This peanut butter and jelly baked oatmeal recipe is like a time machine back to childhood. Made with simple, wholesome ingredients, this is the perfect oatmeal recipe to fuel your day. It’s gluten free, vegan, and incredibly easy to make!



  • 2 1/2 cups rolled oats
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 2 cups non dairy milk
  • 1/3 cup apple sauce
  • 3 tbsp peanut butter, plus more for topping
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 flax egg (1 tbsp ground flax seeds + 2.5 tbsp water)*
  • 4 tbsp maple syrup or sweetener of choice
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1 batch chia jam


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
  2. If you’re making this vegan, combine ground flax seeds and water in a bowl and set aside to thicken (about 5 minutes).
  3. In a large mixing bowl, whisk together the oats, salt, cinnamon and baking powder.
  4. Add in all remaining ingredients including the flax egg once thickened.
  5. Transfer to a 9×9 baking dish. Top with chia jam and extra peanut butter now, wait until it’s done baking, or both! 
  6. Bake for 25-30 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean. If topping with extra pb & j, allow the oats to cool slightly so it doesn’t all melt. 


Once prepared, this oatmeal will keep in the fridge for about 5 days. 

You can sub the peanut butter for any nut or seed butter of your choice. 

Any type of non-dairy milk will work for this recipe. I used almond, but coconut, oat milk, soy milk will also work. 

The flax egg can be subbed for a regular egg.
