Hi, it says that this is 3 WW smartpoints on the purple plan however when I input the nutritional info into the WW app it says it is in fact 13 smart points!! How did you calculate 3?


JESS HowardFriday 3rd January 2020

How many servings does this make ?


    HollyFriday 15th May 2020

    Hi Jess, the Lemon and Blueberry Baked Oats serves one person. Hope that helps!


KJSaturday 3rd August 2019

Love the recipe. Could you make a version without egg? Or what would you recommend to replace the eggs in the recipe?


    Emma TTuesday 24th September 2019

    Hi KJ,

    We’ve not tried this without egg…I have used “flax eggs” when I’ve baked vegan cakes before which seem quite successful. This is a mixture of flax seeds and water which you leave to sit until thickened and acts in a similar way to eggs in that it binds the mixture together. You’d just need to check the nutritional values of whatever substitute you use as this may alter those stated in the recipe ????


HayleyWednesday 26th June 2019

Hi I noticed this can be frozen,

Once defrosted how long would you put it back in the oven for?

Many thanks xx


    Emma TMonday 1st July 2019

    Hi Hayley,

    It would take 20-25 minutes, until thoroughly piping hot!


LizThursday 2nd May 2019

If I make this the night before and re-heat it, how long should it stay in the oven? I don’t have a microwave.
Or could I mix the ingredients and refrigerate them raw to cook in the morning?
Thank you.


    CateMonday 3rd June 2019

    It may work better to mix and keep raw ready to cook in the morning. Reheating in the oven would likely dry it out too much 🙂


SheilaFriday 12th April 2019

Can I make up the mixture the night before, leave it in the fridge, and bake it the next morning?


    CateFriday 12th April 2019

    Yes you could! 🙂


NadiaFriday 21st December 2018

Hi can you use quark instead of the yoghurt? Just because I don’t have any yoghurt but want to make them tomorrow. Thanks


AmiSaturday 25th August 2018

Im prepping foe the week, can you tell me how long it lasts for in the fridge?


BrigetteFriday 13th July 2018

Is it a full 175g of Muller light?


Natalie BrooksWednesday 4th July 2018

Hi can you use frozen blueberries in this recipe. Also would 50g frozen be equivalent to 50g fresh. Thanks x


DebbieTuesday 10th April 2018

Can you use natural yogurt instead of mueller light


KirstyMonday 19th February 2018

Could i swap vanilla Muller for lemon Muller?
Thanks Kirsty


Karen KnowlesSaturday 3rd February 2018

Just made these for the second time, I absolutely love them. I only use 1 egg though but add a dash of skimmed milk. Plus I use half blueberries and half raspberries. Absolutely delicious!


Ruth WilsonWednesday 17th January 2018

Just made this for breakfast but omitted the sweetener and used frozen blueberries it was delicious. It was like having a pudding for breakfast! Will certainly be making again.????


EllieSaturday 13th January 2018

Can you tell us how many portions there are in the photo used for this recipe?


KylieTuesday 9th January 2018

Trying to make this as we speak. Just weighed up 40g of oats. Surely thats not gunna make a whole cake? Im really confused or am i being dumb lol?


SuSunday 29th October 2017

Hi- two eggs seems a lot for one portion- I hate anything sweet which is eggy – could you use two chicks egg whites or one egg? Thanks!


KirstySaturday 21st October 2017

Can you use oat bran rather than baked oats?


JadeWednesday 18th October 2017

Please could you tell me how many this recipe serves . Thank you


IsabelThursday 24th August 2017

Can you give me a rough idea what size dish you use for the baked oats please. Thanks.


    Emma TMonday 11th September 2017

    Hi Isabel,

    The size of the dish really depends on how many portions you are making – these can either be made in small, single serving dishes (around 2 inches deep) or larger oven proof dishes if you’re making more than one portion at a time.

    Hope that helps!


AliceSunday 20th August 2017

Hi, love the look of this recipe and can’t wait to try it! Might be a silly question but do you think it would last in the freezer? I want to cook a big batch without eating it all at once!! Obviously I could just cook a smaller one or half the recipe but it’s more economical to cook a bigger cake I think ???? Thank you!


    Emma TMonday 11th September 2017

    Hi Alice,

    Yes you could freeze this if you wanted to ????


SarahMonday 14th August 2017

I’m really keen to try this, but when I try to print it by clicking on the print button I’m getting a big red screen on my pc saying that it’s been reported to Microsoft that the website is dangerous and may be trying to steal my personal or financial info. I’ve been trying to copy and paste instead so I can print, but the website won’t let me. Any ideas?


    Emma TMonday 11th September 2017

    Hi Sarah,

    We had a few technical issues with the print feature, but it should be sorted now!


Miriam DelaneySunday 13th August 2017

How do u know it cooked? Should there be any wetness?


    Emma TMonday 11th September 2017

    Hi Miriam,

    It should be set all the way through, with no sloppy mixture – all the details are on the recipe ????


AmyFriday 11th August 2017

How many portions does this make?


    Emma TMonday 11th September 2017

    Hi Amy,

    The receipe is for one portion ????


Jade DavisTuesday 8th August 2017

Hi I’m not a fan of porridge as indont like the texture. These baked oats look lovely, I’m just wondering, when baked is it just like porridge? Thanks


    Emma TMonday 11th September 2017

    Hi Jade,

    Baked oats do still have the texture of oats, but they’re not gloopy like porridge.

    Hope that helps!


PamMonday 22nd May 2017

Where can I buy these oats ? In uk


    KateMonday 22nd May 2017

    Hi Pam
    The oats are just normal run of the mill porridge oats, so you can get them anywhere, just make sure they don’t have anything added


Deb hasteMonday 2nd January 2017

Made this today for the first time. Not too keen on sweet things so left sweetener out and substituted the yogurt for 100g quark as like the consistency it gives. Omg absolutely delicious cannot wait til breakfast tomorrow so I can have it again ! Usually make my baked oats with finely grated carrot and cinnamon but this new combination has to be my favourite by far x


JulieSunday 28th August 2016

I really enjoy all flavours of baked oats, they are one of my favourite breakfast recipes. Thank you


Sharon CaseyWednesday 24th August 2016

I love love love all the varieties of baked oats.

Really filling and adaptable recipe.


loraineWednesday 27th July 2016
