Who doesn’t have fond memories of pancakes for breakfast? Stacks of deliciousness slathered in butter and syrup might not seem like they fit into a WW program, but with this recipe you can enjoy banana pancakes (with chocolate chips!) anytime for only 3 points per pancake!

Or you can leave the chocolate chips out and these weight watchers banana  pancakes will only be 1 point for 2 pancakes. 

The base recipe is completely customizable so you can swap the sugar free chocolate chips for fruit or nuts. Finish with a scoop of thick creamy greek yogurt and a drizzle of honey and you’ll be in pancake heaven!

The oats and banana offer slow release energy and plenty of good stuff, plus these freeze really well so I like to have a stack in the freezer ready to thaw for a quick snack.

Tips and Tricks Section for Making weight watchers banana pancakes

  • Because of the oats, these pancakes don’t form the little bubbles as they cook so they’re easy to burn. If you find this is happening, turn the heat down and check the bottom frequently.
  • This recipe makes 6 medium sized pancakes but feel free to make them smaller and keep in the freezer as snacks with cream and jam.
