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.
You can also add fresh blueberries! Just drop them onto the pancake batter once the batter is on the griddle.
Perfectly golden brown and delicious!
Weight Watcher Pancakes
- 2 over-ripe bananas mashed
- 2 egg whites
- 1 cup of fat-free plain greek yogurt
- 1/2 cup of fat-free milk
- 1 teaspoon of pure vanilla extract
- 1 cup of all-purpose flour
- 2 teaspoons of baking powder
- 1/2 teaspoon of cinnamon
Preheat a nonstick electric skillet to 325 degrees.
In a medium sized bowl, combine mashed bananas, egg whites, greek yogurt, milk and vanilla extract. Whisk until well combines.
In a larger bowl, combine flour, baking powder and cinnamon and whisk.
Stir wet ingredient into dry ingredients.
Pour 1/4 cup of batter onto hot skillet and cook until golden brown.
To make blueberry pancakes, drop fresh blueberries into pancake batter once they are on the 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.

Girl – you just gave me everything I needed! YUM! I love that they are just 1 point!!!!! Makes for a happy breakfast!
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!
Can you freeze these??
I haven’t tried, but I don’t see why that wouldn’t work just fine.
Yes! I ate one straight from the freezer on vacation
really great pancake recipe. I like that you add the flour as it makes it feel more like a pancake than other recipes. I usually add chopped apples sprinkled with cinnamon for the top of pancake. This morning I pureed strawberries and put that on top of pancakes. really yummy! One WW question I would like to add less flour – because that is the only ingredient that is hiking up the WW points for me. Can you tell me how to tweak the recipe so that I can add less than 1 cup flour. e.g., do I have to add 1/2 C milk?
I topped these with blackberries and raspberries and they were TO DIE FOR!!! OMG Best pancakes I have ever eaten! Thank you for sharing!
I just started the WW Freestyle program 3 weeks ago and I am really liking the new plan. I have been craving pancakes and these were fantastic, they really did the trick. My husband also gave them two thumbs up, they will make it into a normal rotation for us. Thanks!
These were great for Pancake Day today 🙂 and no post dinner guilt!
can you substitute the all purpose baking flour for gluten free baking flour?
I haven’t tried that, but if I do, I’ll update the post and let you know! Thanks for the question!
These are great for WW and I use gluten free flour instead. Amazingly delicious!!!!!!!!!!
I am new to WW and am confused. According to the WW app on my phone, 1/4 cup of flour is 3 points. Your one-point pancakes takes 1 cup of flour. If I make 4 pancakes, wouldn’t the points be 3 points per pancake?
Hi Cindy! The recipe makes a total of 14 pancakes. Hope that helps!
Thank you Melissa. Yes that makes sense now. When no one is looking, I may sprinkle a couple mini chocolate chips onto each one. . . .
I could not find your skinny one point pancakes on the WW website so I added the recipe in myself. In the notes section I wrote that the recipe did not belong to me and I retrieved it from https://www.number-2-pencil.com/skinny-one-point-pancakes/.
Thank you for the amazing recipes!!
These pancakes were delicious!
Have you used pumpkin instead of the bananas?
So is it ONE point PER pancake??
About how round are your pancaks?
I measure the batter using a 1/4 measuring cup.
Love this recipe, thank you!
These are delicious. I used one banana (instead of two) and added 1/8 tsp nutmeg. I left the mashed banana a little chunky and added an extra 2 Tbs of the nonfat milk. Ate 3 served up with ripe strawberries. I am full, my brain and my mouth are more than happy, and its 3 points. So far I am not experiencing the “pancake lag and sleepiness” I usually get after 3 pancakes. I love that the point count is so low because it does leave room for syrup when I want it. Winner!! Thank you.
That sounds great! Thanks for sharing!
