    as a b choice you're allowed 28g porridge oats + 1 scan bran.

    i broke it up into tiny pieces and cooked with the porridge and added a bit of sweetener - it was lovely :eat:. anyone know of any more ways we can get this down without eating it as it comes lol!!!

    Hiya curly girl scan bran is 85% bran and resembles ply wood and is very good at making you go to the toilet should you be blocked up.:D

    This is what they look like you can buy them from Holland & Barratt Scan Bran on Flickr - Photo Sharing!

    Hi,

    I have only ever had this in the normal way, and found it hard going....when I used to come home for lunch when I worked near home, I used to have to really rush to get it all down before I had to be back an hour later!!!!

    Hi Girls - I've posted a recipe of Scotch Eggs - Free on red days using the dreaded scan bran!! Got this from class a few months ago - but havent tried making them yet - although a few ppl in the group said they had made them and they (apparently!) were really nice. And a good way of eating the scan bran without feeling like chewing cardboard!!
    Syn-free Scotch eggs​

    Free on red​


    Shape sausage meat from Morrison’s Eat Smart Diet pork sausages around 1 hard-boiled egg, making sure that the egg is covered. Crush a Scan Bran with a rolling pin. Roll the covered egg in the crumbs until evenly coated. Bake in a pre-heated oven at 180ºC for about 25 minutes. Use the Scan Bran as a Healthy Extra ‘b’ choice for a Free snack on Original, or count ½ Syn per crisp-bread used.



    ENJOY!!! Laura, xxx

Hope I exlained that ok.:D

    You could crush them up and put into a bowl of low fat natural yogurt but add sweetner as the yogurt tastes really bitter otherwise. Maybe im weird but I actually like the scanbrans as they are and I use as biscuits to dip into my tea or coffee.lol.

    I think the only way you could make them palatable would be to smother them in butter! :eek: :D

    I toast them to make it a little crispier, then maybe put some thin slices of cheese on top (from my HexA of course). I also use them in the recipes (i.e. cakes, etc) and it works really well in that context. But I agree, eating them straight out of the packet is like trying to eat turf!

    I only use them to make cakes - they look too much like cardboard for me to eat one on its own.

    I eat a piece of scan bran cake most days, I love it.
    I also like scan bran with sliced banana on top.
