Skinny One Point Weight Watcher Pancakes

Skinny One Point Pancakes - each pancake is just 40 calories and 1 Weight Watchers Smart Point.

These skinny pancakes are perfectly fluffy and delicious and you would never know that they are just one Weight Watcher Smart Point each! These pancakes have no added sugar or fat and are made with greek yogurt so they have 3 grams of protein in each pancake. I haven’t had a chance to officially share on the blog, but I’ve been using the Weight Watchers Smart Point program for a little over a year and have lost 60 pounds so far. I think a big part of my success with the program is that I make the same recipes for our whole family. I’m always trying to create point-friendly options that my kids love too. These pancakes are kid and parent approved!

Start by mashing two very ripe bananas. These give the pancakes a touch of sweetness without the added sugar. Then stir in fat-free plain greek yogurt, egg whites, skim milk and pure vanilla extract.

In a separate bowl, whisk together dry ingredients then add wet ingredients to dry and stir just until combined. Measure pancakes by the level 1/4 cup full onto non stick griddle.

Nutrition Information is from the Weight Watcher Recipe Builder and My Fitness Pal Nutrition Calculator. I made the serving size one pancake so it’s easier to track points. 3 pancakes are 3 Weight Watcher Smart Points, 4 pancakes are 4 Weight Watcher Smart Points, etc.

For me, the perfect serving size is three pancakes. Then I can add fresh fruit, a sprinkle of chopped pecans and a drizzle of pure maple syrup. I really love this pancake recipe because I can add my favorite toppings and keep it point friendly. I usually serve them with a sunny-side up egg or a serving of turkey sausage on the side.

I adapted this recipe from a Greek Yogurt Pancake recipe I shared back when I first started blogging. The post is old and the pictures need to be updated, but it’s a great recipe too! I replaced the sugar and butter in the recipe with bananas to make it more Weight Watcher Smart Point friendly and I don’t think you will miss it at all!

I’d love for you to keep up on my new projects and recipes. You can follow me on Facebook and Twitter. You can also find me on Pinterest, that’s my favorite place to hang out and I’d love to see you there.

  1. Girl – you just gave me everything I needed! YUM! I love that they are just 1 point!!!!! Makes for a happy breakfast!

  2. And now I’m going to need to insist that you share about your progress (or just to me). I’m thinking of starting and WW is so new (different from in 2001 when I lost 22 pounds) I don’t really know where to start. I think that arming myself with recipes and strategies would be the key to my success…share, share, share!! I’m desperate…can’t wait to try these!
