I eat oatmeal nearly every day. If I have the day off from work, I eat it for breakfast. If I am working that day, then I eat it for lunch or supper. It is just so, so easy to grab a packet and throw it in the microwave. My go to flavor is usually maple brown sugar. About the only flavor that actually tastes as good as it smells!
With all of my blog searching or some may call it stalking, I have seen several posts and recipes for baked oatmeal. All of them with different flavor combinations. And of course for my first attempt at baked oatmeal I chose the one with peanut butter! But I am now dying to try the pumpkin pie baked oatmeal.
This truly looked, smelt, and tasted like a peanut butter oatmeal cookie. It was fluffy around the outside and gooey in the middle! Definitely have a glass of milk handy when you eat this. Trust me, you will need it. The site where I found this recipe also recommends serving with warmed milk poured over the top. You could also top with sliced bananas, chocolate chips, maple syrup, or yogurt. Once again the possibilities are endless! Love versatile dishes!
One giant peanut butter oatmeal cookie!!
The oh so gooey middle!! Holy yum!
