Almost Syn Free Apple Crumble Cheesecake - Slimming World - 1 Syn Per Slice - Autumn Recipe

Almost Syn Free Apple Crumble Cheesecake

If you ask me, it’s pretty hard to beat proper cheesecake for just 1 syn per slice! This is nothing like your average Slimming World cheesecake, which tends to be like yogurt jelly (with no cheese in sight!), this is a PROPER cheesecake, just like my much loved ‘Syn Free No Bake Berry Cheesecake‘! This cheesecake is just 1 syn per slice, which comes from the cooked apple used in the base, and each slice is half of your Healthy Extra B and just a third of your Healthy Extra A!

Full of autumnal flavours this is perfect as the weather turns colder, I’ve bought the flavours and textures of a classic apple crumble and mixed them with an utterly amazing cheesecake…and boy does it work! Technically you could count a slice of this as as syn free, if you want to work out how much extra the cooked apple could add to your HexB, but frankly I can’t do the maths and I think one syn is pretty awesome!

Slimming World is the best, and only diet, I will need to be on in my life, because it’s not a diet! Name me one other healthy eating plan where you can eat a cheesecake like this….you can’t! By using part of your Healthy Extras you can eat cheesecake without any guilt whatsoever, which is pretty amazing if you ask me. Slimming World has built the plan in such a way that you never once feel like you’re on a diet, it’s a lifestyle plan which you can absolutely be on for the rest of your life. It’s a plan that can help you lose the weight that you need to lose, and help you stay there when you’ve reached your target. I’ve been struggling recently, but I know that Slimming World, and the plan that it has created, will always be there to help get me back on track! It’s an amazing feeling! Hopefully this cheesecake can help you stay on track when you need something sweet, make it, keep it in the fridge all week and indulge without going off plan…ENJOY!

  • 175g Oats
  • 250g Peeled & Chopped Apple (for the base)
  • 1tbsp Water
  • 2tbsp Sukrin Gold (if you can't use this then regular sweetener will work, if using regular sweetener then add to your taste)
  • 25g Flora Light
  • 1x Peeled & Chopped Apple (for the filling)
  • 1x Chopped Apple (for the garnish)
  • 2x 180g Pots Philadelphia Lightest
  • 1x 250g Pot Quark
  • 200g Sukrin Melis Icing Sugar (again if you don't have this use regular sweetener, but this works best! If using regular sweetener then add to your taste)
  • 1.5x Pack Powdered Gelatin (12.5g packets) (plus 100mls boiling water)
  • 2tsp Vanilla Extract
  • 2tsp Ground Cinnamon (plus extra for dusting)
  • 1/2tsp Ground Ginger


    For the BaseAdd the 250g of peeled & chopped apple to a saucepan with a tablespoon of water over a medium heat. Stir and when it begins to break down add the Sukrin Gold. When the apple is almost all stewed, with a few bigger bits left, remove from the heat.
  1. Melt the Flora Light in the microwave (using a microwave safe bowl).
  2. Add the melted butter and stewed apple to the oats and mix together.
  3. Press the mixture evenly into a 12 inch cake tin.
  4. For the FillingDissolve the gelatin in 100mls of boiling water. Allow to cool.
  5. Whisk together the cream cheese and quark, with the vanilla extract, ground ginger and cinnamon and the Sukrin Melis Icing Sugar.
  6. Whisk the gelatin into the cheesecake mix.
  7. Stir in the chopped apple for the filling and then tip over the base. Refrigerate for at least five hours, or over night.
  8. When you're ready to eat the cheesecake, remove from the cake tin, garnish with more chopped apple and cinnamon and serve!


1 syn per slice when cut into 10 slices, using half of your daily Healthy Extra B and a third of your Healthy Extra A. Note, some people have decided to start synning sweetener in larger quantities. Personally I don't do this as it has never effected my weight loss, but feel free if you want to.

      Hi Rachel, thanks for your comment! It would be 6 syns a slice if not used as your healthy extras! Still pretty great for a piece of cheesecake ?

    Hi! We have a taster session at Slimming World this week and I'm thinking of taking this. Our leader suggested crudités and dips, but I would much rather have cheesecake! I was just wondering what type of apples you used, were they cooking or eating apples? Thanks

      I always take a nice big cheesecake to taster nights! People love it ? I used regular apples for it as they're sweeter and as its not a baked cheesecake that makes it much better! Good luck!

    This looks amazing! I'd like to use this recipe with normal sugar though. Can you advise how much normal sugar I'd use in the base and do in the filling please?
    1. Cliona

      25/01/2017 at 4:43 pm

      Hi Lynette, you can substitute sukrin 1:1 so the quantities would be the same ?

    Thanks for this recipe, it looks great but do you know if I can swap the cheese for more quark or thick yogurt? The only cheese I can handle is quark as I don’t like cheese. Thank you x

      I'm not sure if you'd get the same consistency but it's worth a try! Let me know how you get on :)

    Hi this is probably a daft question but is this recipe suitable for vegetarians it looks really good Thank you
    1. Cliona

      05/05/2020 at 11:53 am

      Hi Naz, it is except you would need to use vegetarian gelatin which I haven't done myself. Because I haven't tried it I can't advise on how you would swap between the two but I'm sure there are handy guides out online to help. Let me know if you do!

    I tried to make this and it went horribly wrong! It didn't set and was a big sloppy mess :-(

      Hi Louise, let me see if I can help you find out why. Can I ask what geletine you used?
