    1. Hi Has
      SW guidelines for sweetener are as follows;-

      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 these Low Syn Chocolate Brownies uses 4 tablespoons of sweetener and is divided into 16 portions.

      That’s way less than one tablespoon per portion, so there’s no need to add any syns on for the sweetener itself.

      You’ll need to use a granulated, rather than powdered sweetener, so that is weighs like for like with real sugar. We like several brands of sweetener, including Sukrin, Canderel Sugarly (blue jar), or Natvia. All would work well in this recipe.

    1. Hi Shell
      Choc Shot is a liquid hot chocolate drink. It comes in a squeezy bottle. It’s a chocolate syrup, used to make hot chocolate, but can also be used as a cooking ingredient. You’ll find it on the hot drinks aisle of most large supermarkets.

  2. Hi could you please give me the quantity ammounts of ingredients please for these brownies . Thank you Sharon

    1. Hi Sharon
      You’re already on the recipe page! Have a read through the blurb at the top of the page and then scroll down for the recipe card and method. 🙂

    1. Hi Meera
      You should be able to use your usual egg replacer in this recipe. Holland and Barratt sell a good one called Orgran No Egg, which has excellent reviews online. It’s also available on Amazon.

    1. Hi Rachel
      Cocoa powder gives a really intense chocolate flavour, but Options won’t give the same depth of flavour/richness. The overall saving would be 1 Syn, but each brownie would still need to be rounded up to 2.5 Syns, so I’d stick to cocoa powder!

  3. Love these Brownies. I found that if you sieve your floor baking powder and coco and use an electric whisk they come out lovely and fluffy. Also definately use a 5inch x5 inch tin. Put up a photo on post and so far 362 likes😊😊😊😊😊.
    Thank you for solving my chocolate fix 😘

    1. Thank you!!!!! I’m going to be making these next week and I’ve been worried about what size tin to buy!!! 5”x5” I’m presuming it’s not a special size and I can get it anywhere!!! X

    1. Hi Susie
      Granulated sweetener is available from supermarkets, usually on the hot drinks or baking aisle. They are a low calorie options to reduce Syns. We recommend Sukrin, Canderel Sugarly or Natvia as three good options. You could use sugar, but you would need to count the Syns accordingly. 🙂

    1. Hi Abi
      If you check the recipe card, we state the Syn values for each ingredient. This makes it easier to work out new values if you switch any of the ingredients. The choc chips are 6.5 Syns, so if you leave them out, it will reduce the Syn value for each Brownie. 🙂

    1. Hi Vicky
      The Choc Shot is mainly used to intensify the chocolate flavour, whilst keeping the Syns low. You could add a little extra cocoa powder, but remember to count the extra Syns. 🙂

    1. Hi Helen
      You could try almond flour, but it doesn’t have a raising agent, so will affect the overall texture of the finished Brownies. If you do use almond flour, make sure you double check Syn values. 🙂

  4. Hi, if i decided not to add choc chips how many syns would it make each, do you calculate by adding up all syns & dividing by portion? Thanks 🙂

    1. Hi Tina
      Yes, that’s exactly what we do! The value of the chocolate chips is listed on the recipe card. If you don’t use the chocolate chips, subtract that from the total number of Syns, then divide your new total by the number of portions. 🙂

    1. Hi Isobell
      I’m sure you could add a little coffee, or a coffee extract, to give a coffee flavour to the brownies. Be careful not to add too much, as this might affect the texture of the finished brownies. 🙂

  5. These gave me the perfect chocolaty treat over Easter! So, quick and easy to make and very light and tasty. I used Sweet Freedom Fruit Syrup as sweetener as I prefer to use that instead of a granulated sweetener. I took a few to my SW weigh in evening and they were a big hit! I’m making another batch tomorrow and will add some raspberries. Thanks PON for yet another wonderful, winning recipe!

  6. Hi thank you for the receipe I loved the look of these brownies and although I do not bake often I thought even I could try this, and feed my chocolate craving!! The texture was perfect I put it in the pre warmed oven at gas mark 3 in a 8”x 8” tin for 17 mins, took it out and was so sad. It had not raised as high as the ones in the pictures ( yes I definitely used self raising flour and baking powder) and it did not have the chocolately taste I had hoped for. Going to try it again using Claire’s advice sieving the flour, coco powder and baking powder with the electric whisk and using a smaller tin 5” x 5” and hopefully get the results everyone has mentioned. Wish me luck.

    1. Hi Ang
      A smaller tin will give you a deeper brownie. You could try adding some chocolate extract or cocoa extract, available from Asda, Waitrose, Lakeland and Amazon. This will intensify the chocolate flavour. Enjoy!

  7. Hi if i follow recipe will they come out as rich and chocolatey as pic . I dont want to be dissapointed as i am pretty good at cake making ☺

    1. Hi Elaine
      We test and taste the recipes several times whilst in production. The photograph shows the results we got using the ingredients and method listed in the recipe.

  8. Hiya, I would love to make these tomorrow, however I’m slightly confused as it states each brownie is 2.5 syns each, but then why are there syn values next to the ingredient names? Many thanks in advance!

    1. Hi Izzie
      There are Syn values shown next to each ingredient so that if you use a different brand, or switch an ingredient, you can recalculate the Syns.
      Total value is 37 Syns for all the ingredients, divided by 16 portions works out at 2.3125 Syns each, but we always round up to protect losses. 🙂

  9. I have made these several times and they’re absolutely yummy. Good for snacking and heitting that sweet spot. Thanks a lot. Being greedy, I tend to cut them in to tinier pieces so I get 1.5 or 1 syn per brownie lol.

    Can I ask why the sweetener isn’t synned please.

