With love and good eats,
Is it ok if I don’t use stevia extract in the recipe?
You can substitute the stevia with another sweetener if you like. You can try 1 cup of coconut sugar, date sugar, maple sugar, sucanat, erythritol, xylitol, etc. You can give the batter a taste as you go along, it’s safe because it doesn’t have eggs!
Can it be done in a crock pot on low all night????
I don’t own a crock pot so I can’t be sure… but feel free to give it a try!
OMG! This look amazing! I think they are the perfect snack after a long run. Thanks for sharing!
Definitely the perfect reward for running!! 🙂
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 🙂
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.
I made these oatmeal squares tonight and they were delicious!! Thank you so much for all the Great recipes!
Yay, I’m so glad you liked the recipe!
what can i substitute the peanut flour with?
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 ½ cup Peanut Flour with 1/2 cup Oat Flour + 2 tbs Ground Flaxseed…
In total, you will need ¼ 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! 🙂
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!
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 🙂

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!
Haha! If there are leftovers, just wrap it with plastic wrap and refrigerate. To reheat, you can just pop it in the microwave 🙂
I hope you like the baked oatmeal Laurie!
Hi can I freeze this aa a make ahead breakfast?
Absolutely! Just slice the oatmeal, wrap individually, then freeze 😀
Hope you like the recipe!
I did this recipe all accordingly to the directions. I’m very disappointed, it was awful and sucked.
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…
I found your recipe looking for eggless breakfast because I ran out. I used traditional ingredients, and whatever I had on hand including 1/3c flour and 1c. milk and, almond meal instead of flax seed and added chocolate chips because why not 🙂 It came out wonderfully thank you. I did end up cooking it for 50 minutes. I topped it with fresh banana slices. Also, the batter is really wet for anyone concerned. I am eating it right now and so excited for the stick to your bones new breakfast that I will be serving as a staple. Thank you.
I was wondering what I could substitute for the soy milk. I have coconut milk and regular milk on hand.
You can use any other milk to replace the soy milk 🙂

Peanut flour is the BEST for baking and for smoothies! I need to buy more so I can make this oatmeal! Looks like the perfect oatmeal cake that would taste great with some jam on top for a PB&J treat!
RIGHT??? It seriously makes the creamiest smoothies ever. It’s a little hard to get used to in baking since it absorbs so much liquid, but when you get it right, you get it right!! 🙂

Great Post! It is very interesting and informative content to read. Thanks for the useful post.
I love this recipe! It’s almost like a coffee cake for breakfast, but wayyyyy better for you 🙂 Thanks for sharing!
Instead of peanut butter flower could you use PB FIT powder??
Yep! They’re pretty much the same thing, the only difference is that PB Fit has added sugar and salt. I’d reduce the amount of salt in the recipe to ½ tsp 🙂
I’ve seen your comments for substituting the peanut flour, but I was wondering if alomond flour would work for replacing the peanut flour?
I’m afraid not. Almond flour doesn’t absorb nearly as much liquid as peanut flour (peanut flour acts similar to coconut flour, like a sponge)!
Thanks for the quick response! Would peanut butter powder work the same as the peanut flour? (Sorry for all the question I’m just not able to find peanut flour where I’m from)
I’m pretty sure peanut powder and peanut flour are the same thing… are you talking about PB2? Or the kind that you mix with a little bit of water for a “instant peanut butter” spread? If so, that will work! 🙂
I really want to make these but getting applesauce is a little hard where I am. Do you think mashed banana would be ok?
Mashed bananas would work just fine! It’ll taste great too! It’s a bit thicker than applesauce though so you may need to increase the almond milk by a tablespoon or so. Hope you like it 🙂

Hi! I gave this recipe a try, but changed a few things. I used 3/4 cup protein powder in place of the flour (I had peanut butter flavored, but any would work), 1 tbsp honey instead of the stevia, and I used a flaxseed/chia/coconut mix instead of just flaxseed. I then baked for 38 min! They turned out super yummy! Thanks for the idea!
Genius idea with the protein powder! Those sound super yummy! 🙂
