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.
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.
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.
