Peanut Butter Banana Oatmeal Bake

Peanut Butter Banana Oatmeal ... Peanut Butter Banana Oatmeal ...
Six months ago I purchased my first cast-iron skillet. Of all my kitchen tools, there are only three that I consider must-haves: a KitchenAid standing mixer, an Instant Pot pressure cooker, and a cast iron skillet. Since I only have to cook for myself, I picked up mini cast iron skillets the other day to make single serving desserts and egg bakes. Today, I broke in the mini skillet with a peanut butter and banana oatmeal bake. The texture was light and fluffy which made it seem like I was eating an oatmeal cake for breakfast. The bonus is that it's healthy. Highly recommended!

Recipe for a 5-inch mini skillet:

  • 40g (one serving) rolled oats

  • 1 egg

  • 1 over-ripe banana (about 90g to 100g)

  • 1.5 to 2 TB of peanut butter

  • 1 to 2 TB water or milk

  • 1/4 tsp cinnamon

  • 1/4 tsp baking powder

  • 1/4 tsp vanilla

  • pinch of salt

  • butter for greasing the skillet


  1. Set the oven to 300 degrees

  2. Add the egg, vanilla, water, half the banana, and 1 or more tablespoon of peanut butter together in a bowl. Blend together with an immersion blender, hand mixer, or whisk.

  3. Combine the oatmeal, salt, cinnamon, and baking powder in a separate bowl.

  4. Once both wet and dry materials are prepared, pour the dry oatmeal mix into the wet egg and banana-peanut butter mix and stir to combine.

  5. Melt some butter in the mini skillet and swirl it around to help prevent the oatmeal from sticking during baking.

  6. Pour the oatmeal mix into the mini skillet and bake for 10 to 15 minutes.

  7. Top with remaining banana and peanut butter and serve warm.

Bananas Foster Peanut Butter Pancake

Treat yo self to a guilt-free in... Treat yo self to a guilt-free indulgence
This pancake wins my ongoing pursuit to eat indulgent food without gluttony. Despite 34g sugar, the pancake does have nutritional merit thanks to Kodiak Cakes special mix. PB2 (powdered peanut butter) shaves off a lot of calories at the expense of healthy fats. Raw honey in place of refined brown sugar eases my conscience a little bit, though.

I made the batter first with 53g (1/2 cup) Kodiak mix, a 1/2 cup of almond cashew milk, and 12g (2 tablespoons) PB2. Bananas foster comes from one banana, a pat of butter, and a tablespoon of honey. Caramelize the ingredients in another pan and stir often to prevent burning.

Elvis' Favorite Sandwich

"Elvis' Favorite Sandwich" "Elvis' Favorite Sandwich"
This weekend for breakfast I decided to mix things up a bit and tried to make something special. Elvis Presley has been on my mind since he's been a trending topic this week with the anniversary of his death coming up tomorrow, August 16.

People say one of Elvis' favorite sandwiches was a grilled peanut butter & banana sandwich.

To reduce calories I left out the bacon and sugar, but if you want to go the full flavor route you would caramelize the banana in brown sugar and fry up a slice or two of bacon.

For ~450 calories I used the following ingredients:

Overall I was not too impressed with my sandwich. Next time I might try Jif peanut butter or caramelize the bananas to add sweetness. My sandwich was a little too dry and not sweet enough. I realized that I didn't need to use a whole banana during the sandwich assembly, so for the same calories I could have caramelized half the banana and had enough to use for the sandwich. Maybe I will try again on his birthday in January!
