Peanut butter and jelly oatmeal! I mean you’ve probably thought of it, everything has been done before and nothing is new buttttt I promise this recipe will blow your mind!
Growing up our parents and grandparents would always try and feed us bland mush and call it oatmeal. Every time we would resist it! I’m not blaming our parents or grandparents for not knowing that oatmeal could be so amazing, they didn’t have access to the internet like us so they had an excuse. Us on the other hand have zero excuses to continuing to think oatmeal is a bland, tasteless mushy endeavor. We have access to the internet and I’m here to teach all about how amazing oatmeal can be! This peanut butter and jelly oatmeal recipe will be sure to change your mind!
If you’ve been following me for a while now, you know I like oatmeal… like I really like oatmeal. I started a gang around it on my youtube channel, if you want to join all you have to do is send me pics of your oatmeal and use the hashtag #oatmealgang when you post about oatmeal. Easy right!?
Okay, if you’re new here you might think I’ve lost it, and you wouldn’t be wrong lol but hear me out on this oatmeal really is the best, everyone has just been sleeping on it forever because they had super bland oatmeal as kids.
The thing is though not only does oatmeal come in several different forms but what you decide to top it with and mix in is endless! So let’s talk about oats!
Peanut Butter and Jelly Oatmeal
It has been a minute since I made anything with peanut butter.
I have been very cautious about peanut butter lately. Ever since John moved to Vancouver, I have realized that if I make anything with peanut butter, I will need to eat it all myself. No bringing it to school because it is a nut free environment. No giving it to my friends because a lot of them have nut allergies. It would be all for me to eat.
Not that that is really a bad thing. I am all for eating all of the sweet treats, especially when there is peanut butter in it. But just for convenience sake, I have been avoiding it. I love sharing my recipes with others, and having peanut butter in my foods means I can’t share it with the people around me.
But this Peanut Butter and Jelly Oatmeal? It is not meant for sharing. It is alll for me.
This Peanut Butter and Jelly Oatmeal brings me back to my high school days.
I remember back when I was in high school, we did not have a nut free rule. I guess they trusted that we wouldn’t throw peanut butter at each other. Anyways, every day for lunch, I made me, my sister and my brother peanut butter and jelly sandwiches for lunch in the morning.
Even as a teenager, I was an early riser, so I would be tasked with lunch making. And you all know that I go through periods of food obsessions. My entire high school career was a Peanut Butter and Jelly obsession.
Now in my twenties, all I want for breakfast is oatmeal.
My current oatmeal obsession is being combined with my high school Peanut Butter and Jelly obsession to form one of my favourite oatmeal combinations of all time. This Peanut Butter and Jelly Oatmeal.
Super easy to make, this oatmeal can also be made vegan and satisfies ALL of my cravings! This oatmeal is so good, who would want to share!
MY BEST TIP FOR MAKING OATMEAL CUPS:
- I used to make my oatmeal cups without lining my muffin pan which made it difficult to clean. I decided to buy some silicone muffin pan liners. They have worked SO WELL and I will never go back to my old ways. When my cups finish baking they slide right out with no issue. Pictured below are the liners I purchased. They’re affordable, cute and dishwasher safe. Highly recommend!
Peanut Butter and Jelly Oatmeal Bars
Sometimes you just crave peanut butter and jelly. I don’t eat it often but boy is it good when I do. When I’m making one for myself I usually slather the peanut butter about an inch thick and then the jelly has to be slathered on. When I eat the sandwich the jelly is usually dripping off! I look like a little kid that’s made their very first sandwich. This time I decided to cut out the bread and just make a dessert. Enter Peanut Butter & Jelly Oatmeal Bars.
When I first took them out of the oven I let them cool for a bit but I couldn’t wait long. They’re delicious warm but a bit crumbly. Nothing compared to the dripping jelly of a sandwich, and definitely worth it! They’ll be a huge hit with the kids in you house, not to mention the grown ups!
