This Low Syn ‘Bounty’ Baked Oats recipe has been amended following the changes Slimming World have made regarding sweeteners (see below for details) and some Healthy Extras.
Ever since the news broke about the new Slimming World Hi-Fi bars being Coconut Macaroon, I’ve been craving a Bounty! I refuse to relent and syn one as they’re pretty high in syns. Do you ever feel that sometimes you’d rather spend your syns on something else, like wine? I digress! Here’s our Low Syn ‘Bounty’ Baked Oats recipe.
We’ve made a few different types of baked oats over the last few weeks, and they’ve gone down a storm, so we thought we’d add to the list.
We often get asked what sort of oats you can use and the answer is simple. We use regular, run of the mill porridge oats (pardon the rather awful pun!).
You don’t have to whisk the mixture either, just stir and pour into the oven proof dish. It really is that simple. You can even cook them the night before and heat them up in the morning. You can even freeze them.

The coconut Muller yogurts are 1/2 a syn a pot, and we just top the rest up with natural yogurt. If you didn’t want to spend the 1/2 a syn, you could use some coconut flavouring mixed in with some natural yogurt instead or you could use an Aldi Brooklea Fat Free Coconut & Vanilla Greek Style Yogurt, which is syn free.
We think Choc Shot is amazing, and is something that features in my hot chocolate every day! It’s just 1/2 a syn a teaspoon and very, very chocolatey.
You can get Choc Shot from a whole heap of places including most of the major supermarkets and Holland & Barret. The Coconut Choc Shot is available in Sainsbury’s and just happens to be on offer at the moment! If you can’t find it at the supermarket then you can get it over on Amazon.
What is Sukrin?
Sukrin 1 doesn’t have that strange after taste that a lot of artificial sweeteners do! It also shares the exact same sweetness and weight to sugar – which makes it really easy to substitute in recipes like this Low Syn ‘Bounty’ Baked Oats.
If you are using a powdered sweetener, then please check how it compares to sugar. In some cases you’ll need to use less, as powdered sweeteners weigh less.
Synning the sweetener
As you will probably know Slimming World have brought out some new recommendations regarding the syn value of granulated sweeteners. Slimming World have confirmed what this change means.
Where there is 1 tbsp or more being used per serving they recommend members count 0.5 Syn per tbsp. If using smaller amounts, like a pinch or teaspoon, there’s no need to worry about Syns at all.
The recipe for this Low Syn ‘Bounty’ Baked Oats now uses 3/4 of a tablespoon of sweetener to keep it at 1.5 syns. That way there’s no need to add any syns on for the sweetener itself. If you want to add more sweetener then you should add 0.5 syns on per tablespoon.
