We had a request from a couple of our readers after they’d tried some other recipes they’d found online which didn’t quite hit the mark. There’s nothing worse than spending time and money on a recipe that just doesn’t work!

It’s taken us a few attempts over a few weeks, but we think our Syn Free Sweet Chilli Sauce is pretty damn good.

How is this a Syn Free Sweet Chilli Sauce?

One thing to point out with this Syn Free Sweet Chilli Sauce is that it does contain 1 tsp of honey.

Now, we know that honey is Synned at 1 syn per teaspoon.

However, this recipe will make around 8 tablespoons of Syn Free Sweet Chilli Sauce, and the sauce is quite hot.

This means that you probably won’t be using more than 1 tablespoons per serving anyway so that would work out at 1/8 of a Syn per portion. If you want to Syn it is entirely up to you.

For this reason, we have chosen not to Syn it. Having said that the choice is yours!

If you want to syn the honey then do so – it’s your own journey is not our place (or anyone elses) to decide or judge what is best for you.

How do I make this Syn Free Sweet Chilli Sauce?

This has to be one of our easiest recipes. It takes less than 15 minutes to make, and once it’s done you can keep it in an airtight jar in the fridge until you’re ready to use it. It will last about a week in the fridge.

Step 1

First, mist a small pan with Frylight, then cook off the garlic, shallot and chopped chilli until they have started to colour slightly and smell fragrant.

Step 2

Pour in the white wine vinegar, then add the Sukrin, salt and tomato puree. Stir well and bring it to the boil.

Step 3

Stir in the honey, allow to simmer for a minute then remove from the heat.

Step 4

Add the Xanthan Gum a sprinkle at a time, whisking well after each addition. Continue adding and whisking until the sauce has thickened to the right consistency. Check the taste and add a little more Sukrin if necessary.

Step 5

Remove from the heat and allow to cool, then pour into a clean airtight jar or bottle and keep in the fridge until you’re ready to use.

Synning the sweetener in this Syn Free Sweet Chilli Sauce

As you will probably know last year Slimming World brought out some new recommendations regarding the syn value of granulated sweeteners. This means that:

Where there is 1 tbsp or more being used per serving they recommend you 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 Sweet Chilli Sauce uses 2.5 tablespoons of sweetener and is divided into 8 portions. That’s less than a tablespoon per portion, so there’s no need to add any syns on for the sweetener itself.

What is Sukrin?

This post contains affiliate links. Find out what this means.

We use Sukrin 1 which is an all-natural granulated stevia sweetener alternative to sugar with zero calories.

You can grab Sukrin 1 over on Amazon UK.

Sukrin 1 doesn’t have that strange aftertaste 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 Sweet Chilli Sauce recipe.

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.

What else will I need?

First, you’ll need a fine grater. We used our new snazzy Deiss grater! It’s great (pardon the pun) for grating not only cheese, garlic, onions, ginger, anything really!

Want a Deiss grater? You can grab one over on Amazon & by using code 8VHVPN53 you can have 20% off!

How fab is that?! Just be careful when you’re using it, you don’t want to Deiss with death (I’ll get my coat 😂).

You’ll also need some Xanthan Gum.

Xanthan Gum is a syn free thickener and works a bit like cornflour. You add it to a liquid, and it thickens but you only need to add a little!

When I say a little you use 1/4 tsp Xanthan gum in place of 1 tbsp cornflour.

You can grab Xanthan Gum in the free from aisle of any supermarket (it’s gluten free!), or you can grab it from Amazon.

Last but not least, if you don’t have a glass jar to store this you may want to grab something like this Kilner Clip Top Jar from Amazon.

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 Sunflower or Olive Oil flavours are ideal for this Syn Free Sweet Chilli Sauce recipe.
