If you mention peanut butter and jelly anything, I'm pretty much sold. If you look at my Pinterest, I have tons of peanut butter and jelly pins for bars, oatmeal, muffins, stuffed French toast, etc. I love it! Especially when the "jelly" is a freshly cooked fruit filling that tastes amazing.
I decided to get creative with this baked oatmeal and make the oatmeal base peanut butter flavored while stuffing the whole thing with a homemade strawberry jelly. It turned out exactly how I dreamed it up in my head! We love going to my parent's farm often for a weekend at a time and I often volunteer to bring the breakfast. It is kind of my specialty!
I brought this peanut butter and jelly baked oatmeal for my family one weekend and they enjoyed it! You can eat it as is or top it with peanut butter, syrup or more jelly or fruit puree. It is actually very simple to make and can be made ahead of time for breakfasts all week. It stores well in the fridge and you just need to heat it up and eat. Easy peasy!
For this recipe, I used frozen strawberries which worked wonderfully. They were perfectly ripe so I did not have to add any sugar to the "jelly" layer. I just microwaved them until soft and then blended them in my food processor. You could also just mash with a fork. I think that this would be awesome with any kind of berry including blueberries, blackberries or raspberries.

This recipe uses my favorite peanut butter powder: Purely Inspired Powdered Peanut Butter. I have been a fan of powdered peanut butter for years and this one is delicious. It has 90% less fat per serving than peanut butter. I do not typically use it in place of PB but like to add it to different sweet and savory dishes to use in a different way. It can give great flavor to foods. It is only made with roasted peanuts, sugar and salt and has 6 grams of protein per serving. I also like it mixed into yogurt for a peanut butter Greek yogurt, I eat it daily in my oatmeal and it is tasty in smoothies.
