Ferrero Rocher

I absolutely love Ferrero Rocher, they are one of my all time favourite treats. These are so easy to make and much lower in syns compared to the real thing!

Serves: 16

Syns: 2 Syns each

Time Taken: 1o minutes, plus chilling time

Difficulty: Easy


  • 3 Weetabix
  • 5 level table spoons of Nutella
  • One Options hot chocolate sachet (flavour of your choice) for dusting


Mix your Weetabix and Nutella together.

Roll your mixture up into Ferrero Rocher sized balls and then roll in the hot chocolate powder. The mixture can be quite sticky so it is worthwhile dusting your hands with hot chocolate before rolling each ball.

Place into mini cake cases and leave to stand in the fridge for at least one hour.


Coconut Macaroons

These coconut macaroons are absolutely divine! Crunchy on the outside with a soft and chewy interior. Perfect sweet tooth fix.

Makes: 30 portions

Syns: 2 syns each

Time Taken: 30 minutes

Difficulty: Easy


  • 4 egg whites
  • 198g sugar
  • 71g desiccated coconut


Beat the egg whites until frothy (Make sure no yolk whatsoever has contaminated the egg whites, otherwise you could be whisking for ever!) Add the sugar and beat until stiff.

Fold in the coconut, put mixture into a piping bag with a star nozzle and pipe 30 macaroons onto a parchment covered baking sheet.

Bake for 30 minutes in a preheated oven (170ºC/150ºC Fan/Gas Mark 3).

Remove from oven, and allow to cool for a few minutes before removing them from the baking sheet.

Quark Pancake

I know this may sound like a weird combination, but it tastes lovely when topped with fruit. It is so low in syns that you don’t have to feel guilty about having a couple or more!

Serves: 1

Syns: 0.5 syn

Time Taken: 10 minutes

Difficulty: Easy


  • 1 egg
  • 1 tablespoon Quark
  • 1 tablespoon sweetener
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract


Crack the egg in a cup and mix it with the Quark, sweetener and vanilla. Try not to over mix as the Quark will make the pancake thicker!

In a frying pan, spray a low calorie spray oil and add the pancake mix. Cook on a low heat for a few minutes before flipping the pancake. Do be patient, try not to flip it too soon.
