Start your morning with a dish of this delicious Blueberry and Lemon Baked Oats. It is just 1 HEb and 1.5 syns per serving.
I know how much you all love my baked oats recipes, so with it being the new year and all, I just had to give you a brand new recipe to try. Well, I say brand new, but I've actually been making this version for quite a while, it's just taken me until now to get it photographed and typed up to but on the blog for you all.
It's super simple to make too, no blending of oats, just a case of mixing the ingredients and away you go.
It does have a small syn value because remember once you cook, blend or puree fruit is not longer syn free. Fruit in its raw form will keep you fuller for longer, whereas you are likely to consume more fruit if it is blended, cooked or pureed. Think about how long it takes you to eat an apple as it is for example, then think about how quickly you could eat that apple if it is cooked or blended. Yes, you are eating the same amount, but the process of chewing and biting into that raw apple is what will keep you fuller for longer.
It is a small measured amount of blueberries in this Blueberry and Lemon Baked Oats, so it's not as if you will be overconsuming a huge amount, but I like to keep to the rules 100% especially where my recipes are concerned, so for that reason, the blueberries are synned in this recipe.
To sweeten, I use Sukrin Gold which is a great natural tasting sweetener and perfect as a brown sugar replacement. I have tried many different types of sweetener in the past trying to find one that is natural and tastes natural and I think this is it. I usually just use some syns on honey or maple syrup, but it’s nice to know I can now use this and reduce the syns even further.
Sukrin can be ordered on Amazon, and from various health food stores.
I use it for all my dessert, cake recipes where a sweetener is needed. But feel free to substitute with another sweetener of choice.
For the yoghurt part, I go for some fat-free plain yoghurt, I prefer to use plain over flavoured, as it doesn't interfere with the flavour of this baked oats. Some flavoured fat-free yoghurts can have an overpowering sweetener taste.
If you do use a flavoured yoghurt for this Blueberry and Lemon Baked Oats, you may not need the sweetener, although I do recommend using the little bit for the top, as it gives it that amazing golden brown colour. Be sure to choose a flavoured yoghurt that will compliment the dish too.
As we are using just over 1 tbs of sukrin gold, it has a small syn value. Sweeteners are free in small amounts, but when using a tbs or more, it should be synned at 0.5 syns per tbs.
I prefer to use fresh lemon zest for the lemon flavour, but you can use a little bit of lemon extract instead if you don't have fresh lemons on hand. Just watch the amount you use, as otherwise, it can be a little overpowering.
Don't skip the baking powder. Trust me!! It's a vital ingredient in my baked oats recipes.
