These are a very satisfying sweet treat and perfect if you feel like you are about to fall off the bandwagon and scoff a doughnut! Don’t do it! Make these! They are 6 syns in total (using your healthy extra b portion of oats) but really worth it. I like them for breakfast, but then I have a very sweet tooth, but they’d be a lovely pudding if you haven’t used your HEB for the day!

I got my powdered peanut butter from Sainsburys (PBGit, £4), and previously I have used Hale’s Natural powdered peanut butter (which you can buy if you Click here), and Waitrose Seriously Chocolatey Chocolate Spread (click here) which is 3 syns per tbsp unlike 4 like many of the chocolate spreads around. The Waitrose chocolate spread also just tastes amazing! I haven’t tried the Sweet Freedom Choc Pot yet (which you can get in Asda), but I think it would be a good option!

A cheeky, delicious little way to use your healthy extra b oats!

Syns: 6

Healthy extra: B


  • 40 g porridge oats
  • 2 tbsp powdered peanut butter
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 2 tbsp water
  • 1 tbsp Waitrose Seriously Chocolatey Chocolate Spread


  1. Mix together all of the ingredients (apart from the chocolate spread)
  2. Divide about 3/4 of the mixture into muffin cases (4), or small ramekins (2) sprayed with Frylight
  3. divide your chocolate spread so there is a dollop in the middle of each bit of mixture, and cover the chocolate with the remaining mixture
  4. Bake at 180c for 15 minutes until golden brown


If you can spare some milk from your HEA allowance for the day then a couple of tbsp added into the mixture loosens it nicely instead of the 2 tbsp water
