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.

Syn Free Baked Oats

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

Summer Fruits

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.

This post contains affiliate links. Find out what this means.
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.

Syn Free Baked Oats

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.

  1. Add all of the ingredients, apart from the milk, to a small oven proof ramekin. I tend to use small Le Creuset dishes.
  2. Mix it up with your finest spoon (elbow grease required).
  3. If you think the mixture is looking a little too cement-like, add a little splosh of milk (taken out of your Healthy option A allowance) to loosen.
  4. If you wish to flavour your oats, please add fruit and spices at this point. Get creative, count syns.
  5. Place on a baking tray (the mixture tends to rise and we don't want to clean the oven, thank you very much) and bake on about 180 (fan) for 35-40 minutes.

    1. Hello Meg, thanks for your comment.
      The recipe listing is for Baked Oats. There are several reminders in the recipe write up that you’ll need to syn cooked fruit, if you choose to add it.
      The ingredients list doesn’t include fruit for this reason, only the basic oats, yogurt, egg, vanilla essence and sweetener.
      There’s also a caption underneath the photograph which states ‘Please remember to count syns for cooked fruit. Consult the app for exact amounts.’
      Hope this clears things up for you. 🙂

  1. Can you make a few at a time and eat cold over a few days? I don’t tend to have time to cook in the morning so I am wondering if you can make them in an evening and save for the next morning and would they still taste good- I currently make overnight oats for breakfast for this reason so I am looking for a good alternative thank you.

    1. Hi Gemma
      Yes, you can mix up the ingredients the night before and keep in the fridge overnight, then bake in the morning. 🙂

  2. Please can you tell me if its meant to be quite solid once cooked? I didn’t have big enough ramikin so used 2 small and cooked for 15 mins . It maybe that it was spread out in 2. But tasty. Just quite solid.

    1. Hi Suzanne
      You can try using 1 egg to see if you prefer the texture. I use one egg and bake in an individual pie dish, rather than a ramekin. Hope that helps.

  3. hi, what sort of consistency should this be, once cooked. i found it a bit slimey and only ok so was a bit disappointed to be honest.

    1. Hi Sue
      We have plenty of other baked oats recipes to try – have a look here;

      We use one medium egg, and the texture is quite dense. It’s filling and satisfies hunger for longer than other HEB options. You could separate the egg and whisk the white, then gently fold it in to incorporate more air into the mixture.

  4. Hi,

    Lovely recipe, I just wanted to ask the top baked lovely but inside was quite soft still. Is it meant to be hard the whole way through and if so, how can I change it?


    1. Hi Bobbi
      No, its not meant to be hard all the way through. The egg/oats mixture will still be relatively soft in the middle once baked. 🙂

  5. Thank you….vv yummy!!
    I put frozen raspberries on it once cooked to cool it down and save the syns😉
    Mum puts it in the oven when I wake up, then the smell is enough motivation to get me downstairs quick😁🤣

    1. Hi Clare
      You could use milk, but you’d have to Syn it or take it from your HEA allowance for the day. 🙂

    1. Hi Hayley
      You should really use some egg to make this recipe work. We use medium eggs in all our recipes unless stated otherwise. Maybe try it with one medium egg and see how you like it. 🙂

    1. Hi Paula
      You can use any basic porridge oats from the supermarket, or even Ready Brek if you prefer a smoother texture. 40g of oats is a Healthy Extra amount. 🙂

  6. I was looking for a new oat breakfast dish and made this with the inclusion of some fresh blackberries. It turned out enjoyable but I wouldn’t eat for breakfast again. Next time I make this it will be with the intention of eating as a cakey sweet treat to have with a cuppa!
