We often get asked what sort of oats you can use and the answer is simple: We use regular porridge oats.
You’ll need to use a very fine grater to get the best out of zesting your citrus fruits.
We use Sukrin 1 which is an all-natural granulated stevia sweetener alternative to sugar with zero calories.
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.

Could I prep the night before and just pop it in the oven in the morning whilst doing my before work jobs??
HollyTuesday 11th January 2022
Hey Esther, I’m not sure if the oats would soak up all the moisture from the egg and yoghurt and become more like overnight oats and a bit stodgy when cooked. You might be best making and cooking the oats ahead of time and then reheating when ready to eat. Hope that helps!
Maria IliaSaturday 6th March 2021
Hello, could i replace the orange marmelade with strawberry?
HollyMonday 8th March 2021
Hey Maria, yes you could swap for strawberry jam and alter the calories accordingly, hope that helps!

I made this yesterday for today’s breakfast. I’ve never had baked oats, but so pleased I now have.
I added half of a teaspoon of Beanies Chocolate Orange Coffee granules to the mixture. It made it very orangy, and instead of melting marmalade,
I spread it on top as soon as I’d removed the baked oats from the oven, letting it melt that way.
I served it with sliced apple and Apricots, with fat free Greek yoghurt. It was delicious, made 2 servings so having one for desert after tea tonight.

Hi Kaye, thanks for your message your additions to the Orange Marmalade Baked Oats sound delicious!
Angela O'LooneyWednesday 20th March 2019
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.
AngelaMonday 11th May 2020
Truvia sweetener is far sweeter than most so give that a try. Also add more quark or yoghurt and itwill be less dry. It also doesnt need as long a cooking time if you only use 1 egg.
LisaTuesday 12th May 2020
Great suggestions, thanks Angela.
Leanne OvendenTuesday 19th September 2017
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 🙂
DorothySunday 15th March 2020
I bake mine the day before. I find there is far too much for one, so I divide it into two and it does two breakfasts. I have never felt hungry before lunchtime when having this for breakfast!
Holly LevellMonday 18th May 2020
Hi Dorothy, thanks for your tips!
Sueb2Tuesday 15th August 2017

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
VickyFriday 16th September 2016
Do the baked oat recipes work with a sweetener other than the Sukrin, or is the taste too artificial? Thanks
MishSunday 18th September 2016
It works fine with any sweetner, i use aldi’s own brand and it tastes great.
LynneSunday 17th July 2016
Just tried this and it was really yummy and filling (ate it all)!
