Syn Free Cheesy Garlic Bread | Slimming World

I adore Cheesy Garlic Bread. If I could… I’d have it with every meal till the end of days! Garlic bread using Wholemeal bread doesn’t sound like my idea of fun, so we made this Syn Free Cheesy Garlic Bread using Schar White Ciabatta.

How is this Syn Free Cheesy Garlic Bread Syn free?

You might be sat there asking yourself, how exactly can this by Syn free. Well, it can only be Syn free if you use this to count towards both your Healthy Extra A & B.

Each piece of Syn Free Cheesy Garlic Bread is half of a white Schar Ciabatta. Half of a Schar Ciabatta is 1/2 your HEB.

If you use Light Cheddar then you use just 1/4 of your Healthy Extra A per piece (10g on each).

You can find Schar Ciabattas in the Free From aisle of most supermarkets. You can also buy them from the Schar online shop.

Wait! So this Syn Free Cheesy Garlic Bread doesn’t use butter?!

Correct! No butter at all. How? We used a quick spray of Olive Oil Frylight. A couple of sprays on each is all that you’d need.

When ever 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 Olive Oil or Butter flavours are ideal for this Syn Free Cheesy Garlic Bread recipe.

Just 10g of Cheese Per Piece? Really?!

Yes! I promise you, but how I hear you ask. Take a look at the image below.. this is how much cheese you get when grate 40g of cheese with a regular box grater.

Whist it looks like a lot, when you try and spread it around a piece of toast or two, you’re not going to get very far.

Below you see the exact same amount of cheese (40g) grated using our new snazzy Deiss grater! By grating the cheese finer, it goes a LOT further!

Do you put tomato on your Syn Free Cheesy Garlic Bread?

Yes we do, the more speed the better, right? We used a tomato sauce that we make in the pressure cooker/slow cooker and that recipe will be up very soon.

You can use some tomatoes/chipped tomatoes under the cheese. Makes it taste fab!

  1. Hi, where do I get the Schar white ciabatta from please ? I take it this is part of or all of my HEB ?
    I really like the sound of this and can’t wait to try it.
    Many thanks

    1. Hi Liz
      Asda, Tesco and Sainsburys usually stock them. Schar also have an online store if you can’t get hold of them, which is linked to in the article. One whole ciabatta is your HEB, so you could either use all of your HEB or half.
      We used the cheese as part of our HEA, or you could syn it if you prefer

    1. Hi Lesley
      The Schar ciabattas are the only ones that are an HEB option and in our opinion are nothing like other gluten free bread products

  2. As I’m not allowed to eat anything with pips in I used the flesh of fresh tomatoes mixed with a little passata. This will not alter the values will it?

  3. Tried these last week, totally lush. Sooo missed garlic bread. On the second lot I made I had run out of fresh garlic so used the garlic fry light & it works just as well.

  4. Just so I know I’ve got this right, if only using 1/4 of HeA of cheese (10g per half ciabatta) I would then still have half of my HeA left for the day?
