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.
Caramelised raspberry baked oats
I've just discovered date nectar, and this one by Beloved gives a lovely natural alternative to using sugar or honey as a sweetener. For everyday baked oats I keep the syns low by using sweetener, but as a treat (3 syns for a tablespoon of date nectar) these baked oats are gorgeous and you don't need anything alongside them to sweeten them up! The top turns out caramelised and crispy for a really indulgent seeming breakfast!
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 ...
Big mama 1 syn pancake
I keep experimenting with different pancake recipes for my Slimming World breakfasts, and this one was a good'un. I used 1 dessert spoon full of flour in the mix just to give it a bit of body to make it easy to turn in the pan, as often they fall apart when you tried to turn them. This is super filling so if you really want to avoid mid-morning munchies it's a winner. Serve with any fresh fruit, and I served mine with Choc Shot from Sweet Freedom, but I'm sure that you could also use a nice ...
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 ...
Sugar-free jelly, and gelatine make Haribo style sweets which are very low syn. I couldn't resist buying these lego style moulds to make some Slimming World sweets! It's a nice easy way to have some 'sweets' without piling up the syns and they are fun to make and taste lovely (memories of being a kid and eating the jelly cubes before they were made into jelly!). Lego jelly moulds are £7.99 on Amazon (if you sign up to a 30 day free trial of Amazon Prime it's free delivery too Amazon ...
