If you are a lover of scones and a cuppa tea, you might be wondering if it's okay to eat them in a slimming world and still lose weight?
Fruit scones have around 12-15 syns depending on the brand you buy and the fruit they have mixed in, making them very high in syns, they should only be eaten in moderation on the slimming world plan.
To keep you on track while enjoying your scones, we've put together a small guide below which will take you through why scones are so high in syns, some syn values of scones from different brands as well as how to make your own SW friendly scones.
Scones have around 12-15 syns depending on the type you buy using most of your daily syn allowance for the day, excluding any fillings such as cream or jam.
These treats get their high syn value from the butter and sugar content inside which adds to the high-fat value, some scones can even have up to 14g of fat for just one scone.
This doesn't mean scones can't be enjoyed on the slimming world diet however as long as you factor them into your syns as well as the fillings inside of them.
As we mentioned above, the syn values of your scones will vary according to the brand that you buy due to different fat and sugar contents as well as types of fruits inside.
