I was so happy when I stumbled upon this recipe! Jennifer Griffin has some great THM friendly recipes on her blog, A Home With Purpose. Personally, as an oatmeal fan, this single serving baked oatmeal caught my eye. This is just perfect for my morning cravings of fruit and oatmeal.
For this particular recipe I added a 1/4 of an apple diced, a couple mango pieces (not too many as they are high in natural sugars) and blueberries. The reason I used apple pieces was because I didn’t have any unsweetened applesauce. Actually, I never think to buy the unsweetened apple sauce so every time I have made this I use 1/4 of an apple diced. I prefer it this way anyway, love the crunch and texture of the fruit.
As you can see, I made two. This is because my husband is also a huge fan of oatmeal and if he was eyeing my dish I would rather him have a whole one for himself than to be reaching into my warm bowl of delight 😉 We do share but sometimes it’s good to have your own dish!
On a chilly morning this is wonderful right out of the oven. I like to sprinkle THM Erythritol or Sweet Blend over the top and dig in! If you like it to be a tad watery add a touch of unsweetened almond milk. Not too much though as this is an E meal and there are already Chia seeds in the recipe. Too many fats will put you into Crossover.
I would say, if you like to have coffee with your morning breakfast it is best to have it black with E meals. However, if you need the creaminess, I would suggest skipping the Chia seeds in the recipe and doing the light version on Pearl and Serene’s Trimmaccino. That way you keep your meal E and still delicious. Thank you Jennifer for your wonderful recipe!!
Dig in with a thankful heart…
We a blessed by God to have food Daily.
He is good to us!
