Syn free and Scrumptious
'Syn Free and Scrumptious' brings a few of my favorite recipes. If we're talking about how to FEEL GOOD and LOOK GOOD healthy eating is part of looking after yourself.
Weight creeps on much more easily as we get older and I'm not good at exercise so while I want to keep my weight under control I don't want to feel that I'm on a diet!
Healthy eating suits my digestion and the Slimming World way of eating suits my taste so I usually base my meals around that system. 'Syns' are likely to be foods that are high in fat and sugar, and are better kept to a minimum.
I'm starting with a couple of recipes that certainly don't look or taste as though you're watching your waistline!
Syn Free Pancakes
Sandwiched together with fat free fromage frais, banana and strawberries these pancakes are completely syn free.
A dash of chocolate sauce for the grandkids and they look quite decadent!
- 40g oats blitzed finely
- 2 eggs
- 1 tsp vanilla paste
- 1/2 Tbsp granular sweetener
- 1/2 tsp baking powder
- 1/4 cup Greek fat free yogurt
Mix all ingredients together and allow to stand for 10 minutes. Drop a good tablespoonful of mix into a hot non-stick frying pan and when one side is cooked, flip over. Eat hot or cold.
Instead of bottled sauce I mix a little
cocoa powder with a similar amount of honey or golden syrup and microwave for 30
seconds or so adding a spot of water if necessary - minimum calories.
You'll find an amazing array of healthy low fat recipes for all the family in A Pinch of Nom, the UK's fastest ever selling cookbook available on Amazon.
Syn Free Chocolate Cake
Why is a CHOCOLATE CAKE recipe on a Color and Style website?
I love to eat healthily and I love chocolate cake - so what better way to enjoy without gorging on fat and sugar!
I like my food and you know us Brits we need something for 4 o'clock tea-time - so what's better than a CHOCOLATE CAKE?
Bizarre ingredients I know but it works! Sandwich two for a celebration cake with a low fat filling; Nutella or sugar free jam, on a beautiful cake plate.
tin drained chickpeas
3 eggs whisked
1 tbsp vanilla essence
1 tbsp golden syrup or maple
- 28g cocoa powder
- 1 cup sweetener
1 tsp baking powder
Blitz all the ingredients together until smooth and pour into a greased microwaveable flan dish or bowl. Microwave for about 7 minutes on high.
It's low fat and if you're following Slimming World the syns are neglible.
Sandwich 2 together for a celebratory cake and serve on this 6-in-one cake stand/server.
And... now you're here it would be great if you'd like to look around at the COLORS, SHAPES, and STYLES that help you to Style Yourself Confident.
