Nothing beats the gorgeous smell of baking through the kitchen of a Saturday morning. Hot & fresh out of the oven Delicious Skinny Banana & Milk Chocolate Baked Oat Muffins. A delicious weekend treat at just 3 propoints a muffin (or 1pp on Filling & Healthy). This makes 6 breakfast muffins (20pp per recipe or 4pp per recipe F&H). I hope you have a Fabulous Saturday!
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!
*repost from fb blog * So I just had this after my chilli wrap and it was soooo delicious, I think I need a little lie down now! So here’s the skinny: 1 Gingernut Biscuit crushed, 35g Dalfour fat free Caramel Sauce, trust me 35g is loads as this stuff is super super sweet! 1 Banana Chopped, 10g Reduced fat squirty cream. 5pp Enjoy my beauties, this was fantabulous!
A lovely Ice Cold Treat!
180mls Skimmed Milk
2 Tsps Choc Shot
3/4 Ice Cubes
12g Light Whipped Cream
Place everything except the cream in your Smoothie Maker, Nutribullet or Blender & Blitz well. Serve in a long glass with 12g Whipped Cream to top Enjoy! 4pp or 2pp on F&H. You could add a few oats for a more substantial breakfast smoothie just point the extras!
Oh how I wish these were my invention! Sadly they are not, this recipe is by the lovely evil geniuses over at theburlapbag.com blog. I stumbled upon them & just had to share them with you lovely people! This made 8 Cookies even though the original recipe makes 16, I like bigger cookies because I’m greedy like that & c’mon they’re still only 1pp per Biccie! Hurray! These would be perfect Breakfast Biscuits with the use of Porridge Oats & Bananas to create them. Here’s the skinny:
1 Cup Porridge Oats (90g)
2 Large Ripe Bananas
I also used 10g Chocolate Chips
You Could shake these up numerous ways by using Cinnamon, Cocoa Powder, Almonds Chopped, Raisins, Dried Cranberries, Chopped Walnuts, Coconut the list is endless just don’t forget to point any additions! The 10g Chocolate Chips still make these 1pp each. Mash the Oats & Bananas together. As Bananas vary in size if it’s too runny add more oats & point them if it’s too dry add more Banana. Mash well, mine were a slightly dry but I felt they would hold better this way rather than too runny because they would spread & go to mush. Roll out & flatten into 8 Cookie shapes. Place on a baking tray lined with baking paper. Lightly press a few chocolate chips into each cookie & bake in a preheated oven at 180c for 15 minutes. This makes slightly soft chewy cookies, if you prefer them harder cook them a bit longer but be careful they don’t burn. Enjoy!
