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 7 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.

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.

What is Sukrin?

You don’t need to use Sukrin – you can use ANY sweetener.

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.

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. 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!

  10. Was wondering instead of oats could I use quinoa? I prefer it as a porridge oat subsitute and doesn’t use my hexb.

    1. Hi Claire
      Yes you could, however, this may be considered a tweak by Slimming World, similar to using cous cous for a cake. It may be worth contacting Slimming World to confirm if it is a tweak or not.

  11. Yum I love Carrot Cake baked oats!. Sometimes for speed, I cook them for about 7 minutes in the microwave (my microwave smells so nice now!) x

    1. Hi Richie
      No, they are different. Mixed spice is a blend of sweet spices, and is used in cakes etc. Allspice is a dried and ground berry and is used for savoury dishes

  12. Hi – I add a pinch of salt and double the amount of spices – but slightly less than double ginger. Also spray the dish with frylight before baking to make washing up easier. Great recipe – thank you!

  13. Made this last night and yummy yummy nom nom. I split the mixture into two ramekins and as a little experiment I microwaved one for 5 minutes and did one in the oven for 40 minutes. I don’t think it’s worth having the oven on for 40 minutes just for this but always good to bung in if you have the oven on for something else. My verdict….I prefer the texture of the microwaved one. Seems more light and fluffy and cake like. Really love all of your recipes especially the ones where I can get some extra speedy food stuff added. Thank you so much. xx

  14. Hi. This looks great, thank you! I tried the carrot cupcakes and they were yummy. Do you need to squeeze the moisture out of the carrots?

    1. Hi Cris
      It’s not essential to squeeze all the moisture from the carrots, just follow the steps listed in the recipe. 🙂

    1. Hi Jordan
      Absolutely! Sukrin Gold is a brown sugar substitute, Sukrin 1 is a white sugar substitute. Either will be fine for this recipe.

  15. I love this carrot cake baked oats, it’s a perfect day off from work breakfast! I use a couple of syns to add some sultanas and I add some orange zest too. Thanks for this gorgeous recipe PON!

  16. I have just tried baked oats for the first time this morning and I’m in love!

    I followed the recipe (except mixed spice because I don’t have any) and Carrot Cake Baked Oats are simply yummy, I’ll be trying them out in muffin form and in the other variations too. Thank you so much for a delicious recipe!

    1. Hi Carolyn
      We wouldn’t advise a powdered sweetener. If you can’t get Sukrin, you can use an alternative granulated sweetener, such as Canderel Sugarly (blue jar) or Natvia.

  17. I tried this cake and although it looked great I didn’t like the taste. As I felt that the actual cake was good I made it again but added some freshly grated ginger, it was delicious!!!!
    Thanks for the recipe and for helping me to create a delicious no syn cake !!! 😊👍

    1. Hi Rebekah
      There’s no raising agent in this recipe, so any rise is dependant on the amount of air you incorporate during the mixing process.

  18. I tried this for breakfast today. The mix, before adding the eggs, was really tasty so it looked promising. Unfortunately, after the 40 mins, the middle of the cake doesn’t look like a cake at all. It’s all wet. Would this improve if I only use 1 egg next time (as you mention if we want it drier to only use 1 egg)?

    1. Hi Marissa
      Try it with one egg instead, you’ll probably prefer the texture. I only ever use one egg in mine. 🙂

  19. Hi, just wondering about the texture of this after its cooked. Would it be dry enough to cut into slices or is it more of a eat with a spoon straight from the dish kind of outcome?

    1. Hi Rhea
      Cooked fruit has a Syn value, but this will vary slightly depending on which fruit is used. Vegetables don’t need to be Synned when cooked. 🙂
