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.

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 2 syns. 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.

Yes you can!

Sukrin Low Syn Chocolate and Orange Baked Oats | Slimming World

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.

Sukrin range Low Syn Chocolate and Orange Baked Oats | Slimming World

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.

You will find the Choc Shot Orange on Amazon

    1. Hi Evelyn,

      You could use any chocolate sauce/topping, I think they are generally around 2-4 syns per tablespoon depending on the brand, so the syn value will be a little higher (but check the SW app to be on the safe side). You could then just add a few drops of orange extract or essence to the sauce

  1. How would I heat it the following day, or from the freezer please. I’m hopeless at cooking times and temps sorry. Thank you,

    1. Hi Carla, thanks for getting in touch.
      We use individual ovenproof dishes for the baked oats. (The mixture could also be split between 2 or 3 ramekins.)

  2. If you were to freeze this, how would you recommend reheating? Would microwave be ok? If so how long for? Thanks x

    1. Hi Cat
      Yes microwaving is fine for reheating. The time would depend on the power of your microwave, an 800w would probably take a minute or so. Just make sure it’s hot all the way through before serving

    1. Hi Jayne
      Yes, you can make these in muffin cases or even a couple of ramekins. The cooking time would need to be reduced slightly, so just keep an eye on them to make sure they don’t burn. 🙂

    1. Hi Sharon
      Choc Shot is available from most supermarkets. It’s on the hot drinks aisle, with the teas, coffees and hot chocolates. 🙂

  3. How can you drizzle powder? Or should it be mixed with hot water?

    I know that sounds like a dull question but I can’t open the video.

    1. Hi Wendy
      Choc shot is a liquid chocolate syrup, sold in a squeezy bottle. You can use it to make hot chocolate drinks or for cooking. The recipe suggests that you drizzle from the bottle onto the finished dish. It’s available from most supermarkets on the hot drinks aisle.

    1. Hi Wendy
      The idea is to drizzle the choc shot syrup over the warm baked oats, so Options powder won’t really work, I’m afraid.

  4. Just made these for the first time. I didn’t have orange choc shot so I just used the normal one and a orange muller light with dark chocolate! It’s a welcome change! Yummy

  5. Just made this!! Absolutely lovely …. I’ve started keeping my HeB for the night time as that’s when I get a bit peckish – fab recipe x

  6. Hi there, this is becoming one of my favourite breakfasts but I’m trying to do a few SP days each week to help with my weight loss – is there an alternative to yoghurt I could use? I’ve seen some people say they use quark instead but just not sure I’m keen on the sound of it…

    1. Hi Nicola
      As you correctly pointed out, if you’re doing an SP day, you can’t use yogurt. Lots of people have used Quark instead. Why not give it a try! 🙂

  7. Have just made this – amazing! I only had the orange mullerlight yoghurt, plain not orange chocshot and no real oranges for zest but it didn’t matter. It was delicious – I’m struggling not to eat the other half straight away!

  8. Hi!
    Can I make this recipe the night before and then keep it in the fridge until the next morning and heat it back up in the microwave please?

    1. Hi Teresa
      If you scroll down to the recipe card you’ll find the quantities and measurements for all the ingredients. 🙂

    1. Hi Con
      The recipe has only been tested using whole eggs. I’m not sure what the outcome would be if you only used the whites. It could be worth a try if you’d prefer not to use the yolks.
