  1. Bring water to a boil in a saucepan, stir steel cut oats into water, and reduce heat to medium-low. Cover and cook until oats are tender, 5 to 7 minutes, stirring occasionally. Remove from heat and let stand 1 minute.
  2. Stir peanut butter, maple syrup, and brown sugar into oats.

  • Cook's Note:
  • Depending on the brand of peanut butter, the taste will obviously vary. I tried an all natural peanut butter from Trader Joe's® that I simply did not like. The 365® Whole Foods brand tastes much better in my opinion. You could also try adding some cinnamon if desired.

I liked this. Instead of steel cut oats, to save time, I used an equal amount of quick oats. I cooked them in the microwave with 1/2 cup of water for 2 minutes. They were perfectly cooked. For the peanut butter I used Jiff Creamy Natural peanut butter. I didn't have Whole Foods brand available. I also assumed quick oats are not as hardy as steel cut, so I halved the peanut butter and maple syrup. I went to do the same with the brown sugar, but it just seemed like it needed more. I added 2 more pinches of brown sugar which may have came to at most 1 tsp. With the extra brown sugar and a quick sprinkle of salt the flavors seemed more balanced. I forgot how quick it is to make a bowl of hot cereal in the microwave. I may make this again as a change to all of the fruit flavored oatmeal recipes. Calories, as made in my notes, came to 1 serving at 118.6 calories. ty, this was very filling this morning with a hot cup of coffee.

I love oatmeal and I am always looking for a different way to prepare it. I really liked the peanut butter flavor in the oatmeal, but, I was not a big fan of the maple syrup. I would try it again, but, probably add a little milk to make it creamier and experiment with different sweeteners like honey or agave.

This was a nice comforting breakfast. Kids liked it. Will make again. :)

Good recipe, just add milk to make it a bit creamier and it is perfect!

I rarely use peanut butter, so this was a completely new taste for me. Very filling, but kind of dry. I just poured hot water over oats (very soft and tender kind I use) and added peanut butter and sweetener. I'll try to add some refreshing fruit next time.

My kids love this and it's very easy to make.

I have oatmeal almost every day for breakfast. I'm looking for new ways to change up my oatmeal, new things to add to it. I was intrigued by the peanut butter, so I gave this a try. I made this exactly as stated with the only differences being I used rolled oats (not quick cooking) and Jif peanut butter because these are what I had on hand. It was suprisingly good, but I'll have to make adjustments for my personal taste to make it great. The dish wasn't as sweet as I thought it was going to be, which isn't necessarily a bad thing, just not what I was expecting. The peanut butter muted the maple flavor and sweetness. The peanut butter also gave the oatmeal a wonderful creamy consistency, which I loved! However, it was slightly on the bland side, not terribly bland, but bland enough that I will have to tweak the recipe. Possibly add raisins, cinnamon, maybe add more maple syrup or walnuts. It's a good starting point, though, and gives me ideas for different ways to serve oatmeal. I'm very grateful for that, thanks!
