One thing I’m asked for a lot is a banana free version of the flourless pancakes that are popular with us WWers so when I woke up the other morning with a craving for some drop scones (or scotch pancakes as many call them), I set about creating myself some banana free, WW friendly ones (albeit these ones do have flour in them!!). The result was lovely, tasting very close to the real thing for many less points!
You can top these with whatever you fancy but since the flavour of the scone itself is so lovely, I kept it minimal with a little honey and handful of raspberries. A dollop of FF yoghurt would work too (or even a little ice cream if you are having them as a dessert – just be sure to add the extra points).
The recipe below makes 5 scones for 5sp. The extra 1sp comes from the honey at the end so if you aren’t having honey, reduce the points to 5sp.
Makes 5 ‘scones’ – 5sp for all 5 plus an extra sp for 1 tsp honey
45g self-raising flour
2 tbsp. powdered sweetener (I use Canderel)
½ tsp baking powder
2 tbsp skimmed milk
1 tsp orange extract (or vanilla extract)
Mix the dry ingredients together into a bowl. Mix the wet ingredients separately in another small bowl and then add to the dry ingredients. Mix until well combined – you should have a relatively thick consistency.
Take a large frying pan, spray with 1kal and pop onto a high heat. Drop a tbsp. measure of the mix into one corner of the pan, swirl a little to make a round ‘scone’ shape and repeat with another 2 tbsps. dollops of the mixture. Fry for two minutes (until you see the little bubbles start to form on the surface) and then flip and fry for another two minutes.
Continue until you have used up all of the mixture (I made 5 in total).
Serve with a drizzle of honey and a handful of raspberries.
