Chef's Notes

Depending on the brand of peanut butter, the taste will obviously vary. I tried an all natural peanut butter from Trader Joe's(R) that I simply did not like. The 365(R) Whole Foods brand tastes much better in my opinion. You could also try adding some cinnamon if desired.


  1. I used quick oats because that s what I had. My son didn t mind and ate it happily. I also put a bad of jam on the side if he wanted it.
  2. I used old fashioned oats and made according to directions on box including the salt. The maple syrup peanut butter and brown sugar made this extra special along with a little half and half. I rated it 4 instead of 5 stars because without the salt it would be a little flat.
  3. I really liked this oatmeal it came out sweet and tasty. I was able to taste the peanut butter well. I also did throw in crushed almonds and raisins.
  4. Good recipe just add milk to make it a bit creamier and it is perfect!
  5. I liked this. Instead of steel cut oats, to save time, I used an equal amount of quick oats. I cooked them in the microwave with 1/2 cup of water for 2 minutes. They were perfectly cooked. For the peanut butter I used Jiff Creamy Natural peanut butter. I didn't have Whole Foods brand available. - Read more ...
  6. I have oatmeal almost every day for breakfast. I'm looking for new ways to change up my oatmeal new things to add to it. I was intrigued by the peanut butter so I gave this a try. I made this exactly as stated with the only differences being I used rolled oats (not quick cooking) - Read more ...
  7. Our first new recipe of the year New Years Day breakfast hubby and I both liked it. Made exactly as written except we used JIF peanut butter because we didn't have natural peanut butter...still very good but probably don't need the added brown sugar if you use regular PB.
  8. This was a nice comforting breakfast. Kids liked it. Will make again.:)
  9. I love oatmeal and I am always looking for a different way to prepare it. I really liked the peanut butter flavor in the oatmeal, but, I was not a big fan of the maple syrup. I would try it again, but, probably add a little milk to make it creamier and experiment with different - Read more ...
