Syn Free Apple & Blackcurrant Pie Overnight Oats | Slimming World

If you’ve never heard of Overnight Oats, where have you been?! It’s a way of enjoying porridge oats without the need to cook them. These Syn Free Apple & Blackcurrant Pie Overnight Oats are a really quick and easy grab and go type breakfast.

Ideal if you don’t have too much time in the morning.

Because you’re not cooking the oats it doesn’t have the same texture as porridge, which I my opinion can be a bit too stodgy first thing in the morning.

Despite Overnight Oats being incredibly popular in the Slimming World community we somehow managed to make it all the way through to week 21 without trying them.

Eventually, in June, almost 6 months after starting Slimming World, we tried our first ever overnight oats recipe, and I must say, we weren’t disappointed.

So, back to this recipe. We’re lucky enough to have space in our garden to grow a decent amount of fruit and veg, and this year we have a bumper crop of blackcurrants, so we thought we’d use some up making some overnight oats, and what’s a perfect accompaniment to blackcurrants? Apple of course!

Now, just to clear one thing up. This recipe contains grated apple, and there have been many debates about whether or not it should be synned.

Following a discussion on our Facebook group I contacted Slimming World directly and was told that grating an apple is no different to finely dicing or julienning so there’s no need to syn it. If you were to cooking or puree the apple it would be a different story.

Typically overnight oats are layered fruit, oats and yogurt. However, we like to do things a bit differently by mixing up the oats, fruit and yogurt. We then top it with a “custard” layer made up with some natural yoghurt, vanilla extract, mixed with a little Quark and some Chia Seeds.

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.

Wondering what Chia seeds are? They’re super seeds packed full of goodness & make you feel fuller for longer and can count towards your Healthy Extra B.

This is why we only use 37g of Oats, so you don’t have to syn them. You can get chia seeds from your local supermarket or Home Bargains have them for £2!

What is Sukrin?

We use Sukrin Gold which is an all-natural granulated stevia sweetener alternative to sugar with zero calories. You can grab Sukrin Gold over onAmazon UK.

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 this Syn Free Apple & Blackcurrant Pie 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.

And if you’re looking for a jar for your overnight oats we recommend these ones over on Amazon , or there are these clip ones.

  1. The method says to use vanilla in both the oats mixture and the topping but vanilla is only mentioned once in the ingredients?

  2. Does anybody know where I can buy Blackcurrants or if anything else would do instead. I can’t seem to find them in Tesco, Morrisons or Asda
    Thank you

    1. Hi Tara
      Blackcurrants are a seasonal fruit, so you should find a plentiful supply in shops during the summer months. It’s hard to find frozen blackcurrants on their own, but they are often in a frozen summer fruits mix, which can be used in this recipe. Hope that helps!
