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.’
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 👍
Now obviously this wouldn’t be very Slimming World friendly. With all that pastry, custard and coconut the syns would add up. We’ve tried to recreate those flavours, but in a slightly more healthy way.
This Low Syn Manchester Tart Baked Oats calls for a coconut and vanilla yogurt, so you can either use a Greek Style Coconut & Vanilla Yogurt Muller Light or an Aldi Brooklea Fat Free Coconut & Vanilla Greek Style Yogurt which is also Syn free.
This recipe for Baked Oats is incredibly easy, just throw it all into a bowl and stir. If you want you can make it the night before and reheat it or eat it cold in the morning. You can even make a batch and freeze them.
And if you’re doing an SP day you could even substitute the yogurt for Quark with some coconut and vanilla essence added, but, as quark is thicker than yoghurt you will have to add some extra or the oats may be too dry.

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?

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.
