I do love a bowl of hot oatmeal for breakfast. But I’m kind of picky on how that oatmeal has to be. It cannot be watery or slimy. Yeah, I pretty much only add a little bit of water and make it thick. Oh, but it can’t be thick like paste either. And it has to have brown sugar and raisins in it. It’s ok, I know what a picky oatmeal eater I am.
A few years ago I tried a Baked Biscoff Oatmeal and really enjoyed eating oatmeal that way. I had completely forgotten about it until awhile ago when I was trying to come up with something different for our kids to eat for breakfast. That one stood out from the old recipes, and I knew I need to make it again.
For this baked oatmeal I took one of my favorite sandwich flavors and turned it into breakfast food. I can remember eating peanut butter and honey sandwiches for school. The honey would soak into the bread and kind of harden by the time it was lunch time. Those sandwiches were so good. Of course it may have been because I would soak the bread with honey.
This baked oatmeal has peanut butter and a few chocolate chips mixed into the batter. Gotta have some chocolate for breakfast…at least that’s what my daughter tells me. She’s right you know. 🙂
And another great thing about this oatmeal is that it is really pretty healthy for you.
There is no butter or oil in it. The peanut butter and applesauce give it all the goodness it needs. Now there is a little bit of sugar and the chocolate, but when you spread it over the whole pan, it isn’t very much. Well, unless you eat the whole pan by yourself. And trust me, that is easy to do.
This oatmeal is great because it bakes pretty sturdy. You can just about eat it as a granola bar if you eat it cold. The first day I had some cold with a little bit of honey and a little bit more chocolate. Oh, it was so delicious.
But then the second day, I popped the plate in the microwave for about 20 seconds, drizzled on the honey, and sprinkled some chips and about died when I took a bite!!! Seriously!!! You need to try this warm! It will blow your mind!!! The honey soaks into the oatmeal and the chocolate chips get all melty and amazing!
There is a second pan waiting on our counter now because I may have finished off most of the first pan! Trust me and make yourself a pan today!!!
