    Hi there, I started SW last week and this week I bought Scan Bran! I'm not really sure what to do with it however, so would be very grateful for ideas! Someone mentioned making a chocolate cake! Does anyone have the recipe or are there other adventurous things to use it in (low in syns if poss!) ThanksX:confused:;)

    Christmas bran cake
    Syns for the whole cake:
    8½ Syns, or 6 Syns + 1 Healthy Extra ‘b’ choice
    You will need:
    5 Scan Bran
    2 beaten eggs
    1 tbsp golden syrup
    2 level tbsp mincemeat
    5 level tbsp sweetener (or to taste)
    1½ tsp mixed spice
    grated zest of a lemon for extra zing (optional)

    Method:
    Soak the Scan Bran in boiling water to soften. Then drain and mash.
    Mix all the ingredients together thoroughly.
    Pour the mixture into a microwavable bowl and microwave for around 6 minutes. When cooked the cake will be springy to the touch and will have pulled away from the side.
    Chef’s tip: Top with quark flavoured with brandy essence for a cold dessert. For a hot pud, enjoy with low fat custard
    (1 Syn per 2 level tbsp) or very low fat fromage frais/Müllerlight yogurt for Free!

    Low-Syn chocolate cake

    9 yummy Syns or 6½ Syns + 1 Healthy Extra ‘b’ choice

    For a free topping, pile with (defrosted) frozen forest fruits or, for extra Syns, top with chocolate spread.

    might be delicious but we've come up with a great solution to fix that chocolate craving for less than one third of the Syns! (Which means you can eat lots more without breaking the bank!)

    Crush 5 scan bran with a rolling pin, add 4 tablespoons of Nutella that has been warmed for 20 seconds in the microwave. Stir well and then roll into little balls- leave in the fridge to set.
    16 balls = 1 syn each-- heaven!

    Scotch eggs!
    4 hard boiled eggs
    8 morrisons eat smart pork sausages
    2 oatbran crushed

    take the skin from the sausages and mould one or two per egg around each egg, depending how you get on moulding them, you then roll the balls in outbran so its like breadcrumbs and cook in the oven gas 6 for half an hour until cooked.

    i found you only need 1/2 oatbran per egg so that would be 1/4 syn
