Slimming World Scone Recipe – with ‘Clotted Cream’!

These Slimming World scones are easy to make with minimal ingredients and just 5.5 syns INCLUDING jam (or lemon curd) and my version of ‘clotted cream’. They are perfect for a traditionally English afternoon tea without all the guilt and a great way to celebrate a birthday or any other type of celebration.

As a Slimming World consultant, I am well aware that many of my members miss many things which aren’t so great for you. One of those things is a traditional cream tea with scones, jam and cream. I miss it too. So I wanted to come up with a way to enjoy this very British way of eating without the guilt.

Did you know that a plain scone alone can contain 12.5 syns. If you are on a maximum of 15 syns per day then you have almost reached your daily quota already. That’s without the clotted cream and jam! Those things will add on a further 5 syns taking you over your daily allowance.

Instead, how about a scone with all the flavour and less of the syns? Extremely similar to a regular scone and, I have to say, after eating one of these beauties I didn’t have that horrible ‘uncomfortably full’ feeling you can get after eating something stodgy.

When your other half comes up to you and says ‘what on earth did you put in those scones?’ and I reply with ‘Why? What is wrong’ and he responds with ‘They are the best scones I have EVER had in my life!’ (in a serious voice) then you know they are good!

How to make slimming world scones and Cream

You can find a printable version of this recipe further down in this post.

Makes 4 at 4 syns each (5.5 syns including ‘Clotted Cream’)

Ingredients – for the Scones

  • 100g of self-raising flour
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tbsp granulated sweetner
  • 1 tsp vanilla essence
  • Around 4 tbsp Fat Free Fromage Frais – enough to bind into a dough

For the ‘Clotted Cream’

  • 25g Asda 50% Light Soft Cheese (or similar)
  • 15g Fat Free Fromage Frais
  • 1 tbsp granulated sweetener

Method

  • Mix dry ingredients together
  • Add vanilla essence
  • Add the fromage frais little by little and combine to make a dough with as little mixing as possible
  • Divide mixture into 4 and roll into balls then flatten to form a scone shape
  • Place well spaced out on a baking tray lined with foil
  • Score each round deeply into quarters
  • Bake at Gas Mark 7 for around 15 minutes, or until golden & hollow sounding when tapped
  • Mix together all the ingredients for the ‘Clotted Cream’ and chill
  • Leave the scones to cool and then top with reduced sugar raspberry jam (0.5 syns) or lemon curd (0.5 syns) and the Slimming World ‘Clotted Cream’

I can safely say that these are totally worth it. Minimum effort with maximum taste. These days, I find real cream too reach but the creaminess of the soft cheese mixed with fromage frais and sweetner is enough to curb any craving for clotted cream and far less rich in taste too.

  1. These are fantastic. If you add more fromage frais so the texture is really sticky when you roll it, and some dried mixed fruit, they come out like teacakes

    1. I am lactose intolerant- any ideas if there would be a good substitute for the fromage frais?
