Low Syn Orange Marmalade Baked Oats

I started Slimming World 15 months ago. I’d been steadily putting on weight for over a decade and a friend suggested I join SW. She’d lost three stone, hit target and suggested I do the same, maybe I’d lose weight, maybe I’d make friends but it was absolutely worth a try.

Walking into class for the first time was incredibly scary, I thought I was the biggest person on the planet and everyone would laugh at me but the group couldn’t have been more welcoming, when I finally stood on the scales and I weighed more than 18 stone I realized that was it.

I couldn’t cross my legs, couldn’t get up the stairs without getting out of breath and exercise was beyond me. So I focused, really focused on following plan and started losing. Six pounds in my first week and then a little loss every week after that until I hit my first target of 3 stone.

Sadly for me I didn’t look like Angelina Jolie – not even close – so I lowered my target to 5 stone and focused again.

To get there I needed to up the exercise and do something I could really enjoy…I’d tried yoga but the other people relaxed too much and it was a very farty class – with me giggling all the way through so I started fencing and now I sword fight two hours a week entertaining the club with my silly leggings.

I dropped my target another stone and after 10 months and six stone gone I was about there, but it was really hard to stop, I was so used to food optimizing and I dropped my target one final time to 6 ½ stone. Those last few pounds took 2 very long months to get so my consultant and I agreed that it was the right weight for me and I’ve settled there, staying in target for almost 4 months now.

I love the generosity of heart in the SW family, we’re all here because we find it difficult to lose weight, it’s a total lifestyle change and cooking brings us all together.

I love to cook for class, friends and family – they’re all on this journey with me and I couldn’t have done it without their support and encouragement, plus their ‘helping’ taste new recipes as I try them even when I try to pass a chicken sausage off as a delicious ‘normal’ sausage!!

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 👍

To make a vegetarian version of this dish substitute the Muller Light for 175ml of Fat Free Natural yogurt flavoured with a drop of vanilla extract.

Synning the sweetener

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 Orange Marmalade 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.

Low Syn Orange Marmalade Baked Oats

We often get asked what sort of oats you can use and the answer is simple. We use regular, run of the mill porridge oats (pardon the rather awful pun!).

You don’t have to whisk the mixture either, just stir and pour into the oven proof dish. It really is that simple. You can even cook them the night before and heat them up in the morning. You can even freeze them.

The most important ingredient in this recipe is the orange zest, and it’s amazing just how much of an orange flavour it brings. I was surprised when I tasted the mixture to see if it needed orange extract, and it really doesn’t.

You need to use a very fine grater to get the best out of zesting your citrus fruits. We use the Oxo good grips fine grater, which you can buy over on Amazon. It’s also great for finely grating cheese, especially hard cheeses, and even chocolate. It really makes things go a lot further!

Apart from the orange zest, there are just 5 other ingredients. We have a Muller light Vanilla yogurt (or you can add 1tsp vanilla extract, 1 tsp sweetener to 175g of fat free natural yogurt), oats, eggs, Marmalade and Sukrin 1. It couldn’t be easier!

What is Sukrin?

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 these Low Syn Orange Marmalade 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.

  1. I made this but as a St Clements version with a small sprinkle of sweetner, lemon yoghurt, lime marmalade and orange zest – purely because that is what I had in my cupboards. I thought it was really tasty :o)
    Thank you for this recipe PON xx

  2. This is my favourite of the baked out recipes, because it’s more like a breakfast meal. I love the ‘tartness’ of the marmalade and the fact it tastes so decadent with the sauce, it’s very filling too; I shared mine with my teenage daughter (and she loved it) which meant I still had half an HEB left!

  3. Mines in the oven now for tomorrow’s breakfast. I added some muxed spice. I’ve never made baked oats before so I hope I like it

  4. Hi! I’m dying to make this cake but wouldn’t have time to bake it on a morning. Woukd it be okay to make the night before and eat cold? Or should I warm it through in the microwave the next morning? Thank you 🙂

    1. Hi Leanne
      We’ve had feedback from several people who have made these the night before. You should refrigerate overnight, then you can either eat them cold or reheat. Hope that helps.

  5. Hi. I finally tried the baked oats with a few blueberries and raspberries sprinkiled over them. I used a small amount of Canderell granulated and also didn’t have any muller light yoghurt. So, I used 0 percent fat quark and a tablespoon of semi skimmed milk. They were ok but a bit dry. I used one large egg, because I have high cholestoral. Also, I found the canderell wasn’t sweet enough. So, I’ll try it again another day with the Muller, more sweetener and two eggs. It was nice, but lacked taste and was way too dry. I’ll get it right eventually.
