Buckeye Baked Oatmeal

When you combine baked oatmeal with the flavors or peanut butter and chocolate, you create a delicious start to your day.

It’s been a long time since I’ve made a baked oatmeal, so why not make it buckeye-style for #PBchocSat!? I even put a dollop of peanut butter on top to resemble the eye of the buckeye. It may be the weekend but sometimes I don’t have much more time that a weekday to prepare breakfast, so this is a nice in between. Easy to prepare and ready in 20 minutes.

Today I won’t be watching much football because I am visiting my mom for some early birthday celebrations – she will be 72 years young! My brother and his family are visiting as well so it should be a good time. I can’t remember the last time we were all in her neck of the woods at the same time together. We are spoiled because she usually visits us.

I’m not entirely sure what we will get into, we won’t have a lot of time there unfortunately but it’s better than nothing. We will probably just hang out and have a little feast. A little pre-Thanksgiving preparation haha. I am just excited to see her not in the hospital this time around!

It’s actually not quite as sinful as it looks, tried to keep it breakfast friendly still haha

Did you invent this recipe? I think I will try it. What size is a x oz ramekin. Looked like Anna had fun with Luke and Griffin.

I did! And Ooops it’s supposed to be a 16 oz. ramekin.

This sounds like something I would actually make, though I would sub almond butter for the peanut butter. Hope you enjoy your visit with your mom. BTW, today is the second time in a row that the print friendly button doesn’t work. It says it’s generating my doc and the says it timed out (even though it’s just a second or so before that appears).

Hmm that’s weird. I am not having problems on my end so I am not sure what to do. The plugin is up to date so its not that either.