    1. Hi Eni
      Slimming World guidelines state that sweetener should be Synned if you’re using a tablespoon or more per serving. As this recipe makes 16 servings, and uses 4 tbsp sweetener, that’s less than 1/4 tbsp per Brownie, so no need to Syn it. 🙂

  10. I’ve now tried this twice but I keep getting the texture of a cleaning sponge rather than light and fluffy. It’s more sense and spongy. Don’t now is this is just how it is or am I doing something wrong.

    1. Hi Nick
      Brownies aren’t generally fluffy and light, these should be fairly dense in texture. Make sure you’re using a tin with the right dimensions as otherwise the mixture will be less deep when it goes into the oven. It’s also important to preheat the oven before cooking – it needs to be up to temperature or it won’t cook properly. The recipe was tried and tested several times prior to publishing, so should turn out fine as long as you’ve used the info given on the recipe card. Good luck! 🙂

  11. Made these but used bun tins instead of a cake tin. I got 24 but I forgot to add the choc chips before cooking….
    I am going to add some quark and sprinkle the chips on that.
    I used choc options and a little water instead of choc shot.
    They smell divine.

  12. Thank you for sharing the recipe
    and I am going to add some quark and sprinkle the chips on that.
    I used choc options and a little water instead of choc shot.
    They smell divine. and also eats good.

    1. Hi Vicky
      It’s really important not to over-mix the ingredients as this can knock the air out. Check that the tine is the correct size too. Make sure the oven is preheated and up to temperature before you pop the brownie mix in to cook. Try to avoid opening the oven until at least 2/3 of the way through cooking time.
      You could also try whisking the egg whites separately and folding them into the mixture to introduce as much air as possible. Hope that helps. 🙂

  13. Hi, Can I ask how do you count the syns per portion? In the ingredients is 21 syns all together so if it is for 16 portion should’ve that been 1.3 syns per portin? I’m new to slimming world so apologies if there is anything else I might have missed. Thanks x

    1. Hi Luci,
      If you scroll to the recipe card, you’ll see that we’ve given individual Syn values for each ingredient. They add up to 37 Syns in total. When divided between 16 servings, that works out at 2.3125 Syns each. We always round up to protect weight losses, so the brownies have a Syn value of 2.5 Syns each. 🙂

  14. Hi, I made these and loved them! Stored them in an air tight container but they started to go mouldy after only a couple of days! Can I ask your recommendation for storage please? Thank you! Love your recipes xxx

    1. Hi Hannah
      So glad you enjoyed it!
      If they last longer than 24 hrs in your house (they don’t in mine 😉 ) I would suggest freezing them.

  15. Hi,
    These look amazing! going to make them later today.
    however tried a few supermarkets and all i could find was the sweet freedom choc pot (choc spread) and choc shake (for milkshakes)… could i use either of them?
    Ta!

    1. Hi Amy
      You should be fine to use either as a substitute, but if you use the choc pot you’ll need to make sure it’s mixed in well, as it’s much thicker. 🙂

  16. Mine didn’t go cake like at all 🙁 totally flat as a pancake and really dense! Don’t know what I did wrong 🤔🙁😩

  17. I was so desperate to make these brownies and I had all ingredients in the house apart from the fora light. I was too lazy to go out so I replaced the flora light with 0% fat Greek style yogurt – which in hind sight I think is actually pretty god to use as it gives the brownies a little bit of that “gooey brownie” texture while still be cooked all the way through – (I also only had 3 eggs left so I just used 3 instead of 4 eggs) and they turned out perfectly! I love this recipe! Thank you so much for sharing!

    1. Hi Karen
      You could try adding some chocolate extract or cocoa extract, available from Asda, Waitrose, Lakeland and Amazon. This will intensify the chocolate flavour. 🙂

    1. Hi Nikki
      Our recipes are just the starting point! You can add any flavourings you like to change things up. Chocolate/Orange is a classic combination. 🙂

  18. Thank you for such a lovely squidgy brownie recipe. My daughters have moaned about lack of home baking going on since I started SW and I must admit, I have missed baking.
    First batch are gently cooling as I type…although I admit I am sat here with a coffee and a warm ‘tester’ square as cook’s privilege!
    Out of sheer impatience and limited kitchen supplies, rather than trying to cut back on syns even more, I subbed the flora for fat free greek yoghurt and the choc chips for same weight in Chocologic Dark chocolate bashed into chunks (90% less sugar than ‘normal’ dark chocolate but you can kinda tell as it sadly affects the taste a little). Also used Sukrin Gold to add a depth of flavour (no idea if it really did that as but only sweetener to hand). Don’t think it affected texture and would switch again if needed.
    Would definitely recommend the yoghurt switch – lovely moist and tender crumb and lets face it, reduces the overall syn count by 7 syns. The Chocologic switch was ok but and helps reduce the syn value by another syn (down to 2 syns per slice using both tweaks). Not sure I would do this again though and might go the other way and use milk chocolate to up the sweetness next time, syns be damned!
    Only change I would probably make would be the sweetness level. It is chocolatey enough but not as sweet as I like. For this batch, thinking of serving it warm with a little low syn vanilla ice cream might do the trick. In future, I think I might experiment with cream cheese salted caramel type frosting, or just milk choc chips and a little increase in sweetener.
    Thanks again for a great source of inspiration.

  19. Just made these and they came out flat and with a sponge like texture. I had to substitute the flour for gluten free but all other ingredients the same. Preheated oven and didn’t open the door until cooked. Any advice gratefully received.-The mixture was quite runny so ???

    1. Hi Bridget
      It will be the GF flour that’s made a difference as there’s no raising agent, unlike the self-raising flour. 🙂

    1. Hi Jaime

  20. Would I be able to bake these as cupcakes instead of brownies please? Hoping to make Halloween cakes with the littlesvabd want something low syn for me! Thanks!
