Now I suppose the controversy with this cake is the cooking of the banana. As most people who follow Slimming World know, Slimming World say cooking fruit alters the filling power – it becomes non bulky and non filling, therefore it’s very easy to overeat. We all make our own decisions as to how we make the plan work for us just as we all choose how to spend syns when following the plan. In this recipe half of your banana is cooked and you can have the rest sliced on the side. You are still eating the banana! Also, the cooked banana when used as part of the recipe, combined with egg and Lo-Dough is very filling therefore I personally – and this is my personal opinion only would not syn the banana. I would just syn the other ingredients that are ‘synable’
I suppose this is considered a tweak, a cheat, blasphemy or whatever, but let’s face it, it’s half a banana being used as part of a delicious filling breakfast so I am going to crack on. No guilt included!
I would say to you however, your weightloss is your own journey. I am still on mine. Be your own person, find your own way and make your own decisions to protect your own weight loss journey.
