Synning the sweetener in this Low Syn Apple Crumble

As you will probably know last year 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.

  1. Wow now that’s the kind of pudding to keep me happy, just need some SW custard to go with it, anything in the making?

    1. Hi Sam
      So glad you’re happy with the pudding! As for the custard, we’re always coming up with new recipes, so you never know! 😉

    1. Hi Lucy
      We haven’t tried freezing this recipe, but there’s no reason why it wouldn’t work. You would need to defrost from frozen before reheating in the oven.

    1. Hi Linda
      You could use coconut flour, but you may need to experiment a little as coconut flour is more absorbent than regular flour, so you would probably need to use less.

    1. Hi Nadine
      You can use eating apples, but they’ll be slightly higher in Syns. (100g cooked/pureed cooking apple is 1.5 Syns, 100g cooked/pureed eating apple is 2.5 Syns.)

    1. Hi Jessica
      All fruit has to be synned when cooked or pureed. (Slimming World rules.)
      Cooking apples are 1.5 Syns per 100g. The recipe uses 200g apples, which is 3 Syns.

    1. Hi Nicola
      The combination of flour and reduced fat margarine gives the traditional, buttery crumble topping. If you wanted to use 40g of oats (as your HEB) you’d need to adjust the Syn value accordingly.

  2. I tried this recipe this evening and found the mixture had too much moisture to be breadcrumbs so just clumped together ☹ will try again tomorrow! Would it be ok to use the cooked Apple as part of your HEXB?

    1. Hi Jenna
      You need to use chilled margarine and keep rubbing in to the flour until fully incorporated, which should give you a breadcrumb texture.
      The recipe uses 200g apples, the HEB amounts are 375g for cooking apple or 250g for eating apple when pureed or cooked. If you can do the maths to make it part of your HEB then why not?! We just found it easier to Syn it, as it’s pretty low in Syns and you can save your HEB for something else. 🙂

  3. This so then second time I’m making it. Just also read that cooking apples are lower syns value. Learn something new every day.
    I loved it. My fiends hubby called it. Apple crumb! But it’s delicious.

    1. Hi Vivienne
      Yes, as I’ve mentioned in previous answers, the Syn value of cooking apples is lower than eating apples. Glad you enjoyed the recipe!
