Coconut Pancakes with Caramelised Bananas - Weight Watchers ProPoints

This Weight Watchers recipe for Coconut Pancakes with Caramelised Bananas is just 7 ProPoints.

So you can have pancakes on Pancake Day without worrying too much about your weight. We loved the caramelised bananas with the maple syrup, they finished the pancakes off nicely.

Coconut Pancakes with Caramelised Bananas

Remember a couple of posts back I did a Weight Watchers Jamaican Pork recipe from their ProPoints book called 'Seriously Satisfying?

I was kindly sent a second Weight Watchers ProPoints book Oriental Express which is packed full of more yummy recipes.

'Oriental Express' covers everything from stir-fry recipes. light bites, grills, rice and curries to desserts like this one above - all based on the ProPoints plan. This pancake and banana dessert is only 7 ProPoints.


The book has a bottom that opens out to form a base so the book stands up, making it easy to read and follow your chosen recipe. I really like the flip-style pages too.

Coconut Pancakes with Caramelised Bananas
Serves 4

Ingredients:
40g self raising flour
1 tablespoon caster sugar
a pinch of salt
2 tablespoons of unsweetened desiccated coconut
175ml of skimmed milk
1 egg, lightly beaten
low-fat cooking spray

To serve:
4 tablespoons of 0% fat Greek yoghurt

For the Caramelised Bananas:
2 large bananas - not too ripe, peeled and thickly sliced on the diagonal
zest of 1/2 an orange
4 tablespoons of orange juice
1/2 a teaspoon of ground cinnamon
2 tablespoons of maple syrup

*Please note salt isn't in the Weight Watchers recipe but I think it needs a pinch.

Method:
Sift the flour, and salt and sugar into a mixing bowl, stir in the coconut then make a well in the middle.

Pour in the milk, then whisk in the egg to make a smooth batter.

Set aside for 30 minutes.

Heat a large non-stick frying pan and spray with the cooking spray.

Using 40ml of the batter per pancake, cook 3 or 4 at a time.

Cook for about 1 to 2 minutes per side until golden.

Keep warm while you cook the caramelised bananas.
Spray the hot frying pan again with the cooking spray and place the bananas in the pan.

Cook for 30 seconds or until slightly golden then turn over and cook for 30 seconds.

Add the orange zest, orange juice, cinnamon and maple syrup and heat through for no more than a minute until the sauce is reduced and thickened.

Place two pancakes on each plate and top with the caramelised bananas.

Serve each with a spoonful of yoghurt.

How to cook 7 ProPoints Recipe Coconut Pancakes with Caramelised Bananas

  1. Get the nectarines on the go as they will take about 15 to 20 minutes.
  2. You will need a suitably sized non-stick frying pan that can take the nectarine slices without them being on top of each other.
  3. Heat up the butter and add the prepared nectarines. Cook over low heat for about 5 minutes before turning, then continue to cook for a further 5 minutes.
  4. While that's happening, make the pancake batter so you have it ready.
  5. Now drizzle over the honey and sugar and give it a gentle stir to coat the nectarines.
  6. Continue to cook for another 5 minutes by which time they should have started to colour nicely.
  7. Turn them over again to colour the other side. When they're beautifully caramelised add the juice of the orange to the pan and stir to get the gorgeous sticky bits from the pan. 
  8. Turn off the heat and cook your pancakes.
  9. Serve each pancake with slices of nectarine and drizzle over a little of the orangery syrup. You can add a dollop of ice cream if you want to.

  4. Hi Christina - it only came out here in the UK on Thursday. I can't find it on Amazon as yet - but I'm sure it will be available in the US too very soon.
    Soon as I can find it on Amazon I'll put a link in this post for both dot com and UK Amazon sites.
