I love oatmeal, and try to eat it as often as I can, but it can get boring fast (side note: why does pizza never get boring?!?)
I’m always adding new things to my oats, and have eaten them every way you can imagine: steel cut, rolled, combination, with chocolate, nuts, yogurt. But still, I’ll try anything new. Like this recipe that tastes like a healthy peanut butter and jelly.
The oatmeal part is a simple mix of peanut butter and oats, and then you layer it in a jar with some berries and honey. The magic happens when you bake the jars and it becomes warm and jammy and comforting. It’s super filling, so you can eat it for breakfast and be full almost all day.
I make up a batch of 4 or 5 of these to eat during the week, and just use 6-8 ounce jars that are usually just old jam jars or whatever. But ramekins or any smallish ovenproof dish will work well. You can use any kind of peanut butter or nut butter you like, so use your favorite.
