Those of you who frequent here, have probably already tried my American Style Pancakes (a recipe I came up with at the beginning of 2011, when I wanted a low synned pancake that didn’t taste eggy).
I used to make a similar type pancake many years before, for my son when he was weaning by adding Ready Brek to the mixture, so figured - hey oats should work too.
Then came the idea for a low synned Red Velvet Pancake recipe, as I love red velvet anything, but it is usually accompanied by a high syn value.
The original recipe I had on here for these, was great, but it was missing a little something. So I recently revisited this to work on making it even better (something I am often doing with my recipes) to ensure I give you delicious home cooked and low syn meals.
The result was awesome, these are really delicious and will now be a regular, when I fancy a treat and have a healthy extra b choice available.
If you have a few additional syns spare, these are even more decadent with a little drizzle of maple syrup (don't forgot to add some syns though if you do - 2 syns per tablespoon).
Look at how deliciously fluffy and decadent they look with an additional drizzle of maple syrup for some extra syns - yum!
- ⅓ cup/35g of oats (1xHEb) (can use gluten free variety)
- ½ tablespoon (2.5g) of unsweetened pure cocoa powder (1 syn for this and the baking powder/soda)
- 1 tsp of baking powder
- ½ tsp of baking soda
- 90g (3oz) of fat free cherry yoghurt
- 2 eggs
- 1 tsp of good quality red food colouring
- 1 /2 tsp of vanilla extract
- 2 tsp of icing sugar (1 syn)
- 1 tablespoon of low fat cream cheese (1 syn)
- raspberries or strawberries for topping
- spray oil
Syn value of cocoa powder can vary from brand to brand. The three brands I use are 100% cocoa powder (not Dutch Processed) and are 1 tbs for 20 calories (1 syn).
You should always double check the syn values of items which are synned, as brands can differ.
