Ingredients

Wholemeal Flour

180 g

Baking powder

1 teaspoons, level

Bicarbonate of Soda

½ teaspoons, level

Salt

½ teaspoons

Egg, whole, raw

3 large, raw

Semi Skimmed Milk

300 ml

0% fat natural Greek yogurt

100 g

Honey

60 g

Rapeseed Oil

2 tablespoons

Vanilla Extract

½ teaspoons, level

Lemon(s)

1 zest(s) of 1

Calorie controlled cooking spray

4 spray(s)

Instructions

  1. Mix together the flour, baking powder, bicarbonate of soda and salt in a large bowl.
  2. In a separate bowl, whisk together the eggs, milk, yogurt, honey, oil, vanilla extract and lemon zest until smooth. Add the egg mixture to the flour mixture and stir until just blended.
  3. Mist a nonstick frying pan with the cooking spray and set over a medium-low heat. Fill a ladle two-thirds full of the batter and pour onto the pan. Tilt the pan so that the batter spreads as thinly as possible. Cook for 1-2 minutes until one side is lightly golden then turn the pancake and cook for another 30 seconds to 1 minute. Slide it onto a plate then repeat with the remaining batter, misting the pan with more cooking spray as necessary, to make a total of 16 pancakes.
  4. Serve 2 pancakes per person topped with 25g 0% fat natural Greek yogurt, a handful of fresh blueberries, some pared lemon zest and ½ teaspoon clear honey. The SmartPoints will be Green 7| Blue 6 | Purple 6.
  5. To freeze Let the pancakes cool completely, then layer between squares of baking paper. Wrap pairs of pancakes (or a complete stack) in kitchen foil and freeze for up to 2 months. Defrost at room temperature, then reheat the foil-wrapped pancakes in an oven that’s preheated to 180°C, fan 160°C, gas mark 4, for around 10 minutes.
