1½ Syns each

25 minutes plus 20 minutes soaking

Makes 12

Ingredients

  • 2 large eggs
  • 230ml unsweetened almond drink
  • 1 level tsp sweetener granules, plus 1 level tsp to serve
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 50g porridge oats
  • 1 level tsp baking powder
  • 50g self-raising flour
  • Low-calorie cooking spray

For the sauce:

  • 50g blueberries
  • 50g raspberries
  • 1 level tbsp sweetener granules

Method

  1. Preheat your oven to 150°C/fan 130°C/gas 2.
  2. Separate the eggs into 2 mixing bowls and, using a fork, whisk the almond drink, sweetener and vanilla extract into the yolks. Stir in the oats and baking powder and leave to soak for 20 minutes.
  3. Meanwhile, make the sauce. Blitz the blueberries and raspberries with 1 level tbsp sweetener granules (if you don’t have a food processor, mashing them with a fork or potato masher is fine). Press through a fine sieve into a bowl, discarding the seeds in the sieve, and pour the sauce into a jug. Chill until needed.
  4. Sift the flour over the oaty mixture and fold it in. Whisk the egg whites into soft peaks and gently fold into the oats using a large metal spoon.
  5. Spray a large non-stick frying pan with low-calorie cooking spray and place over a medium heat. When it’s hot, add a few large spoonfuls of the batter, spaced well apart (you’re aiming to make 12 pancakes altogether). Cook for 2 minutes or until bubbles start to appear in the top of the pancakes and the undersides are nicely golden brown. Flip the pancakes over and cook for another 2 minutes. Put them on a plate, cover with a clean tea towel and keep warm in the oven while you cook the rest.
  6. Serve with the sauce (count 1 Syn per level tbsp) and the extra sweetener sprinkled over.
