Low Syn Chocolate and Orange Biscuits | Slimming World

This time last year, I was making butter laden, mega fatty shortcake biscuits…tasty as they were, they were not good for my waistline. So this year, I’ve baked these Low Syn Chocolate and Orange Biscuits instead (with a little help from Kate’s Gingerbread Bites).


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 👍

These little biscuits really hit the spot and sort out and craving for chocolate orange.

You can decorate them however you like – I like to pipe over the dark chocolate and sprinkle over some edible gold glitter to make them look really festive! You can pick some up on Amazon!


These Low Syn Chocolate and Orange Biscuits can be cut into any shape you like. I used a 5cm Star Cutter. You can find one in this set from Amazon.

If you do decide to use a different cutter you may need to adjust the syn value depending on how many you get out of the mix.


You’ll also need some Orange Extract. It’s amazing stuff!  It gives an intense orangey flavour so you only need a tiny bit. You can pick some up from Amazon if you can’t find any in the supermarkets.

Synning the sweetener

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 Chocolate and Orange Biscuits uses 6 tablespoons of sweetener and is divided into 42 biscuits. There’s no need to add any syns on for the sweetener itself as there’s only a tiny amount of sweetener per biscuit.

  1. Preheat the oven to 180 degrees. In a bowl, mix together the flour, cinnamon and bicarbonate of soda. Rub in the flora light until the mixture resembles breadcrumbs.
  2. Add the finely grated zest of one orange, orange extract, sukrin 1 and 25 grams of the chocolate chips and mix thoroughly. Mix in the egg to form a ball of dough.
  3. Turn out onto a lightly floured surface and knead until smooth. Roll out to about 5mm and cut into 42 shapes (I used a 5cm star cutter). Place onto a baking tray lined with parchment and lightly spray with frylight.
  4. Bake for 10 minutes until golden. Leave to cool.
  5. Melt the remaining dark chocolate chips and once the biscuits are cool, drizzle over. Decorate however you like and serve!

    1. Hi Jenny,

      The recipe hasn’t been tested using sugar so we wouldn’t know if it would work. Syn value would depend on how much sugar you used 😊

    1. Hi Salma
      Yes, we’d recommend that you keep these biscuits in an airtight container to maintain freshness. They can be kept for up to 3 days, if they last that long!! 😉

  1. Can anybody tell me how much sweetener to use for this recipe? I’m using a sucrulose based granulated sweetener from Tesco

    1. Hi Emma
      If it looks and weighs the same as sugar, rather than a powdered sweetener, then you should be fine to use the same amount. The very fine, powdered sweeteners will be much less. There are conversion charts available online, apparently.

    1. Hi Anne
      You could use one of the more traditional flavours, e.g. sunflower oil, but any of them will be fine. (apart from the savoury oils such as garlic or chilli!)

    1. Hi Jacqui
      You can freeze, but leave the chocolate decoration off the top until you need them. Once defrosted, you may want to pop them into a warm oven for a few minutes to crisp them up. Then cool and add the chocolate decoration.

  2. Hello, I’ve made these biscuits today. They taste good but are a little dry, any idea what I may have done wrong? Pretty sure I followed the recipe measurements.

    1. Hi Loz,

      They’re a bit of both! They should be crunchy on the outside and then have a soft, crumbliness to the middle 😊
