    I am in love with your blog!

    I was just calculating syns and I asked my consultant to double check for me and she said to syn, sultanas, baking powder, sweetener and vanilla extract and weetabix unless using as a hexb. Im really confused as I thought sweetener and vanilla were free? Hope you can clear it up for me! Cannot wait to try these! X
