Quark Pancakes

When I started Slimming World back in October last year, I never thought I would still be sticking to diet now nearly 9 months later! So far I have lost 2 stone 4.5lbs, which for Mrs Sweet-tooth over here, I’m really surprised to have lost so much. I even had a few month break from April to June when I hit a bit of a wall and couldn’t budge any more weight.

I rejoined group earlier this month (dragging some friends along with me this time) and I’m really enjoying being back in a group support system. In a way it shames me into not eating all the crap in the house because I’ll have to justify it to a lot of other women who are supporting me along the way.

I’ve had a bad week this week for food; being sent away for a work conference and networking event, meant lots of free biscuits and alcohol…meant the syns added up! Now with just 2 days until weigh in and home alone the pressure to eat healthily is hard!

So today, sat in my flat alone I decided to try out some of the syn free recipes on the website. Below is just one of the recipes you can try out and it only needs 3 ingredients!

You will need:

  • 2 tbsp of Quark
  • 2 tsp of sweetener
  • 1 egg


  1. Whisk the egg and mix it into 1 tbsp of Quark, you may want to stir the quark first without the egg as it can start quite thick! Stir together with 1 tsp of sweetener to make a pancake batter.
  2. Stir the remaining quark and sweetener together to make an alternative to cream.
  3. Cook the batter as you would a normal pancake over a high heat for a few minutes.
  4. Serve together with fruit to be even healthier!

For those that have a real sweet tooth why not also try my 3 ingredient, virtually low syn chocolate cake too. You won’t be disappointed!

    Glad you’re happier now that you’re back in a support system, it’s always nice to feel part of a group and like you’re not going through something alone. Congrats on the weight loss too!

    Hi I know this is an old post but could you freeze these?

    Hmm good question – I doubt it as I don’t think Quark is freezable

    Just discovered your blog and always looking for SW recipes. These look great, I have a quick question, the remaining quark and sweetener that you mix together – does that go in the mixture or is it to serve with?

    Aww thank you – need to get my bum in gear and write up some more of my recent ones! Just lost another 3 lbs this week so in a happy SW place right now! The extra bits makes a really nice cream substitute to go along side the pancakes – some people find it still a bit cheesy (it is quark after all) but I love it, and use enough sweetener and you won’t taste it 🙂

    The batter too thin and runny, the pancake came out very thin and flimsy! Added a tablespoon or two of Spelt flour, this time they came out looking like pancakes!

    Hi Emma
    Tried this but it falls apart when I try to flip them on the pan. Should the mix be left to settle or can it be used immediately
    Where am I going wrong

    Hi Eoin, I’m not sure I’m afraid. It should flip ok – maybe not like an ordinary pancake as they are quite delicate, but shouldn’t fall apart too much!

    The mixture should be ready to use immediately, shouldn’t have to let it sit.

    Maybe try cooking on a lower heat for a longer time and then try again?
