As you’ll probably know by now we are huge fans of Chinese Takeaway, or I should say we ‘were’ huge fans before we started on the Slimming World journey. Now we make our own Slimming World friendly versions like these Syn Free Salt and Pepper Chips.
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 👍
These Syn Free Salt and Pepper Chips have become one of our favourite ‘Fakeaway’ recipes as it tastes just like the ones you get from the takeaway.

The quantities for the spice mix will make more than enough for the Syn Free Salt and Pepper Chips recipe, so you can just keep any extra spice mix in an airtight container or sealed food bag until you’re ready to use it again!
It’ll last for around three months.
We always have a bag in our cupboard! Or you could even try our syn free Salt and Pepper Pork recipe with what you have left over.
You’ll notice that Salt and Pepper Spice Mix recipe calls for MSG or Monosodium glutamate.
Monosodium Glutamate or MSG is a flavour enhancer commonly added to most Chinese food from the takeaway.
There have been many debates about the use of MSG, so if you prefer not use it you can just leave it out.
However, if you do want to use it you can buy it here on Amazon.

What is Sukrin?
We use Sukrin 1 which is an all-natural granulated stevia sweetener alternative to sugar with zero calories.
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 this Syn Free Salt and Pepper Chips.
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.
Whenever 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 Rapeseed or Avocado Oil flavours are ideal for this Syn Free Salt and Pepper Chips recipe.
Synning the sweetener in this Syn Free Salt and Pepper Chips recipe
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 these Syn Free Salt and Pepper Chips uses 1 tablespoon of sweetener, but is divided into 2 portions. That’s half a tablespoon per portion, so there’s no need to add any syns on for the sweetener itself.
