Peanut Butter Banana Baked Oatmeal brings two classic flavors together in a hearty and healthy breakfast to keep your family full and energized all day!
Baked Oatmeal, A Breakfast Favorite!
If you’re like me, you grew up eating those little packets of oatmeal for breakfast. You know the ones, add a little water or milk and microwave them for a few seconds. I always thought they were pretty good until I started making my own oatmeal! Those little microwave packets don’t hold a candle to homemade oatmeal, especially baked oatmeal. Baked oatmeal is my favorite, have you tried my peach almond baked oatmeal? SO good!
I am currently loving this peanut butter banana baked oatmeal. Bananas and peanut butter are the real dream team of breakfast. I love having them paired up in this baked oatmeal! The peanut butter makes it so creamy and flavorful, and bananas add that perfect sweetness. I think you’ll love how quickly this comes together and how delicious the results are!
Healthy Baked Oatmeal
We love starting our day with peanut butter banana baked oatmeal, it is the perfect healthy breakfast recipe. The peanut butter adds protein, and you’re getting potassium, Vitamin C, and fiber from the bananas. Oatmeal has also been shown to lower cholesterol levels and will keep you full for hours!
The baked oatmeal is naturally sweetened with honey and only two tablespoons. The bananas add lots of sweetness too so you don’t need to add sugar.
How to Make Baked Oatmeal
- Preheat your oven to 350 degrees F. Grease an 8×8-inch baking pan with nonstick cooking spray and set aside. If you want to double the recipe, you can to make a 9×13 pan!
- In a medium bowl, combine your dry ingredients: oats, baking powder, cinnamon, and salt. Make sure you use old fashioned oats and not quick oats.
- Baked oatmeal is a great way to use the bananas sitting on your counter! Once they turn a little brown, they’re perfect for mashing and mixing into a baked oatmeal.
- In a large bowl, combine the mashed bananas and peanut butter, stirring until smooth. I use natural creamy peanut butter, but you can use your favorite brand. Add in the honey, egg, milk, and vanilla extract. Stir until well combined.
- Add dry ingredients to the wet ingredients and stir. Pour the oatmeal mixture into the prepared pan.
- Bake for 23-25 minutes or until the oatmeal is set or until the oatmeal springs back when lightly touched and is slightly golden brown around the edges.
- Remove from the oven and cut into squares. Serve warm with banana slices and a drizzle of peanut butter and honey, if desired.
Kids Love Baked Oatmeal
This is a delicious recipe for the whole family! Baked oatmeal is a great breakfast for before school since it’s hearty and healthy. I always feel good knowing my kids will stay full until lunch time and have the energy for a morning of learning and playing.
The boys will sometimes ask for this peanut butter banana baked oatmeal as an after school snack too! It’s really good anytime of the day!
How to Store
If you have leftovers, don’t throw them out! The leftovers are a lifesaver! You can keep the remaining baked oatmeal in the refrigerator for up to a week. Just reheat it when you’re ready to enjoy!
I love making a huge batch on Sunday and enjoying it all week. Adding a splash of milk is a great way to perk up your bowl of baked oatmeal before eating.
