These 1 Syn Mini Bread and Butter Puddings are the perfect party food to satisfy those sweet cravings when you’re following a weightloss plan like Slimming World or Weight Watchers. But before we get to the recipe just a quick word about sweeteners.
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 Mini Bread and Butter Puddings uses 3 tablespoons of sweetener and is divided into 12 portions. That’s about quarter of a tablespoon per portion, so there’s no need to add any syns on for the sweetener itself.
So, back to the 1 Syn Mini Bread and Butter Puddings
Bread and butter pudding has long been a favourite in our house, but yet again, the traditional recipe isn’t very Slimming World friendly at all. So we thought we’d try and a low syn bite size version.
They have everything you would expect from a bread and butter pudding. Bread, fruit, vanilla custard. Everything except the syns!
This is how we calculated the syns for these 1 Syn Mini Bread and Butter Puddings
This recipe includes wholemeal bread and milk, but rather than using up part of your Healthy Extras we’ve decided to keep it simple and just syn it.
12 discs of wholemeal bread at 2mm is approx 45g – 4.5 syns (we’re working on the proviso that 60g of wholemeal bread = 6 syns) Also, don’t forget different brands may vary in weight. To make sure we get the correct weight we always weigh the bread after we’ve cut out the circles.
25ml of Skimmed Milk is 0.5 syns
20g of Sultanas equals 3 syns
This totals 8 syns for the whole lot, but don’t forget we need to round up syn values.
