These Low Syn Rhubarb and Custard Overnight Oats is our latest variation of the good old Slimming World favourite.
Regular readers of our recipes, will probably know that it took us 21 weeks of Slimming World before we tried overnight oats. They were just something we never really fancied.
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 👍
However, once we did try them we were left wondering why we’d not tried them before.
Low Syn Rhubarb and Custard Overnight Oats
If you’ve seen our other overnight oats recipes, you’ll know that they’re not layered in the typical overnight oats sense.
We find that sometimes the oats can stay a bit dry, so we decided to layer it in a different way. On the bottom we have a layer of rhubarb (with a hint of ginger) which we mix in with the oats.
Next we have a ‘custard’ layer. This is made with half a banana & custard Muller Light, some Quark, some Sukrin Gold and some vanilla mixed with 1/2 tsp of chia seeds.
As Chia seeds can be used as your HEB we have adjusted the amount of oats used to incorporate the chia seeds within your HEB option. However, if you prefer to syn the chia seeds you can. They are 5 syns for 25g, so a teaspoon will probably work out around 1 syn.
We add Chia seeds in there to set the “custard” as they swell up when wet. Thus they set the “custard” layer & get a really nice set texture.
If you don’t have Chia seeds, you can leave them out and use 40g of oats.
Cooked Fruit and Slimming World
We all know that you should syn cooked fruit, but personally I don’t think that it’s worth the syns.
Having said that, cooked rhubarb is only 0.5 syns for 100g, and I think that’s quite reasonable. You can even have 500g of the stuff for your HEB (although not if you’re making this recipe, because your oats are your HEB.)

What is Sukrin?
Sukrin Gold 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 Rhubarb and Custard Overnight 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.
