You make these Low Syn Cranberry and Almond Oat Cookies using 2 Healthy Extra B options, which means you can have 5 cookies today and save 5 for tomorrow. Or if you’re on an SP day you could eat all of them!

Or you could just halve the ingredients to use 1 HEB.

If you don’t want to use your HEB 5 cookies will cost you 6 syns plus 2 syns for the cranberries.

To make a crispier cookie you can flatten them down more when you place them on the baking tray, but keep an eye on them so they don’t burn.

With only 6 ingredients this is a super easy recipe, and can be whipped up in minutes.

You can find Almond Extract in most supermarkets or here at Amazon . You can use almond essence, but we prefer to use extract. Essences or flavourings are a chemically developed flavouring and can often give a synthetic taste to your baking. Extracts are flavours ‘extracted’ straight from the source, for example vanilla extract would be taken from the vanilla bean, capturing the delicious and distinctive, rich flavour.

We use Sukrin Gold which is an all-natural granulated stevia sweetener alternative to sugar with zero calories. You can grab Sukrin Gold over on Amazon UK.

Sukrin Gold 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 Cranberry and Almond Oat Cookies.

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.

Should I Syn the sweetener in these Low Syn Cranberry and Almond Oat Cookies?

As you will probably know Slimming World made some changes recommendations regarding the syn value of granulated sweeteners. 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 Cranberry and Almond Oat Cookies uses 1 tablespoon of sweetener and is divided into 2 portions. That’s half a tablespoon per portion, so there’s no need to add any syns on for the sweetener itself.
