Toddler Peanut Butter Oatmeal

Total Time
Prep 1 min
Cook 2 mins

My 20-month old absolutely loves this one and I thought yours might, too.

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 14 cup old fashioned oats
  • 12 cup water
  • 2 teaspoons natural-style peanut butter (I use organic. Smuckers makes an organic, natural PB.)
  • 1 teaspoon brown sugar (I use Florida Crystals Organic brown sugar)
  • milk, as needed (I use about 2 or 3 tablespoons)
  • 1 dash salt


  1. Put the oats and water into a large microwave-safe bowl and microwave on high for 1 minute.
  2. Stir and microwave another 30 seconds, watching to be careful it doesn't overflow.
  3. Stir in the peanut butter, brown sugar, salt and milk.
  4. Smile as your toddler eats a healthy breakfast. :D.

To AmandaMcMom: Previously, parents were told to delay giving highly allergenic foods, such as eggs, peanuts, tree nuts, fish, and shellfish, for months or years longer than other foods. However, studies do not show enough evidence in support of waiting to introduce these foods [3,4]. Experts now recommend that high-risk infants be introduced to traditional supplemental foods between four and six months of age.

This was good, both of my toddlers finished it, although I had to split the serving between them because it was huge!!! Thanks!
