PB&J Baked STEEL CUT Oat Cups

Peanut butter and jelly filled steel cut oat cups are perfect for peanut butter and jelly lovers or even those that dislike typical oatmeal!



Do you sometimes like to prove someone wrong? I mean it isn’t the nicest trait but every once in awhile I kinda do like to. This recipe is proving to the hubby that you folks would like  my new creation!

The hubby thought these wouldn’t win anyone over and sounded VERY unappetizing. :)

BUT enough of you said YUM to my idea and so I thought I’d give proper credit to this yummy baby and make this stand alone on its own page LOL!


Of course you can  use any nut butter you like and skip the jelly and use some real fruit. But I went with the standard PB&J to have something different then the fruit filled cups.

I used:

  • Polaner All Fruit Seedless Raspberry Jelly
  • Trader Joe’s Valencia Peanut Butter made with sea salt

  1. Oh my goodness I am all over this one! This looks amazing! (sorry hubby!!)

  2. When I need to make a new batch I am definitely making this one first! Do you think they will hold up as well in the freezer as the other varieties?Thanks!

    • Oh yes I believe they will do just fine in the freezer. Although I haven’t frozen any yet so I’m not sure how long to reheat in the microwave. Always do less time though so they don’t dry out.

  3. I love that there is a higher amount of protein…I’m always looking for breakfast ideas for my kiddos and I want the energy to last. Thanks!

  4. Would love to send these in lunches but our schoo is “banana free”. what could I use instead?

  5. Jessica Hearn says:

    Can you use this with the regular rolled oats recipe. I have quaker oats quick 1 min rolled oats.

    • I can’t say how the outcome would be since the amounts of liquid I used are specifically for steel cut. I would use my original recipe if you want to use rolled oats.

      • Jessica Hearn says:

        Do you think that the original recipe would turn out ok with the pb&j baked into it?

        • You’re right Jessica it won’t work with the original batter, too loose. Well try the quick oats with this recipe, it may be just fine. I am out of bananas or I would try it myself! let me know how it turns out.

  6. My daughter and I made these this morning and OH MY GOODNESS are they good. I used quick cook steel cut oats and almond butter, strawberry fruit spread, and honey from our hives. Most of the ingredients came from Trader Joe’s. I love that place! Thanks for the recipe. Going on the weekly rotation.

    I made the PB&J ones and they are amazingly fantastic! I did make raisin ones as well and those were good, but PB&J won!
