Syn Free Carrot Cake Baked Oats | Slimming World

When we first posted the recipe for the Bakewell Baked Oats a few weeks ago we never expected them to be quite as popular as they are, and we started thinking about what other flavours we could try, and we came up with this Syn Free Carrot Cake Baked Oats amongst others.

Syn Free Carrot Cake Baked Oats

We’ve had lots of great ideas from members of our Facebook group, so we decided to work our way through some of them and share them with you, starting with this. So a huge, huge Thank You to everyone that’s shared their favourite baked oats ideas on the group.

Syn Free Carrot Cake Baked Oats

Baked oats are a great, really filling way to use your HEB on the Slimming World Extra Easy plan, and you could have this for breakfast, supper or even a dessert!

If you use your HEB this will be syn free, but if you prefer not to use your healthy extra it will be 6 syns for the whole lot.

Please note that this recipe has been amended to take into account the changes to HEBs and syn value of granulated sweeteners.

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.

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.

The recipe for this Syn Free Carrot Cake Baked Oats now uses 3/4 of a tablespoon of sweetener so there’s no need to add any syns on for the sweetener itself. If you want to add more then you should 0.5 syns per tablespoon.

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 these Syn Free Carrot Cake 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.

    1. Hi Leah,
      Yes you can, but, if you can get hold of some Sukrin I would definitely recommend giving it a go. There’s no strange after taste that you get with other sweeteners which makes it perfect for baking

  1. Another great recipe & really filling. I love recipes with built-in speed foods too. Will definitely be making this again

  2. Hi, how long no will the baked oats last once cooked and how should I best store it. Too much for one portion for me. Thanks

  3. I make this without sweetener and use quark or ff yogurt instead of mullerlight yoghurt ( M/lights gives me a headache). Baked in a large tin so that it is flat-ish when cooked). Then it is delicious with savoury and also with a teaspoon of chocshot (0.5 syns).

  4. Is it possible to mix this up the night before and leave the mixture in the fridge so it can just be put in the oven in the morning?
    Mostly because I’m both lazy and ueless in the mornings 😛

  5. Just wondering when you say to make a vegetarian version of the baked oats carrots… do you mean a vegan version. And if so do you mean use the Alpro natural yoghurt? Changing the yoghurt from muller light to plain natural yoghurt won’t make it veggie as it’s veggie already? Confused? 🤔

    1. Hi Jane
      There is gelatine in Muller lights so they are not suitable for vegetarians.This means a vegetarian alternative is to use fat free natural yogurt instead

  6. Oh my goodness thankyou so much! I feel like I’ve been really naughty when in actual fact as good as gold! I do miss carrot cake, it’s my favourite! I did syn some sultanas to add to the mix which was definately worth it!

    1. Hi Sarah
      It shouldn’t be too moist. Maybe the eggs were on the large side. If you prefer a drier texture you could maybe add a little less yogurt.

    1. Hi Carleigh
      If you click in the portions box at the start of the recipe itself then you can change the number you are cooking for. It will automatically adjust the quantities for you

  7. Hi Kate,

    Can I just say, firstly, great recipe. And secondly, well done for responding so politely to these comments 😂

  8. Just wanted to say how amazing this recipe is , thank you so much for this and all the other delicious recipes you provide for us, just love this site x

  9. Hey. Have this in the oven to take for a taster at class tomorrow. Tastes delish raw! Bet it goes down a treat! Can’t wait to try more of your recipes – thank you!
