Raisin & Cinnamon Oat Bites / Low Syn Flapjacks

If like me you love flapjacks but hate wasting loads of syns on something small then you will love these Oat Bites. At just 2 syns for the whole lot you won't be disappointed.  The best part is that if you are in a rush - they only take 5 minutes in the microwave! You can also cook them in the oven if you have more time to spare.


  • Frylight
  • 40g of oats (HEB) **
  • 12g of raisins (1.5 syns)
  • 2 tbsp of cinnamon (can use more or less depending on personal preference)
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tbsp of sweetener (0.5 syns)
  • A dash of vanilla essence
  • About 125g of quark 


  1. Measure out all the ingredients into a bowl and mix well.
  2. Spray a microwaveable container with frylight.
  3. Add mixture to the container and microwave for about 5 minutes.
  4. Cut into as many slices as you like and place on a cooling rack.

Other notes:

  • These are only 2 syns for the whole lot when using the oats as your healthy extra b - otherwise they are 1 syn per slice when cut into 6 slices.
  • If cooking in the oven, line a baking tray with baking paper and spray with frylight before adding the mixture to the tray. Cook for 20-25 minutes on 180 degrees celsius. 
  • You can swap out the raisins for 10g chocolate chips for the same amount of syns.



Baked Oats


Porridge. It's not very glamorous is it? But we can snazz it up. All we have to do is whack it in the oven with a few simple ingredients and you have the very respectable and distinguished sounding "baked oats" :)  It also doesn't hurt that it tastes great and keeps you full for hours! My recipe here will cost you 3.5 syns per serving, read on for details on keeping it syn free.


Makes 4 servings

  • 1 banana (4 syns when cooked)
  • 1 teaspoon of baking powder (1/2 syn)
  • 1 teaspoon almond essence
  • 25g flaked almonds (7.5 syns)
  • 1 heaped teaspoon of brown sugar (2 syns)
  • 2 x Muller Light Yoghurts or syn-free yoghurt of choice
  • 1 egg
  • 70g Porridge Oats (2 x Healthy B)


  1. Mix Muller lights/yoghurt, egg and almond essence in a bowl.  
  2. Add oats and baking soda and mix well.
  3. Spray an 8'' baking tray with frylight
  4. Slice one banana (or fruit of choice) and line the bottom of the tray
  5. Pour in the batter. Scatter almonds on top
  6. Bake on 180c/375F for 25 minutes
  7. After 25 mins, sprinkle the brown sugar on top, turn up the heat to 200c and broil for a further 3-5 mins to get a lovely carmelised topping



Keeping it syn free: 

Forego the sugar, almonds and baking soda. Add banana after cooking  for a syn-free alternative.
