I admit that I don't eat enough E meals. If you are a Trim Healthy Mama, you know what I am talking about. It just seems so much easier to make those decadent, luscious S meals and desserts. Notice I said it "seems" easier. It really isn't hard to get those E's in, but I'm just in a rut. (There, I said it!) If you are unfamiliar with THM, "E" meals are healthy carb and protein based, using such healthy carbs as oatmeal, sweet potatoes, beans, lentils, and quinoa (and others). (For more information on THM, check out their website.)
I love to eat E's for breakfast. The Trim Healthy Pancakes are one of my absolute favorites! I like to layer them with sweetened Greek Yogurt and my easy 2 Ingredient Peach Sauce for a decadent breakfast! I am also a fan of baked oatmeal. I love to make up a big batch so I have leftovers in the fridge to eat throughout the week.
This recipe was inspired by an upside down pineapple oatmeal I had at my mother-in-laws this summer. My sister-in-law layered fresh pineapple in the bottom of a cast-iron pan and baked oatmeal on top. It was delicious! I did not have fresh pineapple last week, but I did have frozen peaches! Fresh peaches would also work great in this recipe!
I topped this oatmeal bake with my Copycat 000 Yogurt Recipe, and a drizzle of sugar free maple syrup. I added some collagen coffee, and I had plenty of protein for a rounded E meal that gave me energy for my day!
I added whey protein to the oatmeal bake for a bump in protein, but that is not absolutely necessary. If you do not use whey protein, this recipe uses No Special Ingredients!

I have Gentle Sweet. What would the conversion be for the xylitol?
I would refer to this conversion chart to be sure of the amounts. 🙂 https://media.trimhealthymama.com/wp-content/uploads/sites/4/2017/05/07222306/THM.Sweetener-Conversion-Chart.pdf
Is this ok to refrigerate and eat for a couple days worth of breakfast?
Absolutely! That is what I did - except I only had enough leftover for 1 more breakfast! 🙂
Could you use fresh peaches?
Does anyone know what the sugar "count" is My hubby and I are diabetic and I know that peaches are very high in sugar
What kind of pan would you recommend since I don't have a cast iron one?
I would recommend using a glass Pyrex dish - probably a 9x13 or the one slightly smaller than that.
I am out of whey! Could I use collagen and if so how much?
Yes, I would use the same amount. 🙂
Is this fat free Greek yogurt?
That is what I use, yes.
I love the idea of pineapple in this. Could I use canned pineapple in lieu of the peaches? How much do you think?
I actually have a recipe using pineapple! http://mymontanakitchen.com/2017/08/25/upside-pineapple-oatmeal-sugar-free-thm-e/
I made this for breakfast Saturday and it is amazing! The flavors are great. I used gentle sweet instead of xylitol and used a lot less and it was perfect. The only weird thing I ran into was some of the oats floated to the top so it has a crunchier top than I expected. This is the perfect, filling breakfast though! Thank you.
How long will this last in the refrigerator? Will it freeze well?
It should keep for 5 days in the refrigerator, and yes, it freezes great!
Can you use blueberries or strawberries?
Could you clarify that this is calling for 1 and 1/4 C of sweetner. I used 1 C and it's very sweet!
Yes, that is the amount I use. (But I like things very sweet)
