There is no starving yourself, no skipping meals, no missing out on treats, and no need to spend a fortune doing it! In fact snacking can help you LOSE WEIGHT as you don’t get so hungry that you end up overeating your main meals.
5 sweet snacks all WELL UNDER £1 per serve
With the 28 Day Weight Loss Challenge you can make SO MANY of the snacks for under a pound per serve. As you can see below, many of them are waaaaay below that. One is just 19p per serve!
Compared to the less-than-healthy desserts sold at the supermarket, this 28 Day Weight Loss Challenge cake is much better for you, and doesn’t compromise on taste.
Ingredients (Makes 2 servings)
2 tsp raisins (10 grams)
4 tsp brown rum, or use rum essence (20 mls)
1/2 cup plain wholemeal flour (60 grams)
1/2 tsp baking powder (1.25 grams)

1 tsp vanilla extract (5 mls)
1/2 cup water (125 mls)
1/2 cup reduced-fat coconut milk (120 mls)
40 grams dark chocolate (70%)
Soak raisins in the rum for 10 minutes.
Heat coconut milk, half the cocoa/cacao powder and the dark chocolate in a microwavable cup for a minute. Stir contents until smooth and heat for a further 30 seconds to a minute until warm and runny. Set aside.
Combine soaked raisins and rum with flour, baking powder, Natvia, remaining cocoa/cacao, vanilla extract and water and place in an individual ramekin (one per serve).
Microwave on high for 1 and 1⁄2 minutes, checking to see if cooked through. If not, cook for a further 30 seconds until cooked through.
