I’ve been on an oat kick lately. Every time I see a recipe with oats, I have to investigate! This is no exception. Actually, this recipe came from a good friend via my inbox. She told me to try it months ago, more like a year ago, and it’s been sitting in my inbox ever since. Luckily, with my renewed love of oats combined with cleaning out my inbox, I was able to find this little gem. It’s wonderful! Even the hubs likes it!
- 3 cups quick cooking oats (I used old-fashioned oats)
- 1/2 cup brown sugar
- 1 cup of milk
- 2 tablespoons butter, melted
- 2 eggs
- 2 teaspoons baking powder
- 3/4 teaspoon salt
- 2 teaspoons vanilla
- 1/2 cup peanut butter
I mixed all the wet ingredients first; brown sugar, milk, butter, eggs, and vanilla. Then added the dry ingredients. After everything was mixed, I added in the peanut butter. Stir well.
Spread mixture into a greased 9×13 pan and bake at 350º for 20-25 minutes.
If you like it a little crunchy on top, cook for a few minutes longer. Serve with milk poured over top; dairy, soy or almond tastes great, or alone! I think this would be great with some dried fruit too. Yum. Enjoy!!
