Peanut Butter Breakfast Pudding

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!

Peanut Butter Breakfast Pudding

Yield: Serves 1
Print This Recipe [mrp_rating_result show_count="false" show_rich_snippets="false"]


  • 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


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.

    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!

  2. Kristin @ STUFT Mama says

    Ahhhh!! Katie I’m so excited for you to be on TV! You should definitely make the deep dish cookie! You are going to do so great! I’m sure this is just the first of many great opportunities to come! Yay yay yay! And this breakfast pudding just looks amazing! 🙂 Congrats!

  3. 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!

  4. 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 🙂

  5. 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.

  6. 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!

  7. 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!!

  8. 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!!

  9. Kate@cookingwitharthur says

    Congratulations. Totally agree with Annie about wanting to see a video and the cookie pie will be perfect – innovative but not too scary to non-vegans or healthy food first timers!

    Def go with plain, crisp coloured clothes and extra face powder (studio lights are really hot).

  10. mrsluckypants says

    Wow how exciting, I am so happy for you!!!!! I hope you will post the video on your site for those of us who don’t live in your area. The deep dish cookie pie is wonderful, great choice! I eat a similar oatmeal to the peanut butter pudding you posted very often. I was inspired to make it based on your melted banana trick. I make steel cut oatmeal, since I’m not a huge fan of creamy like you are, then I use your melted banana trick and add it as well as a dollop of almond butter in the oatmeal once it has finished cooking. I just stir it together. Too lazy to get out the blender, but it is great. I like the idea of the vanilla extract I will have to add that in as well. I recently added 1/2 tspn of cinnamon which was a nice addition as well. I don’t use any sweetener, the melted banana is sweet enough. Thanks so much for your great site and inspiring all of us to eat better and enjoy it! Wishing you the best on your telelvision debut!

  11. Anna @ The Guiltless Life says

    You’re going to be SO fab! The cookie pie is a great choice, I haven’t made it though so I don’t know how quick and easy it is to make but I know everyone loves it! I know your chocolate fudge pie would be super easy to make and impressive, and your cookie dough dip would probably go over a treat too!

    Don’t worry about public speaking – just be yourself and pretend it’s just you and the interviewer there. And if you can get it on YouTube so we can all watch! 🙂 x

  12. Kristie says

    Congratulations! That is so exciting. 🙂 This sounds like a great recipe to use. I’d go with what other people said about what to wear: solid colors. Partly, that way people can see what you are doing with your hands- an old secret of sign language interpreters. And I would add- wear something comfortable that makes you feel confident and happy. 🙂

  13. Robin says

    Congratulations! If they put it online, please post a link so the rest of us can see it. So happy for you! Don’t be nervous – just remember that YOU ROCK and we think you are fabulous!

  14. Marge says

    Congratulations Katie! Just remember to breathe…you will be awesome! Hope you can post a link to the segment so we can all watch?
    Love your blog and recipes, have been following for awhile now. Your posts always bring a smile. Take care!

  15. Kim says

    That’s so cool! Can you put it on YouTube so all of us can watch it? Then I think you need start your own YouTube cooking show 😉 Congratulations!!!

  16. Barefootcookingirl says

    Oh, please put a link to it on your blog! We all want to see it!

    I just made the pizza hummus yesterday. I was awesome!

  17. The Better Baker says

    OHMYGOODNESS!!! How exciting for you…I can’t imagine why it hasn’t happened sooner. =) I use to be mortified of speaking in front of groups, but then when I was asked to…I learned the empowerment that knowing someone has enough faith in you to think you can do it…and I learned to love it! I relax by beginning with a couple of funny stories (that may not be your option on tv!) and it gives me time to swallow the lump in my throat, and I am off and running. You have sooo much good knowledge and wisdom to’ll do just great! Congrats!!!

  18. Rebecca "Fit4sure" says

    I’m so THRILLED for you!! Your blog has inspired a ton of creativity in my own kitchen as I’ll see something and think…”I wonder if I can do this with ???” You’ll RoCk on air!! When, where…I wanna see!!

    I’ve done public speaking (as an Ambassador for a weight loss company) but nothing on “air”. I always got nervous before but once I started…it was a piece of cake…with chocolate of course!!

  19. Michelle says

    I live in Fort Worth so let us know when the feature will air so I can set my DVR!

