Mrs. Pamela’s Apple Cinnamon Baked Oatmeal | THM: E, GF, DF

All the credit for this delicious recipe goes to a friend of a friend, who gave it to me with permission to share with you! We’re calling it Mrs. Pamela’s Apple Cinnamon Baked Oatmeal, but since it’s a Trim Healthy Mama E Breakfast, you can substitute any fruit for the apple. Peaches and blueberries are also incredibly delicious here! 

I used Lakanto’s Classic Monkfruit Golden 1:1 Sugar Substitute in this recipe. It gives a wonderful, “brown sugar” flavor to Mrs. Pamela’s Apple Cinnamon Baked Oatmeal. If you don’t have any of this on hand (though I highly recommend it as a 1:1 substitute for brown sugar…and you can use the Coupon Code: northernnester to save 15% off your order!), you could also use xylitol in the same amount, or Gentle Sweet in half the amount with a teeny bit of molasses added in. 

You can enjoy this Apple Cinnamon Baked Oatmeal straight out of the oven, as a snack, or in a bowl with almond or cashew milk poured over top. Either way, it’s a deliciously filling way to enjoy some energizing carbs! 

I like the texture of quick cooking oats best in this baked oatmeal, but old-fashioned plain also works wonderfully. 

If you’re on a tight budget, E meals tend to be pretty frugal ways to stay on plan. Oatmeal is a cheap and healthy complex carbohydrate that’s higher in protein than most grains, and high in vitamins and minerals. It can lower bad cholesterol, regulate blood sugar, relieve constipation, and keep you feeling full! Apples, applesauce, and egg whites are all very budget-friendly, too. This Apple Cinnamon Baked Oatmeal is a fantastic way to keep a larger family happy, healthy, and on plan!

11 Trim Healthy Mama E Breakfasts Prove Oatmeal Is Anything But Boring

Pre-THM, the only way I knew how to make oatmeal taste delicious was by adding heaps of butter, cinnamon, pure maple syrup and salt to it (I still do this for our kids! They often request “Mommy’s Oatmeal” when I have no clue what to make for supper).  However, after almost 6 years on plan, it has become one of my favorite ingredients, and these 11 Trim Healthy Mama E breakfasts prove oatmeal is anything but boring!

Oatmeal is a very frugal ingredient. It helps my milk supply (I eat it almost every day when I’m nursing). It’s higher in protein than most grains and high in vitamins and minerals. It can lower bad cholesterol, regulate blood sugar, relieve constipation, and keep you feeling full.

Bob’s Red Mill Organic Gluten Free Old Fashioned Oatmeal

My favorite oatmeal is Bob’s Red Mill Gluten-Free Large Flake Oats. Sometimes I find pieces of the hull in generic brands of oatmeal – very unpleasant to have stuck in your teeth! Not so with Bob’s. It’s a quality brand that I don’t mind paying a few pennies more for, since oatmeal is so cheap anyway.

If you have a blender, you can make your own oat flour by simply blitzing oatmeal into a powder. You can also purchase pre-packaged oat flour (This brand of Bob’s Red Mill oat flour is gluten-free, too). Oat flour makes delicious E pancakes and other baked goods that you want a cakier texture for.  Ground up oats (oat flour) is used in a few of the recipes below.

Because oatmeal is a complex carbohydrate, it should only be used in E meals for weight loss. If you’re at goal weight, pregnant, breastfeeding, or preparing it for growing children or a husband with a physical job, feel free to turn it into an XO and serve it with whole eggs, butter, coconut oil, or other healthy fats!

These Apple Flapjack Pancakes are a delicious way to start of the day in THM E mode!

They fell apart, so I started from scratch, starting with whole, old fashioned oats instead of oat flour, adding applesauce as a binding agent, grating the apples, instead of dicing them, adding a bit more liquid (cashew or almond milk will do) and cinnamon for flavoring.

You’ll just need:

Oatmeal is amazing for increasing a nursing mother’s milk supply, so I’m enjoying these no-bake Chocolate Macaroons as a Crossover, but if you prefer a single fuel, you could omit the oatmeal entirely and replace it with more shredded coconut.

These no-bake Chocolate Macaroon cookies are guaranteed to be enjoyed by anyone you know who fits into those categories! A true, family-friendly cookie that couldn’t be more simple to make!

Total Time 10 minutes

Ingredients

  • 6 tbsp cocoa powder

If you love the taste of these no-bake Chocolate Macaroon Cookies, you will love this E breakfast (another great oatmeal-based meal for nursing Moms!):

Chocolate Peanut Butter Cookie Oatmeal (E)

Pumpkin Oatmeal Cookies | THM: E

For having no gluten, no dairy, no eggs, no sugar, and no fat source, these pumpkin oatmeal cookies make an awfully great Trim Healthy Mama E breakfast or snack!

