You should easily get 10 slices out of this cake, which means it will work out at 2 syns a slices. Which isn’t bad at all.
Of course you could cut it into fewer slices, but remember to adjust the syn values!
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 Low Syn Banana Bread with Chocolate Chips uses 2 tablespoons of sweetener and is divided into 12 portions. That’s less than quarter a tablespoon per portion, so there’s no need to add any syns on for the sweetener itself.
This recipe contains mashed and cooked banana, which is 4 syns for 100g. Some people choose not to syn banana when it’s used this way, but we have. So the syn value will change depending on the size of the bananas you use.
You can get 12 slices out of this recipe, but if you want bigger slices then don’t forget to adjust the syn value.

What is Sukrin?
Sukrin 1 doesn’t have that strange after taste that a lot of artificial sweeteners do! It also shares the exact same sweetness and weight to sugar – which makes it really easy to substitute in recipes like this Low Syn Banana Bread with Chocolate Chips.
If you are using a powdered sweetener, then please check how it compares to sugar. In some cases you’ll need to use less, as powdered sweeteners weigh less.
That being said you don’t have to use Sukrin – there are lots of other high quality granulated sweeteners available from the supermarket, such as Canderel Sugarly, and Natvia.
