Baked Oatmeal

Why has it taken me so long to try this. I am not a fan of oatmeal, but I recently made myself give up the single serving packets and make my own. Now, technically oatmeal doesn't fall into the ME diet as I am supposed to be only eating 3-5 bites of carbs a meal, but oatmeal is good for nursing mothers - so I adjust.

Anyways, I was craving oatmeal last night (after eating to much sugar, I know I gave it up but its back) and the family wanted pizza. As I was making it, I was cutting up a pear to put in it and remembered a recipe for blueberry baked oatmeal. I figured I could make a pear baked oatmeal just as easy. I searched the interwebs and found a recipe that had almost everything I had at home.  Tweaking it to my ingredients and 45 minutes later I had dessert ready for breakfast.

I think this might be my new favorite breakfast, to help it fit in with my diet plan I added three turkey sausages to my breakfast this morning and only doubled my carb bites. 

Speaking of diet, I started December strong and then slipped a little. Right now, my goal has changed to not gain. Which is actually going to be difficult. We have 3 Christmas celebrations, plus a couple days after Christmas we will be heading to Disneyland. I can only hope all the walking will do me good.

What is your favorite breakfast?


  1. I wish I liked oatmeal! Maybe I will try this recipe:) I started a Dietbet to keep myself on track in the new year:) You should join! I will be sending out 2 workouts a week for 4 weeks. Have fun in Disneyland!

  2. I am resolved to try and not gain any more this month too…maintaining among the holidays is huge…then kick off the New Year right...
