Low Syn Cheese Scones | Slimming World Recipe

Oh my… it’s definitely true that we never go without when following the Slimming World Plan! These cheese scones are a must try.. they are amazing!! They do have a slightly different texture to a standard scone but they are really tasty and cheesy too.

You don’t need anything fancy to make these scones, just a standard baking tray, a bowl and the enthusiasm to bake. 

The most important thing to remember when making scones is to work the dough as little as possible.  It is the exact opposite of breadmaking, where lots of kneading makes for an excellent loaf.

Recent Update: Because Smash is now Synned and we are using Smash as an alternative to flour we need to allow a lot more Syns for these scones.. sadly they are now worth 2.5 Syns per scone… 🙁 BUT they are still a delicious treat!

  1. They were lovely but not syn free! Smash is now synned and should be counted the same as flour as it’s not made up with water.

    1. The recipe has now been updated 🙂 I am gradually working through the site checking for recent Syn changes 🙂 At 1 Syn each they are still pretty amazing.

    1. The same amount of flour would 16 syns so i wouldn’t recommend it.. also i don’t know how much flour would be needed to create these compared to the smash i have not tried it.

  2. Have you worked out a sweet / plain scone recipe? SW used to have one but I just can’t find one anywhere. Really want to have a cream tea for low syns!

    1. It’s not as easy because flour is very high in syns 🙂 I will have a look when I am next with my baking hat on x

  3. What about trying it with oats 40g blended is your hb choice just a suggestion not made any yet but I’m going to for our next taster x
