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.

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.

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.
