Carrot cake baked oats (no sweetener)

**WW edit**
With 65g sultanas at 11 points and 70g oats at 7, I reckon it's 18 for the whole thing. You could dice an apple instead of using sultanas but you might need to cook it for longer.

Another week, another gain! I really need to do something about this, and despite not having a sweet tooth, I *need* to avoid the leftover biscuits and chocolate at work. In fact, they're not even leftover - they keep appearing at meetings, and there are a few of them.

Every time I've made baked oats with sweetener I've had to bin them, so this is my creation, baked on a weekday morning with one eye half open (they're easy to do).

I only had dried figs in because I ordered them online by accident before Christmas thinking they were fresh figs (to put in a posh gin we had).

1 grated carrot
70g oats
100g fat free natural yoghurt
1 egg
40g dried figs (or replace with other dried fruit)
25g sultanas
1 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp nutmeg
Orange zest

If you want it a little sweeter, add a tbsp of date syrup (2syns I think).

Mix thoroughly and add to a silicone baking dish (makes turning out easier).

I cut mine into 12 pieces, and given the ingredients, I reckon every 4 pieces count as 1 x Hex b. Or, each piece is 1.5 syns.
