I've tried making the quark pancakes, which tasted good, but were impossible to even flip because they just fell apart, and the oat and egg pancakes which again taste good but fall apart very easily, and then I discovered this recipe. Using fat-free cottage cheese, egg whites and oats blended together you have a lovely firm pancake which still tastes delicious. I really recommend them for a lovely treat weekend breakfast!
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 ...
Yoghurt coated blueberries
This isn't really a recipe, but an idea for a snack that is so simple it's genius! Dip any fresh fruit into fat free yoghurt and freeze it- voila! A tasty snack to stop you reaching for anything more syn-ful!
The 1 syn jam doughnut
This has to be one of the best ways to use your Healthy Extra B bread- the only syns in this are in the jam, and you really don't need a lot! This is the perfect way to stave off a sweet craving, or give yourself a guilt-free treat. if you use the bread from your Healthy Extra B allowance they are only 1 syn each, or if you have already used your Healthy Extras for the day they are still only 4 syns each! Even if you aren't following Slimming World these are a great way to have a treat ...
I've never really liked coffee or alcohol based desserts, but tiramisu has always been the exception, something about the consistency of the sponge fingers with the creamy, chocolately topping is just so good! This version uses quark instead of cream, and as sponge fingers are pretty low syn you can create a really lovely dessert for just 5.5 syns!
Overnight oats have become a bit of a legend in Slimming World circles, and when I tried them for the first time I could understand why. Layering up and leaving the ingredients overnight allows some of the yoghurt to soak into the oats, and the fruit to infuse with everything without creating the 'soggy' texture of porridge as the oats retain a little of their crunchiness. This is so good that you could probably also pass it off as a pudding! I tend to use frozen berries as they are both ...
Sometimes you just need something a bit different, and I think this banana sushi is a sweet idea to make yourself a plate of something pretty! You could either use the Weight Watchers Love Fibre wraps, white and wholemeal, or you could use a slice of brown bread rolld flat with a rolling pin. There's a lot of scope for using lots of superfree fruit to make up a very pretty plate of food!
