How do you make syn free pancakes
Copied and pasted from a recipe posted by somebody else (sorry can't remember who but I saved it in a Word document as I knew I'd use it loads!!) -

Syn Free Pancakes:

1 Egg per pancake
2-3 Teaspoons sweetener (depending on own taste)
3-4 Drops of vanilla essence

First separate the white from the yolk and put into separate bowls, Whisk the egg white until fluffy and add the sweetener, In the other bowl add the vanilla essence then fold the yolk into the egg white
Heat a frying pan with frylight, add the mix and spread as you would a normal pancake after a few mins flip over (But do be careful they are much more delicate than a regular pancake) And then Hey presto scrummy syn free pancakes.

Today was a green day -

Breakfast - porridge with water and sweetener (hexb)

Snack - banana

Lunch - homemade veg soup with 2 slices Nimble wholemeal (hexb), mullerlight, slice of melon and a pear.

Snack - 3 x babybel light (hexa) & a satsuma

Dinner - had a bit of a problem as thought I'd taken a portion of homemade vegetable curry out of the freezer and warmed it up and served with couscous. Was half way through eating it when I found a piece of chicken and realised that it was actually chicken curry and on a green day! Other than the chicken it was syn free and i counted just 5 smallish bite sized pieces so I reckon no more than 3.5 syns although I had intended it to be a completely free meal!!

Pudding - was going to have a mince pie and some brandy butter but had to change my plans due to the chicken incident!!! Had a pot of 0% Total yoghurt with frozen berries and 2 meringue nests (2.5 syns each) instead!

2 hexb and 1 hex a
Total syns - 8.5
