If giggling like a school kid over PB & J oatmeal first thing in the morning keeps you young, then I’m back in the 2nd grade. “It’s like a peanut butter and jelly sandwich all mashed up in a bowl” (giggle giggle), was the boyfriend’s comment.  We’re serious food people.

Hey, PB pal, take a dive into my oatmeal and meeeeeelt away! My love for peanut butter is no mystery and I’ve thought about adding it to oatmeal for quite some time, but couldn’t bring myself to do it until. now. What would happen to my beloved oats? More importantly, what would happen to my darling peanut butter?

Awesomeness is the answer. Pure awesomeness.  On account of the peanut butter, this oatmeal turns out with a creamy texture (thanks PB, you never do me wrong) and you know what the jam does. The jam just. does. The fact that it’s baked makes it even better…baked oatmeal is booooonkers!

Dear PB&J Baked Oatmeal, when I look at you, I feel as though I’m looking in the mirror.

If you want to have a schoolyard kid moment with your significant other, make PB&J Baked Oatmeal for breakfast. You’ll giggle. The only thing you’ll talk about is what type of jam to use. It’s the only thing that will matter and the matter is serious, so tread lightly. The reality of being an adult won’t phase you the whole time you eat this. So make a big portion; that’d be smart.

The funnest baked oatmeal in town!

Ingredients

  • 2 cups old fashioned rolled oats
  • 3 tablespoons unsalted, unsweetened peanut butter
  • 4 tablespoons your favorite jam/preserves*
  • 2 cups boiling water
  • ½ cup to 3/4 milk of choice, adjust to desired creaminess

Instructions

  1. Heat a tea kettle and bring water to a boil.
  2. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
  3. Add all ingredients to a mixing bowl and pour in the 2 cups of boiling water. Stir until there are no chunks of peanut butter.
  4. Divvy up the oatmeal mixture between two to four ramekins (or oven-safe bowls) and bake in the oven for 10 to 12 minutes. Oatmeal is done when the liquid is absorbed and the oatmeal is fragrant.

*cranberry or raspberry are my favorite preserves for thie breakfast. Adjust amount of jam/preserves according to your sweet tooth. You can also skip the jam/preserves and serve with fresh fruit.

Can you make this in one large baking pan instead of ramekins? I'm hoping the consistency would come out the same, but not sure how to adjust the baking time. Thanks!!

Is there any way to make one serving in this in the microwave? My mom thinks cooking few servings in the oven isn't energy efficient. Much appreciated.

Hi Kayla, I've made a personal-sized portion of this recipe many times, so you can definitely cut it in half or a third. Although I've never made oatmeal in the microwave, I'm certain it can be done. Give it a try by halving the recipe and following all the same steps as outlined in my instructions - maybe microwave for 45 to 60 seconds to start out with and stir a few times? Let me know how it turns out! :)

Lovely recipe, but I think the stated number of servings is wrong. 1/2 cup of oats (50g) is a standard serving size, so your recipe actually serves 4 very decent sized portions. I halved the quantities, as I only needed enough for 2 people and it was absolutely, 100% enough! The recipe is so rich, you don't need more than a standard size serving.

In fact, next time I make it, I may even reduce the milk and up the water to make it slightly less rich - I wasn't actually sure I'd be able to finish my portion (and I am a great believer in a decent breakfast and always wake up starving, so that's saying something!!)

So glad you tried the recipe and that you enjoyed it! You make a great point about serving size - my boyfriend and I eat like wolverines, far more than standard serving sizes... so I changed my "2 to 3" serving size to "3 to 4". Thanks for pointing this out and hope you enjoy the rest of your weekend! :)

Wait... Step 1 says to heat a tea kettle and bring to boil, but it doesn't say what to do with it?? Do i cook the oats first or no ?

My apologies for the confusion. You pour boiling water over the oats (and the rest of the ingredients), give it a stir and pop it in the oven until all of the water/milk is absorbed. This usually takes 10-15 minutes depending on your portion size :)