    Oh and total coincidence but I had a dream last night that I was making your pizza hummus and used a whole can of garbanzo beans instead of just the 1/2 cup called out in the recipe and freaked out because I thought I had ruined the batch. But that’s all I remember so I don’t know how it turned out in the end. Totally random! lol 🙂

  20. Erin says

    Ah, Katie that is so exciting! I wish I lived in Dallas and could watch it. Once it comes out as a video form (maybe like on the news’ website), could you post it on here? 🙂 You’ll be great! Don’t worry about it and it will just come naturally.

  21. Kimberly says

    Do you think you can make this the night before? (If someone already asked this, you don’t have to answer, I’ll look up at the comments after I write it) Because this would be the BEST way to start my morning and I’m just too crunched for time getting to work.

    As for fashion, I am a fashion teacher! I would recommend something black or neutral, because it will put the focus on your face. Do you have an outfit that makes you feel like you can rule the world? Wear that. You’ll be comfortable and you wont waste energy worrying about it while you’re on camera.

    Good luck!!! How exciting.

  22. Amanda W. says

    For my first comment ever on your blog, I want to say CONGRATS!!!! And I wholeheartedly support your recipe choice to share. That is the perfect recipe to show off how amazing your recipes are. It’s how I first found you (through Pinterest). That recipe never ceases to amaze my family and friends when I make it. Keep up the good work! I hope you’re able to share the video when it’s all said and done. I’m sure there are a lot of us who would love to see it. Good luck!!

  23. Val says

    Congratulations Katie! That is so awesome. I’m sure you’ll do great.
    I hope they put the your interview online. I would love to see it. And I have made your deep-dish cookie pie. It is amazing!
    Public speaking, not my favorite. But I’ve done it for issues that are very important to me, like health and veganism.

  24. Ash says

    Congrats!!! I only recently discovered you (via pinterest) and your recipes look great. I can’t wait to try them. You’ll do great, best of luck to you!
    Public speaking isn’t my forte, I think I manage to pull it off well enough (at least I think so) but inwardly I am in total freaked out mode.
    As for dressing, nothing over the top. I think one key bright piece will make a nice outfit have a pop. Perhaps a bright blazer or cardigan. You’ll look great no matter 🙂

  25. Rana says

    This is great! How exciting! I’ve seen you here in a blue sequined top, not sure if you still have it, but it sure made your eyes pop. Best of luck, breathe and enjoy!

  26. Jennifer says

    Congratulations! TV–that is so exciting!

    And you breakfast looks delicious–peanut butter and banana oatmeal is one of my favorites!

  27. Emily @ Glitz Glam Granola says

    Oh my gosh, I’m so, so excited for you!! What a wonderful opportunity and you totally deserve it! You create the most amazing recipes and I’m glad you get to share them with the tv-viewing world! I’ve always been comfortable with public speaking and was in plays growing up and then was in Speech and Debate and Moot court in high school! I’m with you, figuring out what to wear is the hardest part! I’d go with something classic and if you are going to be cooking you could wear a cute apron!

  28. ~Nilu~ says

    My first comment on ur blog..
    Congratulations on this splendid TV opportunity!! I was on tv for an icecream commercial. While shooting, they said it’s only an audition.. so naturally I wasn’t very nervous. But as it turned out, they used the audition footage for the commercial. oops! My tip is to wear 3/4 length sleeves… easier to work with, in a kitchen.
    I can’t wait to make your deep dish cookie pie! I hope you can suggest a workaround for the 1.5 C brown sugar. That will make the pie completely healthy. 🙂

    • Melissa says

      I use Nunaturals stevia baking blend. You can go cup for cup but I’ve found I get no stevia taste if I use half the amount. It’s still plenty sweet enough!

      I tend to halve the recipe and use about 5-6 Tbs of baking blend.
      That stuff is *awesome*. Nunaturals is the only stevia brand I like – no icky aftertaste.
      I use it for everything – homemade vegan frozen yogurt, ice cream, baking, etc. 🙂 I even used half baking blend and half powdered sugar recently to make a really tasting frosting.

  29. Janie Kaiser says

    Congrats Katie!!! I’m not in the area but would love to see the segment so I hope that’s possible! Good luck. I’m sure you will find something fabulous to wear!

  30. Bridget says

    I’m actually going to be on tv next week too! Just the local morning show, but I’m still nervous about what to wear too! I went shopping last weekend and completely struck out. My fashion-y friend told me that she’s heard you should stick to solid colors rather than stripes or patterns when you are on tv, but that you should go with a nice, bright color like a blue or green or red. Does that help? Have fun!

