I know I’ve already made recipes such as my very yummy and highly recommended Slimming World Chocolate Chip Banana Muffins Recipe that I know people love! I’m always looking to make new recipes though so if you have any suggestions, let me know.

Now I can’t say these are low syn slimming world chocolate chip cupcakes because they’re not. What I can say is that they are totally worth the syns and taste amazing.

Make The Best Slimming World Chocolate Chip Cupcakes

There are a few hints and tips I’d suggest following when you’re making this slimming world cupcakes recipe. Sometimes cupcakes can be a total pain to make and things go wrong. An example, I tried making cupcakes once, got them out and they sunk and ended up in the bin.

If you’re going to make this mixture I would suggest using a wooden spoon to mix the mixture. If you want a nice and fluffy slimming world cupcake, by hand is the best way. That being said I know people like to use an electric mixer which is fine and easier. If you’re going to use an electric mixer, don’t overmix it!

I also need to stress, follow the ingredients and don’t go over. I’ve found people complain that the recipe doesn’t work and they don’t know why. When I ask them they say they’ve added more flour than needed or they decided to use less of something else. If you change the recipe, it might not work.
