Low Syn Manchester Tart Baked Oats| Slimming World

Baked Oats seem to have become really popular lately. Since we first posted the Bakewell Baked Oats recipe, and seeing just how popular they are, we decided to try our hand a few other flavours. The next on our list was this one…..Low Syn Manchester Tart Baked Oats.

If you’re not aware of what a Manchester Tart is let me tell you.

Manchester tart is a traditional baked tart consisting of a shortcrust pastry shell, spread with raspberry jam, covered with a custard filling and topped with flakes of coconut. It’s very popular ‘up North.’

Synning the sweetener

This recipe has been amended to take into account the new recommendations about synning sweetener. This will keep it 1.5 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 Manchester Tart 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.

What is Sukrin?

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

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 Manchester Tart 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.

    Definitely only need a half portion and next to time I’ll top with some raspberries… delicious 😀

    1. Hi Veronica
      Really glad you enjoyed this recipe! You could make it in two smaller ramekins, so that you could enjoy one straight away and save the second to have as a snack!

  3. I love baked oats & Manchester Tart is one of my favourite 😍 I also add 4g of dessicated coconut for 1 extra syn as I love the extra nutty “bite” it gives the end product, love your recipes ladies, thanks so much 👍🏻

  4. Hi there
    Do you suppose this recipe would work with soya yogurt as I have a dairy intolerance?
    Thank you Christine.

    1. Hi Vanessa
      If you scroll down to the recipe card, you’ll see it’s 1 portion, using 40g oats which is your HEB choice. 🙂

    1. Hi Gemma
      We hear from many people in the Facebook group who bake these the night before and reheat the following morning. 🙂
