Pink pancakes

  • Author: Pip Payne

  • Yield: 1 1x


Just a bit of fun for pancake day in the lead up to Valentine’s! 

Syns: 0.5 for the batch


  • 40 g porridge oats
  • 35 g fat free fromage frais
  • 35 g raspberries (frozen or fresh)
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • Low calorie cooking spray (I used Butter Fry light)


  1. Combine all of the ingredients thoroughly in a food processor
  2. Heat a good, non-stick frying pan or pancake pan and spray with low calorie cooking spray, turn the heat up high
  3. Dollop the mixture into the pan with a dessert spoon- this makes 4-5 small pancakes
  4. Allow to cook on a high heat for a minute or so, then turn the heat to low and cook for 2-3 minutes until the top of the pancakes has started to solidify
  5. Spray the tops of the pancakes with low calorie cooking spray, turn the heat up again, and flip over with a spatula
  6. Cook on high heat for 1 minute, then turn down and cook on a low heat for about another 2 minutes


These pancakes are not very sweet on their own (unless you have been lucky enough to get super-sweet raspberries!), so in my opinion they do need to be served with something sweet- I chose Sweet Freedom choc shot, but honey or golden syrup also works! And some fresh berries go perfectly.
