For the full list of ingredients and comprehensive instructions, please see the recipe card at the end of this post. Before you scroll, there’s important stuff in the blurb 👍

There have been many debates in the past as to whether oats should be synned when they are used this way. So in our quest to bring you the most up to date, correct information I contacted Slimming World directly to ask if ground down oats needed to be synned.

It’s not a tweak!

I was told that you do not need to syn them as blitzing them does not alter the nutritional value. Also, as you are using them as you’re HEB the amount you can eat is restricted so there’s very little chance of you over eating them.

However, as with anything that could be considered a tweak, if using the oats this way affects your weight loss then you should avoid it.

Synning the sweetener

This recipe has been amended to take into account the new recommendations about synning sweetener. This will keep it syn free. If you want to add more sweetener then you should syn it at 0.5 syns per tablespoon.

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 Pumpkin Spiced Latte Waffles now uses 3/4 of a tablespoon of sweetener, so there’s no need to add any syns on for the sweetener itself.

This recipe has been amended to take into account the changes Slimming World have recently made to Healthy Extras.

It’s that time of year when we start seeing lots of Pumpkin Spiced recipes! So we thought we’d kick things off with this Syn Free Pumpkin Spiced Latte Baked Oats.

Syn free if you use the oats as your HEB, otherwise it’s 6 syns per portion.

If you can’t get hold of a pumpkin you can use some butternut squash instead. It works just as well.

Making the Puree

Just chop your squash/pumkin up pretty fine, then place in a microwave friendly tub with a lid & microwave on full power for 3 minutes.


Be careful when you lift it out as it will be VERY hot! Attack with a stick blender/blender & mix in the shot of coffee & spices. Takes about 4 minutes in all & much quicker than passing it through a sieve.

What is Sukrin?

Sukrin 1 is an all natural sugar alternative that doesn’t have that nasty artificial taste that other artificial sweeteners do. If you haven’t tried it yet you really should! You can buy it fromAmazon.

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.
