Breakfast just got more interesting with this Baked Peanut Butter & Banana Oatmeal. A warm cozy breakfast made with rolled oats, banana and a generous bits and pieces of chocolate chips. Call it dessert for breakfast if you like. It is still the delicious oatmeal that we all love, but prepared slightly different than the traditional way. It is always good to try something new.
Today I am going to share with you another oatmeal recipe, this time around we are going to make simple, delicious and easy to make Baked Peanut Butter & Banana Oatmeal. Just like my Baked Apple Pie Oatmeal, this oatmeal was baked in the oven, loaded with indulgent chocolate chips and a spoonful of peanut butter to give it a nice creamy delicious flavor.
If you are not into peanut butter, you can totally skip it, but I highly recommend you try it. It does makes a difference with peanut butter in it.
What are the Ingredients to Make Baked Banana and Peanut Butter Oatmeal?
- Banana – Use ripe but not too ripe banana. Not the kind that you will use when making banana bread, those are too ripe. You want something ripe but still firm so that you still get slices of banana after baking.
- Peanut Butter – I like using creamy peanut butter, you can also substitute with chunky or any kind of nut butter.
- Egg – use room temperature egg for easy mixing
- Maple Syrup – Can be substituted with other sweetener of your choice, the likes of Honey, Agave or any plant based sweetener. Please remember to add gradually as measurement for each type of sweetener could vary. It is always safe to add less, you can drizzle some maple syrup or honey once baked if you find that it needs additional sweetness.
- Milk – Any type of milk will work. I used my homemade Oat Milk
- Vanilla Extract – For flavoring, can be substituted with cinnamon or almond extract.
- Rolled Oats – Do not use quick cooking oats as that kind of oats are soft and will get really mushy when soaked and baked.
- Salt – Very important, so do not skip this. It adds a nice balance to sweetness, a subtle saltiness makes the oatmeal taste even better.
- Cinnamon Powder – add as much or less as you like. I like mine with just a small amount. You can also use pumpkin spice, all spice etc.
- Baking Soda – To give a little lift to the oatmeal, after all we are baking this.
- Chocolate Chips – dark or semi sweet or mix of both. You can also use chopped chocolate

If you watch the video, you will noticed that I mixed the wet ingredients first then added the mashed banana and dry ingredients. The order that you add the ingredients doesn’t matter that much. I find the easiest way is to just use one bowl, mash the banana and add all the ingredients there. Just do not want to redo the video as either way it works.
