KathyThursday 15th June 2023

I made the chocolate orange baked oats and I grated the rind of an orange into the mix..
I didn’t have a Choc Shot so I used a heaped teaspoon of icing sugar mixed with a squeeze of the orange juice and drizzled it on top.. delicious


    SharonThursday 19th October 2023

    Hi Kathy, thanks for trying our Chocolate Orange Baked Oats and for sharing your tips. We’re so pleased you enjoyed the recipe!


GwendaFriday 5th March 2021

When do you add the first tsp of choc orange shot – remaining drizzle over once cook. It is not mentioned other than don’t add when you combine in all the ingredients??? I have all three books but have only checked the new one and recipe not in there!


    HollyMonday 8th March 2021

    Hi Gwenda, all the ingredients are added in step 1 but you need to reserve 1tsp of the choc orange choc shot this is then drizzled over the baked oats in step 3, so 1 tsp in the oats and 1 tsp drizzled on the oats. Hope that helps!


Michelle RatcliffThursday 18th February 2021

I’ve split the mixture into ramekins for a small portion for breakfast. If I cook all of them now will they last in the fridge? Or freeze and then reheat? I’ve got four out of this mixture. Thanks


    HollyFriday 19th February 2021

    Hi Michelle, You can cook them and keep in the fridge for approximately 3 days so if you’d like them to last longer it’s probably best to freeze them hope that helps!


Shannon Harding-WheadonThursday 2nd April 2020

Where can i get the choc orange choc shot from in the uk?


    Sharon FitzpatrickThursday 7th May 2020

    Hi Shannon, Chocolate Orange Choc Shot is available in most supermarkets in the UK. It’s a low calorie chocolate syrup made by a company called Sweet Freedom. Hope this helps and thanks for getting in touch.


HollyTuesday 28th January 2020

I’m dairy free, could I use a dairy free yogurt as an alternative to a Muller light?


    Steve CowderoyTuesday 12th May 2020

    Hi Holly, thanks for getting in touch with us, although we have not tried this ourselves it should be ok with a dairy free yogurt. Please let us know how it goes.


ConWednesday 30th January 2019

Instead of whole eggs could I just use egg whites?


Teresa WalshTuesday 7th August 2018

How much sweetener do you use please


    JennyThursday 16th May 2019

    Hi there, I have just been diagnosed with type 2 diabetes and would love to know how many carbs are in overnight oats, struggle with low carb breakfast ideas … many thanks for any ideas …..


      Emma TThursday 20th June 2019

      Hi Jenny,

      We’d recommend using a nutritional calculator to find this info out ????

KateMonday 4th June 2018

Can I make this recipe the night before and then keep it in the fridge until the next morning and heat it back up in the microwave please?


NickFriday 6th April 2018

Have just made this – amazing! I only had the orange mullerlight yoghurt, plain not orange chocshot and no real oranges for zest but it didn’t matter. It was delicious – I’m struggling not to eat the other half straight away!


JulesSaturday 10th March 2018

Hi, could you use the orange sprinkled with dark chocolate mullerlight yoghurt for this?


    Lyn FWednesday 8th June 2022

    Yes, I always use a Mullerlight orange with chocolate sprinkles yoghurt instead of the vanilla. Try making a toffee apple baked oats by using a mullerlight toffee apple yoghurt and adding 50g of chopped apple….its delicious.


      SharonWednesday 8th June 2022

      Hi Lyn, thanks for helping out, your toffee apple baked oats idea sounds great!

Rebecca FrenchFriday 26th January 2018

Hi is there any dairy free substitute?


ShonaThursday 18th January 2018

Just made these for the first time. I didn’t have orange choc shot so I just used the normal one and a orange muller light with dark chocolate! It’s a welcome change! Yummy


WendyWednesday 8th November 2017

D’oh!! I bought the Options hot chocolate powder. I take it that won’t work then? :/


WendyTuesday 7th November 2017

How can you drizzle powder? Or should it be mixed with hot water?

I know that sounds like a dull question but I can’t open the video.


MargaretThursday 19th October 2017

This looks so gorgeous I’m gonna try it at the weekend thanks ????


SHARON MORRISSaturday 7th October 2017

Hi where can I buy sweet freedom choc shot’s from as I would love to make this.


Jayne woodingSunday 1st October 2017

Hi can you make this in muffin cases for smaller portions? If so what would be the cooking time?


ClareTuesday 22nd August 2017

When would you you freeze… before cooking or after it’s cooked


    Emma TMonday 11th September 2017

    Hi Clare,

    I would freeze it afterwards ????


EllieSunday 30th July 2017

Just made this its so nice !


    Emma TMonday 11th September 2017

    Hi Ellie,

    So glad you enjoyed it!


CatFriday 12th May 2017

If you were to freeze this, how would you recommend reheating? Would microwave be ok? If so how long for? Thanks x


    KateWednesday 17th May 2017

    Hi Cat
    Yes microwaving is fine for reheating. The time would depend on the power of your microwave, an 800w would probably take a minute or so. Just make sure it’s hot all the way through before serving


Carla ReesSunday 2nd April 2017

Hi, what size dish are you using to cook this in please, really want to try this out ????


SharonMonday 20th February 2017

How would I heat it the following day, or from the freezer please. I’m hopeless at cooking times and temps sorry. Thank you,


    KateMonday 20th February 2017

    Hi Sharon
    You can just re heat it in the microwave until it’s hot


Caren elwisSunday 23rd October 2016

Would it be ok to eat cold the baked oats


NicolaThursday 4th August 2016

Do you think the recipe would work with the orange and chocolate sprinkles muller light?


    KaySaturday 6th August 2016

    Hi Nicola, I think it would 🙂


EvelynThursday 21st July 2016

Any alternative to choc orange shot?can’t buy that here


KellyTuesday 19th July 2016
