Sticky toffee pudding mug cake
This mug cake produces a lovely, light sponge. Using date nectar rather than sugar, not only is it healthier, but it has a gorgeous sticky toffee flavour. I use Beloved date nectar click here which is widely available in the supermarkets.
Black bean brownies
Months ago I saw a recipe for black bean brownies and was intrigued about what they would be like so I finally gave them a go! Black beans are high in protein and fibre and very good for you, and you would never know once the brownies are cooked that they are in there! After speaking to my consultant, I decided to syn the black beans as if they were flour, as this could be classed as a tweak, so the syns in the recipe reflect this and do not count the beans as free.
Next time I do these ...
Blueberry lemon drizzle slice
I was on holiday in Skye 3 years ago, and there was a tiny little bakery that used to cook these amazing fresh cakes every day- one of the ones I really remembered was a lemon blueberry drizzle slice and this was what I was trying to recreate here. Not a patch on theirs, but this ones tastes good, is satisfying to eat and makes you feel like you've had a cake without using up all your syns in one go!
These jaffa cakes use oats in the base, so if you want to make them really low syn then you can count them towards your HEB. If you are fully synning them they are 2.5 syns each, which is actually the same as a bought jaffa cake, but these guys are bigger and more satisfying (and contain much more goodness and less sugar!).
Peanut butter oatcakes
This is one of my favourite breakfasts on a day when I want something warm, filling and to fulfil a little bit of a sweet craving. The powdered peanut butter is a brilliant way to make these taste amazing without adding lots of syns Find it here on Amazon.
Use the oats as youtr HEB, and a dash of milk from your HEA to keep these super low syn. I like mine spread with a low syn chocolate spread (I love this one from Waitrose: Seriously chocolatey chocolate spread) which is 3 syns per ...
Melting middle peanut butter cakes
These are a very satisfying sweet treat and perfect if you feel like you are about to fall off the bandwagon and scoff a doughnut! Don't do it! Make these! They are 6 syns in total (using your healthy extra b portion of oats) but really worth it. I like them for breakfast, but then I have a very sweet tooth, but they'd be a lovely pudding if you haven't used your HEB for the day!
I got my powdered peanut butter from Sainsburys (PBGit, £4), and previously I have used Hale's Natural ...
Strawberry baked oatcakes
Breakfast is definitely the meal that I struggle with most on Slimming World, I always used to just miss it out, but that's not really an option now as I know I need to keep my metabolism going, and eat properly if I want to have effective weight loss. These oatcakes were just a little experiment as to whether I could make a nice little cake without using any high syn flour, and I think they worked nicely. They have quite a moist consistency, so I think they would definitely be better eaten ...
This recipe was from the Slimming World website and it's a lovely recipe- no hassle at all to do, but with great results. It's particularly lovely while still warm, and if you have a few syns spare, maybe spread with a teaspoon of butter!
These Rolo muffins have a lovely little treat in the middle- a gooey, melted rolo. At 2.5 syns each they are a guilt-free indulgence. We all know that a 'real' cake is going to taste better, but if you want a cake experience without synning too much then these are worth a try!
Slimmer’s chocmallow doughnut
These bad-boys have been by far the most popular post so far on my Facebook page, from hundreds of recipes! The beauty is that they are very low syn, but really do taste good enough that you feel like you are eating something really naughty! They are only 3 syns each (if you are using the wholemeal bread from your healthy extra b allowance). If you have a sweet tooth give them a go! Although these look naughty, they really aren't anywhere near as bad as a real doughnut, and are a great way ...
