Synning the sweetener in these Low Syn Lemon & Blueberry 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 it’s 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 Lemon & Blueberry Baked Oats uses 3/4 of a tablespoons of sweetener, so there’s no need to add any syns on for the sweetener itself.

The only thing that will cost you syns, if you use the oats as your HEB, is the cooked blueberries. So use as few or as many as you like, just remember to syn it accordingly – 2 syns for 100g.

This Low Syn Lemon & Blueberry Baked Oats recipe has also been amended to take into account the recent changes to HEBs.

What is Sukrin?

You don’t need to use Sukrin, you can use ANY sweetener.

This post contains affiliate links. Find out what this means.

You can use other brands of sweetener, but they do vary in texture and sweetness, so you will need to adjust the quantity slightly.

We use Sukrin 1 which is an all-natural granulated stevia sweetener alternative to sugar with zero calories. You can grab Sukrin 1 over onAmazon UK.

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 Lemon & Blueberry 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.

Can you freeze these Low Syn Lemon & Blueberry Baked Oats?

Yes you can! Just make sure to cool, then freeze.

You can even keep these Low Syn Lemon & Blueberry Baked Oats in the fridge overnight and re-heat them in the morning.

  1. I love love love all the varieties of baked oats.
    I usually make a dish and make it last 3 days as l serve it with loads of fruit.
    Really filling and adaptable recipe.

  2. Made this today for the first time. Not too keen on sweet things so left sweetener out and substituted the yogurt for 100g quark as like the consistency it gives. Omg absolutely delicious cannot wait til breakfast tomorrow so I can have it again ! Usually make my baked oats with finely grated carrot and cinnamon but this new combination has to be my favourite by far x

    1. Hi Pam
      The oats are just normal run of the mill porridge oats, so you can get them anywhere, just make sure they don’t have anything added

  3. Hi I’m not a fan of porridge as indont like the texture. These baked oats look lovely, I’m just wondering, when baked is it just like porridge? Thanks

  4. I’m really keen to try this, but when I try to print it by clicking on the print button I’m getting a big red screen on my pc saying that it’s been reported to Microsoft that the website is dangerous and may be trying to steal my personal or financial info. I’ve been trying to copy and paste instead so I can print, but the website won’t let me. Any ideas?

    1. Can I use a muller light orange sprinkled with dark chocolate yogurt instead of the vanilla yogurt and not use any sugar..?
      Would the syn value be the same..?

      1. Hi Dawn,

        You could do this, but you’d need to check the Syn value of the yoghurt. It may still need some extra sweetener depending on your taste 😊

  5. Hi, love the look of this recipe and can’t wait to try it! Might be a silly question but do you think it would last in the freezer? I want to cook a big batch without eating it all at once!! Obviously I could just cook a smaller one or half the recipe but it’s more economical to cook a bigger cake I think 😊 Thank you!

    1. Hi Isabel,

      The size of the dish really depends on how many portions you are making – these can either be made in small, single serving dishes (around 2 inches deep) or larger oven proof dishes if you’re making more than one portion at a time.

      Hope that helps!

    1. Hi Ciara
      Yes! The 40g oats used in this recipe are your HEb choice. The recipe amounts listed make one portion. You could make it in two ramekins and have one immediately, then the other later in the day, if you wanted to!

    1. Hi Jade
      The recipe is for one portion, as shown on the recipe card at the bottom of the page.
      It uses 40g oats, which is a Healthy Extra B choice. 🙂

  6. Hi
    Making these now however you say you don’t need to count the syn’s for the sweetner. But this is for 1 serving and there’s 3/4 tablespoons in there. Shouldn’t it be adding 0.5 per tablespoon ?

    1. Hi Bee
      This is taken from the blurb in the recipe;

      ‘Where there is 1 tbsp or more being used per serving it’s 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 Lemon & Blueberry Baked Oats uses 3/4 of a tablespoons of sweetener, so there’s no need to add any syns on for the sweetener itself.’

      Hope this clarifies things for you. 🙂

    1. Hi Kirsty
      You could use an HEB portion of oat bran, but you’ll probably need to add a little more liquid, as the oat bran is much more absorbent.

