Is it a Tweak?

This recipe uses porridge oats that have been blitzed in a food processor. There have been many discussions on Facebook, as to whether using oats in this way is a tweak.

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 👍

Whenever we post a recipe we make sure that we supply the correct information regarding syns and tweaks. So in the interests of getting things right I contacted Slimming World directly.

No, it’s not a Tweak!

The good news is, I was told that you do not have to syn oats if you blitz them to use them in this way. There are 2  reasons for this. Firstly, putting the oats in a food processor does not alter the nutritional value. Secondly, 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 & Orange Waffles often and it affects your weight loss, then you should stop using the oats in this way.

What is Sukrin?

Sukrin make a range all natural sugar substitutes, that are free from calories and carbohydrates. They don’t have that nasty aftertaste and most importantly for those of us following Slimming World they are syn free.

They do a granulated sugar replacement, a brown sugar replacement and an icing sugar replacement. You can use them all just as you would their ‘normal’ counterparts and since discovering Sukrin we won’t use anything else.

Sukrin 1 is their granulated sugar replacement, and it can found on Amazon.

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.

Synning the sweetener

This recipe has been amended to take into account the new recommendations about synning sweetener. This will keep it 1 syn. 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 & Orange Waffles now uses 3/4 of a tablespoon of sweetener so there’s no need to add any syns on for the sweetener itself.

Now that we have cleared up any concerns about ‘tweaking’ we’d better get to the recipe for these awesome Low Syn Chocolate & Orange Waffles.

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.

Waffle Mould

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

Anything Slimming World friendly that contains chocolate and orange is incredibly popular, but if you fancy trying a different flavour…

  1. Hi all I’ve just made the chocolate orange waffles and really enjoyed them. Thank you for sharing this fab recipe. I’m looking forward to trying out some of your other ideas ????

  2. Just wondering if these are freezable? Want to havel these for Christmas Day breakfast but don’t want the faffing around baking that day!

    1. Hi did you ever find out if the waffles were freezable want to make these for a weekend of camping

      1. Hi Shara
        If you scroll down to the recipe card, you’ll see a freezer symbol, so they’re fine to freeze! 🙂

  3. Have just started slimming world and found your posts – love them, thanks do much for sharing.

    Choc shots! Would these be the same as Options sachets or are they something different.
    Thanks in advance.

    1. Hi Beverley
      Glad you’re finding the site useful. Re Choc Shots….They are a low syn chocolate sauce, and you can get them from all the major supermarkets, however only Sainsbury’s sell the choc orange and choc coconut ones

  4. Hi I tried making these in the waffle maker, it didn’t end weel. The waffles stick to the waffle maker, spilt out the sides are were really just a mush. How much batter would you suggest to ut in each plate in the machine and how long would you suggest cooking them for? Thanks for the Recipes.

    1. Hi Lewsey
      If you overfill the waffle maker, you’ll end up in a bit of a pickle. Add enough mixture to fill the base of the waffle plate, but leave room for them to expand.
      They often need longer than you expect. If you open the lid and the waffle does not come away from the plate cleanly, you should close it again and wait a few more minutes.
