Pop into any supermarket, cafe or bakery and it’s impossible to escape the fact that we’re now definitely in mince pie season. As delicious as these sweet, crumbly, fruit-filled pies are, they won’t help you get the Christmas weight loss you want. So we’ve cooked up a brand-new recipe – Slimming World baked oats… that taste just like mince pies!   

Enjoy your mince pie baked oats as a filling festive breakfast or pop the kettle on and have them as a slimming-friendly treat with a cuppa. You could even make them for the big guy on Christmas Eve, if Santa’s watching his weight!
