Synning the sweetener in this Low Syn Apple & Blackberry Crumble
As you will probably know, Slimming World brought out some new recommendations regarding the syn value of granulated sweeteners. This means that:
Where there is 1 tbsp or more being used per serving they recommend you 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 Low Syn Apple & Blackberry Crumble uses 3 tablespoons of sweetener and is divided into 4 portions. That’s a lot less than a tablespoon per portion, so there’s no need to add add any Syns on for the sweetener itself.
