Is it a Tweak?

This recipe uses porridge oats that have been blitzed in a food processor. There have been many discussions on Facebook, as to whether using oats in this way is a tweak.

Whenever we post a recipe we make sure that we supply the correct information regarding syns and tweaks. So in the interests of getting things right I contacted Slimming World directly.

I was told that you do not have to syn oats if you blitz them to use them in this way. There are 2  reasons for this. Firstly, putting the oats in a food processor does not alter the nutritional value. Secondly, as you are using them as you’re HEB the amount you can eat is restricted so there’s very little chance of you over eating them.

Having said that, as with anything that could be considered a possible tweak, if you eat these 1 Syn Chocolate Waffles often and it starts to affect your weight loss, then you should stop using the oats in this way.

Synning the sweetener

This recipe has been amended to take into account the new recommendations about synning sweetener. This will keep it 1 syn. If you want to add more sweetener then you should syn it at 0.5 syns per tablespoon.

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 this 1 Syn Chocolate Waffles now uses 3/4 of a tablespoon of sweetener, so there’s no need to add any syns on for the sweetener itself.

Now that we have cleared up any concerns about ‘tweaking’ we’d better get to the recipe for these 1 Syn Chocolate Waffles Recipe.

You can use a waffle maker for these 1 Syn Chocolate Waffles, if you have one, but we just used one of these heart shaped waffle moulds from Amazon UK.

They’re super easy to use, just spray them with a little Frylight and the waffles should just pop right out.

If you want the waffles a bit crispier then just tip them out of the mould onto the baking tray for the last 5 minutes or so.

Like them a bit more chocolatey? Then just add some extra cocoa powder, or a teaspoon of Chocolate Extract.

You can find Chocolate Extract here on Amazon.

Finally, we need to mention cocoa powder. As with a lot of things different brands of cocoa powder vary quite a bit in syn values.

We used Morrisons own Cocoa Powder which is 0.5 syns per teaspoon. However, some brands, such as Asda Chosen By You or Cadbury’s Bournville are 1 syn per teaspoon. So be sure to check the syn values.

  1. Yes if you read the information above the syns come from coco powder so just one syn for the lot as long as you haven’t had your HE B choice x

    1. Hi Mrs C
      The chocolate extract contains no sugar, so although it doesn’t appear on the app, I’d imagine the syn vale in 2.5mls of the extract would be negligible. Hope that helps.

    1. Hi Claire,

      These should be ok to freeze for around a month. Make sure you put parchment paper between them so they are easy to separate 😊

    1. Hi Marie,

      Yes these should freeze and reheat ok. If you place some baking parchment paper between them before freezing then they will be easier to separate 😊

  2. I make waffles most days and instead of using porridge oats and blitzing, I just use “ready brek”. Still 40g and HeB. Saves time and tastes delicious!

  3. Hi these look amazing! I’m vegetarian so can’t use mullerlight- are there any veggie friendly alternative yoghurts you would suggest instead? Many thanks!

  4. Hi can I use cacao powder instead of cocoa powder and also would choc shot work as well instead of chocolate extract ? Thanks

    1. Hi Sue
      Using Cacao powder should be fine, but you’ll need to check Syn values online compared to Cocoa powder. Choc Shot may not give quite such a chocolatey flavour. Also, the chocolate extract would be free, whereas Choc Shot would need to be Synned at 0.5 Syns per tsp. Hope that helps! 🙂

    1. Hi Sarah
      If you don’t have a food processor, why not try using Ready Brek instead. You can have 40g as an HEB choice, with no need to blitz the oats. Hope that helps!
