    Ingredients:

    1 Egg
    3 tbsp Sweetner
    Vanilla Essence

    Method:

    Separate an egg into two bowls - white and yolk.

    Whisk the white and add 3 tsp sweetner (or to taste), whisking til white and meringue-ish
    Add some vanilla essence to the yolk.

    Add the yolk to the white and fold together - this is your batter.

    Frylight a pan and add all of the batter, spreading it gently with the back of a spoon.

    Be gentle - this pancake is fragile! leave completely alone until you can slide a fish slice (etc) underneath, carefully turn it over to cook the second side. again, leave it alone until done, then lift it out onto your plate and add your toppings and enjoy!

    i copied the recipie from slimming world support on facebook

    but thats what I am asking I dont understand how wholemeal flour is Syned when bread with prob more crap in it it HEB????? Im confused I know Tesco granary flour has been syn free classified according to this forum, if this is the case then we could make syn free pancakes with this flour and use milk as HEA or even water.

    Thank you so much for the pancake recipe Natasha. You are a star! :)

    Melon - I have not heard of any syn free flour tbh. The probable reason for flour not being a hexb will be something to do with energy density, ease of consumption etc. Best ask SW for clarification or just take the syns hit and enjoy :)

    me to lol i always thought that all flour was synned thats what ive read and been told. Most HEXB's are 6.5 - 7 syns i think so i suppose if you could work out how much to make these syns it would be fine but dont take my word for it, but i wouldnt go for granary as granary bread is synned because of the seeds do you have a link to the thread it was on ?

    But bread isnt syn free if you use it as a hex is it? Its quite high(funny thatseeing flour is quite high) its used for your hex so to add fiber into your diet, you would go eat a hex equivilant or raw flour would you now lol

    i think someone said higher up the thread that this was ok in response to me saying I did it anyway.

    I think the pancake/yorkie issue is that you would not get the same mileage out of the flour as when it is made into bread. For example, when I make wholemeal bread rolls, I use approx 28g of flour in each roll. The dough then rises to at least double the volume.

    Using flour in a pancake would make something as flat as...erm...a pancake. Don't know about you, but I can inhale several pancakes in one sitting. The bread is more filling so maybe that is why it is classed as a hex. I dunno. Best ask the powers that be at SW.
