A favourite Slimming World recipe of ours is Chocolate & Orange Cake. So we thought why not try this flavour out with baked oats. So here it is – Low Syn Chocolate and Orange Baked Oats.
For the full list of ingredients and comprehensive instructions, please see the recipe card at the end of this post. Before you scroll, there’s important stuff in the blurb 👍
A few weeks ago we posted a recipe for Bakewell Baked Oats, and we never expected them to be quite so popular, so we thought we’d try some other flavours.
How many Syns are in these Low Syn Chocolate and Orange Baked Oats?

Synning the sweetener in these Low Syn Chocolate and Orange Baked Oats
This recipe has been amended to take into account the new recommendations about synning sweetener. This will keep it 1 syn. If you want to add more sweetener then you should syn it at 0.5 syns per tablespoon.
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 Chocolate and Orange Baked Oats now uses 3/4 of a tablespoons of sweetener, so there’s no need to add any syns on for the sweetener itself.
You can use other sweeteners, nut they do vary in texture and sweetness so you may have to adjust the amount you use slightly.
Can I reheat and freeze these Low Syn Chocolate and Orange Baked Oats?
Yes you can!

What is Sukrin?
This post contains affiliate links. Find out what this means.
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 these Low Syn Chocolate and Orange 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.
That being said you don’t have to use Sukrin – there are lots of other high quality granulated sweeteners available from the supermarket, such as Canderel Sugarly, and Natvia.
