This is a quick and tasty oatmeal recipe that I've really enjoyed. Even my daughter who doesn't like oatmeal will eat this right up!

Ingredients

Directions

  • Bring water to a boil in a saucepan, stir steel cut oats into water, and reduce heat to medium-low. Cover and cook until oats are tender, 5 to 7 minutes, stirring occasionally. Remove from heat and let stand 1 minute.

  • Stir peanut butter, maple syrup, and brown sugar into oats.

Cook's Note:

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.

It was way too much liquid and turned out like soup. I had to throw it away.

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 sweeteners like honey or agave.

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. I also assumed quick oats are not as hardy as steel cut so I halved the peanut butter and maple syrup. I went to do the same with the brown sugar but it just seemed like it needed more. I added 2 more pinches of brown sugar which may have came to at most 1 tsp. With the extra brown sugar and a quick sprinkle of salt the flavors seemed more balanced. I forgot how quick it is to make a bowl of hot cereal in the microwave. I may make this again as a change to all of the fruit flavored oatmeal recipes. Calories as made in my notes came to 1 serving at 118.6 calories. ty this was very filling this morning with a hot cup of coffee.

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.

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) and Jif peanut butter because these are what I had on hand. It was suprisingly good but I'll have to make adjustments for my personal taste to make it great. The dish wasn't as sweet as I thought it was going to be which isn't necessarily a bad thing just not what I was expecting. The peanut butter muted the maple flavor and sweetness. The peanut butter also gave the oatmeal a wonderful creamy consistency which I loved! However it was slightly on the bland side not terribly bland but bland enough that I will have to tweak the recipe. Possibly add raisins cinnamon maybe add more maple syrup or walnuts. It's a good starting point though and gives me ideas for different ways to serve oatmeal. I'm very grateful for that thanks!

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.

I put less milk in it put it in the refrigerator overnight and heated it in the microwave in the morning. It's a great way to have a quick breakfast.
