This Syn Free Baked Oats recipe has been amended to take into account the changes Slimming World have recently made to Healthy Extras and sweetener.
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 👍
With Slimming World’s heavy restrictions on the world of cereal (RIP mountainous Coco Pop breakfasts), it is really important to make the most of your Healthy Extra B in the mornings.
Like most meals on Extra Easy, the obvious solution is to chuck in an egg and some fruit and hope for the best. After a few stodgy messes, I have finally perfected my baked oat breakfast, which I am generous enough to share.
Please remember to count syns for cooked fruit. Consult the app for exact amounts.
I really love these baked oats for breakfast because it is so easy to mix up the flavours so you don’t get sick of the sight of it. Try your own flavour combo’s and let us know what you come up with! Here is a little bit of inspiration:
Strawberry and Chocolate
Use fresh strawberries in the mixture and add a squeeze of Sweet Freedom Choc Shot (count syns!) to serve
Add a handful of frozen summer fruits mix
Apple and Cinnamon
Grate a zingy apple into the mixture and add some cinnamon for a warming winter breakfast

Synning the sweetener
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.
We have amended the recipe for this Syn Free Baked Oats so it now uses 3/4 of a tablespoon of sweetener. This way it remains syn free.

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 Syn Free 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.
