Healthy maple syrup pancakes with warmed pineapple.

I presume this recipe is healthy as it's from a Weight Watchers joiners booklet. I have not rejoined the King of diet groups, but as I managed to lose 2.5 stone last year and keep it off, I'm always on the look out for low fat but tasty recipe. These pancakes with the maple syrup and pineapple remind me of my oaty pancakes with blueberry jam as they were low fat and tasty but with more a summery twist. Perfect for this cold and snowy weather we are experiencing. The pancakes are quick to make, even quicker to cook and taste delicious, the perfect weekend breakfast.
Here is how my maple syrup pancakes with warmed pineapple turned out:

2 medium eggs beaten
175ml skimmed milk

Warm a large non-stick frying pan over a medium heat. When hot add the spread and leave to melt. Add the batter in large spoonfuls to make little pancakes 8cm across. Cook for about 1 minute until bubbles start bursting on the surface, then flip over and cook for a further 30 seconds until both sides are golden. Continue with the remaining mixture until all 12 pancakes are cooked. Set aside in a warm place.
