    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. 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

  2. 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 😛

  3. 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

    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

  4. Hi Kate,

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

  5. 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

  6. 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!

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

  8. 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

  9. 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!

  10. 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

  11. 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?

  12. 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!

  13. 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)?

  14. 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?
