1 Syn Chocolate Baileys Truffles | Slimming World

These 1 Syn Chocolate Baileys Truffles are the perfect sweet treat for the festive period!



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 👍

If there’s one drink that screams Christmas, it’s Baileys. But as it’s quite high in syns, I wasn’t sure if I was going to be able to enjoy my usual tipple over the festive season whilst staying on plan. These little truffles are the perfect little boozy hit!


Chestnut puree has been something of a revelation to my Christmas baking so far this year. You should be able to find it in most supermarkets. It’s so versatile and low in syns – try these Low Syn Chestnut and Chocolate Tarts.

Chocolate essence or flavouring is a really good way of boosting the chocolately flavour whilst avoiding the added syns of cocoa powder. If you can’t find any in your local supermarket, you can pick some up on Amazon.

These 1 syn Chocolate Baileys Truffles are a great way to stay on plan this Christmas while avoiding all the high syn chocolate goodies!


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 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 these 1 Syn Chocolate Baileys Truffles uses 3 tablespoons of sweetener and is divided into 24 truffles. That’s 1 tablespoon per 8 truffles, so unless you intend eating more than 8 of these there’s no need to add any syns on for the sweetener itself. Otherwise, you would have to add an extra half a syn on for every 8 truffles.

    1. Hey sandra, you can get it in the gourmet shop in rathgar in dublin and i imagine you could get it in fallon and byrne too. It comes in a tin so you could probably buy it online no bother!

  1. I couldn’t get almond flour so replaced with Sukrin peanut flour, worked well. Also for a change used options salted caramel instead of cocoa so not as bitter and only 3 syns for 2 sachets needed rather than 6 syns for cocoa.

    1. Hi Kafe
      These truffles would keep for 2-3 days in the fridge. We’e never tried freezing them, so we haven’t given this recipe a freezer symbol. Hope that helps. 🙂

  2. what could I use instead of almond flour? can’t find the suit in stuff except online! I don’t like peanuts and I’m not keen on coconut. could you use ground almonds? or plain flour and syn it?

    1. Hi Amy
      You could choose ground almonds, but they will be significantly higher in Syns. The almond flour is cold pressed, which reduces the amount of fat considerably. We buy it online, too! This recipe has only been tested using the almond flour, so other flours might not work as well.
      Thanks for getting in touch! 🙂

  3. Hi
    I made using coconut flour, i also used natvia sweetner? Maybe this was a mistake, abit crunchy on taste maybe. Have frozen them so see what happens when tasted. Kate

    1. Hi Kate
      You might find that the mixture is drier, as coconut flour is more absorbent and will affect the finished flavour and texture. Hope that helps. 🙂
