Happy Father’s Day! Your dad’s inner kid will love the PB&J flavors of the oatmeal bake and it’s so easy to make. Just don’t forget the eggs and bacon on the side!
I adapted this recipe from one of my oatmeal muffin recipes (which I’m also obsessed with, btw). Hopefully I’ll get to make a few spins on this recipe in the near future too! Can you hear the wheels turning already?If you frequent Peanut Butter and Fitness, you may have noticed some changes to the advertising on the site recently. I’m bummed to have had to add more ads than what used to be on the site, but honestly, I spend a lot of money testing, making and photographing all the recipes you see on here.
So…I decided to join an ad network (Mediavine) that will pay me more than what I was making with Google AdSense. I hope you guys don’t think I’m a sellout 😉 And I sincerely hope everyone enjoys their experience here!
Okay, enough about boring financial stuff – it’s time for me to do some homework and for you to go make this for the father-figure in your life!
PB&J Oatmeal Bake
- 2 cups rolled oats
- 2 scoops Jay Robb vanilla whey protein
- 2 tbsp PB2 powdered peanut butter
- 1/2 tsp baking powder
- 1/4 tsp cinnamon
- 1 cup sliced strawberries
- 1 cup unsweetened applesauce
- 1/4 cup low sodium, low sugar peanut butter melted
- 1/4 cup unsweetened vanilla almond milk
- 3 tbsp pure maple syrup
- 2 egg whites
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
Optional Strawberry "Jelly" Drizzle
- 1/2 cup strawberries chopped
- 1/2 tbsp maple syrup
Make strawberry jelly drizzle if desired. Add strawberries and maple syrup to a small pan and bring to a boil over medium heat, then lower heat to a simmer for 10-15 minutes. Allow to cool slightly, then puree in a food processor or blender. Set aside.
Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees. Grease a baking dish with coconut oil and set aside.
Combine all dry ingredients, then add wet ingredients and mix until just combined. Pour into prepared casserole dish and spread evenly.
Top with additional strawberries and/or some of the optional strawberry jelly if desired.
Bake at 350 degrees for 30-35 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.
Cut into 6 pieces and drizzle with remaining strawberry jelly and additional melted peanut butter if desired.
I used a casserole dish like this to make mine.
