Nutri Brex - 5 ways to enjoy on slimming world

When I started slimming world and as I became more educated about the choices I was making, Granola was one of those foods that I found out was typically much higher in sugar and fat than originally believed. So, I put it on the ol' "block list" and skimmed past it when I saw it in supermarkets.

Nutri-Brex reached out to see if I'd like to try their granola and to come up with some fun ways to use it. They had two varieties: ‘HONEY, ALMONDS AND SEEDS’ and ‘HAZELNUT, COCONUT AND QUINOA’.



 This granola has 50% less sugar than typical granola, is high in fibre and is packed with superfoods (almonds & grains), it sounded appealing - but step one was to check it on the slimming world app. It was more than reasonable at just 5 syns per 25g, so I got the thinking cap on, and came up with 5 ways to use it with slimming world.


1. Breakfast Bowl with toasted granola - 4 syns


This is a comforting breakfast as we get into the colder months. Not to mention, your house will smell delicious with the toasty cinnamon filling the air.


  • Fruit of choice (I used banana, pears, blueberries and clementines)
  • Fat Free greek-style natural Yoghurt
  • Pinch of cinnamon powder
  • 20g Nutri-brex, honey, almonds and seeds.


  1. Spray a small frying pan with frylight
  2. Add the granola and the pinch of cinnamon
  3. Toast for 3/4 minutes until the granola is golden
  4. Slice fruit as desired and pop into a bowl
  5. Add a dollop of fat free greek toghurt
  6. Sprinkle the toasted granola on top and enjoy! 

2. Banana, Choc Shot and Granola Pops - 1.5 syns each


These are fun to make, ideal for a late night sweet treat. A decent substitute for an almond magnum :) if you have kids they will love these too.


Serves 4 | 1.5 syns per Pop

  • 2 Bananas
  • 25g Nutri-brex almond, honey and seeds granola (5 syns)
  • 4 tbsp Sweet Freedom Choc Shot (2 syns)


  1. Peel the bananas and cut in half. 
  2. Spread the choc shot onto a bowl or plate
  3. Gently roll the top of the banana into the choc shot, until evenly covered.
  4. Sprinkle the granola over the chocolate covered area.
  5. Place on a container, cover with cling film and put in the freezer for 3-4 hours.

3. Oaty Cinnamon Flapjacks - 1.5 syns each


For this recipe, regular oats make up the bulk of the recipe, with the granola acting as a crunchy topping. Enjoy these with a coffee as a breakfast, or an on the go snack.

  1. Preheat the oven to 180 degrees
  2. In a medium sized bowl, whisk the egg. Add the sweetener, vanilla essence and muller light and mix.
  3. Fold in the oats and cinnamon until well mixed.
  4. Spray a loaf tin with frylight or line with baking paper
  5. Pour in the mixture, ensuring an even spread
  6. Sprinkle the Nutri-brex evenly on top of the mixture
  7. Bake in the middle shelf for 20 mins or until golden brown.
  8. Allow to cool, cut into 4 rectangular pieces.

4. Overnight Oats, Fruit and Granola Jar - 2.5 syns


In the morning, the oats will have absorbed much of the yoghurt, and the granola crunch on top really packs a punch. This will give you a hearty and filling start to the day.

  1. Layer oats, yoghurt and fruit in that order. 
  2. Add Nutri-brex as your top layer
  3. Pop in the fridge overnight

5. Chocolate Crunch Pear Bites - 1.5 syns each


It's super simple to make these little bites, and they are a perfect snack if you are craving something sweet. Not to mention, pears are a speed food. Make sure your pears are nice and ripe, so that you don't lose a tooth :) 


  • 2 pears
  • 4 teaspoons of Sweet Freedom Choc Shot
  • 20g Nutri-Brex Granola


  1. Cut the two pear sides just off the middle to avoid the core.
  2. Add a teaspoon of crunchy granola to each
  3. Drizzle a teaspoon of choc shot on top.