  31. jo @ including cake says

    So exciting….looks like the next big chapter in your life/career is just around the corner. Embrace it and simply be you! (p.s i am also rubbish when it comes tp fasion so i will refrain from offfering any advice other than be comfortable so you don’t end up ‘fiddling’!)

  32. Averie @ Love Veggies and Yoga says

    Congrats on the news story! That’s awesome and I know you’re going to do fabulously! Wear whatever makes you feel comfortable and at ease just do your thing! 🙂

  33. Eric Jaffa says

    Please record the broadcast (or get a friend to) and then you can figure out how to post the video later.

    A DVR would be the best way to record, but a VCR would be OK if a DVR isn’t available.

  34. Faith @ For the Health of It says

    Congrats on the segment – that’s so exciting!

    I’m actually really comfortable with public speaking – I never saw why it was so scary. God gave me a big ol’ mouth that never shuts, might as well use it!

  35. Alexis @ A New Art History says

    Wow Katie Congratulations!!!

    Will people outside of Dallas be able to watch the show? Maybe in a couple of days on You tube or something.

    And it’s not silly to be nervous about what to wear. I would be too!

    As for me, never been on TV. I was in the newspaper once though… in the 5th grade, since I was part of a project (writing and putting on a play, actually) which won a local competition.

    Break a leg, as they say

  36. vogelstar says

    Funny I had banana peanut butter oatmeal for breakfast today but I snuck in a few chocolate chips.
    As for what to wear, I say wear something you are comfortable with because the last thing you want to do is fret over your shirt riding up or something like that. Simple but classy.

  37. Amber K says

    Congratulations – that’s awesome! I would be freaked because I HATE giving speeches or talking to a group of people in general. Definitely something for me to work on. Hope I can see a video of it somewhere 🙂

  38. Albizia says

    Congrats! Now even more people will learn about this chocolate wonderland 🙂 . But I am a real social disaster who hates presentations more than anything so I can’t give any advice. Just be yourself. People will like you for who you are.

  39. Jenny@HealthyMOChick says

    Congrats that’s awesome Katie!!! I think you should make the most chocolate coma inducing recipe you have 🙂

  40. Tierney @ Get Your Veg On says

    Congrats on your TV appearance! That’s so exciting!

    If I were in your place, I’d err on the side wearing something simple and comfortable. You will be nervous enough, so you don’t want to be thinking about messing with your outfit or potential wardrobe malfunctions! With that being said, using something that’s brand new and hasn’t yet been tested probably wouldn’t be the best idea. I would definitely go with something tried and true that you feel GREAT in.

    Good luck!!!

  41. Katie @ Nutrition in a peanut shell says

    Oh my goodness congratulations Katie! You should definitely post the video! Or is it available via National TV?

  42. Erin says

    That is sooo exciting, Katie!! I know you will be great 🙂
    My fail safe dress-to-impress outfit is a cute cardigan, jeans, and boots. I feel like it looks like you are trying to look nice without trying too hard. I guess your outfit might also be dictated by the weather…

  43. natalie @ southern fit foodie says

    HOW EXCITING!!! You definitely deserve it! Just think of how many people will see that HEALTHY can be DELICIOUS!!!!!!! Awesome opportunity – I am so pumped for you!

    I am a teacher, so I’m comfortable in front of a group. I teach 7th graders, but then I also teach dance classes (zumba, cardio dance, hip hop, abs) for adults, and I enjoy both. I was invited to speak earlier this year at a university about classroom management. At first I was nervous, but I really enjoyed it! They asked me to come back this semester for another seminar, and I’m thinking of trying to get my name out there to work with other universities. 🙂

    You’ll be great!!!

  44. jackie says

    Are you sick of the congrats yet? If not, congratulations on this great opportunity to to strut your stuff. I’m sure that you’ll be great. Go get em Katie!

