    I always thought it was just the plain one, but if anyone knows different, the golden syrup is delicious!

    Its the plain one that can be used as a HEXB.

    Thanks for the advice Sarah-Jayne.

    I take it you count the full syns for the flavoured ones then and dont deduct anything and class it as a HEB?

    The reason i ask is because i cleared one of the cupboards out in the kitchen last night i found a box of well in date Apple and Blueberry oats so simple sachets. I used to eat these every morning for breakfast pre SW and really fancied some this week as its starting to get colder and i like a warming brekkie!

    I don't think it would work out although you could ask your consultant. The GS flavour is 6/12 syns and the original is 5 syns. But only the original is 27g the rest are all 30g+

    That would be great if you could ask, would you let us know as I do it online and dont havnt anyone to ask accept you lot.;)

    I just read the box and it says you can use the filled sachet with milk for the correct amount and that is 180mml.

    Hey hun, that would be because McDonalds Porridge pots *are* Oats So Simple plain sachets, but made with whole milk I think - so you'd have to count it as a HEb but not knowing how much milk they put into it - if you can figure it out then it could be a HEb and a HEa, or a HEb plus syns for milk.

    Ahhh head explooode!

    I have a feeling that you can't count the flavoured ones as Bs - I think because of the sugar but def ask in class and let us know! I love the sound of the cinnamon one!

    Just got back from WI and i chose not to stay. We had a stand in consultant and i cant STAND her! She is actually like Majorie Dawes and considering i put 1 lb on this week i couldnt be bothered with the interrogation and having to talk about my dad's anniversary etc......sooooooo.....the long and short of it is i didnt find out!

    Is anyone else going to class in the next day or so who could ask?

    If not, i'll send my consultant a text tomorrow, ive been told she is ill today so i dont want to pester her.

    You could have the original as a HEXB and put in a tbsp of golden syrup which is 2 syns or even 1/2 a tbsp for 1 syn. Yummy.
