If you love a sweet treat and have the post Christmas blues, then this Low Syn Mississippi Mud Pie Cheesecake will hit the spot! Who says you can’t enjoy desserts on Slimming World?
This delicious recipe came from one of the members of our Facebook Group. Janet has been a Pinch of Nom Facebook Group member for several months and really enjoys posing on the page and reading other people’s inspirational posts. Here’s a bit about her journey:
“I joined Slimming World in November 2014 as I was concerned about my high blood pressure. Within 12 months I was 2 pounds from target having lost 4 stone 2 pounds. I then lost my way, and for the last 12 months have been going up and down, and I now have 21 pounds to target.
I rejoined my Slimming World group in Diss, Norfolk last week and bought a 12 week countdown plan. The group have missed me as they consider me as the resident baker, who always takes in samples for tasting! I am determined to get to target in 2017, however long it takes.”
The coffee in this recipe is a clever addition as it gives it the hint of bitterness that you’d get from a good dark chocolate, without the additional syns. If you don’t like coffee, then this can be left out but it really adds to the depth of flavour.
This cheesecake is only 2 syns a slice, and although it doesn’t have a biscuit base, the clever oaty topping really gives it some crunch. It will last for several days in the fridge…if you can resist!

You’ll need a couple of things for this Low Syn Mississippi Mud Pie Cheesecake. First you’ll need an 8 inch loose bottomed cake pan, like this one on Amazon.
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 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 Mississippi Mud Pie Cheesecake uses 7 tablespoons of sweetener and is divided into 10 portions. That’s less than a tablespoon per portion, so there’s no need to add any syns on for the sweetener itself.
