Christmas is a fantastically foodie holiday, but being constantly surrounded by chocolate, cakes and biscuits can turn a tasty time of year into a test of temptation. The good news is that Slimming World members don’t have to miss out on a single magical morsel. We’re all about keeping the seasonal treats that you enjoy – and giving them a Slimming World twist!

We love to see what our members are making to keep them slimming through the festive season, and Sarah’s scrummy Slimming World mince pies and spiced muffins definitely caught our eye.

Sarah has lost an amazing 3st since becoming a Slimming World group member, and is now a master of the flavoured oaty muffin! Choose between apple & cinnamon or Slimming World mince pie muffins – or give both a try (why not, it’s Christmas!). They’ll bring a festive feel to any breakfast table or lunch box – and they go down lovely with a nice cup of tea.

Santa might even appreciate a couple of Slimming World mince pies leaving out on Christmas eve as a healthier option!
