Be transported back to your childhood with a delicious Peanut Butter & Jelly Oatmeal Bake. Made with simple, wholesome ingredients, this is the perfect oatmeal recipe to fuel your day. Plus it’s gluten free, dairy free, and comes together in less than 30 minutes!
By now I think we can all agree that oatmeal bars essentially run through my veins. Shoot so far I’ve made chocolate chip oatmeal bars, lemon blueberry oatmeal bars, double chocolate zucchini oatmeal bars, and more. So many of you guys have been loving these super easy delicious bars and tagging me on Instagram, it truly makes my day! Logically the next step had to be to bring together my love for an oatmeal bake combined with the childhood classic peanut butter and jelly.
Awwww peanut butter and jelly, is there anything better?? Although, quick side note, as a kid I actually hated peanut butter for a while and ate jelly-only sandwiches. I know, I was a weird one for sure. Obviously peanut butter and I have come quite a long way since then and now are essentially bffs and get together on the daily. Thus I give you the most delicious Peanut Butter & Jelly Oatmeal Bake! Salty, creamy peanut butter combined with perfectly sweet jam in one delicious nostalgic bite.
Some of the many reasons you’ll love this Peanut Butter & Jelly Oatmeal Bake:
- Super easy 1 – bowl recipe. Less dishes anyone? I think yes!
- Naturally gluten free, dairy free, and refined sugar free.
- Full of wholesome and healthy ingredients.
- Only takes 30 minutes from start to finish.
- Dense, chewy, and actually delicious.
- Breakfast bake prepped for the week = more time to fold that laundry that I know has been sitting done in your dryer for a week by now. Or let your future self worry about said laundry and keep binge watching Netflix. Either works honestly.
Lets take a look at some of the ingredients:
Mashed Banana – not into or allergic to bananas? Applesauce works as a great substitute! one mashed banana = about 1/3 cup applesauce
Eggs – I haven’t tried replacing the eggs with flax or chia eggs so if you do let me know in the comments!
Maple Syrup – If you don’t have maple syrup you can replace it with any liquid sweetener, honey, agave, etc.
Nut Milk – Really any milk will work here! Nut milk, coconut milk, dairy milk, etc. Cashew milk is my personal favorite.
Old Fashion Rolled Oatmeal – I don’t recommend using steel cut or instant oatmeal, stick with the old fashioned rolled oatmeal.
Oat Flour – This is my favorite oat flour but you can also make your own by blending rolled oatmeal in a food processor or blender. All purpose or gluten free flour should work as possible substitutes.
Jam of Choice – What’s your favorite flavor?? Strawberry is definitely my favorite so I used this strawberry jam. Trying to really cut back on sugar? Skip the jam and top with diced fresh or frozen fruit! Blueberries and strawberries would be particularly yummy.

Be transported back to your childhood with a delicious Peanut Butter & Jelly Oatmeal Bake. The perfect oatmeal recipe to fuel your day.
- 1 super ripe banana, mashed
- 1 egg
- 1 tsp vanilla
- 3 tbsp maple syrup
- 1/3 cup creamy peanut butter
- 1/2 cup nut milk
- 1 cup rolled oatmeal
- 1 1/2 cup oat flour
- 1 tsp baking powder
- 1/2 tsp pinch of salt (if your peanut butter is unsalted)
- 1/3 cup jam of choice (I used this strawberry jam)
- Preheat the oven to 350 F and line a 9×9 pan with parchment paper (or spray with non-stick spray) and set aside.
- In a large bowl whisk together the banana, egg, vanilla, maple syrup, peanut butter, and nut milk until smooth.
- Stir in the oatmeal, oat flour, baking powder, and salt and mix until combined.
- Pour the batter into the baking pan. Spoon dollops of jam over the top of the batter and swirl it around using a toothpick or knife. Bake for 20-25 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean. Let cool, slice, and enjoy!
- I’m a big fan of adding a scoop of unflavored collagen to oatmeal bars. It adds a protein boost without changing the texture or flavor. This brand is one of my favorites.
- You can easily make your own oat flour by blending rolled oats in a food processor or blender.
