Recently my Big Helper wanted to bake some dessert, but since I didn't have breakfast made for the next day, I asked her to work on that first. We started at one of our favorite foodie blogs, Lynn's Kitchen Adventures, to look for some inspiration. We ended up making a few minor changes to her Peanut Butter Baked Oatmeal recipe and came up with this.
This Peanut Butter & Chocolate Chip Baked Oatmeal comes out almost like a giant oatmeal cookie. It's soft and moist, peanut-y and with melted chocolate throughout. We love to eat this with a fork and a big glass of milk. One batch of this feeds my family of four for one meal, with a piece or two left over for later. Each child eats several pieces, but it keeps their tummies full until lunchtime.
So here's how to make Peanut Butter & Chocolate Chip Baked Oatmeal.
- 3 c. oats
- 1/4 c. brown sugar
- 1 c. milk
- 2 T. melted butter
- 2 eggs
- 2 t. baking powder
- 3/4 t. salt
- 2 t. vanilla
- 1/2 c. peanut butter
- 1/2 c. chocolate chips
- Stir together dry ingredients.
- Add wet ingredients.
- Spread evenly in a greased 9" x 13" pan.
- Bake for 25 minutes at 350 degrees.
- Serve warm.
