Scan bran
I actually really like scan bran! I have it with scrambled eggs, smoked salmon and sautéed veg. I also love all the different cakes. Love it or hate it, it’s a great source of fibre and keeps you full for hours and hours!!!!!!!! Theres so much you can do with it, from cakes to savoury snacks. If your weight loss needs a boost, this could be what you’re missing. Available in all slimming world groups. The cake in the first pic and the college pic was inspired by my very good friend J. It’s a skinny cappuccino cake, all for only 3 syns if you count the 5 scan bran as a HEB. It’s just 5 scan bran broken up and soaked in boiling water, drain off any excess. Add 3 syns worth of choc shot (6 teaspoons), sweetener. I added 3 tbs but I think it needed more. Add a skinny cappuccino muller lite yogurt and 2 eggs. Microwave for 7 minutes or until the cake comes away from the tub. It was really nice with fruit. There’s more recipes below. One is the basic cake recipe, you can vary the yogurt flavour or try adding different flavoured essence the other, the mega popular scan bran scotch eggs! Scan bran even has it’s own fb page if you’d like more ideas.  Enjoy 🙂

Hard boil 5 eggs. Cool in running water, then take off the shells.
Skin the sausages, cut through skin lengthways and take out the meat.
Using a little of the flour to dust hands, take 1½ sausages and roll into a ball. Then press out to 4½” diameter.
Place a boiled egg in the centre and form the meat around the egg to cover it completely.
Repeat until all 5 are covered.
Beat the 3 eggs in a basin for the coating.

Dip the meat-covered eggs into the beaten eggs and then into the crushed Scan Bran.
Place on a baking tray, spray the scotch eggs with low calorie cooking spray and cook in the oven for approximately 15/20 minutes at 200°C/180°C Fan/Gas Mark 6.
