Baked oats, like these Low Syn Pear and Apple Baked Oats, are a favourite in our house; they are so versatile, the flavour possibilities are endless!
Until very recently, I had been avoiding using any cooked fruits in my baked oat recipes, as i was under the misconception that it was high in syns; I’ve since learned that the amounts needed to make delicious recipes like this, are in fact very low in syns, and I’ve been missing out!
Anyway.. those that know me, know that I’m a huge fan of cakes and puddings.. among my top 10 is the classic “Eve’s Pudding”; a traditional British pudding made using apples and Victoria sponge cake mixture, where by the apples are allowed to stew at the bottom of the baking dish while the cake mixture cooks on top.
Well, today I tried to recreate that scrummy flavour, with the addition of pear.
Not only are these Low Syn Pear and Apple Baked Oats a hearty breakfast, they could also be served as a dessert, or eaten at any point in the day for that matter, as its pure comfort food!
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.
Should I syn the sweetener in these Low Syn Apple and Pear Baked Oats?
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 these Low Syn Pear and Apple Baked Oats only uses 2 teaspoons of sweetener. That means there’s no need to add any syns on for the sweetener itself.
