WW 0 Point Pancakes #Recipe @PegCochran



Yes, I am still posting WW recipes! I am four pounds (four pounds!) from my goal and seem to be stuck here so you may see a few more WW recipes from me.

These pancakes are delicious and if you are following the WW Freestyle plan, they are 0 points. Just remember--portion control!  Hubby loves these and even my 9 year old granddaughter dubbed them delicious.

They are a bit tricky to flip since there isn't any flour in them, but with some patience and delicacy, it's perfectly possible.  And if you mess one up, you'll still have plenty left to serve for breakfast--or even breakfast for dinner!


Ingredients
2 medium, ripe bananas
3 large eggs, beaten
½ tsp. vanilla extract
¼ tsp. baking powder
1/8 tsp. ground cinnamon
pinch nutmeg

Place 1 ½ bananas, eggs and spices in a food processor (or mix by hand—mashing the bananas first—but the food processor is easier!) 



Process until ingredients are well-blended.



Spray griddle with cooking spray and heat over medium heat.  Be sure it is good and hot before pouring pancakes.

Pour approximately 2 tablespoons of batter for each pancake.   

Pour S-L-O-W-L-Y so batter starts to set as soon as it hits the griddle or it will spread.  Smaller pancakes are easier to flip.



Cook until well done on first side.  It will take longer than making regular pancakes and the pancake may look slightly burned but it’s not.

Flip carefully with a thin spatula and cook the other side.  This side will take less time. 

They are a bit tricky to flip as you will see from my “fail” picture! But with some patience and a bit of finagling, it will work.



Slice remaining half of banana and serve on top of pancakes along with berries and sugar-free syrup if desired.



Amazon Reviewer:  "Peg Cochran creates engaging characters and a wonderful sense of time and place. The mystery is well plotted and full of twists. There’s a little bit of humor, a splash of romance, and great historical details."



An intrepid 1930s Manhattan socialite uncovers deadly secrets during an assignment to the Hamptons in this riveting historical cozy mystery for readers of Victoria Thompson, Anne Perry, and Rhys Bowen.


Westhampton, 1938. To the dismay of her well-to-do family, Elizabeth “Biz” Adams is quickly establishing herself as a seasoned photographer over at the Daily Trumpet. Growing more confident in her decision to pursue a career, Elizabeth is thrilled when she and her reporter sidekick, Ralph Kaminsky, are sent to Long Island to cover the story of a young maid found dead in one of the glamourous summer homes in the devastating aftermath of the Great New England Hurricane—also known as the Long Island Express.

At first it’s assumed that the young woman was caught in the terrible storm, but when a suspicious wound is found on the side of her head, the police suspect murder. The maid’s death becomes even more tragic when it’s discovered she was pregnant, and with Elizabeth and Kaminsky at the scene of the crime, the Daily Trumpet scoops all the other papers in town.

The young woman’s boyfriend emerges as the likeliest suspect. But as Elizabeth follows the story, she begins to wonder whether someone in the household of the maid’s employers might be responsible—someone who’ll stop at nothing to keep the truth about the baby’s paternity hidden.


COMING DECEMBER 3


New York City, 1939. A rising star at the Daily Trumpet, Elizabeth “Biz” Adams has been sent to the World’s Fair—billed as the “World of Tomorrow,” a look toward a brighter future even as the drumbeats of war grow louder—to cover a robbery. What she stumbles upon instead is a dead woman, dumped into the Aquacade’s pool with a nylon stocking wrapped around her neck.

Elizabeth snaps a photo as the police arrest Joey Dorman, a gentle young hot dog vendor who made no secret of his obsession with the murder victim. Even though she’s thrilled that her photo makes the front page, the fear and confusion evident on Joey’s face are haunting. So Elizabeth vows to prove his innocence—or his guilt—with her partner at the Daily Trumpet, Ralph Kaminsky. Meanwhile, her romance with Detective Sal Marino is heating up, and Elizabeth is more determined than ever to follow her heart.

But when Kaminsky’s efforts to expose the real killer land him in the hospital, Elizabeth is forced to continue the investigation on her own. And as she tries to narrow down the long list of suspects, she discovers a dark secret running through the Fair—a secret some would kill to protect.
