Our List Of The Best Low Syn Yorkshire Pudding Recipes

Yorkshire puddings are an essential part of a roast dinner, but traditional Yorkshire puddings can be a source of high syns if you are not careful and make your roast dinner unhealthy. 

Our List Of The Best Low Syn Yorkshire Pudding Recipes

To help you stay on track with your syns and enjoy your Yorkshire puddings without the guilt, we've made a list of our top Yorkshire puddings recipes below which are Slimming World friendly and low in syns. 

How Many Syns Do Regular Yorkshire Puddings Have? 

To start with, let's discuss the syns in regular Yorkshire puddings to see just how unhealthy these puddings can be on the Slimming World plan. 

Syns can vary in Yorkshires due to size, however, for the average-sized Yorkshire pudding, you are looking at using around 5 syns per pudding making them high in syns! 

You could have up to three average-sized Yorkshires before using all your 15 syn daily allowance on the plan.

How Do I Make Yorkshire Puddings Slimming World Friendly? 

Most of the time, the syns in Yorkshire puddings come from ingredients such as egg, butter, milk and flour. 

You can make these Yorkshires healthier however by having control over the fat content and oil content. Swaps could be using low-calorie cooking spray instead of regular oil and semi-skimmed milk instead of full fat milk which adds to the syns.

Final Words 

To conclude, Yorkshire puddings can often be high in syns, not because of the ingredients, but mainly due to the oil they are cooked in, the combination of milk which is full fat can also raise calories. 

We suggest making your Yorkshires at home with basic ingredients like milk as your healthy extra A (find our healthy extra A list here) and the recipes above so as you can save syns or try hacks such as turning oats into flour.
