Apple Pie Oatmeal | THM: E

Save for later!

It’s challenging for me to come up with Trim Healthy Mama E meals that I truly love. You may have noticed that most of the recipes on this site are S meals. I enjoy those the most and they’re the easiest to create, but consuming healthy carbs is important for hormonal stability and keeping my metabolism revved, so I’m challenging myself to make E meals that are a delight to eat! This Apple Pie Oatmeal is one of them.

Very frugally made without the use of special ingredients, Apple Pie Oatmeal is a single-serve breakfast that you can whip up with Trim Healthy Mama pantry staples: oats, sweetener, cinnamon, vanilla extract, cashew or almond milk, apple (Mutsu apples are delicious in this recipe!), and a scant teaspoon of butter.

Nut milk is the source of protein in this breakfast, but you should really have more in a meal. I highly recommend eating Apple Pie oatmeal with a generous scoop of 0% fat Greek yogurt on top, or pairing it with a collagen-infused coffee.

  1. I like my oats cooked in nut milk too, but unless it’s one of the new nut milks that specifically states “high protein,” your standard almond milk (unlike cow’s milk) isn’t a significant protein source – the oats themselves have more. I like to stir some carton (pasteurized) eggwhites into my oatmeal when I take it off the heat to add the necessary protein! That plus some Greek yogurt on top makes for a hearty E with the THM-recommended 15-20g protein that sticks to your ribs.

    • I make 3 servings of overnight oatmeal each week for my take along lunch. I don’t cook the oatmeal, I like it with texture. I add some WPI FOR EXTRA PROTEIN

  2. I ‘invented’ a similiar version of this recipe. I make a big recipe of steel cut oats for our family of 6. I add 2 scoops of whey protein powder to 1 cup Greek yogurt (b/c the protein powder doesn’t mix well in hot oatmeal). And mix that in when the oatmeal & apples are done. (I also add chopped walnuts on top of bowls for those in the family ok w/ xo meals).
