As many of you know, I’ve been following the Slimming World plan for a while and so I’m always on the look out for low syn treats. I recently came across The Skinny Bakery on Instagram and their treats looked absolutely amazing. I was sent the ‘Not so Skinny’ box of treats and I can tell you, oh they’re good!
In the box of treats, I was sent Skinny Sweet Potato Brownies, Skinny Chocolate Pearls, Skinny Coconut Bites, Skinny Beetroot Pearls, Skinny Mini Flapjacks, Skinny Gingerbread Men, Double Chocolate Meringue Cookies and Skinny Choc Chip Cookies.
The treats from the Skinny Bakery are all low fat with less calories, less fat and less sugar. All the treats come in handy sized packages perfect for a little treat of an evening. It’s also good to know that the syn values for the Skinny Bakery treats are available on the SW app (and you can have a treat within your syns allowance).
All the treats are packaged beautifully and have full lists of ingredients on them. It’s wise to keep an eye on the best before dates (not that they would last that long!) but as they’re made from fresh ingredients you’ll want to eat them whilst they’re in prime condition.
My favourite treats from the selection were the Skinny Gingerbread Men. They were really tasty and only 5.5 syns for the 30g pack. They tasted just as good, if not better, than other gingerbread men I’ve eaten in the past.
I really liked the Skinny Mini Flapjacks too as they were sweet enough without being sickly. I also really enjoyed the Double Chocolate Meringue Cookies as they were light and had a lovely flavour.
I wasn’t so keen on the Skinny Beetroot Pearls or the Skinny Sweet Potato Brownies as I personally found them a little too earthy tasting but that’s just my preference.
Price wise, the treats from The Skinny Bakery are comparative to what you would pay in a health food shop for cake and you can get free delivery when you buy 5 or more items. I’m definitely going to be stocking up on the Gingerbread Men for a little evening treat.
