The low calorie tortilla wraps are essential for making these Cheese and Onion Pasties. We used the Weight Watchers White Wraps to make these.

We’ve tried many low calorie wraps (Fitzgeralds, BFree), and the Weight Watchers ones are by far the best! They are the only wraps that we’ve found that crimp well, don’t split and actually stay stuck together.

That being said, if you need to make these gluten free you can substitute with a suitable wrap.  You could always roll them like our Sausage Rolls instead of crimping them!

How many calories are in these Cheese and Onion Pasties?

There are 330 calories in each pasty which saves some precious calories on a shop bought version. Best of all, these pasties are jam packed full of flavour!

These Cheese and Onion Pasties are perfect if you’re following a calorie controlled diet, and they fit well with any one of the major diet plans such as Weight Watchers.

As a guide, an average man needs around 2,500kcal (10,500kJ) a day to maintain a healthy body weight. For an average woman, that figure is around 2,000kcal (8,400kJ) a day. Obviously, if your goal is to lose weight then you might want to adjust these slightly! You can read more about these recommendations on the NHS website.
