This is amazing!  You can alter the recipe, by adding different fruits, to suit your tastes too.


Ingredients (for 1 person):

  • 40g oats (I use a supermarket own brand for this)
  • 100ml skimmed milk
  • 1 egg
  • half a tsp of cinnamon
  • pinch of salt
  • 1 tbsp Myprotein sugar-free maple syrup
  • a banana


  1. Slice the banana into pieces and put about 3/4 of them into a small baking dish.
  2. Mix the oats, cinnamon and salt before sprinkling over the banana pieces.
  3. Whisk the milk, egg and sugar-free syrup before pouring over the oats and banana.
  4. Put the remaining banana on top.

Cook on 180C for about 20 minutes - it may need a little longer.  Serve with low fat natural yogurt or Skyr natural yogurt.  Enjoy!

  1. Really lovely breakfast and really filling. This is my first day on No Count. I think your site will be my go-to for recipes. Thank you very much indeed.

    1. Hi and thank you Jane:-) I’m so glad you enjoyed this breakfast and hope you enjoy lots more NC recipes! Good luck with the rest of the week, Helen xxxxx

  2. I made this yesterday as a change from my usual porridge with raspberries. I quadrupled the quantities, put it in a loaf tin (just fit!) and baked for 35 mins. Delicious! I don’t usually get much protein with my breakfast, so the egg will help.

    1. Hi Andria, I’m glad you enjoyed this one 👍🏻💕 – it sounds great cooked in a loaf tin and will give you a few days’ portions too! Enjoy your afternoon 🤗💕💕 Helen xxxxx

  3. These look yum!, could you make them in advance and if so how long would they keep for?
    I happened to stumble across a link for your website from WW connect and so glad I did! it is a great website with lots of useful tips and recipes, thank you so much for sharing with us!

    1. Hi and thank you Marie, it’s great to hear that you like the website:-) These can be made beforehand and are still ok to eat 2 or 3 days after you’ve made them. Just keep them in the fridge. Hope you enjoy them! Helen xxxxx

    1. Hi Elizabeth, it’s great to hear that you enjoyed this breakfast. Happy Valentine’s Day – hope you have a fab day ahead! Helen xxxx

  4. Tried this for brekkie today, as usual was very nice
    Didn’t have the maple syrup, but used sweet freedom choc shot
    Would use less cinnamon next time
    Thanks again, another good recipe

    1. Morning Jean, glad you enjoyed this one – I bet the choc shot worked well with it. I’ve just had overnight oats (again!) with warm cherry compote – definitely one to try. Hope you have a lovely day, Helen xxxx
