I guess it must be, it never occurred to me to take photos each time (can't have developed the blogger mentality at that point obviously!)  so I can't directly compare.  The first time he got a rash at 7 months old in December we took him to the doctors, they didn't really know what it was but gave us some cream (no idea what it was) and within a couple of days it went.   It came back a couple of times and eventually I realised that each time he got it he'd been wearing polyester.  He was then rash free until June when just after his 1st birthday was ill with a fever, as the fever went the rash appeared and spent ages trying various different creams and potions until it eventually it went within a
