As I was browsing through the cake aisle, looking at all the very expensive “diet” branded versions, I suddenly had the inspiration to make these 1.5 Syn Each Snickers Mini Rolls!
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 👍
Not only are they absolutely delish, but they’re low syn, bigger than the shop bought ones and considerably cheaper!
Synning the sweetener
As you will probably know Slimming World have brought out some new recommendations regarding the syn value of granulated sweeteners. Slimming World have confirmed what this change means.
Where there is 1 tbsp or more being used per serving they now recommend members count 0.5 Syn per tbsp. If using smaller amounts, like a pinch or teaspoon, there’s no need to worry about Syns at all.
The recipe for this 1.5 Syn Each Snickers Mini Rolls uses 40g or about 2 and a half tablespoons of Sukrin (but lets call it 3 to be on the safe side) and is divided into 6 portions. That’s half a tablespoon per portion, so there’s no need to add any syns on for the sweetener itself.
Of course if you intend eating lots of these in one go then you should add on the extra syns for the sweetener (which would mean each roll is 2 syns).
When making these, it’s important not to overcook the cake as it’ll end up too crisp to roll – trust me, there are several batches from the development stage that are in the bin!
These 1.5 Syn Each Snickers Mini Rolls also great for the kids lunch boxes, and much better than the sugar filled versions in the shops. They’re very quick to make – the most difficult thing is not to eat them all!

I used a tin that was about 35 x 24 cm for the sponge to make these 1.5 Syn Each Snickers Mini Rolls. You can pick one up a suitable one here on Amazon.
This recipe also uses something called PB2. This is a powdered peanut butter that contains less fat than regular peanut butter.
You can find it on Amazon.
What is Sukrin?
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.
