    Ingredients


    • 250g Chick Peas, Tinned, Organic, Tesco

    • 3 Egg/168g Eggs, Medium, Average
    • 100g Cheese, Quark, Average

    Method

    Pre heat oven to 180 degrees


    1. Spray a 7 inch cake tin with fry light and leave to one side.


    2. Drain the chick peas and rinse thoroughly with water.


    3. Place the chick peas in a blender and blend until smooth then add the eggs and blend again.


    4. Add the sweetener, vanilla extract and baking powder.

    Spread the remaining quark on top of the cake and add some fresh fruit for decoration.

    you just need to be careful when having this, as slimming world head office have confirmed you need to syn the chickpeas, as you are using them as a substitute for flour.

    so it is 5 syns I think per 28g of chickpeas.

    your right they are free when used in a filling meal.

    the are synned in a cake, because they are used as a substitute for flour. The same would go for cous cous or anything like that which you use to replace flour .

    Hello brit mum in canada, does that mean that the onion bhajis(chick pea blended in recipe along with the mashed potato) and also the cous cous dumplings would be synned? If so is there an alternative because I am struggling, im keeping my syns down but want to make stew and dumpling, and all the other nice things without it been synned. Thank you in advance :confused:

    No you'll be fine with your bhaji. I think the question you need to ask is whether you would have used that product in that way before SW. Clearly you wouldn't have chosen to use chickpeas or cous cous when making a cake. Also you are using the chickpeas as part of a main meal and will be eating them in limited quantities rather than as a snack where there is the potential to eat large amounts very easily.

    Just be aware this is an old post, and things like this are no longer officially free, and are classed as food abuse because you are not using the free food as it was intended!! Altho a lot of people still eat them and lose weight! :)
