Chocolate Peanut Butter Baked Oats
Something I’ve really started to do on the blog lately is act like I know things about children when I’m actually never around them nor do I have any of my own. But since I was an extremely picky child who would only eat Little Debbie Swiss Rolls for any meal of the day, I feel like I have a strong understanding of what it’s like to be a child. And therefore, I know how to cook for them. And if I was cooking for an asshole child like me, I would be hiding nutrient dense foods in really tasty dishes. Parenthood is all about trickery, right? Well, my friend Cassy has a child who eats kale straight from the stem as a snack, so maybe there is hope for the small humans of the world. If I ever birth one, I’m going to copy my friend Cassy in hopes that my child isn’t a demon like I was and ends up demands broccoli instead of a bag of chocolate chips. Time will only tell, though.
Sometimes when I need to not do anything at all, I find myself gawking over baked oats recipes on instagram. It’s a real rabbit hole. You watch one video then swipe down to find 184038098490380 more videos just like it. It’s magical. You want a churro baked oats? They’ve got it. Peanut butter and jelly baked oats? Done. It’s such a magical way to eat oats…because it’s like cake. It’s straight up oatmeal cake and it’s lovely. And it’s so versatile! You know what you could even do if you’re trying to add even more nutrients into this dish? Add some beans or some spinach when you blend it. Boom, more nutrients and your child will never know about. Dummies. Speaking of dummies, I gotta get out to the pool here in Hawaii that has been BOMBARDED with children since I guess it’s spring break on the coasts. Wish me luck.

This was amazing!! So chocolatey and gooey!! I added chocolate peanut butter protein powder and needed almond milk to blend, it worked great!
yay!! that sounds amazing, Julie!
I did this too and I’m obsessed. I’ll vouch for you too Juli, kids eat this shit up. My 4 year old and 2 year old ask for “breakfast cake” pretty much every day now ❣️
wooot wooot!! that’s awesome!
So good! I’ve tried a few baked oats recipes so far, and this is my favorite yet. I’ve even added a 1/4c of black beans to it (+ maybe 2 tbsp of oat milk to blend) and it turned out AH-MAZ-ING. Thank you!
genius!! nice work!
This recipe was so yummy. I also added 2 T of almond/oat milk to help my blender mix it all together. Will be making it again soon.
Loved this! Forgot to blend peanut butter into the oats, but I loved the chocolate oats and the pb gooey center, so I think I’ll keep it that way for next time! This will definitely be consumed again!
