8 Must-Try Baked Oats Slimming World Recipes - The perfect way to start your day is with one of these amazing recipes.
If you have been doing Slimming World for quite a while, you certainly won't be new to the craze of Baked Oats. They are hugely popular because they are super easy to make and really filling.
Plus as they can be made in advance, so they are super convenient for those who have a busy morning schedule.
There are quite a few baked oat recipes for you to choose from right here on Slimming Eats and here are some of the best with these 8 Must-Try Baked Oats Slimming World Recipes.
You will probably of seen many variations on how to make these, some with 2 eggs, some with milk, some with yoghurt, and then, of course, there are so many different fillings or mix in's you can choose from.
Before I even began to think of the latter, I wanted to make sure the bake was perfect, while still keeping the syns as low as possible without compromising on taste.
For any of these 8 Must-Try Baked Oats Slimming World Recipes, you don't need any fancy gadgets for these, as the oats don't need blending or grinding, you make the mix with the oats just as they are.
Gluten-free? Pick a variety like these Porridge Oats below:
One egg is all that is needed for a single serving of baked oats, it keeps the final result almost cake-like and totally DECADENT!!. Too many eggs, in my opinion, result in a stodgy eggy texture.
The other key ingredient is baking powder. Trust me when I say it needs it, not much just ¾ of a tsp which is literally only 2 calories and so for that reason I don't even bother synning such a small amount, as the syns are negligible.
Do watch you don't mistakenly use baking soda instead of baking powder. I once did that by accident, by quickly throwing the ingredients together one morning under very tired eyes, while I got the kids ready for school and dropped them off for their school bus, when I came back and removed my baked oats from the oven, I was baffled as to what had gone wrong, when they are always so perfect, and there it was, the darn baking soda on the kitchen counter.
The tubs for my baking powder and baking soda are so similar, I totally didn't notice. I was gutted, to say the least, and had to resort to something else for breakfast in the end.
The other ingredient I use is yoghurt. I have used syn free flavoured varieties in some of my recipes, but I actually prefer to now use plain fat-free yoghurt and my own natural flavouring using extract and mix-ins. Either will give the same bake, I just find the flavoured yoghurts have too much of that artificial sweetener taste. So instead I add my own sweetness if needed with either Sukrin: 1 or Sukrin Gold which is both a natural sweetener with no aftertaste. You can, of course, use any sweetener of your choice.
One other thing you need is the right sized dish.
I use these anchor glass dishes, which are oven proof and the perfect size for this recipe.
The dish you use needs to have enough room for the baked oats to rise, otherwise, it will overflow and make a mess in your oven.
If you don't want to bake it all in one dish, and would rather make 3 smaller ones with the mix that you can enjoy throughout the day, then feel free to do that too. These 8 Must-Try Baked Oats Slimming World Recipes make a perfect treat when you fancy something cake-like.
So onto these 8 Must-Try Baked Oats Slimming World Recipes, the hardest part will be deciding which one to try first.
