Syn Free Strawberry & Vanilla Waffles | Slimming World

These Syn Free Strawberry & Vanilla Waffles are a fab Slimming World breakfast idea. It’s a great way to start the day with super speed fruit too!

Is It A Tweak?

Before we get to the recipe for these Syn Free Strawberry and Vanilla Waffles, we need to point something out, this recipe uses porridge oats that have been blitzed in a food processor.

Facebook has been rife with the debate as to whether oats that have been ground down, are Synned or still carry their free food status.

So in our quest to bring you the most correct information we can, I rang the Syns Hotline and spoke to Slimming World Head Office.

Might as well hear it straight from the horses mouth, right?

It’s Not a Tweak!

I was told that you do not need to Syn the ground oats, as blitzing them does not alter the nutritional value.

As you are using them as you’re HEB the amount you can eat is restricted so there’s very little chance of you overeating them. That sounds reasonable enough!

However, as with anything that could be considered a possible tweak…

If you eat these Syn Free Strawberry & Vanilla Waffles often and it affects your weight loss, then you should avoid it.

This recipe has been 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 Strawberry & Vanilla Waffles uses 3/4 of a tablespoons of sweetener, so there’s no need to add any syns on for the sweetener itself.

Since we posted our first recipe for Baked Oats we’ve come to realise just how many people enjoy oats. In fact, it’s crazy. We’ve seen; Baked Oats, Overnight Oats, Waffles, even pancakes made with the same mixture!

There’s been a lot of talk about Waffles on our Facebook group recently, so we thought we’d try them out.

First we made Syn Free Lemon Blueberry Waffles, and now it’s the Syn Free Strawberry & Vanilla Waffles turn!

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, then tip them out onto a baking tray for the last 5-10 minutes.

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 Strawberry & Vanilla 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.

  1. Hiya, really glad you found out about the blitzed oats as I found a recipe for mug cake with them and hadn’t had a chance to ring. Looking forward to trying the waffles and have ordered the mould. Thank you x

  2. Made these today delicious, added some more fat free yoghurt and frozen fruit, very filling. Bought the mould from Amazon and so easy to use

  3. Just had these for my breakfast absolutely delicious. Didnt have vanilla flavoiring so used salted caramel instead. I was worried that they wouldnt come out of the mould ok but they looked amazing. Will definitely be making them again.

  4. Just wondering if it fills all 5 sections of the mould using the recipe or should I double it? I want to make enough for me, my husband and son.

    1. Hi JT,

      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 Strawberry & Vanilla Waffles uses 1 tablespoon of Sukrin and is divided into 1 portions. That’s less than 1 tbsp a portion so there is no need to add any syns on for the sweetener itself in this recipe.

    1. Hi Brenda, you could try a stick blender, but you could also do it without blitzing the oats, the texture won’t be as smooth but they will still turn out fine 🙂

  5. Hi Everyone, when you/we blitz oats it becomes flour and therefore the oats aren’t a tweak but have to be syned…sorry 🙁

    1. Hi Jane,
      If you take a look at the write up about the recipe you will see that the information provided by Slimming World themselves states that as the oats are used as your Healthy Extra B then you do not need to syn them, even when they are blitzed. This is because the nutritional value of oats does not change when blitzed and also because Healthy Extras are measured therefore you cannot over eat them. We endeavour to bring you the most up to date information possible when we post recipes and we spend a lot of time each month in contact with the Syns Hotline to clarify anything that could be considered a tweak, or just to confirm syn values so that all the information we post is accurate.

    1. Hi Jane
      We’ve never tried, but I don’t see why you wouldn’t be able to batch cook them, freeze them and then just toast/reheat them when you want. let us know how you get on if you try 🙂

    1. Hi there
      You can probably reduce the eggs and yogurt if you’re making that much. As long as you are able to get 4 equal portions out of it due to the use of the Healthy Extra

  6. Hi I made these as per the recipe however they turned out soggy in the middle why is that ? I cooked for 25 mins then turned out and cooked for another 10 mins
    Thanks in advance

    1. Hi Lisa
      The consistency of waffles and baked oats can be a bit of a personal preference really, so if you find them a bit soggy you could try using 1 egg instead of 2.
