It won’t be long now until my oven baked porridge oats will take the lead as the most popular blog post recipe of all time, so I’m taking a stab in the dark in saying that most Slimming Worlder’s may struggle with what to have for breakfast the most. I know I used to, anyhow and a low syn fry up would always be my go-to favourite for but not everyone works from home; they’re busy getting ready, doing the school run and grabbing something in a rush.
Yet unusually, last night I had a hankering for a syrup sponge pudding with custard and after quick over night success with my Microwaveable Chocolate Pudding in a Mug video, I thought use the same concept with porridge oats and was pleasantly surprised.
It is completely optional whether you want to syn the golden syrup or maybe a jam, add any spices you wish and you may want to serve it with your favourite syn free yoghurt!
Let me know below if you liked it and what you’d do differently.
Large microwavable mug
1 tbsp golden syrup if using (2.5 syns)
35g porridge oats (healthy extra allowance)
1/2 tsp vanilla extract (optional)
2 tsp sweetener
3-4 tbsp milk from your allowance (I prefer 3 but my fiance prefers 4)

- In your microwaveable mug, pour in 1 tbsp of golden syrup
- In a bowl or second mug, mix together the rest of the ingredients and pour over the syrup.
- Microwave for 1 minute (800W) until the porridge rises. Once you take it out, it will drop a bit.
- Now eat alone or pour some yoghurt on top.
I love the quickness of some recipes with dried staples and this is definitely going to be a time saver in my house in a morning.
I hope you love it too.
