Syn Free Lemon & Blueberry Waffles | Slimming World

Before we get to the recipe for the Syn Free Lemon Blueberry Waffles, the first thing I need to point out is that it uses blitzed oats.

Is it a tweak?

You’ll probably know there has been much debate as to whether oats should be synned when they are used this way.

For the full list of ingredients and comprehensive instructions, please see the recipe card at the end of this post. Before you scroll, there’s important stuff in the blurb 👍

So in our quest to bring you the most up to date, correct information I contacted Slimming World directly to ask if ground down oats needed to be synned.

No it’s not!

I was told that you do not need to syn them as blitzing them does not alter the nutritional value. Also, as you are using them as you’re HEB the amount you can eat is restricted so there’s very little chance of you over eating them.

However, as with anything that could be considered a tweak, if using the oats this way affects your weight loss then you should avoid it.


Synning the sweetener

We have amended to take into account the new recommendations about synning sweetener. This will keep it syn free. If you want to add more sweetener then you should syn it at 0.5 syns per tablespoon.

As you will probably know Slimming World have brought out some new 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 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 Syn Free Lemon & Blueberry Waffles now uses 3/4 of a tablespoon of sweetener so there’s no need to add any syns on for the sweetener itself.

The Recipe

This recipe has been amended to take into account the changes Slimming World have recently made to Healthy Extras.

So, now we know that blitzing oats doesn’t affect syn values here’s a bit more about our Syn Free Lemon & Blueberry Waffles.

Since we posted our first recipe for Baked Oats we’ve come to realise just how many people enjoy oats, no matter how they are prepared. Baked Oats, Overnight Oats. They are all incredibly popular.

One thing we haven’t tried, up until now, is oat waffles. There’s been a lot of talk about them on our Facebook group recently, so we thought we’d try them out. Starting with Syn Free Lemon Blueberry Waffles.

The first thing I noticed while these were cooking is that they really do smell like waffles. And they didn’t taste too dissimilar either.

If you want that crispness of a waffle tip them out onto a baking tray for the last 5 minutes.

You can use a waffle maker for these Syn Free Lemon & Blueberry Waffles, if you have one, but we just used one of these waffle moulds from Amazon.

We use Sukrin 1 which is an all-natural granulated stevia sweetener alternative to sugar with zero calories. You can grab Sukrin 1 over onAmazon UK.

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 these Syn Free Lemon & Blueberry Waffles.

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.

    1. Hi Lesley,

      Yes they are. We have a lot of recipes that were written before the changes, and we are working through them to make any necessary. We have around 250 – 300 recipes on the site so it may take some time to get them all amended

  1. Had these this morning, they were lovely, I forgot to put the sweetener in but they were sweet enough in my opinion with the muller light yogurt. I assume the recipe is for 4 waffles as I made double (only 2 in picture) for the wife and I, and had to clean up the overspill from my electric waffle maker, even though I had not used all the batter, lol! Will definitely make these again 👍

    Oh, we had them with bacon and syn free caramel syrup.

  2. I tried these in a waffle making machine. Disaster, wouldn’t recommend doing them in a machine. Completely fell apart and although the machine is new and I used fry light, totally stuck to the machine.
    Will have to try some moulds!

    1. Hi Sue
      It’s important not to overfill the waffle plates when making these in a machine. The mixture expands as it cooks, which will spill over and make a mess.
      If the mixture sticks to the machine, it usually needs to be cooked for a while longer. Once the waffle is cooked, it should come away cleanly from the waffle plate. Hope this helps.

  3. I make waffles most days and instead of using porridge oats and blitzing, I just use “ready brek”. Still 40g and HeB. Saves time. Also when doing SP days I will use quark instead of yoghurt which I find binds the waffles better and makes them fluffier! Love this recipe
