Losing weight is so hard, I constantly fall on and off the dieting wagon and always seem to lose my motivation but the past two weeks I have been on it! I have joined Slimming world online and I feel like I am ready to take over the world, move over Beyoncé!
Slightly side tracking, but the last two weeks, I have been following Slimming World pretty religiously, I can’t quite get my head around all unlimited pasta I can eat but my first week I lost 5.9lbs, hello beach body!
This morning I was seriously craving cinnamon and banana (odd combo right?!) and decided to make a Slimming world version of my baked oatmeal that I made last year and it tastes bloody wonderful! Syn free if you don’t add golden syrup and it makes a yummy filling breakfast! Find the recipe below if you want to have a go yourself!
You will need:
- 35g Plain Oats (Healthy Extra)
- 100ml Semi Skimmed Milk (Healthy Extra)
- Cinnamon (Optional)
- Nutmeg (Optional)
- 1tbsp Golden Syrup (Optional; 2.5 Syns)
I just preheated the oven to 180, popped the oats and milk in a jug, mixed together, added my flavourings (cinnamon, nutmeg and sweetener, 1 tbsp golden syrup) and then baked them for 25 mins, I do not like my oats ‘wet’ at all so I kept them in for 25/30mins and then added banana, more cinnamon and another tbsp of syrup on top and it was magical!
Overall I used 5 syns for it with the syrup but it is optional! There are so many variations you could use to make this, including added Options hot chocolate sachet, (hello sweet popcorn!) and others!
If your following Slimming world, make sure you check out my recipe for Slimming World Brownies too, it is definitely not to be missed at 1/2 syn per brownie!
Let me know if you make this or have made similar baked oats and your favourite toppings!
