    Hey Teresa, you could swap the quark for extra yoghurt or for some light cream cheese and adjust the calories accordingly, hope that helps!

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

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