Synning the sweetener in this Low Syn Apple 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 Low Syn Apple 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.