With a texture more like baked oatmeal than a sweet, sugar-y cookie treat, these pumpkin oatmeal cookies are chewy, flavorful, and ridiculously easy to put together! The batter literally takes less than two minutes to stir up as it only consists of oatmeal, pureed pumpkin and flavorings!

Since the only protein source in these pumpkin oatmeal cookies are the oats themselves, it’s best to enjoy them with additional lean protein, like a collagen-infused coffee or tea, a glass of low-fat kefir, or 0% fat Greek yogurt, etc.

Great Lakes Collagen is my favorite brand to use, as it has no flavor and easily dissolves into a mug of hot coffee.

You barely need any ingredients to make these Pumpkin Oatmeal Cookies, and the seven you do need, you probably already have on hand!

This recipe produces about 20 pretty addictive cookies. Try to limit yourself to 3 per serving if you’re eating them for a meal, or enjoy one for dessert after an Ultimate E Sandwich!

Yield: 20 cookies

Pumpkin Oatmeal Cookie | THM: E

Pumpkin Oatmeal Cookie | THM: E

These Pumpkin Oatmeal Cookies make a fantastic THM E breakfast, snack or dessert! You'd never guess they're free of gluten, eggs, sugar, and dairy. No special ingredients.

Prep Time 2 minutes
Cook Time 10 minutes
Total Time 12 minutes

Ingredients

  • 2 1/2 cups old fashioned oats (use GF oats if necessary)
  • 1 cup pumpkin puree
  • 1/4 cup xylitol (OR 2 tbsp Gentle Sweet)
  • 1/2 tsp molasses
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/2 tsp pumpkin spice
  • 1/4 tsp mineral salt

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 F. Lightly grease 2 cookie sheets.
  2. In a large bowl, use your hands to mix all ingredients together. Form into 20 balls and arrange on prepared cookie sheets. Flatten each cookie with the palm of your hand. Bake at 350 for 10-12 minutes. Cool and enjoy!

5-Ingredient Peanut Butter Banana Oatmeal Cookies | THM: E

A Trim Healthy Mama E cookie that tastes like more?!

Yes!

These 5-Ingredient Peanut Butter Banana Oatmeal Cookies (well, six ingredients if you count the pinch of salt 😉 ) contain almost no fat, no gluten, no dairy, no eggs, and no special ingredients, but they are perfectly sweet and chewy little gems that kids and adults alike love!

Defatted peanut flour (one of my favorite sources of protein because I love peanut butter flavored everything!), is an excellent source of protein in this recipe, along with the protein you find in the rolled oats.

Trim Healthy Mama’s Defatted Peanut Flour

An energizing snack or breakfast, you can also pair these 5-Ingredient Peanut Butter Banana Oatmeal Cookies with almond milk, 0% fat Greek yogurt, low fat kefir, or an E friendly shake for even more protein if you’d like.

You definitely want ripe bananas for this recipe, since no other sweetener is called for. The riper, the better: when the yellow peel is completely speckled with brown spots, you have exactly what you’re looking for!

My 5 year-old daughter calls these “banana muffin cookies.” They taste so much like banana bread or muffins, but instead of being a Crossover with fat from eggs and oil, these cookies are energizing E snacks that only take 5 ingredients to make, and 5 minutes to prepare!

If do you want a Crossover (a great option for kids lunches!), these 5-Ingredient Peanut Butter Banana Oatmeal Cookies are also amazing with sugar-free chocolate chips, or chopped 85% chocolate, chopped walnuts, or shredded coconut. Just be sure to keep your add-ins to 1/4 cup or less; any more than that and your cookies won’t hold together very well.

Instructions

  2. Stir mashed bananas, oats, peanut flour, cinnamon, vanilla extract, and mineral salt together. The texture should be similar to wet cookie dough, so you may need a little more or fewer oats, depending on the size of the bananas you used.
  3. Scoop 12 spoonfuls of dough onto prepared cookie sheet. Bake for 15 minutes. Store leftovers in an airtight container in the fridge or freezer.

Carrot Cake Oatmeal | THM: E, GF, DF

As you may have guessed by now, I’m a big fan of oatmeal and this Trim Healthy Mama-friendly Carrot Cake Oatmeal is among my new favorite flavors for Fall!

I find E meals really do get me energized, so I usually start my day with either a bowl of oatmeal (I’ve included my favorite Trim Healthy Mama oatmeal recipes at the end of this post) or a Berry Banana Baobab Smoothie (I had of these almost every day this Summer!).