Melissa, I never left a comment before, but wanted to thank you for this recipe. My husband and I LOVE pancakes but I dread to make them because they normally are so fattening. Also I only have 20 points a day and try to use as little as possible early I in the day. My pancakes were just a bit gooey so I may add just a bit more flour or a little bit less banana next time. Just to clarify why people were confused about points was you mentioned making each pancake 1/4 of batter in your recipe, but I am pretty sure you meant 1/4 CUP of the batter. Will definitely be making these again. My fussy husband thought they were good also. Thanks again!
Thank you so much Toni! I appreciate you taking the time to leave a comment. ❤️ I’m so glad you both liked the recipe!
if you don’t have 1 cup of fat-free plain greek yogurt what can you use
Sorry Leona, I’m not sure there is a good substitute. Possibly fat free sour cream, but that could create a totally different texture.
Jean Mason, I live in the Uk and we don’t use cups as measurement what are the equivalent in 1bs & ounces. do you know please.
One week into WW freestlye. I’m going to try your recipe tomorrow. What’s the best topping?
I’m not sure if my bananas were not big enough (because I think they were small) but the sing 1/4 cup of batter mine only made 10 pancakes so my calories were 93 account riding to myfitnesspal. Would the size of the banana make the difference? They are absolutely delicious! IThank you
I’m not sure what I’m doing wrong but I’m only get 10 pancakes. And I measured out with 1/4 cup measure.
What could be used if anything for the greek yogurt? I’m allergic to dairy.
Do you think you can use Fat free sour cream? I really can’t stomach the yogurt.
These look fabulous and I’m looking forward to giving them a try! What do you think about putting in some pumpkin purée?
Can you do these in a waffle press?
I had been craving pancakes since starting ww and these were perfect! Added the blueberries and I really liked the flavor! Thanks for the great recipe.
I never comment on websites but I tried these and they are fantastic! I HATE bananas but thought I would give them a try and I couldn’t even taste the bananas! Thank you for posting! These will become a mainstay by me….I can tell!
I’m making this recipe as I’m typing this and I cannot figure out what to use as the fat for cooking them? Does everyone just making them directly on the griddle with no oil? Thanks!
These look delicious! I can’t wait to try them.
Could you use one whole egg instead of the 2 egg whites? Or even 2 whole eggs instead of the whites? Now that eggs are zero points, I’m just curious.
Hi Molly! You could, but the egg whites also serve to help lift and lighten the pancakes. I think a whole egg would work, but would make them denser. Let me know if you try it!
These sound great! I was wondering if unsweetened applesauce would work just as well as bananas? I’m not a banana eater but would love to try this recipe.
Awesome! Pancakes and staying on track is a WIN!
These pancakes are awesome, and I love the healthier take on them. Bonus, my daughter loves them!
Absolutely loved these pancakes. They were such a hit with my kids as well.
This is by far the besy recipe for lighter pancakes that I have found! Delicious!
My go-to pancake treat when I’m following WW!
I liked these. I’ve been looking for a low calorie pancake and these are tasty and no added sugar. I added blue berries to sweeten it up.
how much pumpkin should I use if I am not using bananas
These are truly yummy! Hard to believe they are just 1 point. I will be making these often. Thank you so mucj!
Can you use reg fat free yougurt instead of Greek don’t care for the taste of Greek yogurt
Maybe if you strain the yogurt? I think the thin texture of regular yogurt would cause the pancakes to be too thin.
Yummy. I used self rising flour and fat free vanilla Greek yogurt. Hope that didn’t alternate the points
These were delicious. Mine came out very wet though. I had to use unsweetened almond milk because that’s all I had. I also used one whole egg and had to use 1/3 cup because I couldn’t find the 1/4 cup. They were light and fluffy on the outside, but wet in the middle. They still tasted good, but wondering if the milk changed the consistency?
Omg!!! I haven’t had pancakes in so long because they’re too high in calories. These are amazing!! I had half for supper last night&the rest this morning for breakfast. I can’t tell you how delicious they were! A tiny bit of sugar free syrup&I was in heaven. I will be eating these often- thank you!!
When I put the nutritional info into WW it said it was 2 points.
You need to use the recipe builder to calculate accurately.
These were excellent, it is the first time I made these and they tasted great. Thanks