  45. Kristie says

    You GO Girl! That’s pretty much the most exciting thing EVER. And you will obviously rock it! I’d be SO nervous, I’m definitely not a presentation/perform in front of people kinda gal so being on TV would pretty much be terrifying for me. It just seems SO perfect for you though. And you picked an amazing recipe to showcase. Oh yes I’ve tried it. Oh yes it disappeared in a day. SO so good. And this PB Breakfast Pudding is going on my breakfast to-make list right now too. I totally forgot about your blended oats technique, I used to do that a LOT after I first found out about it from you but it flew off y radar over time… I’m so excited that you reminded me. And so excited for you on TV! Please oh please get a clip to show us 🙂

  46. Kathy says

    Eek! Good luck on the show!! :]

    I have just about no fashion sense, lol. But I hate speaking in a public group because I am naturally a really quiet person. I remember when I moved to another town when I was starting 5th grade. The desks weren’t in groups or next to each other and I barely talked for 2 whole weeks! (a group of people even started calling me, ‘the girl who never talks’) then the teacher put the desks into groups of 4 or 5 and then I started to become more social.

  47. Colleen says

    Ooops, meant to comment here! Congratulations, Katie!! That is so cool and amazing! You totally deserve it and will be AWESOME!! See, that cookbook is going to be coming around — a best seller for sure! Have fun, and enjoy what is sure to be your first of many interviews, TV appearances! This just makes me smile 🙂 You are such an inspiration!! Thank you again for all that you do!!
    With love, Colleen

  48. Tammy W says

    Katie congratulations! Wow we are close geographically, Cool! I wanted to ask you something….

    I decided tonight to get healthy. I have been wanting to for a while now but. I have been “Pinning” on Pinterest and surfing Foodgawker and I have come to know so many great blogs like yours here. I am going to get healthy. I am going to blog it too (then I will have to go through with it right?? I want to get other people in on this. I don’t want to do it alone.

    Six years ago exactly I was a 38 year old, mom of four who wore a size 6!! I just decided a few moments ago that I would ask other bloggers to help me encourage others to join me getting healthy. You are in terrific shape, that is how you have inspired me. I have been reading your recipes and know I can do this!

    Would you be willing to do some guest posts for me and help me encourage others to follow and get healthy together. I am a working mom of six, busy busy. There isn’t much time for the blogging but I want to encourage others to get healthy. If I can make the time to do it anyone can.

    If you’d be interested in collaborating email me at svrmomof6 at gmail dot com. This isn’t sponsored and there is no financial profit, lol. I just have a blogspot blog…. just a mom wanting to get healthy.

    • Chocolate-Covered Katie says

      Hi Tammy,

      Your blog is beautiful… I love the pink :). And the cupcakes!
      I have a few other guest posts I need to work on, so I’m swamped at the moment. But please feel free to use any of my photos if you wish. Maybe later in the year I can find more time… if only there were 5000 hours in the day, right? 😉

  49. Lisa Jo says

    This looks delicious. I’m on tv a lot. Usually wardrobe likes jewel tones especially purples and blues. Avoid red or white and don’t wear a lot of black. Avoid prints and a little layering usually is nice. Wear accessories but nothing too crazy. Earrings look nice. Good luck and have fun!

  50. Lauren says

    Hi Katie, congratulations and break a leg — or, should I say, break an egg! BTW, I don’t think breakfast is too early for a light sprinkling of miniature chocolate chips, do you? Just seems a shame to leave out the chocolate if you’re going to have peanut butter. I’ll let you know how it goes, but it is safe to predict that my 9 and 12 year old sons won’t be complaining (nor will I!) about breakfast tomorrow.

    • Chocolate-Covered Katie says

      Haha I actually *did* add chocolate yesterday! I throw in some Dagoba 100% chocolate when it’s still warm, and the chocolate gets all melty.
      I think I need to edit my post to include chocolate. Thanks for the suggestion!! 🙂

  51. BroccoliHut says

    What a fabulous recipe! I love anything that is pudding-like (hence my love for oatmeal and thick smoothies).
    I completely dread speaking in front of groups. I’ve gotten much better after having done it frequently throughout grad school, but it still gets me anxious. Surprisingly, doing video blog posts has also helped a lot!

  52. Shaina says

    That’s so exciting they’re doing a story on you! Congrats!!! You picked a deliciously awesome recipe to showcase… it sounds amazing, I’ll be trying that sometime! Hope it all goes well!!!!

  53. Rachel says

    Congrats!!! How exciting!!!!
    In terms of recipes, a lot of people hate oatmeal (not me-but so many people I know do!) so maybe make another dessert like your famous cookie pie?

  54. Stephanie says

    That is so exciting! I’ll have to tell my Dallas friends to watch it for me! As for what to wear? With your personality and warmth I hardly think you need to worry about it! Your smile is gonna charm everyone 🙂 Good luck, Girl!

