    BE CAREFUL – cous cous once baked is classed as a flour substitue and counts as Sins! In the directory it states if it is used as a flour substitute. which this is. then count the sins, our SW group had a big debate on this and i ended up contacting SW head office! They confirmed the cous cous would be counted if cooked in this way. (ie: baked after it has been made up with the boiling water). However, it is still a nice heavy “cake” to get those sweet pangs away but each sqaure (10 from a cake) would be about 3.5 sins! each! Sorry!! 🙂
