Slimming World – Syn Free Cheese Scones! Yummy!

Another Slimming World recipe that I love.

Cheese scones Рcan also be made into little balls and eaten as a snack.  They are syn free if you are following the plan as long as you have the cheese as your healthy extra.
Cheese-scones-_red-leicester_
300g chive and onion cottage cheese (or plain)
Salt and pepper to season.
2 eggs.
100g instant mash (dried powder form)
Frylight.

Whizz the cottage cheese with a hand blender, season and whizz in the 2 eggs.
Stir in the instant mash powder to make a dough like consistency.
Separate into balls and flatten.
Put on an oven tray and spray with frylight then cook on 180c for 20 mins.

They can also be jazzed up with garlic, chilli or fresh herbs. It works well with plain cottage cheese and dried chives too.

Even if you’re not on the plan these are healthy and actually tasty little snacks.

xx Enjoy! ūüôā

Slimming World – Low Syn Jelly Sweets!

haribo_teddy_bear_sweets_candy_treats

Ingredients:

1 x sachet of jelly crystals
2 x sachets of gelatine powder
1/2 pint water

2-3 small silicone moulds optional: 1/2 to 1 teaspoon of Citric Acid

Method:

1.  Place 1/2 pint water in a small saucepan and put onto a gentle heat
2.¬† Add sachet of jelly crystals, I use Hartley’s at 1.5 syns for 1 sachet and stir until dissolved.
3.¬† Add both sachets of gelatine powder¬†and then gently stir until dissolved (don’t worry if it goes instantly lumpy, just keep stirring and it should all dissolve)
4.  At this point add the citric acid if you like that sour edge. I love it, the more sour the better!
5.  Pour into jelly moulds and then put in fridge for at least 1 1/2 hours.
 And voila! Jelly sweets!
I’m starting to like these better than the shop bought ones and everyone I’ve forced them upon has really enjoyed them too.
The thing is with these the possibilities are endless, you can try different flavours, adding a tablespoon of yoghurt to make a different texture, even splitting the layers to have multi-coloured sweets.
It’s a fab activity to try with the¬†family and you can even get experimental with the moulds you have around the house: egg cups, yogurt pots, cake moulds, ice-cube trays, shot glasses and on and on.¬† If you use anything non silicone based, i would recommend spraying the inside with FryLight first to make it easier to get out.
If you’re interested, I got the moulds from PoundStretcher and B&M¬†also do them from time to time and I found the other chocolate moulds in T.K.Maxx.¬† Now I’m always on the look out for fun moulds.¬† Enjoy and report back if you find any cool variations.
Happy slimming!
P.S. I have tried (in vain) to make syn free versions of the above that would still remain edible.¬† I have tried sugar free squashes and also diet fizzy drinks but none taste as good as with the jelly crystals.¬† So feel free to try, but believe me, I wouldn’t bother, so throw caution to the wind and use your 1 1/2 syns.¬†¬† You deserve it (wink).
