Tips for Making Zero Point Banana Pancakes
While this is an easy pancake recipe to prepare, the batter can be a bit tricky to work with. (Hey, the pancakes are zero points. You have to be able to work with it a bit.)
Here’s what I’ve found makes the best WW pancakes:
- Add a bit of flour or pancake mix. If you can spare the points, the best way to make sure your pancakes turn out fluffy and soft is to add just a touch of flour. Each 1 T of flour or pancake mix is 1 point added to the entire recipe. Use white or whole wheat flour, Kodiak pancake mix (my preference), other high-protein or light pancake mix, or flour of your choice such as white, whole wheat, oat, or gluten-free. Typically I only add 2-3 T total to the recipe, but the difference it makes in the texture and rise is well worth it.
- Use cooking spray or a high-quality Teflon pan. These can stick so use cooking spray or a really good non-stick pan.
- Cook low and slow. I’ve found cooking these more slowly at a lower temperature (medium low) helps prevent burning.
- Don’t turn too soon. Avoid the temptation to turn these pancakes too soon, or you are sure to have a sticky, gloopy mess on your hands. Give them time to fully brown on one side and be partially cooked before turning.
WW Banana Pancake Recipe
This recipe is delicious and quick to make for breakfast, and you can’t beat having zero point pancakes on the breakfast table. Here’s how it’s done.
Gather ingredients. Be sure to use cooking spray or a high-quality Teflon pan so that they pancakes don’t stick. While optional, adding 2-3 T of pancake mix or flour will help your pancakes hold together better (add 1 point per T of flour).
Mash banana, then mix all the ingredients in a bowl.
Carefully cook pancakes as they will burn easily. We have found that “low and slow” gives the best results. Cook at a slightly lower temperature (medium low) for a longer period of time than you would a typical pancake.
Serve the pancakes as is, with a side of mixed fruit or with sugar free syrup.
