Sylvia McCrindleThursday 5th May 2022

I tried for first time today and all I could taste was lemon, so tart, not pleasant at all, where have I gone wrong? Please help


    HollyFriday 6th May 2022

    Hey Sylvia, Lemons vary in size and the amount of juice that can be squeezed out can vary so you may have had a particularly large lemon. 1/2 a lemon is approximately 1 tbsp juice but if this is still too tart you could add less to suit your taste. Hope that helps!


AmandaFriday 4th February 2022

I’m not a massive fan of blueberries so could I use chopped up bits of apple?


    HollyFriday 4th February 2022

    Hey Amanda, chopped up apple sounds great instead of blueberries!


Babs MoirTuesday 25th January 2022

Can I substitute milk or cream or buttermilk for the yoghurt?


    HollyThursday 27th January 2022

    Hey Babs, you may find milk or buttermilk make the oats too watery so we think yoghurt is best, hope that helps!


ZaraMonday 20th September 2021


I made this for breakfast, two servings for me and my daughter, however I found it was probably more like four servings for us. Where can I find the values per g/100g? While I have the values per serving I don’t know how much a serving weighs and so I am unable to work it out.
Any help appreciated
Many thanks


Zoe86Friday 18th June 2021

Absolutely delicious! I tripled the recipe so I have enough for the week as it makes 6 decent portions. Will definitely be trying the other flavours now too.


    HollyMonday 28th June 2021

    Hey Zoe, thanks for your message. Glad you enjoyed the recipe and thats great to hear you have your breakfast prepped for the week!


Dani twelvetreeTuesday 20th April 2021

Can I prepare the night before?


    HollyWednesday 21st April 2021

    Hey Dani, you can cook the baked oats ahead of time and reheat them when you are ready to eat or you can even freeze them! Hope that helps!


ClaireFriday 9th April 2021

Do you need to blend the oats for this recipe?


    HollyFriday 9th April 2021

    Hi Claire, the rolled oats don’t need blending in this recipe, hope that helps!


Miranda LawrenceFriday 29th January 2021

Is it right that the end result comes out like an omelette texture? I used 2 eggs and just doesn’t seem to be enough oats. I couldn’t taste them at all.
Not sure how I expected it to turn out but I guess more cakey than omelette.
I did replace sweetener with honey so whether that has affected it?…


    HollyThursday 4th February 2021

    Hi Miranda, the baked oats should be thick and have a sort of cake like consistency. The size of egg can impact the overall consistency of this recipe we used medium eggs when developing it but it’s down to personal preference you can use larger eggs and alter the calories accordingly. Hope that helps!


RuthSaturday 23rd January 2021

Can you use rice porridge instead of rolled oats.


    LisaSunday 24th January 2021

    Sorry, Ruth, we haven’t tried it with rice flakes, so we don’t know how this would turn out.


Sana SarwarSaturday 9th January 2021

After placing leftovers in fridge, should you reheat in microwave or eat cold?


    HollySunday 10th January 2021

    Hi Sana, the leftovers can be reheated just pop in the microwave until piping hot. Hope that helps!


LouisaFriday 8th January 2021

I have some fat free Greek yogurt in the fridge, could I use this instead of natural yogurt?


    SharonFriday 8th January 2021

    Hi Louisa, we haven’t tried using Greek yogurt but it should work if you use Greek style yogurt rather than a strained Greek yogurt. Strained Greek yogurt is much thicker than Greek style yogurt and maybe too thick for this recipe. Hope this helps.


Tracey KellyFriday 31st July 2020

Can you use frozen fruit for this recipe?


    SharonFriday 31st July 2020

    Hi Tracey, we haven’t tried this but because frozen fruit is wetter, you may find that when you stir it into the other ingredients in step 1, the mixture may turn purple.If you decide to try this with frozen fruit, don’t let it defrost first, just pop it in frozen. If you try this, let us know how it went! Thanks for getting in touch.


    Anna-Marie SorrollSaturday 9th January 2021

    I used frozen blueberries and it was amazing! Xx


      SharonMonday 11th January 2021

      Hi Anna-Marie, we’re so pleased to hear that using frozen fruit was a success. Thanks so much for sharing your feedback.

Bernadette cussSunday 5th July 2020

Can you used skimmed milk instead of yoghurt for baked oats please?


    HollyMonday 6th July 2020

    Hey Bernadette, it’s not something we have tried but it should work. Use the 2 egg option to make it stiffer once baked and add a little milk at a time until the right consistency is reached. Hope that helps let us know how you get on!


Lynne JamesMonday 11th May 2020

What oats do you need please


    Sharon FitzpatrickMonday 11th May 2020

    Hi Lynne, the oats used in this recipe are rolled oats. Thanks for getting in touch and hope you enjoy making this.


Holly. ESunday 19th April 2020

Could this be made with soya yogurt to make it dairy free. Would it work the same way?


    LisaWednesday 13th May 2020

    Hi Holly. Yes, that would work fine!Hope you enjoy the recipe!


Barbara HuntFriday 6th March 2020

Looks good but why is it 7 sp on blue please


ClaireWednesday 22nd January 2020

This recipe is listed as 3 WW points on the purple plan, but all the ingredients are free on purple, why is it 3 points please?


    Steve CowderoyFriday 22nd May 2020

    Hi Claire, thanks for getting in touch with us, our website has been amended to show 0 WW points on purple. Hope this helps


ZTuesday 14th January 2020

Would you be able to microwave it to reheat?


    HollyMonday 18th May 2020

    Hey, to reheat the Lemon and Blueberry Baked Oats from chilled: Place in a microwave proof container with loosely fitting lid and heat for 4-7 minutes until piping hot. Or from frozen: Allow to defrost, and heat covered in the microwave for 3-5 minutes, leave to stand for a minute and then cook for a further 3-4 minutes.


Jennie CareSunday 5th January 2020

You state that this is worth 7 ww green points, but I calculate it as 10 when you use 2 eggs? Can you clarify? Thanks.
Ps, its blooming lovely!
