Synning the sweetener in these Low Syn Profiteroles

As you will probably know Slimming World have brought out some 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 we 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 Profiteroles uses 2 tablespoons of sweetener and is divided into 35 profiteroles so unless you eat more than 8 of these, you will not need to Syn the sweetener itself.

Step 1

Preheat the oven to 160 degrees. Spray two baking trays with Frylight and line with baking parchment.

Step 2

Add the granulated sweetener, salt, Flora Light and water into a saucepan and bring to the boil. Take off the heat and mix in the flour. The mixture will look lumpy at first but persevere.

Continue to mix until the mixture forms a ball and comes away from the sides of the saucepan.

This will take a lot of elbow grease (think of the Body Magic!!) and may not come together for around 5 minutes.

Step 3

Add the egg to the mixture and stir well to incorporate.

Step 4

Add the mixture to a piping bag with a wide nozzle.

Pipe 35 profiteroles onto the trays. If there are any little “tails” just dab them down with a wet finger.

Step 5

Place in the oven for 40 minutes – do not open the oven door before this time or the profiteroles may collapse.

After this time, turn off the oven. Take the profiteroles out and turn them over. Return to the oven, leaving the door ajar and the oven off for a further 10 minutes to completely dry out.

Step 6

When they are completely cool, poke a hole in the bottom with a skewer.

Take some reduced fat aerosol cream and poke the nozzle into the small hole in the base of each profiterole, squirting a small amount into each.

  1. I know you said use immediately? Does it collapse within itself if left too long? I want to make these for a buffet party and will need to keep it for a couple hours. I usually make full fat stuff but this sounds just as good! Thanks

    1. Hi Carol
      They’ll be fine to keep for a few hours, just put the cream in at the last minute to prevent them from going soggy!

  2. I make profiteroles but do not add any sugar to the “dough” find it is not necessary as you have the filling and topping which for me makes it sweet enough – wonder if you have tried this
