Baked oats make a fabulous warm breakfast as long as you can tolerate gluten free oats, alternatively you can use rice flakes. This version of baked oats also makes a lovely pudding, a great alternative to a traditional carrot cake but has all the flavour, great served with fruit or a little custard!

1. Place gluten free oats (or you can use rice flakes if you prefer),chia seeds, cinnamon, ginger, mixed spice, sweetener (or sugar if you prefer but if you want it Slimming World friendly use sweetener) in a bowl.

2. Crack the egg into the oats and mix together, beat in the yogurt until well combined.

3. Peel and grate a carrot, stir the grated carrot into the oat mix and add a 15g of dried mixed fruit (this is optional but does make it taste more like carrot cake).