    1. Hi Nikki
      You could certainly try using the lemon yogurt, but it won’t have the same ‘zing’ that you get from the fresh lemon zest and juice. 🙂

  7. Thanks Janie. I used a lemon yoghurt and chopped up a small eating apple, instead of the blueberries. It tasted just like Eve’s Pudding – very nice indeed!

  8. Hi- two eggs seems a lot for one portion- I hate anything sweet which is eggy – could you use two chicks egg whites or one egg? Thanks!

    1. Hi Su
      On the recipe card we do state 2 eggs or 1 egg depending on the consistency you prefer. Try the recipe with one egg and see what you think. 🙂

  9. Trying to make this as we speak. Just weighed up 40g of oats. Surely thats not gunna make a whole cake? Im really confused or am i being dumb lol?

  10. Just made this for breakfast but omitted the sweetener and used frozen blueberries it was delicious. It was like having a pudding for breakfast! Will certainly be making again.😋

  11. With the fruit is it 50g of any fruit for 1 syn? I’m thinking of trying with raspberries just wondered if I have to alter the weight? Thanks

  12. Just made these for the second time, I absolutely love them. I only use 1 egg though but add a dash of skimmed milk. Plus I use half blueberries and half raspberries. Absolutely delicious!

  13. Omg omg loving this recipe going to try various fruit and syn accordingly I use a loaf tin and I cannot believe this is for 1 person I don’t use for brekki .I use throughout the day with acuppa some yogurt and fruit on side my lifesaver.

    Thank you so much for your efforts and time on this website loving the recipees

    Bernie Dublin..😁😁

    1. Hi Debbie
      Yes, you can use Fat Free Natural Yogurt instead of Muller light. Remember to double check the Syn value, though.

  14. Hi Janie
    Can I use my healthy a milk instead of yoghurt as I don’t like yoghurt and struggle to use my healthy a.

    1. Hi Yvonne
      That would be fine. You may need to experiment with how much milk to add, as the consistency will be different when you use milk. Let us know how you get on. 🙂

  15. If I make this using the 40g oats but not using the HEB, how many Syns for this please? I don’t have any ramakins so was going to split between dimples in a muffin tin to make mini ones. I already have breakfast planned for tomorrow with cereal for HEB so wanted to know how Syn-ful these would be. Thanks x

    1. Hi Amy
      If you scroll down to look on the recipe card, we always give Syn values for any ingredient that has Syns. In this case, it’s 40g for HEB or 7 Syns.

  16. Hi can you use frozen blueberries in this recipe. Also would 50g frozen be equivalent to 50g fresh. Thanks x

    1. Hi Brigette
      The recipe card lists a full 175g pot of Muller Light, but I often use a little bit less as I like a slightly more cakey texture. 🙂

  17. I’m so confused by sweetener and syn values. If I follow the recipe above using 3/4 tablespoons of sweetener, this is free?

    1. Hi Judi
      We explain this in the recipe blurb;

      Where there is 1 tbsp or more being used per serving it’s 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 Lemon & Blueberry Baked Oats uses 3/4 of a tablespoons of sweetener, so there’s no need to add any syns on for the sweetener itself.

      Thanks for getting in touch!

    1. Hi Nadia
      We know that lots of people use quark instead of yogurt in baked oats, particularly those following SP days. It should be fine! 🙂

  18. Hi, I love your recipes and have had many successes with them. I have downloaded the little ebook, but have noticed that the recipes do not have syn values, Please could you tell me the syn value for the peanut butter brownies.

    Thank you

    1. Hi Jane
      You need to work out the Syns for each ingredient, them total up and divide by the number of servings. I calculated them to be 2.6 Syns per piece. We would recommend rounding up to 3 Syns per brownie to protect losses.
      Thanks for getting in touch!

  19. Hi,
    If I make this the night before and re-heat it, how long should it stay in the oven? I don’t have a microwave.
    Or could I mix the ingredients and refrigerate them raw to cook in the morning?
    Thank you.

    1. It may work better to mix and keep raw ready to cook in the morning. Reheating in the oven would likely dry it out too much 🙂
