cooked lemon curd muffins

If you’re fed up with slimming world breakfast muffins being the only thing you find when you search for slimming world muffins, have no fear! These slimming world lemon muffins are the thing you need to help you on your slimming world journey!

Slimming world snacks can be few and far between, which is why I’ve started making my own. I don’t see the point in paying out £12 for a box of slimming world friendly muffins when I can spend less than £3 making 12 of my own using a healthy muffin recipe!

This slimming world muffins recipe is super easy to make, takes hardly any ingredients and takes no time at all. It’s similar to a slimming world lemon drizzle cake but in muffin form, literally, they’re amazing and you won’t be able to get enough!

Slimming World Lemon Muffins

You might have seen I’m playing around a lot more with slimming world snacks and slimming world desserts. I’ve written a post on low syn slimming world snacks before but they’re all shop brought and I think it’s a lot more fun if you make what you eat yourself.

If you like this muffin recipe I’d suggest looking into these Slimming World Chocolate Chip Banana Muffins Recipe, my whole family love them and quite personally I’ve baked them a few times and always enjoy them.

These slimming world lemon curd muffins have a nice sweet lemon taste, although it’s not overpowering. I will say that you need to be careful what lemon curd you buy as some of them can be full of syns and need avoiding. You can make your own and if you use that in the recipe, it is less syns in the muffins.

How To Make Slimming World Sweet Muffins

I have said before that making savoury slimming world muffins is fine and they taste amazing. I like my sweet treats and that’s why I like making sweet slimming world recipes and this is how I make sweet slimming world muffins.

You need to make sure that the muffin mix is well mixed. You will have some lumps of lemon curd left in the mix and that’s okay as it will melt in the oven and gives the lemon muffins such a great taste! I like using top quality lemon curd but everyone has their own preference.

I’ve heard these mentioned as lemon drizzle fairy cakes or slimming world lemon drizzle cupcakes. I say no, I like to make big lemon muffins and you could say they’re a bit like the Costa lemon muffins that taste so good.

If you are looking at making a Costa lemon muffins recipe, this is the best one. However I will say you need to have the fancy muffin cases, they might cost a bit but they’re well worth it trust me! They look so professional and everyone will love them!

Slimming World Lemon Drizzle Muffins Recipe

Although these aren’t traditional lemon drizzle muffins, I will say you can easily make them into just that. I personally feel that there’s more than enough lemon in these but if you want you can always add lemon zest to give it a powerful flavour kick and a little more texture.

I will say that the syrup you put on once they’re cooked is the most important part and gives them the most flavour. Make sure you poke the muffins with a handy cake testing skewer as it will help the syrup to really penetrate the muffins.

If you are looking for the best slimming world cakes recipe, this is in my top favourite 3. Slimming world cakes can be problematic, the syn values can change often and sometimes they can do more harm than good!
