These One Point Weight Watchers Churro Pancakes are prefect for breakfast, brunch, dinner, or even as a snack. They can be frozen well.

Beating 2 eggs whites together is the key to making these pancakes nice and fluffy.

When egg whites are beaten well, it creates a frothy texture that makes these pancakes thick and fluffy.

So this step is a critical stage in making sure your pies are thick and fluffy.

Until they are “soft tops” or become beautiful and fluffy

The “soft peaks” is the stage we want to achieve when you add the whipped egg whites to the plate to lighten it and add more delicate and light results.

Combine the remaining ingredients in a separate mixing bowl

Whisk until all ingredients are incorporated.

Gently fold in egg whites.

Spray a non-stick frying pan with non-stick cooking spray over medium heat.

Scoop pancake batter onto prepared skillet, making 4 inch pancakes using a 1/4 measuring cup.

On medium heat, cook the pancakes until small bubbles begin to form on top of the pies.

About 2 minutes. Flip and cook until lightly golden.

Drizzle top and bottom with cinnamon sugar substitute

CAN THESE BE MADE WITH ALL PURPOSE FLOUR?

The answer is Yes, Just add 1 tsp baking powder along with 1/4 tsp salt to the 2/3 cup all-purpose flour.

HOW DO FREEZE THESE CHURRO PANCAKES?

Place a sheet of parchment paper between each pie and stack together. Place pies in an airtight container or heavy duty freezer bag.

Notes

  • The point value may differ depending on the brand of self-rising flour you use. Gold Medal has fewer points than most self-rising flours and does make these pancakes lower in points.
  • I recommend using a canola oil base non-stick cooking spray. I have noticed that the pancakes will stick sometimes to cooking oils such as coconut oil or sunflower oil.
  • In order to calculate the freestyle smart points on a recipe you have to enter the ingredients in manually (by ingredient) not by the nutritional information in the WW recipe builder-since this recipe contains zero-point items the app doesn’t realize there is zero point items in the recipe and will calculate it based only off the nutritional info which is not accurate.
  • The key to making these pancakes nice and fluffy is beating 2 egg whites together. Therefore this is a critical step to ensure the pancakes turn out thick and fluffy.

How do freeze these Churro Pancakes?

Just place a sheet of parchment or wax paper between each pancake and stack it together and place pancakes inside an air-tight container or heavy-duty freezer bag. Freeze for up to 1 to 2 months for best quality.
