Low Syn Bounty Cake | Slimming World

I am rather partial to a bounty, and anything sweet and coconutty…with chocolate! With the exciting news that the new Hi-Fi bars would be coconut macaroon, and with my usual impatience to try them, I decided that some Low Syn Bounty Cake was in order!

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 👍

Please note:  This recipe originally used Flora Lighter Than Light Spread, however this is no longer available, so we have replaced it with Flora Light. Unfortunately, because of this the Syn value has risen slightly from 2.5 to 3 Syns per portion.

Now this isn’t a cake for every day at 3 syns per slice. But if you’ve got a special occasion and looking to make a lower syn cake than your average victoria sandwich then this is ideal.

It’s rich, moist and totally yummy – no one will believe that this is “diet” food!

If you wanted to reduce the syns a bit, you could leave out the desiccated coconut, though it really does add to the texture and flavour of this cake.

This cake is amazing as it is, but to make it into a desert you could serve it with some sweetened quark, or a fat free coconut yoghurt.

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.

Syn Free Strawberry & Vanilla Waffles

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 Bounty Cake.

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.

They also make alternatives to wheat flour, almond flour, peanut flour and of course Coconut Flour.

Synning the sweetener

As you will probably know Slimming World have 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 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 Bounty Cake uses 6 tablespoons of sweetener and is divided into 16 portions. That’s well less than 1 tablespoon per portion, so there’s no need to add any syns on for the sweetener itself.

  1. This looks amazing!! So happy to have found your page. It makes being on Slimming World just that little bit easier…I’ve got my Sukrin just need to get the coconut flour xx

  2. I love the sound of this and I am desperate to make it – the problem I am having is i CANNOT locate Flora lighter than light, or alternatively Clover Lighter Than Light – I have always used these in the past and nowhere seems to be stocking them atm. Any suggestions are more than welcome!! Thank you

  3. I am having the same problem locating flora lighter than light or the clover lighter than light my area too! Have postponed making cakes whilst I hunt for it so any alternatives would be great.

  4. Hi Ladies,

    I believe the Lighter than Light has been discontinued but the Flora light has the same calorific and nutritional values so shouldn’t affect the syn values. Will change the recipe to reflect this 🙂
