Are Waffles High In Syns On Slimming World?

How Many Waffles Can I Have On Slimming World?

At 12.5 syns for a larger 7-inch sweet waffle, we would only recommend having one sweet waffle on the slimming world plan, for savory potato waffles you can have up to three 45g potato waffles before using all of your 15 syn daily allowance.
