Warm and hearty, this Peanut Butter Banana Bread Baked Oatmeal is filled with all the comforting flavors of banana bread and peanut butter! This nutritious baked oatmeal is perfect for making at the beginning of the week and reheating it for a convenient breakfast the rest of the week!
I’m sure it comes as no surprise to you that I like breakfast food. I like to start my day off with something that tastes good.
Bland oatmeal, boring smoothies, and same old cereals just don’t do it for me! I need a delicious breakfast.
But, I also need a breakfast that either doesn’t take long to make or that can be made the night before and eaten the next day (yes, I’m kind of picky when it comes to breakfast!). One of my newfound favorites is peanut butter baked oatmeal.
It’s super versatile, filling, tastes good, and can be eaten the next day (Oh, and it’s nutritious!). All of my criteria met!
September is Better Breakfast Month and I’m keeping to the theme with this peanut butter banana bread baked oatmeal!
Since I like a filling breakfast, my baked oatmeals usually start with peanut butter.
It’s a good source of fiber, protein, good fats, and flavor. Peanut butter for breakfast is always a plus around here!
Add to the peanut butter some bananas, cinnamon, and nutmeg and you have peanut butter banana bread made nutritious for breakfast.
Throw in a few peanut butter chips for a bit of sweetness and you’ll discover that breakfast can be good for you and taste good!
It also doesn’t take long to whip together and it’s great for reheating individual servings as you all rush out the door at different times in the morning!
