To make a vegetarian version of this dish substitute the Muller Light for 175ml of Fat Free Natural yogurt flavoured with a drop of vanilla extract.

We often get asked what sort of oats you can use and the answer is simple. We use regular, run of the mill porridge oats (pardon the rather awful pun!).

You don’t have to whisk the mixture either, just stir and pour into the oven proof dish. It really is that simple. You can even cook them the night before and heat them up in the morning. You can even freeze them.

The most important ingredient in this recipe is the orange zest, and it’s amazing just how much of an orange flavour it brings. I was surprised when I tasted the mixture to see if it needed orange extract, and it really doesn’t.

You need to use a very fine grater to get the best out of zesting your citrus fruits. We use the Oxo good grips fine grater, which you can buy over on Amazon. It’s also great for finely grating cheese, especially hard cheeses, and even chocolate. It really makes things go a lot further!


Apart from the orange zest, there are just 5 other ingredients. We have a Muller light Vanilla yogurt (or you can add 1tsp vanilla extract, 1 tsp sweetener to 175g of fat free natural yogurt), oats, eggs, Marmalade and granulated sweetener. It couldn’t be easier!

What is Sukrin?

We use Sukrin 1 which is an all-natural granulated stevia sweetener alternative to sugar with zero calories. You can grab Sukrin 1 over onAmazon UK.

Sukrin 1 doesn’t have that strange after taste that a lot of artificial sweeteners do! It also shares the exact same sweetness and weight to sugar – which makes it really easy to substitute in recipes like these Orange Marmalade Baked Oats.

If you are using a powdered sweetener, then please check how it compares to sugar. In some cases you’ll need to use less, as powdered sweeteners weigh less.

That being said you don’t have to use Sukrin – there are lots of other high quality granulated sweeteners available from the supermarket, such as Canderel Sugarly, and Natvia.

  1. Add all of the ingredients, except the marmalade, into a bowl and stir until combined

  1. I made this but as a St Clements version with a small sprinkle of sweetner, lemon yoghurt, lime marmalade and orange zest – purely because that is what I had in my cupboards. I thought it was really tasty :o)
    Thank you for this recipe PON xx

  2. Mines in the oven now for tomorrow’s breakfast. I added some muxed spice. I’ve never made baked oats before so I hope I like it

  3. Hi! I’m dying to make this cake but wouldn’t have time to bake it on a morning. Woukd it be okay to make the night before and eat cold? Or should I warm it through in the microwave the next morning? Thank you 🙂

  4. Hi. I finally tried the baked oats with a few blueberries and raspberries sprinkiled over them. I used a small amount of Canderell granulated and also didn’t have any muller light yoghurt. So, I used 0 percent fat quark and a tablespoon of semi skimmed milk. They were ok but a bit dry. I used one large egg, because I have high cholestoral. Also, I found the canderell wasn’t sweet enough. So, I’ll try it again another day with the Muller, more sweetener and two eggs. It was nice, but lacked taste and was way too dry. I’ll get it right eventually.
