    Had a taste of the cherry and almond version of these muffins in group today, they were absolutely delicious, I can't believe something so good can be syn free on both green and extra easy days!!

    Recipe makes 12

    225g fine ground polenta
    1 large beaten egg
    1 tsp bicarbonate of soda
    3 pots of vanilla mullerlight low fat yoghurt
    7 - 10 tbsps Splenda
    1 - 2 tsps vanilla extract

    1. Put all ingredients in a bowl and mix for at least 3 minutes. Leave to stand for at least 20 minutes.
    2. Spoon into muffin tins that have been sprayed with frylight.
    3. Cook for about 20 minutes at 200C / Gas mark 6

    Variations -
    cherry yoghurt and replace vanilla extract with almond.
    vanilla & chocolate yoghurt with rind and juice of 1 orange with 1 tsp vanilla.


    Enjoy! :)

    Im gonna have to be a pest im afraid. Did you know that Polenta has a syn value if it is used as flour?? They say that this is because you can over indulge in these items and so they can then affect your losses. Sorry for this! :(

    Basic/Non Branded Foods Polenta, ground/used as flour 28g - 5 syns (both days)

    Well if thats the case it works out as 3 syns per muffin! Not as good as syn free but definately worth a go!

    I have to agree they are lovely! Just had a banana one warm yum yum...think i might have to warm up a banana and custard muller light and pretend its custard to go with the next one lol x

    As far as I know its the whole grain polenta for this recipe, which would make it syn free on green / EE, but I will check next week when I'm back at group.
    Thanks for pointing this out though, I was planning on trying all the varieties but I will hold back a bit now :)

    These sound lovely! Especially if the kids eat them too. I'm going to give them a go as soon as i get some polenta, i'm willing to count it as 3 syns as well!

    Well the slimming world four seasons cook book is wrong then, as chilli corn bread (using polenta as flour) is syn free according to that!! Yummy aswell!!

    However, I understand that these muffuns are probably more tempting to snack on so I think we may just have to have them as a treat rather than every day!!

    I made the vanilla muffins and they really are yummy. My husband likes them too and ate about 6 in one go!
    I just had one as I am worried about the syn value. I got 18 muffins from my batch, so that makes it about 2 1/2 syns each if they are synned.

    I used the cherry and almond recipe too, but instead of muffins I made a small loaf.
    We are going to have some this evening topped with cherry muller light! Yum!
    Chocolate cherry muller light will also be yum, just a little more "synful" ;)

    Hi Ruthie, I've been buying the polenta from Budgens, but I've been told Morrisons stock it as well, along with some health food shops.

    Hope you enjoy them, the banana and custard ones are my favourite so far!

    baking these as I type, are they meant to rise? After leaving them to stand for 20 mins the mix had got quite thick and they are just blobs in the bottom of the tin!

    Made these and they didnt rise much but the texture was good. Only problem was, they smelt delicious but tasted of nothing.

    very disappointed
