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

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.

  1. 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!

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

  3. 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!!

  4. 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.

    • Jami,
      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!

  5. 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.

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

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

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

  34. 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!

  35. 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. 😉

  36. 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. 🙂
