1.5 Syn Gingerbread Bites | Slimming World

Gingerbread is in my opinion one of those things that is quite difficult to convert into a low syn Slimming World friendly recipe. Having said that, and after a few attempts, these 1.5 Syn Gingerbread Bites are a pretty good effort!

This week The Great British Bake Off challenged the bakers to make biscuits, Viennese Whirls and build a structure out of biscuits.

1.5 Syn Gingerbread Bites

Now, Viennese whirls are pretty much impossible to make a Slimming World friendly version. We know, we’ve tried on more than one occasion without successs!! So if you really want one then just go buy one and take the syn hit (between 7 and 8.5 syns each i believe)

1.5 Syn Gingerbread Bites

We also didn’t think making an entire Gingerbread House would be a good idea while we’re counting the syns. So we came up with these 1.5 Syn Gingerbread Bites.

We’ve topped ours with a drizzle of Sukrin Icing, but you can use normal icing (don’t forget to count the syns!) Or you could just dust them with some Sukrin Icing or normal icing sugar (again check the syn value for the normal icing sugar)

I used a 5cm cutter, which gave me 28 biscuits. If you don’t have a cutter you can pick a set up on Amazon really cheaply.

When you’ve made these 1.5 Syn Gingerbread Bites you should store them in an airtight containers (if they last that long!)

What is Sukrin?

We use Sukrin Gold which is an all-natural granulated stevia sweetener alternative to brown sugar with zero calories. You can grab Sukrin Gold over on Amazon UK.

Sukrin Gold doesn’t have that strange after taste that a lot of artificial sweeteners do! It also shares the exact same sweetness and weight to sugar – which makes it really easy to substitute in recipes like this 1.5 Syn Gingerbread Bites.

We also use Sukrin Icing which is an all-natural granulated stevia sweetener alternative to icing sugar with zero calories. You can also grab Sukrin Icing over on Amazon UK.

If you are using a powdered sweetener, then please check how it compares to sugar. In some cases you’ll need to use less, as powdered sweeteners weigh less.

That being said you don’t have to use Sukrin – there are lots of other high quality granulated sweeteners available from the supermarket, such as Canderel Sugarly, and Natvia.

Whenever we need to replace oil in cooking we use Frylight. Perfect for everyday frying and cooking, it delivers exactly one calorie per spray, which makes it Syn free! The Coconut or Rapeseed Oil flavours are ideal for this 1.5 Syn Gingerbread Bites recipe.

  1. These look great! Just made the jaffa cakes using the recipe shared last week – they were a great success, so these ginger biscuits might just be my next attempt! Very impressed with the Sukrin Gold – expensive but worth it.

    1. Hi Dee,
      We love Sukrin Gold. It really does look, feel and taste like brown sugar, and we think it’s worth paying that bit extra too.

  2. Just checked Amazon for the Sukrin Gold….OMG!!! Is that really the price…. £46 for 500g on the link it took me too. No way is that value for money.

    1. Hi Sandra,

      No it isn’t! There’s an extreme shortage of Gold, which has driven up prices – hopefully it’ll be back in stock very soon 🙂

  3. Love PON, so good for people who love to cook, but want to stick to the plan. One question on the recipe, you’ve syned the flour, but what about the flora light?

  4. How much sweetener would you use if not using sukrin gold? Can’t get to the shop to get any and need to maker this evening

  5. I’ve just made these for the second time. The first time I couldn’t get Sukrin Gold so used a white sweetener. They tasted lovely but came out speckled black. This time I used the Sukrin Gold (thinking the speckles had been the other sweetener burning) but they are still speckled! The ones in the pic above are a consistent golden brown colour… Any suggestions where I’m going wrong?

  6. I’m going to make these, but I couldn’t get the sukrin icing sugar so I got silver spoons instead, does anyone know what the syn value would be? Also will it be the same if I use gingerbread cut outs instead of cookie ones?

    1. Hi Shauna
      You’d need to check the Syn value of Silver Spoon Icing Sugar on the Slimming World website.
      You can use any shape cookie cutters, but you will have to divide the total Syns for the recipe by the number of biscuits you make. Hope that makes sense. 🙂

  7. My husband made this recipe at the weekend and all looked good but tasted sickly sweet. He added 60g of splendid granulated sweetener. Reading on am I right in thinking he should have only added 12g. It says one spoon of sweetener (0.5g) is equal to 1 spoon of sugar (5g). Can someone correct me if I am wrong please.

    1. Hi Angela
      We always recommend a granulated sweetener that weighs 1:1 with sugar, so that the weight/volume is the same. The brands we recommend, Sukrin, Canderel Sugarly and Natvia are our favourites, as they have the same sweetness as sugar. These are the best ones to use for baking, and are tried and tested in our recipes. 🙂
