Just what I need for a long week of classes, studying and exams.  I have baked a batch of this oatmeal for three weeks in a row now.  It is such a quick and easy breakfast to have on hand and it is totally addictive.  One bite and I forget all the stressors in my life.  It’s just me and the peanut butter.

  1. Is it ok if I don’t use stevia extract in the recipe?

  2. Can it be done in a crock pot on low all night????

  3. OMG! This look amazing! I think they are the perfect snack after a long run. Thanks for sharing!

  4. Thanks for responding. Would it be okay if I used maple syrup instead of maple sugar. As a substitute for Stevia?

      Hmmm, the maple syrup might make the oatmeal a bit too “liquidy,” but if you want to use it, you can counteract that by adding 1/4-1/2 cup more peanut flour! Hope you like the recipe 🙂

  5. Wow, this looks absolutely delicious! I could go for a slice right now. I love how you drowned this is maple syrup. <3 no other way.

  6. I made these oatmeal squares tonight and they were delicious!! Thank you so much for all the Great recipes!

  7. what can i substitute the peanut flour with?

    • Nour-
      Peanut flour is a tough ingredient to replace because it’s so unique. However, unlike the Peanut Butter Oatmeal Cookies you commented on, this baked oatmeal might be able to handle the substitution.
      I would recommend replacing the 1/2 cup Peanut Flour with 1/2 cup Oat Flour + 2 tbs Ground Flaxseed
      In total, you will need 1/4 cup of flax. I haven’t tried this substitution but I’m pretty sure it will work out just fine! I hope you like the recipe! 🙂

  8. My son is allergic to peanuts and almonds. What could I use to substitute the peanut flour and the peanut butter? Is the cinnamon necessary as well? It’s another allergy of his. Thanks!

    • Megan-
      I’m afraid the peanut flour cannot be easily substituted in this recipe. While I haven’t tried it, you can try using 3/4 cup of oat flour instead 🙂
      Instead of the peanut butter, you can use any other nut or seed butter, such as walnut butter or sunflower seed butter.
      The cinnamon is just there for flavor. If you aren’t using it, I would recommend adding some chocolate chips instead!
      I hope your son likes the recipe 🙂

  10. How should I store the leftovers (assuming there are any) – fridge or freezer? Any tips for reheating? I plan on this being breakfast for the week!

  11. Hi can I freeze this aa a make ahead breakfast?

  12. I did this recipe all accordingly to the directions. I’m very disappointed, it was awful and sucked.

    • Hey Sophia,
      Not sure what went wrong in your batch because every time I made this it turned out great! Did you make any ingredient substitutions? It’d be helpful if you told me what your final product turned out like so I can actually help you — was it not sweet enough for your taste, did you not like the texture, etc…
