Blueberry & Carrot Oat Muffins (SW, WW & low calorie friendly)


New and updated baked oat recipe! This is just one version, so please check my blog for other baked oat ideas.

These baked oats are 1/2 syn for 7 muffins, using oats for your hexb, part hexa, so the only syn is the blueberries. 

Blueberry and Carrot oat muffin recipe

  • 40g oats (hexb)
  • 40g grated carrot (speed)
  • 70/80mls of almond milk (part hexa)
  • 1 egg (protein)
  • 2 caps of vanilla extract or a flavouring of your choice (free)
  • 2 tsp cinnamon (free)
  • Blueberries (Free food and syns can vary depending on many you use, mine was 1/2 syn but please check your app to protect your weightloss)

***No sweetener needed

What you need;

  • Muffin tray
  • 7 silicone cases
  • Preheat your oven to 180 degrees

Measure your 40g oats and 40g carrots then put in a jug with your 80mls of milk and stir. Then add in your egg and mix throughly. Then add your cinnamon and flavouring of your choice. Combine all together. 

Place your silicone cases onto your muffin tray or tray, then pour in the mixture. Weigh out your blueberries and then pop a few in each case. You can just drop them on like I did on push them right into the mixture.

Put into your oven on 180 for 25-30 mins. Then leave to cool for 3-5 mins. You can add maple syrup or choc shot for an extra treat but I quite like them as they are.

Sweet Freedom Choc Pot review (new product)

have done a review on the Sweet Freedom range before and you can find that here, but today I want to share with you the brand new product they released, the Sweet Freedom Choc Pot.

Firstly, I would like to take a little bit of appreciation on the new branding and packaging. The woodland creatures and darker packaging really sets the product apart from its former white, clean label and you can tell the company has developed and created a unique brand that appeals to mass market.

Okay let me start with the question on everyones lips “how many syns?” it is 0.5 per level teaspoon and 14 cals. If you use 1 level tablespoon it is 2 syns. Now many people argue this point because 3 tsp are in 1 tbsp so technically that would be 1.5 syns BUT it is 14cals per tsp so 14 x 3 +42cals = 2 syns. Phew! that’s that cleared up 🙂

Now this product is exciting for me because I love chocolate spread in my breakfast, on fruit and in baked oats. Half the syns as normal spread, but what’s the catch? There isn’t one, there is just a different taste. So choc pot to me is more a dark chocolate spread, it has a bournville taste and I love bournville so it’s perfect for me. If you are not a fan of dark chocolate then this isn’t the spread for you! Anymore than 1 tbsp, it is sickly.

In porridge it melts through like a dream, it is easy to spread and it has a thick consistency. It doesn’t taste like the liquid choc shot, I find sometimes the liquid choc shot can have an aftertaste but I don’t find this with the choc pot.

The choc pot is 250g that does seem like a lot but it actually isn’t as much as it seems, it is around 16.5 level tbsp. So if you like to use it everyday like this chocoholic here, then you would need to buy a tub every few weeks. It lasts up to 6 weeks in the fridge, so maybe don’t be like me and have it everyday 😉

Here are a few breakfasts I have been enjoying using choc pot;

You can pick up the Choc Pot from Asda, it was released on 20th February but it was in limited stores, the product has now been released into over 300 stores. It is priced at £3 per tub.

Sweet Freedom (Review)

Do you ever find a staple product and always have to have it? Well thats how I feel with Sweet Freedom products. If you have been following my blog you know I am following Slimming World and being a chocolate and honey lover well that makes it difficult, until I found Sweet Freedom. For each of their products it is only 1/2 syn per level teaspoon!! Yes you read that right!

Sweet Freedom has 5 different products;

I use the syrup (which tastes like honey/maple syrup) in my over night oats, pancakes, baked oats, over fruit and nuts. The choc shot I use over ice cream, fruit, pancakes, baked oats, to bake with and a hot chocolate! The hot chocolate is so good when it’s made with Choc shot and Almond unsweetened milk!

I was so surprised by the taste of the syrup, it is a beautiful and thick syrup. I was worried that it wouldn’t be thick because it is so low calorie and vegan friendly, but it is! Heavenly! The same applies for the Choc shot, it is thick and has a gorgeous taste. I have raved about it that much in my Slimming World group around 50 members have bought it in the last few weeks, as we have our own group page and I always share my baked breakfast which all have Sweet Freedom products used in them.

Each product for me serves a different purpose depending what I am in the mood for. Recently I was inspired by the Slimming World HiFi macaroon bars and made Chocolate macaroon baked oats, where I used the Choc shot coconut which worked a dream.

Chocolate Macaroon Baked Oats (5 syns)

When I fancy a Terry’s chocolate orange the Choc shot orange spice hits the spot! I bake with it then add some over the top, delicious!!

The syrups are perfect for pancakes and waffles, yum! I am getting hungry just thinking about those. Waffles are my new obsession and the syrups are like the icing on the cake.

The things you can make with Sweet Freedom products are amazing. If you check out their Instagram and website you’ll be blown away by the range of recipes and how other people are using the products ever day. The fact it’s low calorie and a vegan product, makes it top marks! It is a staple that I could not be without, I use it almost everyday and replace it every few weeks!

You can purchase Sweet Freedom products from Asda, Tesco, Morrisons, Boots and many other stores, which you can find here.

Salted Caramel Breakfast Muffin recipe
