Dairy Free Low Syn Tropical Chocolate Overnight Oats | Slimming World

A month or so ago I decided to completely cut out dairy from my diet in hopes it would improve my skin. At first, I struggled to come up with ideas for breakfast as my go-to dish was fresh fruit with muller light yoghurt and my HEA would be milk for a couple of coffees.

Cutting out dairy has worked wonders for my skin and it really makes all the effort worthwhile. I’m reading labels of everything I buy and have found there’s milk, or milk derivatives, in so many things… even mug shots!

Low Syn Oat Waffles with Cream Cheese Frosting | Slimming World

I think this is THE best SW breakfast I’ve had, ever. I’ve got quite the sweet tooth so I’m always looking out for sweet breakfast ideas that won’t break the Syn bank… This nails it.


This recipe uses the basic blitzed oats and yoghurt mix (syn free when using oats as your HEB) but I have decided to add a little treat with the frosting. I have to admit I’m not a massive fan a of quark for sweet recipes and, after giving a good go, I still go for real cream cheese – lightest, of course.

The yield is 2 waffles covered in a fair amount of cream cheese. I did have a tiny amount of batter left, enough for a little mini muffin that baked next to the waffles (waste not!).

Don’t forget to serve with lots of fresh speedy fruit!

Low Syn Oaty Banana & Greek Yoghurt Muffins | Slimming World


These Gluten free and Low Syn (when using oats as your Hex B) muffins are the perfect  morning snack that ticks all my mid-morning sugar fix boxes. Pair them with a cup of tea or coffee and … yum!

The 2 Syns come from the mashed banana. I have seen many people use Quark as frosting, which works totally fine if you like it. Personally, I am not a fan of Quark on sweet things so I treat myself to some cream cheese if I need to bump up my Syns for the week. The cream cheese can also be used as part of your HEXA.