If I feel like I’m in a mid-afternoon slump or just need a pick-me-up, I’ve also been known to enjoy a bowl of this Carrot Cake Oatmeal for a snack or even supper! It’s so simple and quick to make, and it combines all the wonderful elements of carrot cake into a delicious warm bowl. I love it!

I love that this recipe is free of gluten, sugar, and dairy. I’ve really been trying to cut back on dairy lately, because as I mentioned in my Pumpkin Spice Latte post, it has been causing me a lot of inflammation and acne this pregnancy. Even though there’s no dairy in this Carrot Cake Oatmeal, it’s creamy and satisfying. Old fashioned rolled oats cooked in unsweetened nut milk and mixed with collagen took care of that need for me.

As usual, you don’t need any special ingredients to make this Carrot Cake Oatmeal:

Personally, I don’t even like raisins, so I normally leave them out of this recipe (dried fruit in larger amounts isn’t recommend in the Trim Healthy Mama plan either, because it’s such a concentrated form of natural sugars). However, Pearl, the co-author of Trim Healthy Mama, uses a few on her Sweat Pants Oatmeal, and I thought they looked kind of photogenic, so that’s why you see them in the recipe and pictures here. Ha!

The sprinkling of walnut bits is the only added fat here. You can leave them off, or increase the amount to more than a teaspoon if you want a Crossover. Alternatively, you might like to choose a teaspoon of butter or coconut oil instead of walnut pieces as your allotted fat in an E meal.

Own it and enjoy!

Slow Cooker Pumpkin Spice Oatmeal | THM: E

There’s nothing more wonderful than waking up on a cool Fall morning to a bowl of warm Pumpkin Spice Oatmeal that has been slow-cooked overnight!

I was surprised that our kids loved this Pumpkin Spice Oatmeal as much as I did! Our 2, 3, and 5 year old asked for seconds and the lucky one who called dibs on the leftovers even ate a bowl, cold, later on for her snack!

Nature’s Hollow Sugar-free Maple Syrup

I like this oatmeal without any extra sweetener, but if you prefer (as my kids do!), you can pour on some sugar-free syrup before serving. For a kid-friendly Crossover, you can also sprinkle on a handful of chopped pecans or walnuts too!

I’m a huge fan of pumpkin anything, as you may have noticed. (Who else starts eating pumpkin in August?! I need some moral support here….)

I usually make my own pumpkin spice mixture, but I found this little tin of premixed pumpkin spice from Club House and love it! It’s a bit more expensive than making your own, but the flavor is spot on and handy to have when you’re pressed for time.

One of my favorite things about this Pumpkin Spice Oatmeal recipe is that in addition to being a hearty Trim Healthy Mama E breakfast, it’s also gluten free (be sure to use gluten-free steel cut oats), dairy-free, and extremely frugal!

A cup of steel cut oats expands enough to feed 6 people!

Field Berry Oatmeal | THM: E

As a kid, I loved Quaker packets of instant oatmeal for breakfast. This Field Berry Oatmeal is the latest of my favorite packet flavors to be converted into a Trim Healthy Mama compatible recipe (see the end of this post for a list of them all!); it’s full of healthy carbs and boasts a good bit of lean protein for sustainability. You’re not going to feel hungry too soon after enjoying this E for breakfast!

We’ve been picking wild black raspberries in abundance for the last few weeks, so they were my first choice to use in this recipe, but you could use any berry. I think blueberries would be especially amazing since heating them up enhances their sweetness!

You don’t need any special ingredients to make this frugal bowl of Field Berry Oatmeal. I’ve listed a tablespoon of collagen for extra protein, but you can leave it out and stir in some 0% fat Greek yogurt or low-fat cottage cheese instead, if you prefer.

If you leave off the tablespoon of half & half (only 1.5 grams of fat, so it easily fits within the guidelines for an E meal), and use gluten-free oats, this breakfast is also gluten-free and dairy-free!

Fresh or frozen berries may be used in any amount since this is an E breakfast.

Personally, I love this recipe cold; it tastes like dessert!

This is definitely the fastest E breakfast I have ever had. Put together the night before, there’s nothing to prepare when you wake up. Stir in a handful of raspberries and breakfast is served!

Overnight PB & J is also the most filling E breakfast I’ve eaten! I can barely finish a bowl. Thanks to a night of soaking in defatted peanut flour, 0% Greek yogurt, and cashew milk, this oatmeal will keep you feeling full until your next meal.

Trim Healthy Mama’s Defatted Peanut Flour

You don’t need any special ingredients to make this breakfast. In fact, you probably have everything on hand already:
