Healthy Eating and Having Treats
Following a healthy eating plan or a diet, the one thing that everyone automatically does is deprives themselves from certain foods or treats.
I completely understand why people do it, I’ve even done it myself, but I quickly learnt that a little bit of what you fancy is a good thing and will actually compliment a healthy eat or weight loss journey.
If you deprive yourself of everything that is “naughty” then you will snap, fall off the waggon and then feel guilty as a result.
Slimming World Chocolate Cake Squares
When a lot of people think about cake on a healthy eating plan, people would never think that you could include cake, as long as it is in moderation, well these Slimming World Low Syn Chocolate Cake Squares are perfect.
They are also great for an evening treat or even an adult or children’s party and I know your guests won’t be able to tell the difference.
I made these for work and no one knew that is was a Slimming World recipe, so that’s a win right?
Slimming World Desserts and Treats
If you are wondering what other Slimming World treats you can make that won’t cost too many syns, there are a number that I can think of straight away, all depending on what mood you’re in.
One of my absolute favourites has to be the Slimming World Diet Coke Chocolate Cake, or even an awesome Slimming World Oreo Cheesecake, Slimming World White Chocolate Blondies or if you really don’t want chocolate, then why not check out my Slimming World Low Syn Marshmallow Treat Bars (perfect for the whole family).
Slimming World Sponge Cake
If you fancy making these and adding a little bit extra, you could drizzle white chocolate over the top to make them really stand out, but if you do that, don’t forget you would have to Syn the extra chocolate.
Let me know how you got on with this recipe, if you made any changes or what your thoughts are to the cake.
How Many Syns In Slimming World Chocolate Cake?
These chocolate cake squares are delicious and ideal for desserts, treats, birthdays and more.
There has been some changes to syn values when Slimming World made some amendments.
That means that each square comes in at 4 syns each. That’s really not that much when you think about the yummy treat you’re going to have once you have a perfect slimming world day!
Slimming World Chocolate Cake Cost
Who doesn’t like chocolate?
I know, strange people. Chocolate is good for you in moderation. This is a cheap cake to make with the whole cake costing just over than £1. This is absolutely perfect for lunch boxes, birthdays and more.
When you bake your own cake from scratch, it is far more rewarding and fun than buying a pre-made cake from the shops.
I wouldn’t even recommend using the cake mixtures either. Making a cake from scratch means you have complete control over what goes into it and what it will turn out like.
