Trim Healthy Mama Banana Oatmeal Blender Muffins {THM E}

Hey there!  It’s my first THM recipe!!  Now that I’ve been eating this way for 3 years, I feel more and more confident about altering recipes to make them THM-friendly.

(Wondering what THM is?  Here’s more info.)

When I look for potential recipes to try, I have a few criteria.  They need to be quick to prep, the fewer ingredients the better, and I have to actually have the ingredients in the house.

Last week I had some very ripe bananas I needed to use up.  So I went to Pinterest and found inspiration!

I found a non-THM muffin that met most of my criteria, and I felt like I could easily adjust it to make a THM E (energizing) breakfast/snack.

THM Banana Oatmeal Blender Muffins

So here’s the recipe (inspired by the banana oatmeal recipe from Well Plated by Erin):

THM E Banana Oatmeal Blender Muffins

(makes 12 muffins)

  • 2 cups rolled oats
  • 2 medium very ripe bananas
  • 2 medium eggs
  • 1/4 cup vanilla unsweetened almond milk
  • 2 Tablespoons Truvia
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/8 teaspoon sea salt or pink himalayan salt
  • 1/4 cup Lily’s stevia-sweetened mini chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.  Place 12 paper baking cups in a muffin tin and spray well with coconut oil spray.  Put all ingredients except the chocolate chips in your blender and blend!!  (Yes, it’s really that simple!)  After it’s well blended, add the chocolate chips and stir by hand.  Pour the batter evenly in the twelve muffin cups.  Bake for 15 minutes.

That’s it!  You can have one for a snack or have one as an addition to other E foods for a yummy breakfast!

Here are the nutrition facts:

Enjoy!!

      Great question! I feel comfortable doing that because there isn’t a significant amount of fat in the rest of the recipe – and if you have one you are below the 5 grams of fat allowed in an “E” meal. If you’re not comfortable doing that, you can always substitute a 1/2 cup egg whites from a carton for the two whole eggs.

    I have only been on plan about 2 months. I was surprised to see whole eggs instead of egg whites in the recipe. With the rolled oats wouldn’t that make it a crossover? I see by the percentages that it is well within the fat limit. The recipe sounds great. Trying to learn and understand.
    Thanks,

      Hi and welcome, Shelia! That’s a great question!

      I found this does not slow down my weight loss, but everyone is different. 🙂

    I am egg free, and did the chia egg replacement – and it came out excellent! Great texture! Thank you for this recipe!!!
