Peanut Butter Breakfast Pudding

Pin It!

One of my all time favorite breakfast recipes. It is so creamy and delicious! Recipe here:

I’m going to be on television!!

The Dallas ABC affiliate news team is filming a story on me, for the 5 o’clock news! It’s pretty much the coolest thing to happen to me since… ever?!

For the feature, I’m thinking of either making the Deep Dish Cookie Pie or the Black Bean Brownies.

Right now I’m more excited than nervous, but that’s maybe just because it hasn’t really sunk in yet how many people are going to see this! Today’s agenda: figuring out what to wear, setting up dishes, and going on a cleaning spree. To power me through, I made a stand-by favorite breakfast:

oatmeal pudding

This isn’t your average bowl of peanut butter oats. The cooking method makes this breakfast taste like you are eating a giant bowl of gooey peanut butter pudding. It’s life-changing… at least as far as breakfast is concerned!

  • 1/2 cup rolled oats
  • 1 cup milk of choice
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/2 a ripe banana
  • 1-2 tbsp peanut butter OR allergy-friendly alternative
  • 1/4 tsp pure vanilla extract
  • sweetener of choice, to taste
  • optional: chocolate chips
Yield: Serves 1


Cook the oats, salt, and milk (either on the stove or in the microwave). Meanwhile, blend the pb and banana. Then add your vanilla, sweetener, and 1/2 of the cooked oats to the blender (I used a Magic Bullet) and re-blend. Stir in the rest of the oats. You can blend all the oats if you prefer, but I like the chewiness of leaving some un-blended.

Are you comfortable speaking in front of a group?
Or do you dread giving public presentations? Have you ever acted in a play or been on tv? I always loved giving class presentations and speeches in school, so I probably would’ve enjoyed acting. Unfortunately, I was too busy with soccer and tennis to join the drama club. As for the upcoming tv story, I am nervous about one thing (which might sound silly and superficial): what to wear. I’m clueless about fashion. Any tips?? Please send them my way!

Side note: I updated the Chocolate-Covered Katie Press Page.

  6. Melissa says:

    How exciting!! I was on TV for work once and our PR ppl said to wear solid colors, no black or white, and pastels are generally better. I remember because it was cold out, and I had very few warm pastels to choose from!! My mom’s advice has always just been to smile!

    I’m sure you’ll be great! You should post a link on here afterwards!

  7. Hi Katie

    I think this is awesome! I am so excited for you. I have been following your for awhile, ever since I had to go gluten free, and have found such wonderful recipes from your site. Please be sure to post the interview on you tube…can’t wait to see it!

  10. Katy says:

  11. Caitlin says:

    Congratulations! This is such a great oppertunity! I hope it’s going to be posted online as well, since I live overseas..Woohoo!

  12. Barb says:

    good luck! wear a solid color and fun accessories! I made myself a cookie pie for my birthday today 🙂

    the pb banana oatmeal also looks delicious! what an awesome idea…i’ll add chocolate chips to mine 🙂

  13. Holy COW, that is ridiculously awesome! How fun for you. Can’t wait to hear how it goes. GOOD LUCK!!!

  14. Amie says:

    You should wear bright colors. Black, white, and neutrals will wash you out under the camera lights. My two cents? Where something that envokes the mood of your blog, which to me is young, fresh, and fun.

    1. Amie says:

      Oops, that’s “evokes.”

    2. I’m thinking of a cupcake apron! 🙂

  15. Emily H. says:

    Good luck on the TV debut! I agree with the comment above about sticking to solid colors. You want your marvelous food and your shining enthusiasm to stand out, and that can be somewhat harder to accomplish with distracting print or highlighter-inspired colors. You could also call your contact at the station and ask for their recommendations – they’re sure to have some!
    Congrats again!

  16. Nikita says:

    Congrats! You had me at peanut butter here 🙂

  17. denise says:

    katie, just recently ‘discovered’ you because of a pin on pinterest. you are my kind of cook and i will be back OFTEN!!

    1. Aww thanks! I’m so glad you found me :).

  18. libby says:

    Thats super exciting. This recipe looks great but I really think you should highlight your oatmeal doubling trick. Its really easy and helps you feel like you are eating more and even sneaks in more water!!

  19. Katie congrats!! Better put a video of it on this blog! That pudding looks amazing, LOVE the banana in it!

  20. I literally have a similar version to this breakfast everyday! It’s so good I never get sick of it.
