The BEST Baked Peanut Butter Oatmeal Recipe at

Having family dinner time is important in our house, and most nights we eat dinner as a family. But breakfast is a meal that we rarely eat together.

I’m partially to blame because I’m not a big breakfast eater….but I’ve found if I actually cook breakfast, they will all get up and eat with me! Like, Baked Peanut Butter Oatmeal

Sometimes if I tell my daughters the night before what I plan on making for breakfast, one of them will get up in time to help me. But it has to be something really yummy to get them up for that! like Baked Peanut Butter Oatmeal haha

Oatmeal would not be something they would get up for, much less help me with…….but spike it with peanut butter, tell them it’s baked and will taste like a giant oatmeal cookie they can cover in milk……..and they’re racing to the kitchen to help!

Sneaky me…….oatmeal is both nutritious and deeply satisfying and a much better alternative to cold sugary cereal.

    That looks delicious!

  2. 2

    This looks soooo yummy! I’m the same way about breakfast. I don’t like to eat as soon as I get up so it messes up my day a bit. But I’m happy to cook on the weekend! I think I’ll add this to my list of things to make!

  3. 3

    I bought all of the ingredients to make this oatmeal this week!!!

  4. 4

    WOW!! Such brilliance!! I am loving this and cant wait to make it for my kiddies!!

  5. 5

    Okay not many people know this but my surfer is addicted to three things. Two of which are peanut butter and oatmeal. This will be made Sunday for him no matter what. Drool buckets love!!

  6. 6

    I didn’t even know you could do this! It looks SOOO good! Now, could I use pumpkin or something in place of the peanut butter? I have a non-peanut kid.

      I have done many other types of baked oatmeal, just google it and you’ll fine plenty of peanut free recipes. I typically do an apple/cinammon one, but going to try this one!

  7. 8

    I have made this several times and it is so yummy. I cut in to pieces, individually wrap and then freeze what we don’t eat for breakfast. We take out what we need for another breakfast or for a snack (just like eating a peanut butter cookie, not that I would know, he he). Love this recipe.

  8. 9

    This looks so yummy! gonna try this out this week! I have to admit: I love peanut butter!

  9. 10

    I’m going to have to try this with almond butter. I bet it is a great start to the day!

  10. 11

    This sounds fabulous! I’m licking my lips just thinking about it!

  11. 12

    This sounds delicious, almost like a peanut butter oatmeal cookie. By the way, I’m holding a CSN giveaway on my blog and you’re welcome to come by and enter.

  12. 13

    I love the idea of pouring milk over this oatmeal! My kids would go crazy for this.

  13. 14

    Oh my but this looks so good and interesting with the peanut butter. I love a hot bowl of porridge in the morning throughout the winter months. I just may have to try this out. For a wholesome snack, this recipe is perfect!

  14. 15

    I love this recipe! WIll be making it soon!

  15. 16

  17. 18

    I need to try this! It sounds so good! How long do the leftovers last?

    • 19

      I hope that made sense…I’m sure it’s gobbled up quickly, but can you keep leftover of this for a few days without it going bad?

  18. 20

    Oh, my!! This sounds delicious! I’m going to have to try it soon. Maybe even my pickiest breakfast eater will like this–my fingers are crossed!

  19. 21

    What a good idea! My hubby eats oatmeal every morning. We are going to have to try this!

  20. 22

    This is definitely going on my “must try” list!! Oatmeal cookies are my FAVORITE!!!

  21. 23

    Oh, yum! I am also trying to make more breakfasts for my family. I’ll serve this up tomorrow morning. Thank you.

  22. 24

    Making it tomorrow morning! Come link this up for a chance to win my Get Organized Giveaway!

  23. 25

    I like the idea of adding peanut butter to the baked oatmeal, I make this frequently.

  24. 26

    Oh my! This looks delicious, Cheryl!!!

  25. 27

    Oh my, thank you for sharing this recipe! My absolute favorite breakfast is pb & banana oatmeal on the stovetop, but I never thought of making it into a baked oatmeal. I’m going to have to give this a try and maybe try adding some mashed bananas as well!

  26. 28

    These look amazing

  27. 29

    Not sure if my comment worked before — let me try again..
    These look AMAZING!
    Thanks for sharing

  28. 30

    This is really tasty, and a welcome treat for me as I can’t eat wheat or sugar. I substituted soy nut butter for the peanut butter, stevia powder for the sugar, and added some mashed banana for more moisture and flavor. Great! Thanks!

  29. 31

    I’m making this right now as a dessert for after dinner! Thank you! I might put some melted chocolate chips on top to give it the “dessert” feel. ;)

  30. 32

    I just made this and it is yummy. I made a few changes.

    Instead of the 1/4 cup white sugar and 1/4 cup brown sugar I just used 1/2 cup raw sugar. I also used Adam’s peanut butter and added 1/2 cup raisins.

    I thought about adding chocolate chips but then remembered this is supposed to be breakfast not dessert. :)

    As someone who eats in the car on the way to work early in the morning, this looks like it will be put into my rotation of “something fast and something healthy”.!

  32. 34

    That looks delicious! And anything with peanut butter is amazing in my book :) Can’t wait to try this recipe – thanks for sharing!

  33. 35

  38. 40

    yum yum yum. i already love oatmeal and peanut butter, so i’m SOLD!

  39. 41

    Oh my goodness. This sounds so good. If I didn’t just make a HUGE batch of pumpkin oatmeal I might be making this for tomorrow’s breakfast. I love it. I’m bookmarking it *and tweeting!* because I need to have it in my “memory!” SO yum!

  40. 42

    This was the first thing I ever made on Pinterest (about a year and a half ago), and I had no idea there was such thing as baked oatmeal before! I make this all the time…I’m eating some as we speak…and I love that you told your kids it tastes like a big cookie. :) I’m going to tell my kids that as well, one day when I’m a mom. Thank you so much for introducing me to one of my new favorite breakfasts of all time. You’re awesome!
