I feel like this is a breakfast that doesn’t really need much of an intro… Chocolate Peanut Butter Baked Oatmeal basically speaks for itself in the fact that it contains quite possibly the most epic food combo of all time: chocolate and peanut butter. Chocolate and peanut butter are obviously an epic combo by themselves, but when you bake them in with warm cozy oatmeal… let’s just say they get even better! Multiply that by the fact that this recipe only has 8 ingredients and takes 35 minutes to make and you’ve got an epic breakfast!
Baked oatmeal has been one of my favorite breakfasts for a while now. When I was in college I would meal prep things like this Healthy Blueberry Baked Oatmeal, or Healthy Tropical Baked Oatmeal to eat in the mornings. I could bake the oatmeal on Sunday, and portion it out so i just had to pop it into the microwave and head out the door on busy mornings – it was awesome! Now that I work from home, I have the luxury of getting to actually sit down and have whatever I want for breakfast – but I still occasionally will meal prep baked oatmeal like this so I don’t have to think about it!
Even though I love having fruit in my oatmeal, adding in chocolate and peanut butter seemed like a pretty delicious idea. It’s nearly impossible to screw anything up when you’re adding in chocolate and peanut butter, and let me just tell you.. when this was in the oven I could already tell this would be infinitely more delicious than any other baked oatmeal I’d ever made!
When this Chocolate Peanut Butter Baked Oatmeal came out of the oven, it smelled like peanut butter chocolate oatmeal cookies. The whole kitchen smelled like a bakery, and the melty chocolate chips were all but calling my name. So I dug into it right then and there.. mid afternoon. And ate an entire serving. Let me tell you: no regrets whatsoever. After a few bites I decided that I could make this even better by adding a drizzle of peanut butter right on top… so that’s what I did, and it was EPIC.
Melty peanut butter, sweet chocolate, warm oatmeal… it’s basically the breakfast combo of the century, and you totally have to try it!
Baked Oatmeal Substitutions:
- Skip the chocolate: Baked oatmeal is pretty flexible and you can make a lot of substitutions to it. If you want to skip the chocolate you can sub in fruit. I’d check out this Healthy Blueberry Baked Oatmeal if you’re looking for a fruit oatmeal recipe!
- Make it vegan : sub egg for one flax egg, sub honey for maple syrup, make sure to use a dairy free chocolate chip
- Make it gluten free: make sure you’re using gluten free certified rolled oats.
- Optional add ins: chopped nuts, more chocolate, shredded coconut, fresh fruit
How long can you keep baked oatmeal for?
You can keep baked oatmeal stored in the refrigerator for up to a week. If you don’t plan to eat it before then, I would slice it, wrap into individual pieces and place them in the freezer. Then you can just quickly defrost when needed!
