And if you can’t wait for the new mint choc Hi-Fi bar, these Low Syn Mint Choc Chip Tarts should tide you over until they’re released!
We’ve used the milk as part of our HEA, but you can syn it if you prefer. Just don’t forget to add it on to the total syn value.
Filo pastry is so under rated and yet it’s really easy to use and quick to cook whilst being low syn.
Whenever we need to replace oil in cooking we use Frylight. Perfect for everyday frying and cooking, it delivers exactly one calorie per spray, which makes it Syn free! The Butter or Olive Oil flavours are ideal for this Low Syn Mint Choc Chip Tarts recipe.

We prefer to use extract as essences or flavourings are chemically developed which may result in a synthetic taste when used. Having said that if you can’t get hold of extract then essence will do the job.
What is Sukrin?
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 this Low Syn Mint Choc Chip Tarts.
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.
Should I Syn the sweetener in these Low Syn Mint Choc Chip Tarts?
As you will probably know Slimming World brought out some new recommendations regarding the syn value of granulated sweeteners last year. 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 Mint Choc Chip Tarts uses 3 tablespoons of sweetener and is divided into 6 portions. That’s half a tablespoon per portion, so there’s no need to add any syns on for the sweetener itself.
