How to Make Perfect Crispy Slimming World Chips – Syn Free Chips

slimming world syn free chipsMaking perfect Slimming World Syn Free Chips is a question which gets asked a lot in forums and Groups and one of the answers seems to get “get an Actify” but not everyone can afford an Actify which range from £100 – £250.

So how do you make perfect Slimming World Chips? well hopefully this recipe will answer that question for you and no you don’t need an expensive Actify :-) to make them.

The key is to ensure your chips are completely dried out after boiling for 4-6 minutes, this is really important to get the crispiness when you “rough up” the chips before baking.

Plus you need to sprinkle with sea salt before baking, turn after about 20 minutes, sprinkle with sea salt again and continue baking for around 20 minutes.

In reality they take about 40 minutes to cook properly and crisp up not 20-25 minutes though :-) so if you cannot afford or justify buying an Actify like me :-) here is how you make perfect Slimming World Syn Free Chips.
