Chocolate Chip Peanut Butter Baked Oatmeal

I really love baked oatmeal.  Pretty much any kind or flavor.  So much so that I thought this Chocolate Chip Peanut Butter Baked Oatmeal would be fantastic.  :)

I love the way these turned out.  Baking for just 20 minutes gives you a custardy like oatmeal that is firm but not dry.  And the melty chocolate chips are just amazing.  :)

I normally make a recipe for 2 people but this recipe is easy to cut in half.  You'll need some ramekins.  I use 1/2 cup ones.  So if you do it that way you'll need 4.  The other great thing about this recipe is you can make it in advance and put it in the fridge for the next morning.  About a minute in the microwave and its just as great as if it were straight out of the oven.  I haven't tried to freeze them yet but I bet that would work too.  

Chocolate Chip Peanut Butter Baked Oatmeal

1 c oats (either quick or regular)
1/2 t vanilla
1 T sugar (I've been using Madhava Coconut sugar)
1/2 c unsweetened apple sauce
1/2 c Mocha coffee mate (you could also use milk if you wanted less chocolate flavor)
1 T creamy peanut butter
1 T salted butter, melted (if you use unsalted, add a dash of salt)
handful of chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 375 degrees.  Grease all ramekins either with oil or cooking spray.  Combine all the dry ingredients in a medium bowl, then mix in the wet.  Spoon into ramekins.  Bake for 20 minutes.  (If you like your oatmeal really firm you can add a few more minutes).  Broil on high 3-5 minutes till it gets a nice crust.

Let cool 5 minutes before serving.

All I have to say is YUM!!


  1. Those look like something worth trying!

  2. I definitely recommend them. So much chocolate. And just the right amount of peanut butter. :)

  3. Chocolate chip peanut butter baked oatmeal is looking so delicious. I will definitely try this recipe on my week off. I have been using panakeorganics coconut sugar since 2013. It looks and tastes great.
