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!
For the full list of ingredients and comprehensive instructions, please see the recipe card at the end of this post. Before you scroll, there’s important stuff in the blurb 👍
This week The Great British Bake Off challenged the bakers to make biscuits, Viennese Whirls and build a structure out of biscuits.
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)
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)
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?
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.
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.
