Berry Oatmeal Bake With Fruity Yogurt Topping | THM: E

Save for later!

I really struggle to incorporate E meals in my Trim Healthy Mama diet. I know I need good carbs, especially while I’m nursing, but my heart and soul loves rich, buttery, S dishes the most.

However, this Berry Oatmeal Bake With Fruity Yogurt Topping, a THM E, is an exception. I don’t miss having an S meal for breakfast if I can have this instead!

It’s delicious warm or cold; perfect for Fall mornings when the temperature can vary greatly from day to day. It’s an easy, make-ahead dish. I can wrap individual bars and freeze them. On hectic mornings, I warm them up in the toaster oven or microwave and smother it with the pre-made fruity yogurt topping. They are so good and full of protein, I can usually make it straight to lunch without snacking in between.

If you serve this Berry Oatmeal Bake with Fruity Topping straight from the oven, it will be more of a crumble than a bar. The trick to getting it cut into bars is to let it sit overnight in the fridge until all the liquid has been soaked up and gelled by the chia seeds. Then you can re-heat the bars in the toaster or microwave if you still want to enjoy them warm.

Notes

If you serve this Berry Oatmeal Bake with Fruity Topping straight from the oven, it will be more of a crumble than a bar. The trick to getting it cut into bars, is to let it sit overnight in the fridge until all the liquid has been soaked up and gelled by the chia seeds. Then you can re-heat the bars in the toaster or microwave if you still want to enjoy them warm.

You can divide this dish into 6 servings and still be under the carb limit for an E meal, but I am plenty full when I split it into 9 servings! Divide according to how hungry you are or how many people you have to feed. 🙂

  1. Is it 2tsp of vanilla in the mixture? I was going off the ingredient list and didn’t see it said only 1tsp in the instructions until after I mixed it in ???? it’s in the oven now and smells wonderful, so hopefully I didn’t mess it up!
