peanut butter baked oatmeal.

…want to know how many jars of nut butter I have in stock at a given time? Or how I may or may not go through about one jar each week?

Of course you don’t. Who cares.

But if you’re anything like me and have an extreme-to-average love for all things peanut butter, you’ll probably like this new way to enjoy breakfast.

{inspired by CCK’s baked oatmeal for one, adapted from my Nutella Baked Oatmeal}

ingredients:

  • 1/2 cup regular oats
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons smooth peanut butter (or any other nut butter)
  • 1/4 cup milk
  • sprinkle of cinnamon
  • pinch of salt
  • mix-ins like chocolate chips, nuts, dried fruit, etc. (optional)

directions: Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Place peanut butter in a bowl and microwave for 10-15 seconds. Add milk to bowl and whisk into the peanut butter until well-combined. Mix in the oats, cinnamon, and salt. Lightly grease an oven-safe bowl with cooking spray, and then pour the oatmeal into that bowl. Bake for 15 minutes. Let cool for 5 minutes.

What’s your go-to breakfast lately?

      Hey Jill! I love steel cut oats, and will have to give them a try next time I make this. I’ve never baked steel cut oats, though, so I’m not sure if they would get the soft/chewy consistency as regular oats (since they normally take longer to cook, if I remember correctly). If you give it a try, please let me know how it turns out! :)

    Hello!

    Made this for breakfast today and it was amazing! It had the consistency of a PB cookie :) I only had crunchy PB so I used 2 tablespoons. Also, I used unsweetened soy milk. I’m a PB addict and eat a jar a week too! I’ll have to try this with PB&Co’s flavored peanut butters – I bet White Chocolate Wonderful or Cinnamon Raisin Swirl would be incredible! Thanks Gracie :)
