Slimming World fans have been praising the recipe for a breakfast treat. Fans have called the simple recipe "too good".

Dieting often requires sacrificing your favourite morning pastries or that scrumptious buttery bagel, however, food enthusiast @cakeontherun might just have the solution. Being hailed as an ideal answer to satisfy sweet cravings, their cinnamon and raisin baked oats recipe has received rave reviews.

This simple yet delightful dish is concocted from basic ingredients and can be whipped up in a jiffy either baked traditionally or microwaved in 90 seconds if you're grappling with time (or enjoyed a lie-in). Served singularly in a mug, this oaty gem invokes feelings of heavenly cake and can be made vegan-friendly or gluten-free with minor adjustments.
