I often get experimental with peanut butter. Sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn’t. This one did. Don’t get grossed out just yet, all the ingredients aren’t simply mixed together. I developed this while on the hunt for a savory oatmeal after realizing that I’ve only ever made sweet oats. A few bloggers have used eggs in or on their oatmeal before but I went a step further. The different textures of the creamy nutty oats and the crispy egg and cheese pancake make for a wonderful combination. If you still doubt me, read the comments from the daring Peanut Butter & Banana Omelet recipe and you’ll see those readers were pleasantly surprised!


1/3 cup oats (quick or regular)
3/4 cup skim, soymilk or water
1/2 banana, in 1/8″ slices (optional, for a touch of sweetness)
2T peanut butter

Egg and Cheese Pancake
1 egg (1/4 cup egg substitute)
2T nonfat cheddar cheese
kosher salt and pepper, to taste


1. Mix the oats, milk, banana (if using) and peanut butter in a medium bowl and microwave for 2-3 minutes, until thickened to desired consistency.

2. Preheat a small skillet over medium-high heat. Once hot, spray with cooking spray and pour in egg. Add a pinch of salt and pepper, sprinkle cheese on top and cook for about 1-2 minutes or until set. Flip and cook for 30-60 more seconds. Place egg on top of oatmeal.

    That… sounds… amazing.

    I am SO trying this! Will report back as soon as it has been made (gotta re-stock bananas first though. Mmm bananas).

    Let me know! ~ Nick

  2. Sharon says:

    Wow, that is one awesome creation!

  3. I think this sounds perfect. I love a good salty/sweet combo. Oh, and thanks for making your recipes easy to print. So handy!

  4. that’s one heck of a mighty breakfast! i love everything savoury and i think PB gives that extra savoury twist to sweet dishes, and sweet touch to savoury dishes. i simply love it.

    re: photography tricks: from me, a beginner beginner beginner = two words = natural sunlight :)

    Ah, yes. I do need to work on the lighting, thanks! ~ Nick

  5. Shelby says:

    I love savory oats! I usually add Nutritional Yeast to make it cheesy but I’ve never added PB, next time I will!

  6. I like your spirit of adventure in the kitchen! I love dishes with a mix touch savory/sweet and different textures…so interesting to try!

    Nick I suggest you might add a button “tweet this” to Twitter too :)

    All the best!

    Great idea! The feature has been added, see what you think. ~ Nick

    Nick, very nice – Great Pic.

  8. Hayley says:

    Sounds delicious to me. Sometimes I make my oats nice and chewy and mix in some veggies. It’s all good.

  9. Meg says:

    Banana and PB in oats is the best combination ever. I like to add a little cinnamon to mine!

  10. Reeni says:

    I love sweet and savory flavors together! I think this is another delicious idea!

  11. Richard says:

    Oatmeal is the breakfast of CHAMPS. I’ve tried it with egg (stirred in though while cooking over stove top) and I regularly have it with pb. I guess its time to take it to the next level. Thanks Nick!

    Ha, you’re climbing the tower of peanut butter obsession! ~ Nick

  12. grace says:

    okay, i’ll confess that i was quite disgusted at first, but after reading your method, i’m convinced that this would be not only edible, but absolutely delicious. :)

    Why thank you Grace, I’m glad to have swayed you! ~ Nick

  13. Wow…this is too much for a day…first it’s PB in oats…then cheese and egg pancake with oats….I love oats and I definitely have to give this a try.

  14. Laci says:

    Strange as it sounds, I’ve made tofu omlets (well, scrambles at least!) And I may have the courage to try this recipe, with some replacements!
    P.S. What is your all time favorite PB combination or way of eating PB? Mine is probably the classic “elvis”… a pb/banana sammie, maybe drizzled with some 100% maple surup? mmm… =)

    Give it a try, see if it suits your fancy. Favorite way of eating PB? I’d have to say the Peanut Butter Hot Dog, there’s just something about it… ~ Nick

    What a wonderfully nice website! :) I tried to leave a comment on the “Post a comment Feed the hungry” but somehow it didn’t work though… Donations closed? ;-P

    Well thank ya, and yes the comments on that post are closed because I was getting too much spam but also because the deadline is up and I already donated. I’ll run another “comment drive” someday =) ~ Nick

  16. ttfn300 says:

    hmm, i’m never too surprised at how many things pb goes into well :)

  17. Marianne says:

    It’s funny that we often think of PB as being a sweet food. When I was living in Australia, and would eat PB & J, they thought that was crazy, because they look at PB as more of a savory food. If I liked eggs, I might try the recipe out.

  18. Nick work perfectly, all twitters will love it! Just Twittered :)

  19. Janet Rose says:

    This recipe is sooo different and interesting to me.I love oats … have only had sweet oats. It’s time for a change and peanut butter IS good all the time.so, tomorrow my husband and I will give it a try. Thanks for opening up my mind to a new taste idea. Janet

    That’s what I love about peanut butter, it’s versatility! I’m glad to have expanded your mind, let me know what you develop with this new-found creativity! ~ Nick

  20. Heather says:

    wow! i would never have come up with this in a million years! i’m definitely intrigued!!

  21. Jennifer says:

    I have peanut butter and banana in some form(usually with oats) everyday, not kidding! But with the egg on top? interesting!!

  22. dawn says:

    Now this is a very healthy way to start the day, and will probably hold you over till dinner! I would so eat this up!

  23. Maria says:

    Great creation!!

  24. varsha says:

    A blog entirely for peanut butter..Thats cool…:D
    Loved the idea of peanut butter with Oats..n the pic s sooo tempting boy..!!

  25. Totally makes sense. One of my favourite things is grits with white cheddar and an egg on top. This kinda like the same thing except with oatmeal instead of corn.

  26. Your recipes are consistently daring and inventive, and I appreciate your risk-taking!

  27. Nick!

    I’ve been away from checking blogs for a bit but I finally got the time and was so pleased / hungry to read all of your amazing posts. …It also made me realize I need to replace the jar of peanut butter I finished off yesterday…

    Funnily enough, I just posted on oatmeal myself. As I was munching away I was thinking about the best way to make a savory oatmeal (I’ve done it with GF hot cereal – a combination of rice & sorgum – and found it pairs nicely with eggs and spinach) but am definetly curious about trying yours out!

    Glad to see you back! This creation is a bit “out there” but I still recommend it. I’m so glad oats are (or can be) gluten-free, they’re an important staple in my house and that these recipes are easily shared with gluten-free bloggers! Give this a try! ~ Nick

  28. diva says:

    wow this is completely new to me. peanut butter with porridge sounds amazing and a terribly decadent way to wake up to breakfast :) mum will go mental if she knew that’s how i made my porridge haha. thanks for sharing this…i’m inspired now.

  29. Jude says:

    Sounds interesting even if it sounds strange at first. I wouldn’t mind trying this out.

  30. morri says:

    I’m on such a “savoury porridge” kick now, so I made this one too! I never cooked my porridge with PB before, I just made regular oats and added a dollop of yoghurt and a teaspoon of PB afterwards. I have to say that PB porridge with an egg on top worked amazingly well (I might skip the banana next time though). I promise I’ll try my best to buy hominy and make your favourite porridge too, but my local shop doesn’t carry it, so I’ll have to look.
