These peanut butter and jelly baked oats are the most delicious way to start your morning! Creamy peanut butter, your favorite jelly, and just a touch of maple syrup are what make this recipe special. Whip up these peanut butter and jelly baked oats on mornings when you want something that’s perfectly sweet, comforting, and oh-so-satisfying.
The baked oats life chose me. The carrot cake baked oats recipe I shared a few months back literally blew UP! Everyone was going crazy over that recipe, and tbh I don’t totally blame them. Though while the carrot cake version is delicious, I wanted to give you guys options. So I brainstormed some classic favorite flavor combos and ultimately landed on peanut butter and jelly. There is nothing more iconically wholesome than peanut butter and jelly. And when added to baked oats, the results is truly comfort food made HEALTHY.
What You Need To Make Peanut Butter and Jelly Baked Oats
Rolled Oats – Oats are an ideal breakfast, with plenty of vitamins, mineral, and health benefits! Feel free to use either rolled oats or quick oats in this recipe – both will work. I almost always have a bag of rolled oats in my house as an easy and versatile gluten-free grain.
Banana – You can use either a mashed banana or half a cup of apple sauce in this recipe. The mashed fruit act as a fort of egg-replacer in this vegan breakfast recipe.
Peanut Butter – I’d recommend opting for smooth peanut butter if you have it, but if not crunchy will work too. Though keep in mind that the peanut butter will be blended with all ingredients in the second step. Therefore, if you use crunchy, there’s a good chance it will be no longer crunchy by the end of this recipe.
Jam – Go crazy with this one! Literally use whatever jam or jelly your heart desires. I had some homemade blueberry jam lying around, so I used that. But i’m sure any jam or jelly flavor will taste incredible in these peanut butter and jelly baked oats!
Adjust This Recipe To Your Dietary Needs
Add Protein: Feel free to add a tablespoon of your favorite protein powder to increase the protein in these baked oats. If you end up adding protein powder, I’d recommend increasing the almond milk amount to 1/2 cup instead of 1/3 cup.
Make it Grain-Free: To make these peanut butter and jelly baked oats grain-free, use coconut flour in place of the rolled oats.
