Made this for breakfast this morning and darn near made it for lunch because it was sooo good! I love that the peanut butter (I used natural peanut butter) added protein to an oatmeal recipe. I did only use 1 tablespoon of PB and I thought it had plenty of peanut butter taste. I'll be making this one again - I think I could even eat it every day in the winter months, its a great change from my usual english muffin w/ PB breakfast. Made for ZWT4.

Easy and wonderful-tasting oatmeal. I increased the amounts to 1/2 C. oatmeal to 1 C. milk, and actually lessened the peanut butter to 1 T. I really think adding the peanut butter after the oatmeal is cooked is great. Thanks!

What a great combo! Nothing sounded good tonight except peanut butter, and I was looking for something quick and substantial for dinner (other than pb toast or sandwich) and this was just the ticket! I used quick oats (cooked with skim milk and a dash of salt for 1 minute) and added a couple dashes of cinnamon, about a teaspoon of brown sugar, approx. 1 tablespoon of natural crunchy peanut butter and cooked for about another 40 seconds = perfection! A delicious dinner that tasted like a peanut butter oatmeal cookie! :)

I gave this 4 stars. Review update: I made this today at the request of my husband. He loved it and had me change the star rating I had previously gave it. When I made this today on the first bowl I messed up and added the peanut butter right to the bowl and it did not affect the turn out. My husband had me leave out the cinnamon and I have to say that was very good. On the second bowl I doubled the recipe and the oatmeal turned out alot creamier until I added the peanut butter then it thickened. I thinned it out with some milk. First Review: I made this for my breakfast. I thought this was a bit more peanut butter then I like. I did like the cinnamon. This is for peanut butter LOVERS. A tip make sure you use a good size bowl to make this something bigger then a standard cereal bowl. 2x's now when I've made oatmeal in the microwave my oatmeal bubbled over and made a mess in my microwave. I used skim milk and all natural peanut butter. I did stir in a good amount of milk to make this creamy. Overall I don't think I'll make this again. Thanks for posting! Christine (internetnut)

I was out of fruit so needed something different for my son in his oatmeal. I followed the recipe as written except mine only needed to cook for one minute. My son thought it was just OK. I made another bowl without the cinnamon and he liked it better. I thought it was missing something so added 1/4 tsp of Splenda and he liked it even more. This was a nice change from our regular oatmeal.

We really enjoyed this oatmeal for breakfast for breakfast this morning. A 1/4 cup of uncooked oatmeal can look a little measly and I was worried that it wouldn't be filling, but it was completely satisfying. I added a little more milk after cooking and topped it all off with a few slices of banana. I loved that it wasn't overly sweet. We'll be making this often. Thanks for posting.

My toddler and I liked this oatmeal, I'm trying to get away from putting sugar in oatmeal and this worked, also liked the addition of cinnamon. Thank you!

I've been making this oatmeal for years. It is a very flexible dish, one of those things there are tons of varieties. I don't use milk or cinnamon but you can add whatever you want. I add cruncy peanut butter for texture. I've added a dash of vanilla, sprinkle walnuts or pecans on it, add in some chopped banana or blueberries, my boyfriend adds a dash of the vanilla coffee creamers for flavor....you get the drift. I love it in the winter, I stay full forever and it's very fast and easy to make.

What an incredible, delicious recipe!!! I used 1/2 cup rolled oats, 2/3 cup skim milk (may use 3/4 next time but I like a chunky oatmeal). Microwaved for 2 min, then added 1 Splenda pkt, 2 tbsp natural PB (which was enough & I love PB) & a small amt of cinnamon. I topped it with sliced bananas & sugar free maple syrup. This was my DINNER & it kept me full for a good few hours. Totally yum; thank you for sharing!
