Pancake Day (or Shrove Tuesday if you want to be particular) is drawing closer, and who doesn’t want pancakes then, in some form or another? To have “proper” pancakes on Slimming World would mean using quite a few syns, but with these you barely need to use any, so you can still have your pancakes and eat them!

Since I discovered this recipe, I have them at least once a week for my breakfast as they are absolutely delicious and really filling. They are more like American style thicker pancakes, but still very tasty. The best bit is that they are syn free on Slimming World too using your Healthy Extra B, and you can be really varied with your toppings.

Ingredients (makes 5-6)

  • 40 g plain porridge oats
  • small pot flavoured Greek style yogurt (0.5 syn – but do double check. Or use syn free plain Greek style yogurt)
  • 2 eggs, beaten
  • 1 tbsp sweetener (optional) (0.5 syn)
  • drop of flavoured extract (optional)
  • Fry Light
  • your choice of toppings


  • Mix the porridge oats with the yogurt and leave for 10-15 mins for the yogurt to soak in. You could also leave this step in the fridge overnight.
  • Mix in the eggs (and sweetener and extract if using) and leave for another 10-15 mins.
  • Using a tbsp of the mixture at a time, fry the pancakes with the Fry Light over a medium heat until golden on the outside, flipping half way through. (You could do this with all of them in a large pan or use two pans – one for frying and one on a very low heat for keeping warm.)
  • Serve on a plate with your favourite fruity toppings and a bit of honey or even Choc Shot (remember to syn these).
  • Enjoy!

  1. Hi Stacey,

    Great recipe!!! I’m so glad I stumbled on it (from Twitter). Do you know if egg whites would work with this recipe? If so, what would I need to adjust?


    1. Hi Joe, thanks for stumbling here! I haven’t tried it with just egg whites, but the egg is really just there to bind the mixture and hold it together when cooked so if they were whisked a little first to thicken them up, that might work.

  2. Yes perfect for me and I can help me lose weight

  3. Hi

    How much grams is the yoghurt?

    Did you try the mixture in a wafflemaker?
    Thank you 🙂

    1. Hi Elina and thanks for your comment 🙂 the yogurt is around 125 grams. I haven’t personally tried this in a waffle maker but I know people who have, and it works wonderfully!

  4. This sounds great, is this a tweek and would I need to syn any thing?

    1. Hi, no this isn’t considered a tweak – it’s kind of like making overnight or baked oats, which are both recipes on the SW website 🙂 Only thing that would need to be synned, is the sweetener if using, and any toppings if they contain syns.

  5. Hi,

    How many can you have as your healthy B’s? Also how many syns are they as normal eating?

    1. Hi Lisa. You could have all of the pancakes using your HEB, as 40g of oats is one HEB. Using syns, 40g of oats are 7 syns, so just divide this by however many pancakes you make as these are the only syns if you exclude sweetener.

  6. Hi Stacey. Just made the pancakes and they were delicious. Topped them with mixed berries and honey. A definite go to pud from now on. Thanks for recipe Aileen

    1. Yay, glad you enjoyed them!

  7. How many calories are in the pancakes?

    1. Hi Emma, I’m not really sure to be honest, I don’t tend to work on calories these days!
