A few of weeks ago we started a Facebook Group for those people who wanted to talk to us about not only our recipes, but Slimming World friendly food in general. As chefs we’re really lucky that we are in a position to help people from a culinary point of view.
We’re also loving the recipes that others are sharing with us on the group, like these fabulous summer strawberry oat muffins!
This recipe makes 6 delicious Strawberry Oat Muffins using 80g of Oats. You can have 3 for your daily HEB and save 3 for the next day!
They are Syn Free, unless you want to count the 1 cooked strawberry on the top (we don’t, but they are 1.5 syns for 100g of cooked strawberries if you do). If you don’t want to use your HEB they will be 2 syns each.
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 this Syn Free Summer Strawberry Oat Muffins.
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 for these Syn Free Summer Strawberry Oat Muffins
As you will probably know Slimming World brought out some new recommendations regarding the syn value of granulated sweeteners last year. 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 Syn Free Summer Strawberry Oat Muffins uses 1.5 tablespoons of sweetener and is divided into 2 portions. That’s less than a tablespoon per portion, so there’s no need to add any syns on for the sweetener itself.
