I just tried the brownie recipe on the SW main website....... And ended up binning the whole lot. Tasted like cardboard. And seven syns each??!
i've just sat and worked out a much better recipe - now, admittedly I've not tried it out yet, but since it's based on a traditional recipe, and very little has been actually changed, other than swapping what I could to low syn versions, I can't see it going far wrong! In changing the sugar to sweetner, I have dropped it by about 100g, since sweetner is so much sweeter than sugar, but it think it's very much personal taste. They work out at 4.125 syns each (I rounded it to 4.5 syns to make it easier.)
Would appreciate a more experienced eye just checking I've got the syns right, though!
Brownies (own recipe)
300g sweetener (edit - NO way! Found a conversion chart that told me to divide the original about of sugar by 10, not take 100g off, so this should actually be 40g of sweetner!!! Lol!)
225g flora light 31.5 syns
60g weight watchers instant hot chocolate 10 syns
1tsp vanilla extract
225g plain flour 40.5 syns
1/2 tsp baking powder 0.5 syns
1/2 tsp salt
Makes 20 at 4.5 syns each.
Mix all ingredients in order given.
