Tools Needed

This recipe is so simple it’s practically foolproof – you’ll just need a few tools to get things going.

  • A blender to turn your oats into a flour and then mix everything together
  • A spoon for scooping (especially that delicious peanut butter center)
  • Oven safe bakeware. I used these cocottes from Le Creuset, which were the perfect size.
  • An oven for baking it all

Making Peanut Butter Banana Baked Oats

This has to be in the top 5 easiest recipes on my site. Seriously. All you do it blend things, bake them, and then eat them – it really doesn’t get better! To make these, you’ll need:

  • Oats (any work – I used old fashioned)
  • Milk of choice (can sub plant milk)
  • Banana (the riper the better)
  • Baking powder, which will help this fluff up when baking
  • A pinch of salt
  • Peanut butter (can use any nut butter)
  • Chocolate chunks (sub vegan to make this fully vegan)

You’ll want to blend your oats first, so they turn into a fine powder (oat flour). Then, add banana, milk, nut butter, baking powder, and salt and blend it all together until smooth. Spoon batter into your dishes, dotting with chocolate chunks as you go. Reserve about 1/4 cup of batter. Spoon 1/2 tbsp of peanut butter into the center of each ramekin, cover with remaining batter and additional chocolate chips on top. Bake at 350 for 30-35 minutes, and enjoy warm!
