What a super breakfast or grab and go snack for anyone who wants something healthy, filling, and full of protein! My kids love oatmeal and peanut butter, so it just seemed natural to blend the two! I love making this Baked Peanut Butter Oatmeal for them because I know what ingredients when into what they are snacking on. Plus, it is so good!
Just whip up the ingredients in a large bowl, dump in a baking dish and bake for 20 minutes. This is so incredibly simple! My oldest daughter even makes this one herself now. Serve it hot out of the oven, or allow it to cool and cut it into bars for a grab and go snack! This stuff is perfect and oh so tasty. You can even mix it up by adding some chocolate chips, raisins, etc. The kids can’t get enough of this stuff. It’s a perfect way to sneak some added protein and fiber into their diet.
If you love peanut butter than you need to pull out all the stops and make these Homemade Peanut Butter Fudgesicles! These are a favorite treat for anyone that loves Peanut Butter and chocolate!
