Delicious banana blueberry pancakes (6 ingredient) are made with NO flour, have GREAT flavor and ZERO points, if using the Weight Watchers Freestyle plan.
Do you enjoy pancakes? I sure do, but because they pack quite a calorie punch, I typically may only indulge in them about once a month or so. Even though I LOVE them, I’ve been known to refer to them as “gut bombs”!
Recently I made some banana blueberry pancakes using ingredients that count as ZERO points on the Weight Watchers Freestyle eating plan. Basically the Freestyle plan includes certain foods (about 200) that are tracked as zero point foods in an effort to help you focus on this food list (to assist in making wiser food selection choices).
My Inspiration For Making These “Flourless” Banana Blueberry Pancakes
I decided to try and make some pancakes using only those ingredients found on the Freestyle zero points list, and see how they turned out. Can you tell I was craving pancakes? So, into the kitchen I went to experiment.
My goal was to NOT use flour (not on the “list”), and knew it could work, because I had made peanut butter cookies this way (without flour) before, and they were fantastic! I decided to make banana blueberry pancakes, and use banana and eggs as the base for the pancake batter. And THAT is how I came up with this pancake recipe! It was EASY, and the pancakes tasted amazing!

How To Make WW Freestyle Banana Blueberry Pancakes
Place a large ripe banana (they’re sweeter), two eggs, cinnamon, baking powder, and vanilla extract into a medium sized mixing bowl.
Use an electric mixer to fully blend these ingredients together. NOTE: The mixture will be thinner than if you were using a commercially prepared pancake mix with flour.
Cook The Pancakes
Spray an electric griddle (or large skillet) with non-stick baking spray (or lightly brush with oil). Heat the griddle on a medium-high heat.
Once the griddle is hot, carefully pour or ladle out the batter into 5 small pancakes. Each of the banana blueberry pancakes was about 4 inches in diameter. I used a large measuring cup with a pour spout to do this, but a soup ladle will also do the trick!
As soon as you have the pancakes on the hot grill, place the blueberries onto the pancakes. Once bubbles have formed over the surface of the pancakes, and they are nice and brown underneath, carefully turn the pancakes to the other side using a spatula.
NOTE: Be very careful when turning pancakes. The batter is thin, and since they are studded with the weight of the blueberries, you don’t want to tear the pancakes!
The photo below is what the banana blueberry pancakes looked like right after I flipped them to the other side. Nice and golden brown!
Continue to cook the pancakes until the other side is golden brown as well, and the center of the pancake is firm (not too soft and mushy). The pancakes are now done, and are ready to serve!
Serve The Banana Blueberry Pancakes
Transfer the pancakes to a plate. Now, the pancakes DO have calories (just over 300), but if you are on the Weight Watchers Freestyle plan, pig out! 5 of these pancakes are zero points! If not on Freestyle plan, simply enjoy them all, or split them with someone you love!
I garnished the pancakes with additional blueberries and several banana slices to make it “look pretty”, and served this dish. The blueberries inside the pancakes are loaded with juice and flavor, so you can eat the pancakes just like this OR you can add just one more “garnish”!
Other Optional Toppings For The Banana Blueberry Pancakes
I lightly dusted the banana blueberry pancakes with 1/2 of a teaspoon of sifted powdered sugar (for the photo, of course!). How much or little you use is your choice (and extra calories).
You can also top these pancakes with traditional pancake syrup OR sugar-free pancake syrup (to stick with the plan), or just top them with a dollop of whipped cream. Again, these toppings have more calories (and points values), but eat them however you like ’em!
The banana blueberry pancakes are light in texture, popping with big, juicy blueberries, and have a wonderful flavor! WooHoo! I really hope you will give these a try, and trust you will enjoy them, too! Have a great day!

- 1 large banana
- 2 large eggs
- 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
- 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
- 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1/2 cup blueberries (approximate)
- non-stick spray or vegetable oil
Place a ripe banana (they are sweeter), two eggs, cinnamon, baking powder, and vanilla into a large mixing bowl. Use an electric mixer to fully blend these ingredients. NOTE: The mixture will be thinner than if you were using a commercially prepared pancake mix with flour in it.
Spray an electric griddle (or large skillet) with non-stick baking spray (or lightly brush with oil). Heat the griddle on a medium-high heat. Once griddle is hot, carefully pour or ladle out batter into 5 pancakes (about 4" each in diameter).
As soon as all pancakes are on grill, place blueberries onto pancakes. Once bubbles have formed on pancake surface, and they are nice and brown underneath, carefully turn the pancakes to the other side using a spatula. NOTE: Be very careful when turning. The batter is thin, and since they are studded with the weight of the blueberries, you don't want to tear the pancakes! Continue to cook the pancakes until the other side is golden brown as well, and the center of the pancake is firm.
Once done cooking, transfer pancakes to a plate. Garnish with additional banana slices and blueberries. Additional garnishes can include powdered sugar, whipped cream, regular or sugar-free pancake syrup, etc. (these calories are not included in calorie count!). Enjoy!
One serving is 5 small pancakes! Caloric Calculation was made without including optional garnishes. Wt. Watchers zero points were calculated without any garnishes except for additional blueberries and banana slices.
