  1. Place the frozen wild blueberries in a large bowl and set aside.
  2. In a small saucepan put the quick-cook steel cut oats, old fashioned rolled oats, whole husk psyllium husks, ground flax, stevia (plus more sweetener of choice, if you like things sweeter), mineral salt, and the water.
  3. Bring to a quick boil then turn down a little to let boil vigorously for another 5 minutes, stirring several times.
  4. Take off the heat and stir well with a fork for about 30 seconds (it will look goopy but don’t worry that will go away).
  5. Pour the cooked mixture over the bowl of frozen wild blueberries, cover the bowl and let sit for about 15 minutes so that it will set into a cobbler type breakfast before eating.

Exciting Facts About "Wild" Blueberries:

The benefits of wild blueberries are just incredible. Regular, cultivated blueberries are very healthy but in comparison, they only offer a fraction of wild blueberries' power. Here is a short list of benefits:

  • Twice the antioxidants of regular blueberries.
  • More potent brain fuel power.
  • Powerful prebiotics to help support your gut.
  • More natural ability to detox heavy metals and other poisons.
  • Cancer preventing and fighting substances (they also fight other diseases).
  • 30% less sugars than regular blueberries so easier on your glucose levels.
  • A more intense, sweet and tangy taste than regular blueberries

Glenda says: "If you prefer, you can make a double batch of the "Cookies & Cream Layer" and omit the "Black Cocoa Layer". However, the Black Cocoa Layer gives the bars a great taste."

Are you crazy for peanuts? Do you find yourself with a peanut butter jar and a spoon when times get tough? If you go nuts for nuts, then this recipe is a sane approach to soothing your addiction. Unlike most high-caloric peanut treats, which carry obscene amounts of calories and the guilt that goes with them, this scrumptious nutty indulgence is decadently rich in taste, but not in abuse to your body, and it is completely lactose-free. This recipe is found in the "Shakes, Smoothies, Frappas, and Thin Thicks" section of the Trim Healthy Mama Cookbook, page 411. A new tweak using the THM Choco-Peanut Pristine Whey Protein Powder can be found in the Recipe Notes area!

S-Version of Shake Gone Nuts:

You can easily convert this to an S treat by adding 1 tablespoon natural-style peanut butter and sprinkling some chopped roasted peanuts on top.  Delish—and you’re still not going overboard on peanut butter, just enjoying it wisely.

Special Note for our Turtles/Stubborn Losing and Allergen-free Mamas:

Those with elevated prolactin levels can omit the whey protein and use 1 to 2 scoops Integral Collagen instead. (Read the “Heads Up: Turtle Losers!” chapter in Trim Healthy Mama Plan for more about why elevated prolactin levels and whey protein are sometimes not compatible.) Allergen-free Mamas who cannot even tolerate whey protein (it is lactose free, so many do fine with it) can stick to the collagen and leave out any cottage cheese.

Simply omit the collagen and the stevia and add a full scoop of the THM Pristine Whey Choco-Peanut Flavor!!!

For a Shake Gone Choco-Nuts version...

Simply omit the collagen and the stevia and add a full scoop of the THM Choco-Peanut Pristine Whey Protein Powder.

  1. Combine the gelatin with ½ cup of the water in a small bowl and stir a little, not a lot. Allow to sit so the gelatin dissolves.
  2. Place the remaining 1 cup water in a small saucepan over high heat and bring to a rapid boil.
  3. In a large bowl, combine the sweetener, xanthan, vanilla, and salt. Add the gelatin mixture, then slowly pour in the boiling water. Start beating on high speed until the mixture gets thick and marshmallow-like. Be patient; it takes a while. After beating for the first 5 minutes, add the whey protein a little at a time, then beat for another few minutes.
  4. Pour the mixture into a parchment-lined 9 × 13-inch pan and spread it out with a spatula. Place in the refrigerator and chill for at least 2 hours. Cut into squares.

  1. Mix together the egg, Baking Blend, sweetener, nut milk, baking powder, vanilla (if using), and coconut oil (if using) in a small bowl, stirring with a whisk or fork. Add a couple more tablespoons nut milk if needed to get the perfect batter consistency. Add the chocolate chips and stir again. Let sit for a few minutes while you heat the griddle.
  2. Turn an electric griddle to medium heat. Once hot, coat with coconut oil cooking spray or a smear of butter. Ladle on the pancake batter to make 3 or 4 pancakes. Cook on one side for about 3 minutes, then flip to brown the other side for a couple minutes.
  3. Top with a dollop of extra butter (or coconut oil if dairy-free) and pancake syrup or chocolate syrup.
Recipe Notes

If you are a Drive-Thru Sue, find a store-bought sugar-free syrup as close to plan as possible. An erythritol/stevia-sweetened syrup would be optimum but harder to find in stores (until we release our own brand... hopefully soon!), but you can get away with some sorbitol-sweetened syrup here and there. Avoid maltitol if you can.
