21 Day Fix: Baked Peanut Butter Oats and Berries

Baked Peanut Butter Oats and Berries
Serves 1
A baked peanut butter and berry treat for your inner cake lover. Although the berries start on the bottom of the jar, they bubble and rise during baking, creating a beautiful presentation! I used an 8 oz jar (the smaller jar in the photo) for this configuration of the recipe. Divide or multiply to your needs. πŸ™‚

Great Tips
  1. Pick up those nifty reusable plastic covers to store your baked goodies in the fridge overnight. Grab them in the morning and have a delicious breakfast on the go, or throw them in a backpack for an afternoon picnic. Top with frozen Greek yogurt, shredded coconut or crushed almonds for a crunch!
  2. Short on time? Don't want to fire up the oven? "Bake" in the microwave for three minutes.
Alternative
  1. Don't have a jar? Try a ramekin!
Safety tip
  1. Be sure to check your brand of canning jars to make sure they're oven/temperature safe. I am not responsible for your kitchen blunders. πŸ™‚

      Yes, a ramekin will absolutely work! They do rise a bit, so leave a bit of space at the top to account for that.

    Is there something to use in place of bananas? I just really don’t like them! Maybe just more of a different fruit? Thanks!

    • Shannon says:

      I just used 1/4 cup of low fat cottage cheese and 1/2 tsp vanilla (as well as cinnamon and some stevia) in place of the banana today. πŸ™‚ It actually tasted better to me than the first time when I followed the recipe to a T! I should note, I used a mix of blueberries and blackberries the first time and today I used peeled and diced apples. πŸ™‚

      • Nikki says:

        Do you think ricotta would be good? With apples sounds so yummy. That would give me a yellow, purple and part of a red. I only get 2 purples

  2. Laura says:

    I’m with Colin. My mom wants to try this but for medical reasons can’t do bananas. Is there a substitute that might work?

  3. Lesa says:

    This was delish! Might sprinkle a little stevia over berries to cut the tartness and add vanilla and cinnamon to the oat mixture. This was a hit with the family!

  4. Valarie says:

    Made this the past few mornings for breakfast- delicious! This morning I overslept so instead of putting it the oven I put it in the microwave for 3 minutes, came out great! Only difference was I stirred the berries in for the microwave and made it in a bowl.

  5. Michele says:

    Jean – what type of mason jars do you use? I want to make sure I buy ones oven safe and every one I look at doesn’t specify. Thanks!

  6. Chris says:

    Thanks for your wonderful recipes. I will be trying this soon. I bought jars because I am waiting for you to post an overnight oats recipe!

    • Jean says:

      You could try omitting it, Miranda. Or maybe try another nut butter in its place? Maybe a dollop of Greek yogurt?

  7. Jenny says:

    I wonder if this can be altered to become a canning project. I was thinking of canning some for my Mom who lives a little far from me and a cousin who is in the Army and stationed in New York. Since I am new to this, would you have any ideas of how to can these instead of just making them for the next day?

  8. Ashley Gratz says:

    Hi Jean!

    So does this recipe fit in the 8 oz jar or do you have to 1/2 it to make it fit?

    Also, after refrigerating, do you recommend warming it up or can I just throw it in my backpack and eat in the afternoon after class?

    Thanks so much! <3

    • Jean says:

      Hey, Ashley! This recipe fits the 8 oz jar perfectly. I eat them straight from the oven, but hubby eats them straight from the fridge. I like them warm or warm with Greek yogurt mixed in — amazing! Right from your backpack would be totally good!

    • Jean says:

      Lynn, I got mine at Target. They are Ball brand, though, so I’m sure they are in other stores that sell Ball jars, too. LOVE them!

    • Jean says:

      Buffie, I haven’t tried it with steel cut oats, but I assume it would. You’d have to use cooked/prepared steel cut oats, though. Don’t use them raw or it would be like eating gravel from a jar, ha!

  9. Colleen says:

    Jean, do you know or has anyone tried that you know of to put some protein powder in this to up the protein content to include a red?

  10. Amanda says:

    Hi Jean, I was wondering if or how I can make multiples of this at the same time. If I have to have jar in center of rimmed dish how can I cook multiples? And would I bake it longer?

    • Jean says:

      Hi, Amanda! Sure, you can. I just say put them in the center to keep them away from the edge, as they can bubble. Just leave a nice perimeter around the pan to protect your oven from over bubble. πŸ™‚

    I purchased your first ecookbook and did not receive an email for the download. Maybe I entered my address incorrectly? Is there any fix to this?

  12. Kristina Ocampo says:

    I am just starting the 21DF and this recipe looks great. How long does a jar last in the fridge? I’d like make a few and use as my afternoon snack or for on the go. Thanks!

    • Jean says:

      Hey, Kristina! We make and fridge a pretty big batch. I’d say 2 – 3 days is okay. We reheat and add a dollop of yogurt on top. πŸ™‚

  13. Steph says:

    Can you tell me what ‘2 t peanut butter’ means? I understand that ‘c’ is for cup but ‘t’…? Teaspoon or tablespoon?

    thanks!

  14. Shannon says:

    I just started the 21 Day Fix, and perhaps I’m just a bit confused about the carb counts. You used 1/4 cup of oats but counted it as 1/2 cup. Is that because it would fill up 1/2 cup after it’s cooked?

    • Jean says:

      Yepper, that’s exactly the reason, Shannon. In the eating plan, they have it noted as cooked. Oats double in size when you cook them, so 1/4 cup raw will yield you 1/2 cup cooked.

  15. Christine Reeds says:

    Jean, This is one of my favorite morning meals. I also use cherries and wow, yummy! Thanks so much for posting this one.
