Breakfast this morning was slightly decadent to say the least but then again that’s what weekends are all about, having the leisurely time to make something a little bit extra special. I adore pancakes in any shape size or form, they are one of my favourite things to eat and are just delicious on their own with lemon and sweetener. I Paired them this morning with another of my favourite things, sweet gooey cooked banana, they go soft and caramelised & they really are a delightful treat. I added a small teaspoon of pancakes syrup and a wee squirt of whipped cream to add to the decadence! This breakfast comes in at 7 Smartpoints (5 Smartpoints on No Count or 5 Propoints / 3pp on F&H) including the syrup and cream, now you can’t ask for better than that! This serves 2 and you get 2 crêpes each per portion. I hope you’re having a lovely Saturday.
55g Self Raising Flour
125ml Skimmed Milk
A Pinch of Baking Powder (optional)
A Tiny Pinch of Salt
10g Sweet Freedom Pancake Syrup
Preheat your oven to a very low heat to keep the pancakes warm whilst you cook the rest. Sift the Flour, Baking Powder & Salt into a bowl & make a well in the centre (you can add 1/2 to 1 tsp of sweetener at this stage if you like your crêpes sweet). Add the Egg & gradually add the Milk whisking well as you go. Whisk until there are no lumps. Preheat your nonstick pan on a medium high heat & spray with spray oil. Make sure the pan is quite hot & spoon 1/4 of the mixture into the pan, crêpes are supposed to be thin so roll the mixture around in the pan to form a medium-sized crêpe. Fry each crêpe (you will get 4 out of the mix) individually for 2 to 3 minutes each side until golden brown spray the pan lightly with sprayoil between each one. Place the pancakes on a plate as they are cooked separating each one with a small piece of baking paper and place in the oven to keep warm whilst cooking the next one. When the pancakes are done, keep in the oven to keep warm and slice two bananas in a bowl and sprinkle over a teaspoon of sweetener. Fry the bananas in the hot pan for about 2 to 3 minutes each side until caramelised and golden brown. serve the crêpes rolled up drizzled with 5g of syrup per person accompanied by the caramelised banana and a 12g squirt of whipped cream per person. Enjoy!

I may or may not have just eaten this instead of a proper Dinner, totally disgraceful, I ought to be ashamed of myself but it’s so healthy & low in points I’m not even sorry! Sorry not sorry! The entire dessert pizza comes in at 8pp or just 4pp on F&H if you can even believe it. It serves 2 happy campers so 4pp per person or 2pp on F&H happy days! This one is ultra delicious for sure. You can follow the recipe if you’re inclined to eat pizza for breakfast, dinner & dessert like me! 1 Weightwatchers Tortilla Wrap
50g Lightest Philadelphia Cream Cheese
50g 0% Fat Greek Yogurt
1 tsp Sweetener
2 drops of Vanilla extract
15g of Chocolate Spread
A Couple of Fresh Strawberries, Raspberries & Mango cubed
15g Mini Marshmallows Fry the wrap in a pan sprayed with sprayoil over a medium heat for a couple of minutes each side until browning, this crisps up the wrap to hold the toppings without being too soft. Allow to cool completely. Meanwhile mix the cream cheese, yogurt, sweetener, chocolate spread & vanilla well in a bowl & refrigerate for a while to cool. Spread the Cheesecake Chocolate mix generously over the wrap base & top with the fruit & marshmallows. Slice & enjoy!
Get your mouth around that one! 5pp on both plans for this Whopper of a Dessert! Made for sharing if you split it (excuse the pun!) at 2.5pp I’d round the points up to 3pp. Yummy yummy yummy I got love in my tummy! 4 Well Ripe Bananas (the riper the sweeter)
1 Heaped Tsp Chocolate Spread
10g Chocolate Chips
10g Glacé Cherries
20g Light Aerosol Cream
1 Tsp Choc Shot Slice 3 of the bananas into evenly sized pieces & freeze ina tupperware tub overnight. Place the frozen banana slices into your food processor (you’ll need to do this in 3 batches or it will be too overcrowded in the food processor to work) pulse the bananas, at first they will go crumbley, then kinda gooey, scrape down the sides of the food processor a few times at this stage, keep going it takes longer than you think, you can keep the processer on instead of pulsing at this stage & eventually (you need to be patient it takes a good few minutes) the bananas will miraculously turn into creamy soft serve icecream consistency. Add flavourings here: keep 1 plain, add 2 fresh strawberries to the next batch & a heaped tsp chocolate spread to the last batch. Keep blending each for a few more minutes to aerate the icecream. Scoop into small tupperware tubs & refreeze for a few hours until it solidifies more. You could eat it at this point but it’s quite soft icecream. When ready scoop each of the icecream flavours onto your dish & garnish with another split banana, strawberries, chocolate chips, 1 tsp of choc shot, the cream & cherries & enjoy the well deserved fruits of your labour! Enjoy
