peanut butter baked oatmeal


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!!
