Here is a recipe I baked for a tasting session at group a few weeks ago, I thought id bake something yummy for my fellow slimmers to try. This recipe comes from “the slimming world cake lady” Facebook page – check her out shes got loads of recipes for low syn alternative to traditional cakes.
These fingers are yummy with a cup of tea and hit the spot when your craving chocolate.

All though these were really yummy and fun to make, Im not sure if I will make them again… I dont think the syn value is worth the effort…
