Vegan MoFo 14: Baked Peanut Butter & Jelly Oatmeal

Oatmeal from aboveWhen my favorite breakfast and my beloved flavor combination come together it’s a heavenly collision of warm, creamy, nutty, jammy breakfast-goodness.  Making its way onto Buzzfeed’s 29 Ways to Honor the Glory of Peanut Butter & Jelly at Number 16, this recipe from The Roasted Root got my mouth watering in a big way.  I made it my own by adding some dried fruit, orange zest, and topping the oatmeal with jam instead of swirling it into the mix, but of course, that’s a swell idea, too.

  1. 1 cup uncooked steel-cut oats
  2. 2 cups water
  3. 1/4 cup crystallized ginger, minced
  4. 1/2 cup dried apricots, chopped
  5. 1/2 tsp. cinnamon
  6. pinch salt
  7. 1/3 cup smooth natural peanut butter
  8. zest of 1/2 an orange
  9. 3/4 cup non-dairy milk
  10. roasted peanuts, chopped, for garnish
  1. Combine the steel-cut oats and the 2 cups water in a medium-sized saucepan and let sit for several hours or overnight.
  2. Place 4-5 ramekins on a small baking dish and preheat the oven to 350F.
  3. Turn the heat on to medium-high and bring oats and water to a boil. Turn down the hit to a simmer and cook the oats until tender, between 5-10 minutes, adding more water if the mixture becomes too dry. Stir in the ginger, apricots, cinnamon, peanut butter, salt, and orange zest.
  4. When the peanut butter has been fully incorporated, remove the oats from the heat and stir in the milk.
  5. Divide the oats between the ramekins and bake for 10 minutes. Top the oatmeal with dollops of your favorite jam or jelly, sprinkle with chopped peanuts and additional milk and serve.

    Yet another most surprising idea, peanut butter mixed into oats?! It sounds like a very hearty and tasty breakfast, I love the idea of cinnamon and peanut butter together with those dried fruits and nuts.

    that looks SO good. I’ve been loving up the oats lately too. When the weather gets cold I’m craving, warm, sweet oats in my belly!

    I treated myself to some little ramekins yesterday so I’m excited to see a wonderful recipe I can use them for!
    I’ve never had baked oats before believe it or not! Crazy stuff.

    I’m slowly gettng back into my oatmeal mood again, now that the temps are starting to drop. I’m a big fan of baked oatmeal and I, of course, love this version! Totally need to find me some cute little ramekins.

    Really lovely photos. Especially love the little teacups filled up with goodies! I’ll have to make this sometime!

    To swirl or not to swirl that is the question. Who cares when there’s PB and ginger involved. Another great taste sensation ๐Ÿ™‚
