Sometimes only cake will do. It's often difficult when buying a cake from a supermarket and having to portion it correctly, or even home baking and guessing the syns.
These 1 cake packs are 79p. I got mine from the baking aisle of Asda.
The chocolate chip is 291 calories which equates to 14.5 syns on the Slimming World snackulator and Lemon is 267 calories which is 13.5 syns on the Snackulator.
They take 1 min 10 seconds to cook and all you need is 60ml of milk (which is already included in the calorie calculation on the packet).
I served my husband the Lemon one tonight for dessert with 12g of light spray cream for 26 calories / 1.5 syns.
Right... earlier today SW posted on Facebook asking people for tips for holidays!
Most of the 'tips' were along the lines of 'enjoy yourself' and 'forget the diet', which is fine for some people, but there were not enough genuine supportive tips for my liking!

I recently got the chance to try out Littles Coffee. I love it! It has no sugar, 4 cals a cup, natural flavours, no syns! It's all infused in the UK and they are a family run company. The natural flavours really make this coffee stand out for me, as some who is increasingly looking to keep my diet as natural as possible. Here I have Chocolate Caramel, CafÃ© Amaretto, Rich Hazelnut, Chocolate Orange, Swiss Chocolate, and French Vanilla. This coffee available in Waitrose, Holland & Barratt, and also on their website www.wearelittles.com. I love them! They are very lovely flavours and definitely perk up a morning coffee! A very lovely product for a lovely little company!Read more
Today is day 8 of my #nochocolatechallenge. I started this challenge for a couple of reasons. I love chocolate. What's not to like? It's so yummy. It makes you feel good and it's all round one of the tastiest things ever! So... I stopped eating chocolate because I felt controlled by it. That's stupid, right? But it's true. I have issues with eating too much food. That's why I got overweight in the first place. One of the things that helped get me overweight was excessive eating of chocolate. I've always successfully controlled my intake throughout my whole Slimming World journey, but the problem is that once I eat it I want more, then I subsequently have to use my willpower to the max to stop myself eating more. Having willpower is great, but using it requires energy. Not of the physical kind, but of the mental kind. It's taxing when you are thinking about wanting bad things then putting yourself back in check. So I thought 'why give myself extra work?'. So I quit chocolate. Just like that! Packed up all my stash into a suitcase (yep that's how big my stash is) and put it upstairs. The last...Read more
