Considering it was food that got us into a pickle with our weight… it’s kinda funny that GREAT food is what gets us out and back on track.
I’m not ashamed to admit I like food. I like good food and LOTS of it. Which is why it breaks my heart when I see people struggling to lose weight by near-starving themselves, or popping a pill or juice/shake for breakfast. I know, different strokes for different folks and all that… but ugh, I need my food! Now, over four stone lighter, I think I can safely say, SW’s food optimising works!
Sometimes though, we just need to ‘tweak’ our old ways. Take these waffles for example. This is just HALF a portion in this photo and a clever variation on a sugar-laden supermarket equivalent. Not forgetting they also taste great, look great – and set me up for the day ahead! I think I’m going to try these with bacon and eggs next time
Slimming World Waffles
- 35g oats (HexB)
- 1 egg
- 1 Muller Light – I used toffee flavour
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- 1 Muller Greek-style yoghurt – I used lemon flavour (1/2 syn)
- 1 tsp Sweet Freedom Choc Shot (1/2 syn)
- 1/4 tsp icing sugar (1/4 syn)
- Pre-heat (fan) oven to 180 degrees
- In a blender or food processor, blitz your oats until finely chopped
- Add one egg, Muller Light and 1 tsp of vanilla extract and blitz until blended together
- Lightly spray a silicone waffle mould with Fry Light and place on a baking tray
- Pour waffle mix into tray and bake for 10 minutes
- Flip waffles out of mould and onto baking tray and continue to cook for a further 10 minutes
- Sprinkle with icing sugar and serve with fruit and yoghurt. Drizzle with choc shot for added loveliness!!!
Slimming World Syns Values
If counting the oats as your HexB choice, this recipe (6 waffles!!!) would be 1.25 syns. I was kind and shared mine with Hubby
The strawberries and raspberries are both ‘Speed’ fruits.
What topping would you have on your waffles?
