I've been wanting to for awhile. Not because I'm such a great cook and want to impart my wisdom with a few loyal readers (because I'm not really great, "adequate" is probably a term I would use), but because sometimes I need a good place to store my recipes!
I often turn to the internet when I want a recipe for something. Then I try the recipe. Close my computer. Eat the food. Sometimes find that it was a GREAT recipe. Although, I nearly always make tweaks and a few changes. Several months go by and I want to try that recipe again, but I spend 15 minutes looking on my computer for what site I used. And then I have to try and remember what tweaks I made. (Yes, I know what Pinterest is and I use it, but I don't always "Pin" everything.)
And I'm sharing this Peanut Butter Baked Oatmeal recipe not because it's the best thing I can make......but simply because I felt like posting it and actually followed through.
So, onto the Peanut Butter Baked Oatmeal.
My family loves this. I do a Pumpkin Baked Oatmeal that I am crazy about and will maybe share the recipe sometime. But the boys requested Peanut Butter today.
This isn't like a bowl of goopy, mushy oatmeal. This bakes up, almost cake-like. I like to eat mine with a little milk poured over top. This is great for breaking up and letting our 1-year old eat as well. Regular oatmeal is messy for him or I have to sit and feed it to him.

Sometimes I've mixed this up the night before and then just put it in the oven the next morning. It really mixes up easily, but I just don't like to have to do "clean up" first thing in the morning.
