For the full list of ingredients and comprehensive instructions, please see the recipe card at the end of this post. Before you scroll, there’s important stuff in the blurb 👍

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?

We use Sukrin 1 which is an all-natural granulated stevia sweetener alternative to sugar with zero calories. You can grab Sukrin 1 over onAmazon UK.

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.

  1. Easy to make. I made mine with another sweetener as I only have Sukrin Gold and the Icing Sugar.
    I also omitted the chocolate drops – very light consistency- tasty.
    Nice with a brew!

  2. Made this last week hoping I’d get a few days from it. No such luck family had it gone within an hour.

    Easy to make and tasty.

  3. Mine sinks and is gooey inside but it’s been cooked for longer then recommended and starts to catch on top any ideas what we are doing wrong?

    1. Hi Sarah,
      According to Slimming World all fruit when pureed or cooked should be synned. The thinking is that when a fruit is pureed or cooked it is easier to overeat and could jeopardize weight loss

  4. Hey just made this to take with me to the cinema to watch the new fifty shades, what I learnt was that it is a lovely fluffy consistancy but needs a lot more sweetener. I added a lot of mixed spice and actually what resulted was what I think would be a great base for a carrot cake! So I am going to try grating carrot into it when I made it next. Im also going to try with more bannana. Thank you for the recipe, I think I will be playing with it to make lots of yummy treats 🍰😘

  5. Love this cake, easy to make and I don’t like bananas but for someone like me who doesn’t like bananas actually likes it. In my house it will be gone by tomorrow lol as my partner loves bananas and cakes like these. I would definitely be making it again. 🙂

    1. Hi Sam
      We’ve not tried freezing it (it never last long enough!) but it’s quite a moist cake so it may not hold up to freezing very well.

    1. Hi Dawn
      No you can’t make this without separating the eggs. As there isn’t an awful lot of flour in this recipe the whisked egg whites are what gives the cake body and allows it to rise

  6. Hi – just made this and it’s yummy – added more sweetener and divided mixture into to tins – added toffee muller light yoghurt and caramel essence to one – a bit gooey but tastes amazing . How many slices am I supposed to get out of it though ? 😳

    1. Hi Helen
      It’s mentioned in the recipe that you get 12 pieces in total, but if you want bigger slices then adjust the syns accordingly

  7. Made mine in a muffin tray – same timing and temp.
    Made 12 individual portions around 1.5 – 2 syns.
    Lovely

    1. Hi Diane, thanks for your message. We obviously try to keep the Syn values as low as possible, without compromising taste, which is why we used Sukrin products in this recipe.

    1. Hi Vicky
      Different sweeteners vary in texture and sweetness, so it may depend on which brand you are using. Sukrin is exactly the same as sugar in texture, weight and sweetness so it’s quite easy to use. Most sweetener brands have conversion info on their websites so it may be worth checking whichever one you are using.

    1. Hi Carole
      We use a fan oven too! You could try reducing the temperature slightly next time. Some ovens are ‘faster’ and so dishes will cook quicker than the recipe states. Hope that helps.

    1. Hi Julie
      You’d need to experiment with the amounts, as coconut flour is much more absorbent than the self-raising flour we’ve used. The recipe will need less coconut flour than S.R.Flour, which might affect the texture and consistency of the finished cake. Hope that helps.

    1. Hi Vikki
      You need to whisk the egg whites until they’re really stiff, then fold in gently so you don’t knock the air out. The cake will sink if you take it out of the oven too soon, so you could try cooking for a bit longer. Hope that helps.
