Fluffy American style pancakes

  • Author: Pip Payne
  • Total Time: 11 minutes
  • Yield: 1 1x


A delicious, fluffy pancake that is also healthy and lean!

Syns: 1 (baking powder)

Healthy Extra: B (oats)


  • 40 g porridge oats
  • 50 g 0% fat Greek yoghurt (plus extra for serving)
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1 egg
  • pinch of salt
  • low calorie cooking spray- I use the Frylight butter flavour
  • Optional raspberries, blueberries and maple syrup to serve


  1. In a food processor, mix together the oats, baking powder, yoghurt and egg. (Fine to just mix by hand if you don’t have a food processor, it’s just a less smooth consistency)
  2. Stir in the salt, cinnamon and blueberries
  3. Spray a pancake (or frying!) pan with low calorie cooking spray, and put onto a high heat, after about 20 seconds, dollop in the pancake mix (I make 3 from this).
  4. Cook on a high heat for about 30 seconds, then turn down the heat and cook gently until the mixture is firm on top (this takes about 2 minutes)
  5. Spray the top of the pancake with cooking spray, and then flip over carefully with a spatula (make sure you get it right underneath the pancake so it doesn’t break in half)
  6. Turn up the heat again and give it about 15 seconds on a high heat, then another couple of minutes on a low heat, until cooked through.
  7. Serve with more yoghurt, fresh fruit and I like a drizzle of maple syrup too.
