I did not receive any compensation for this post.  All opinions are my own.

About six months ago, I heard about the “Trim Healthy Mama” plan from a friend.  I didn’t completely understand it so I ended up purchasing the book.  My husband lost about ten pounds within the first couple weeks and, since I was pregnant, my goal wasn’t to loose at the time.  

I did, however, maintain the same weight from about 5 months to 7 months which has never happened with any previous pregnancy.  In the end, I gained about 25 pounds total but lost all but about 8 pounds within a week of delivery.

Again, that has never happened before either!  So now our little one is 3 months old and I want to get serious again and return to the Trim Healthy Mama bandwagon a little more strictly.  

I will be the first to admit that, while not a “Drive Through Sue”, I do go off plan more often than I’d like.  However, I found a great combination for a healthy E breakfast that almost the whole family loves.

A THM mama friend of mine shared a baked oatmeal recipe she found over at Stacy Makes Scents.  However, I did make a few changes as well.  Here is the recipe that I made:

Trim Healthy Mama baked blueberry oatmeal breakfast recipe #thmapproved

Overnight Baked Oatmeal THM Way (E)

~2 cups rolled oats
~1 cup almond milk
~3 tablespoons applesauce (I use organic apple cinnamon flavored)
~3 tablespoons Truvia
~1/3 cup egg whites
~1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
~1/2 teaspoon salt (I use celtic sea salt)
~3 teaspoons vanilla
~1 tablespoon cinnamon

Mix all ingredients in a bowl and stir well.  Put in refrigerator overnight.  In the morning, preheat the oven to 350 degrees.   Pour oatmeal mixture into 5 x 7 (or 8 x 8) greased pan.  Sprinkle with blueberries and more cinnamon.  Bake for 25-30 minutes or till crispy and browned on top.  So yummy!

These pancake muffins came out of trial and error.  I intended to make (S) waffles for the family and that ended in a complete messy disaster.  So I decided to go with a recipe that I got from my dad years and years ago and adapt from there to make an (E).  

Plus, I bake them in a muffin tin.  PS> Creative Cookiez Silicone Baking Cups are GENIUS!  I can no longer live without them.  Even goodies right out of the oven release and drop out perfectly every single time.

Muffin Pancakes THM Style (E)

~2/3 cup egg whites
~1 cup milk
~1/2 cup almond milk (or you could do 1 1/2 cups almond milk for THM friendly)
~1/2 cup olive oil (1/2 cup unsweetened applesauce for THM friendly)
~2 cups rolled oats ground into flour
~1 tablespoon baking powder
~3 tablespoons Truvia
~1/2 teaspoon salt (I use celtic sea salt)
~1 Scoop Protein Powder (I use Jay Robb)

Beat egg whites in a separate bowl till soft peaks form.  Set aside.  Combine the remaining ingredients and beat with mixer.  Add egg whites and gently stir together.  Fill muffin liners with batter about 3/4 full.  Bake at 350 degrees for about 15 minutes or till done.  Love not having to stand over a griddle!

    How are the pancakes an e with so much oil and we don’t use milk in THM? Just curious

  • Jerry Marquardt

    This looks like an especially great recipe to make very soon. I appreciate your sharing this special Breakfast Of Muffin Pancakes & Baked Oatmeal recipe with us.

  • Jamie

    These look amazing… but to keep the pancake muffins an E for THM, how can you use 1/2 cup of oil? Even if you only eat one out of 24 muffins, you would be over the 5 grams of fat with the rest of the ingredients in this recipe, wouldn’t you? Can I use less oil or something else?

  • Ellen

    Is it really supposed to be 3 TBS of Stevia in the baked oatmeal? Want to make this, but that seems like A LOT! lol – just wanted to check! THANKS, from this THM newbie! 🙂

    • Hi Ellen,

      I believe Stevia is more potent than Truvia. So you would probably want to use less. (It’s a personal choice as to how sweet you like things as well.) Are you using the THM brand stevia? Because their donks are extremely powerful and I’d only recommend 3 to 5 donks then. I never got adjusted to the taste of Stevia so I stuck with Truvia or the THM Sweet Blend options.

  • I’m a Type 1 Diabetic and I hate eating breakfast (but I have to) the baked oatmeal looks like something that would be easy for me to make and maybe if I store it in the fridge I can eat over the week, idk, but my hubby can have some too. I looks delicious, and it would be a good starch for me to get my day started with my insulin shot.

    Thank you for pinning a legit THM E breakfast, I always have to double check the numbers when it comes to Pintrest. For any who are curious I plugged in the recipe for the baked oatmeal and if you divide it into four there are 185 calories, 34g carbs, 4g fat, 7g protein 6g fiber making net carbs 28g. Also if you want to add some more fruit to the recipe, like the blueberries in the image, you can add up to 2 cups of berries or 2 apples sliced and still be on plan.

    I will try this soon!

  • Anne Taylor

    When its chillier outside we always eat baked oatmeal in the mornings! I’ve not been doing an overnight one though and I think I’ll try it! Thanks so much!

  • I love baked oatmeal! This sounds so yummy!

  • Tiffany

    Can I make these, bake them, cut into bars, and freeze them? I have a lot of almond milk that I need to use up!

  • Maria

    How many muffins will can I eat for a meal

  • Nicholle

    Can these be done as muffins?

  • Lori Coyour

    How well does leftover baked oatmeal reheat? And can you freeze it? Have you ever done the baked oatmeal as muffins and freeze them for taking out individually for later?

    • Hi Lori,

      There’s never much left, if any. But my husband never complained about the taste of leftover. (I always use the oven as I feel like the microwave can change textures/flavors.) I have never done them as muffins but I don’t see why it wouldn’t work.

  • Ashley

    Is this supposed to be refrigerated? Thank you!
