This Healthy Peanut Butter Baked Oatmeal is the perfect make-ahead breakfast recipe! It’s gluten-free, dairy-free, & vegan-friendly with no refined sugar!
We are finally settling back into our routine after the holidays. You are probably thinking that is quite a long time to get back into routine right? Well, the truth is that we moved at the beginning of the year and then had a family wedding in Mexico, plus some work traveling. So it was not until February that we were able to really beginning settling back into our daily life and routine. And I have to admit it feels pretty good. Yes, every now and then routine can become boring but for now, I think I am more very happy that it exists!
Part of our routine means that we are out of the house by 9 am. This might not sound that difficult. I mean is what most people do right? But try with a toddler and two dogs and I promise it gets a little bit more difficult.
This is the main reason why I love breakfast recipes you can prepare ahead of time and just reheat in the morning.
How to Prepare Peanut Butter Baked Oatmeal
This healthy Peanut Butter Banana Baked Oatmeal is great for the whole family and you can prepare a big batch over the weekend to get you through the whole week.
I also like to prepare my Peanut Butter Banana Ice Cream so that I can pair them together. Trust me the combination is unbelievable!
The great thing about this Peanut Butter Baked Oatmeal is that is very easy to take it on the go too. For those days where you just simply don’t have 5 minutes to eat breakfast.
For the oats, I like using Bobs Red Mill brand Gluten-free Oats, but if you don’t have any gluten sensitivity really any oats would work.
In this particular recipe, I used maple syrup as the sweetener but you can also use honey or agave.
Peanut Butter Baked Oatmeal Substitutions
Peanut Butter- If you don’t like Peanut Butter you can substitute for any nut or seed butter of your choice. I especially like it with almond butter as well.
Honey- Maple syrup or any other liquid sweetener of your choice can be used in place of honey.
Almond Milk– You can use any other milk of your choice. If you are not on the dairy-free team feel free to substitute for regular milk it works great too.
Add-ons- Feel free to change things around and try different spices. Or try adding any superfoods of your choice. I am a big fan of adding cacao nibs or shredded coconut.
