Peanut Butter and Jelly Oatmeal recipe by Barefeet In The KitchenDoes PB&J Oatmeal sound tasty to anyone under ten years old? I cringed when my son suggested it, but I decided to play with the idea.

My kids loved this breakfast. The peanut butter thickens the oatmeal and creates a distinct peanut butter flavor. Combined with the jelly, this oatmeal really is reminiscent of my boys’ favorite sandwich.

In the interest of honesty, I’m a peanut butter lover, but not the biggest fan of peanut butter in stove-top oatmeal. That said, I really love Peanut Butter Baked Oatmeal. So, however you make it, there’s a peanut butter oatmeal for everyone in my family.

Peanut Butter and Jelly Oatmeal

Pin Print Review
Servings: 4 servings


  • 2 cups old fashioned oats
  • 3 1/2 cups water
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/3 cup creamy peanut butter
  • 1/4 cup fruit spread jam, or jelly


  • In a medium size saucepan, bring the oats, water and salt to a boil. Reduce the heat to low and allow it to simmer for 3-4 minutes, until the oats are soft and chewy. Remove from the heat and stir in the peanut butter until it is melted and combined with the oatmeal. Place the jelly in a small bowl or cup and stir with a spoon until it is smooth and pourable. Drizzle the jelly over the oatmeal just before serving. Enjoy!


I used a natural fruit spread. If you are using a traditional jelly, you might want to reduce the amount slightly to avoid making the oatmeal too sweet.
