Ingredients

Ingredients to make Peanut Butter Baked Oats laid out on grey background and labelled.

Oats
Rolled oats are the foundation for the batter of this peanut butter baked oats recipe. 

Peanut Butter
You can use smooth or crunchy peanut butter, whatever you prefer. If you want a gooey center to your baked oats, use a runnier peanut butter or combine some honey with the thicker peanut butter you already have.

Egg
Helps to bind all of the ingredients together. Also adds protein! You only need a small egg for this baked oats recipe. 

Milk Chocolate
I opted for milk chocolate to mimic the outside layer of chocolate on a Reese’s pieces (piece? lol). You could also use dark chocolate here though. Here’s some of my favorite recipes with milk chocolate for you to try … Chocolate Tiffin Cake, Chocolate Brownies and Chocolate Swirl Custard Toast

Oat Milk
Or your milk of choice! I like the flavour of oat milk in this recipe.

Tips and Tricks

  • Opt for a creamy peanut butter for a smoother texture or crunchy peanut butter for extra texture and nuttiness.
  • Sweetener options: Feel free to use brown sugar,  honey or maple syrup and adjust the amount based on your desired level of sweetness.
  • I used oat milk, but you can use any type of milk, whether dairy or plant-based. 
  • Customise the toppings: Once baked, after you drizzle the melted chocolate over the top, you can sprinkle chopped peanuts on top to enhance the flavor and presentation.

FAQs

I don’t have a blender, how can I make these?

You could combine the ingredients together with a whisk, which would give you more of an oat cake vibe which is equally delicious, just different in texture. Or alternatively you could buy oat flour (it is more expensive though).
If you’re looking for a reasonably priced blender that’s great quality, I use the Ninja Blender which is amazing. 

How long to cook baked oats?

Oven time will be dependent on your dish size. I used a shallow round ramekin (6 inches diameter), the cook time was 12 minutes. If you have a deeper ramekin that’s smaller in width, up the ocok time to 15+ minutes. 

Can I make these ahead of time?

This peanut butter baked oats recipe is best enjoyed as soon as you bake them. This is because you want the blended oats to be warm and the chocolate layer to be gooey & melted.
