  • 3 cups (240 g) old fashioned oats
  • 2 scoops (60 g) vanilla protein powder
  • 1 tsp (4 g) baking powder
  • 3 tbsp (48 g) peanut butter
  • 2 tbsp (42 g) maple syrup
  • 10 tbsp (150 g) liquid egg whites or 2 eggs
  • 2 cups (480 g) milk

For the Strawberry Jelly

  • 1 lb (454 g) frozen strawberries
  • tsp (6 g) splenda or 5-6x sugar/maple syrup
  • 2 tsp (8 g) pectin optional but recommended

For the Peanut Butter Drizzle

  • 2 tbsp (32 g) peanut butter


For the Strawberry Jelly

  • I usually make a double or triple batch of this and keep it in the fridge for use in other things as well. If you want to give it time to set up a bit you should make it the night before but that isn't required if you are just using it for this baked oatmeal. If you have this prepped in your fridge you can prep this baked oatmeal in 5 minutes.
  • In a large pot over medium heat, add in your frozen strawberries and allow them to cook down. As they begin to thaw, break them up with a spatula to help them cook faster.
  • Sprinkle the splenda over the top and bring to a light boil. You can use real sugar or maple syrup if you wish, you will just need to use more of it. Allow it to lightly boil, stirring often so it doesn't stick to the bottom.
  • After a few minutes, add in the pectin and continue mixing. The pectin is what helps to make it into a jelly. You don't need to add the pectin for use in the baked oatmeal but if you want to use it for a jelly with other things, you should add it.
  • After it has been lightly boiling for 10-15 minutes you can pull it off the heat and transfer to a storage container. Place it in the fridge to cool as you prep the other ingredients.

For the Baked Oatmeal

  • Preheat your oven to 350°F.
  • In a large bowl, mix together the oats, protein powder, and baking powder.
  • Add in the egg whites, milk, syrup, and 3 tbsp of peanut butter. Stir to combine.
  • Spray a 13"x9" pan with oil and add the oat mixture.
  • Spoon the jelly over the top and swirl it into the oat mixture using a butter knife.
  • Bake for 35-40 minutes.

For the Peanut Butter Drizzle

  • Melt 2 tbsp of peanut butter in the microwave for few seconds until melted.
  • Add to a small ziplock bag and cut a small hole in the corner. Pipe the peanut butter over the top of the finished baked oatmeal.


  • This recipe makes 6 servings. Cut the oatmeal into 6 equal pieces.

    I didn’t make the jelly and just put some frozen raspberries in the mixture and it turned out wonderful. Great if you zap it in the microwave the next day to enjoy warm. 🙂

    Looks like a great recipe I haven’t tried it yet but just my opinion it would be nice to make it more simple, like if you had extra oatmeal peanut butter and jelly you need to use up! Maybe I’ll make the oatmeal part of it without making the jelly and just add some refrigerated jelly on top of it? Also is it OK to cook with whey protein?

    1. Josh Cortis

      Yes, whey works fine in this recipe. You could also just cut up some berries and throw them in if you don’t want to make the jelly

    I’ve made your carrot cake, blueberry and lemon, and apple oatmeal breakfast previous to this one. But, this is the best of them all. I added 1/4 cup of brown sugar to the strawberries and didnt use the pectin and it tastes phenomenal!! The jam on top is amazing and just the right amount of sugar with the brown sugar added.

    Dude this is amazing, another breakfast staple for my family.

  5. Adriana D.

    How much finished jelly does that make? I know it’s overloaded in sugar, but I’d rather just use store-bought to save on the time, effort, and dishwashing.

  6. Pam

    Making this soon. I only have fair life protein milk. Can you use an milk?

    Love that you did the math portion of the nutrition facts already. That saves me a ton of time. I’ve been considering paying for the Gold plan, but my only concern is the variation of brands and how that can change the macros. I don’t see any specific brands listed anywhere. Is that something I’m overlooking or are those left out intentionally for some reason?

    1. Josh Cortis

      I leave them out so that people don’t think they need to buy a specific brand. any kind should theoretically work

  8. Silas

    It says Liquid egg whites or Eggs does that mean the whole egg or still just the Egg whites

    1. Josh Cortis

      the whole egg. you could take the yolks out as well though

    Does this need to be refrigerated?

    Just made this one. Halfed the recipe because my pan was too small and used sugar free jam from the store. So freaking good! I love being able to eat a small piece as a late night snack.

  11. Alexis

    What kind of vanilla protein did you use? I’m trying to make it how you did to have the same macros, less math lol…

      1. Eric

        Any idea how the double rich chocolate would taste? I dont have the vanilla.

    I don’t know why people are trying to duck making the jelly. It was surprisingly simple and tasted amazing. I have jelly every day on my toast, and I think I’ll just make this in big batches to keep on hand. Oh yeah, the bake all together was tasty too. 😊👌

    What kind of Splenda do you use? I bought the kind you can match 1:1 but noticed some of your recipes call for double sugar as a sub. Do you use the Splenda Sugar Mix?

  14. Sarah

    Can I replace the eggs with bananas ?

    1. Whitney

      You can make “flax eggs”. Enjoy

  15. chantel

    is there a way to replace the protien powder?

    1. Julien Apprioual

      I would also like to know

  16. Kate

    Looks amazing, is it crucial to use whey or would casein work?

    1. Zackery Ludtke

      I’ve used casein in other baked oatmeals and have had no issues. I’m planning on making this one this weekend and I’ll let you know if I have issues.

  17. Art Vandelay

    Peanut allergy – can I substitute PB for Sunbutter?

  18. Ian Troiano

    Anyone know if powdered peanut butter would work? I figure it’d be a little on the thinner side but can’t see that making a difference

  19. Alex

    This one was so bomb 💣 🤤 I will be making more of the jelly because it was he best one I’ve tried since it’s not too sweet but how long am I able to keep the jelly in the fridge?

  20. Trudy

    Made the recipe and the whole family loved it. I have picky eaters and there was no complaints.

  21. Paulo

    Can I use Casein vanilla powder or is it just whey?

    I really enjoy this one. It’s right up there with the double chocolate for my favorite.
    If you have the calories to spare as well as the ingredient, I highly recommend adding 2 tablespoons of powdered peanut butter. It only adds 10 calories per serving (with half the calories being from protein) and it really ups the peanut butter flavor. Adding a quarter cup of brown sugar to the dry ingredients also helps a lot, but adds 9 grams of sugar and 36 calories per serving.

    Love this one. I had frozen raspberries and some leftover seedless raspberry jam. Microwaved the raspberries until thawed and mixed in with the jam I had. Made a perfect topping for this and got some stuff out of the fridge. Would love to add full raspberries into the mixture next time!

    I blended the mixture because my partner doesn’t like the oat texture and it was really nice and kind of cake like. I’ve done that to all of these baked oatmeal recipes and they always turn out great!

  24. Nathan

    I love this recipe. Is there any way to make the oatmeal crispier, more like a flapjack consistency?
