Low Syn Chocolate and Coconut Waffles | Slimming World

Is It A Tweak?

First, let’s clear something up before we get to the recipe for these Low Syn Chocolate and Coconut Waffles. This recipe uses porridge oats that have been blitzed in a food processor.

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 👍

There has been many a debate on Facebook as to whether oats that have been ground down, are synned or still carry their free food status.

As always, we like to pass on the most up to date information we can, so I rang the Syns Hotline and spoke to Slimming World directly. Might as well hear it straight from the horses mouth, right?

It’s Not a Tweak!

Now the good news! I was told that you do not need to syn the ground oats, as blitzing them does not alter the nutritional value. As you are using them as you’re HEB the amount you can eat is restricted so there’s very little chance of you over eating them.

Having said that, as with anything that could be considered a possible tweak, if you eat these Low Syn Chocolate and Coconut Waffles often and it affects your weight loss, then you should stop using the oats in this way.

Synning the sweetener

This recipe has been amended to take into account the new recommendations about synning sweetener. This will keep it 1 syn, for the choc shot. If you want to add more sweetener then you should syn it at 0.5 syns per tablespoon.

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 these Low Syn Chocolate and Coconut Waffles now uses 3/4 of a tablespoon of sweetener so there’s no need to add any syns on for the sweetener itself.

This recipe has been amended to take into account the changes Slimming World have recently made to Healthy Extras.

So, now we know that blitzing oats doesn’t affect syn values, we’d better get on with our recipe for Low Syn Chocolate and Coconut Waffles.


Since we posted our first recipe for Baked Oats we’ve come to realise just how popular oats are. In any form. We’ve seen; Baked Oats, Overnight Oats, Waffles (and pancakes made with the same mixture!)

Our members have been talking about Waffles on our Facebook group quite a bit recently. So we thought we’d try them out. First we made Syn Free Lemon Blueberry Waffles, and then Syn Free Strawberry & Vanilla Waffles and now we have these!

The first thing you’ll notice when you make waffles this way, is they really do smell like waffles! They smell amazing while they’re cooking. They taste pretty similar to waffles too.

If you want them a bit crispier just tip them out of the mould onto a baking tray for the last 5 minutes or so.

You can use a waffle maker for these Low Syn Chocolate and Coconut Waffles, if you have one, but we just used one of these waffle moulds from Amazon UK.

To add that coconut hit, we’ve used some coconut essence.

You can pick it up at most supermarkets, or over on Amazon!

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 these Low Syn Chocolate and Coconut Waffles.

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. Please could you tell me if it is possible to batch cook these and then freeze them? If so how long will they keep in the freezer? If they can’t be kept in the freezer, how long would they keep in the fridge.

    Many thanks 🙂

    1. Hi Debbie
      I don’t see why they wouldn’t freeze, although we’ve not tried. We’ve kept them for about 3 days without any problems

    1. Hi Cat
      You could probably keep it overnight to save some time in the morning. Make sure to give it a good stir before you use it though

  2. Hi just wanted to inform you that the yogurt used in this recipe coconut with a hint of vanilla is syn free as are almost all of the Greek style yogurts.

    1. Thanks for getting in touch, Lyn. We’re in the process of updating the recipes. Details will be revised to reflect the new syn values for the Muller Greek yogurt.
