Peanut Butter Oatmeal

Peanut Butter Oatmeal

(1 serving)    Printable Version
  • 1/2 cup oatmeal
  • 3 Tablespoons of peanut butter
  • 2 Tablespoons of maple syrup
Cook oatmeal according to package directions. Meanwhile place peanut butter and maple syrup in a cereal bowl. When oatmeal is done simply pour into bowl and stir.

Note From Mr Breakfast:

Thanks to "Muffin" for submitting this recipe. I've tried it many times now. It's easy and very versatile. The added maple syrup isn't really necessary because peanut butter on its own makes this a great oatmeal. But if you do want to jazz it up, also try a Tablespoon of your favorite jam or a little sprinkle of mini chocolate chips. This oatmeal also works beautifully with sliced bananas or fresh berries on top.

Try 2 tablespoons of honey instead of the maple syrup for an interesting twist.

Mr Breakfast would like to thank muffin for this recipe.

It is amazing! Love it so much. I used to hate oatmeal but now I don't because of this combination! Thanks!

I eat it with jif extra crunchy peanut butter, about 2-3 tbsp depending on your preference. It gives the oatmeal a little bit of salt, sugar, and texture. It's not bad, if your trying to eat healthier - thought of course, there are better-for-you peanut butters than jif.

I like it very much! Replace the syrup with strawberry jam for a peanut butter and jelly oatmeal, a big favorite of mine.

Wow, excellent! I never thought of adding peanut butter to oatmeal. Adds a good amount of extra protein to fill you up. Instead of using maple syrup I cut up a banana and put it in there, good for a healthy alternative to maple syrup.

TOO much peanut butter in this recipe. Cut it down for sure! And make sure to add something in for texture - I used some toasted almonds I had in my pantry.

I grew up on peanut butter and oatmeal. I use to put either grape jelly or bananas in mine as a topper.

Awesome idea! I'd recommend less peanut butter, though. I was worried when I compared this recipe to another that said only one tbsp of peanut butter, so instead of 6 tbsps (I made twice the amount), I did 4 tbsp (2 per 1/2 cup) and it is still almost too much peanut butter. My first bite before it was fully melted tasted like I was eating straight peanut butter out of the jar. Still amazing, though! I'm a college student out of food and saw that I had some oatmeal packets so I started recipe hunting. Thanks!

I, too, am eating this as I type. I only used 1 tbsp of Smart Balance crunchy peanut butter and a few drizzles of honey. Taste delicious and is filling.

Delicious! Use pb2 powdered peanut butter to cut some fat out. So great

A little too sweet for my tastes. I will usually cook the oats in the microwave, add in some unsalted peanuts the last minute (effectively toasting them), then stir in the peanut butter when it's done cooking.
