The ultimate Slimming World Low Syn Chocolate Pancakes - created for all the chocolate lovers out there, myself included
How is it, I haven't yet created chocolate pancakes? I am kind of embarrassed about that, I mean I just LOVE chocolate and why it never occurred to me until now, to make a chocolate version is beyond me. It just seemed totally fitting this weekend, especially with Pancake day almost upon us.
But today it was all about the Chocolate Pancakes and boy did that get the attention of the kids, they were hovering over me the whole time I was making these, as if they had never been fed, unpatiently waiting for me to make these up, photograph and let them dig in. My little taste testers I suppose you could call them.
When I placed the plate of the table, I wish I had of photographed their faces. These were a huge hit, all kinds of yummy words were spoken after every biteful. They totally loved them. I literally had to fight the fork off them to get a taste myself and they are just what I had hoped for, yummy chocolate goodness. Totally will hit the spot of any chocolate craving.
For the pancake mix, it is pretty close to my American Style Pancakes, which I first posted on here many years ago now, but obviously a couple of additions to make them chocolatey. I use unsweetened cocoa powder (as it's so low in syns and you only need a tablespoon) and then to sweeten some sukrin:1 (my favourite choice of sweetener, it is natural and has no aftertaste)
For toppings, it is totally up to you, I went for some fat free vanilla yoghurt (inbetween each pancakes) and then added some fresh raspberries to the top and a drizzle of Sweet Freedom Choc Shot for that extra chocolatey taste.
This amazing plate of Chocolate Pancakes is actually a one person serving using your HEb and a few syns, but they are pretty filling, so you could split them into two servings and have them spaced up in the day if you want or syn a couple.
These Chocolate Pancakes are also gluten free and vegetarian-friendly.
How will you serve yours?
- 40g (1.5oz) of oats
- ⅓ cup (80ml) of fat free vanilla Greek yoghurt
- 2 large eggs
- ½ tsp of baking powder
- ¼ tsp of baking soda
- 1 tablespoon of granulated sweetener
- 1 tablespoon of 100% cocoa powder
- Add oats to blender and blend until fine
- Add the baking powder and baking soda and mix to combine
- Whisk in the eggs, yoghurt, granulated sweetener, cocoa powder until a smooth batter
- Heat a non stick crepe or frying pan over a low heat (do not have pan too hot)
- Once heated, spray with oil and spoon some of the mixture onto the pan (I cook approx two pancakes at once (don't overcrowd or they will be hard to flip)
- Once you see little bubbles start to appear on the top, they should be ready to flip, you can test by carefully trying to slide a spatula underneath, they will lift easy if they are done, if not, leave them a little longer.
- Flip and cook other side, spray pan again and then repeat with remaining batter, until all batter is gone.
- I got 5 pancakes from the mixture, but how many you get will depend on how much you spoon on at a time.
- Serve with your choice of toppings.