  55. Alicia @healthyhomemade says

    Congratulations! I’m so excited for you. 🙂
    I absolutely love peanut butter and banana oatmeal!

  56. Kristy says

    Congratulations! It’s about time the rest of the world knows what we all do, your recipes are amazing. I’ve yet to find one that I don’t like 🙂

  57. Janice says

    Hi! Do you know what is the name of the channel that it is going to be on? I live in the Columnia area of South Carolina! 😀

  58. Kristie says

    I have to steer away from oats and peanut butter, but I’m going to try this today with cooked brown rice and sunflower nut butter. Thanks for another delicious idea!

  59. Lauren @ Oatmeal after Spinning says

    Congratulations- and how cool!!! You’ll have to post a link to it if we can see it online!!
    The oatmeal pudding looks awesome, and very similar to how I make my oatmeal. I add in egg whites too, because I love that custard-y flavor.
    I’ve gotten really good at talking in front of a group, because I’m a teacher and have to do it every day. Piece of cake now- but it wasn’t always that easy!

  60. Gloria says

    Congratulations! I’m sure you will do very well. I’m looking forward to seeing it 🙂 I hate public speaking, hate it with a passion :/ haha

  61. Dana says

    Bravo! We need more good news like you getting on the news! You’ll be fabulous. Everyone remembers their first time;-) I’m an executive coach and work with folks on executive presence–the trick is ENERGY–which you have oozing out of your photos, so no worries. A tip from an old movie–tuck the back of your shirt or dress down into the seat when you sit down (or tuck it into your shirt or pants), it helps remind you to sit up straight so the camera can focus on your beautiful face. Break leg!

  62. Jentry Nielsen says

    Congratulations Katie! That is so exciting!!! Can’t wait to watch it! 🙂
    I am sure you will do great! A healthy cookie pie, who wouldn’t love that! You should go with that one!!!

  63. caroline says

    hi Katie! just wondering, what happened to your cinnamon roll recipe? did you delete it? I love it, but I forget how to make it, and I know that for a while you were having some issues with your pages.

    • Chocolate-Covered Katie says

      Are you using google chrome? Apparently people using that browser can’t see the page… I don’t know why :(. Please do let me know if that’s the browser you’re using! I’m trying to figure out clues as to why it’s happening.

          • caroline says

            I’m so sorry, katie, I did and to no avail!! If it’s a lot of work (with this tv business, you’re probably rather busy!) you don’t have to worry about e-mailing it to me. I wish you the best of luck with all your tech problems!

  64. Beth @ Tasty Yummies says

    1) This pudding looks so incredible, I can’t wait to try it out.
    2) Congrats on the upcoming TV feature. That’s so awesome. Ironically I got an email earlier this evening (this isn’t nearly as cool but…) to speak on a local panel about food, cooking, food blogging and social media to a local organization. I have spoken at quite a few different universities across the country about design and illustration, I have made pitches to large agencies and clients about our work and have been interviewed by magazines and filmmakers, but somehow talking about food and a passionate hobby still kinda makes me nervous. Being in front of people and talking can be hard, knowing your being filmed or recorded can make it even more nerve wracking (IMO), but I promise, once you get going and can take a few deep cleansing breaths, it will feel totally natural and then you will never want it to stop. At least that has been my experience. Good luck, can’t wait to hear more about it.

  65. Joss says

    mmm that looks delish. Good luck with the tv thing! I have been following your blog forever and you totally deserve it 🙂 (formerly of jocelyneatsfresh)

  66. Paula says

    Wonderful Katie … get your wings ready … your going to soar.

    I’m so happy I was on the PCRM 21 day challenge discussion board a while back, or I would have never found ya.

  67. Paula says

    Oh also, do ya think you would ever add a “printable version” to your recipes so that they are easy to print out?

  68. Kelsie Hoagland says

    Delicious! Totally making this for breakfast tomorrow 🙂

    Congratulations! You deserve it! You’re awesome 🙂

    I hate public speaking. I have to take a speech class for my major and I’m avoiding it like the plague! And I dread doing presentations.
    I used to be the Oregon Goodwill Ambassador for Muscular Dystrophy when I was a child and they would make my sister (who was also a Goodwill Ambassador) do all these public speaking evens, news paper articles, news interviews, the MD telethon. I did it for two years and hated it. I cried every time I had to do any of it (I was a very dramatic child). I don’t cry about public speaking anymore, but I do get some pretty sexy rosacea before I talk in front of a large group.

  69. Holly says

    ok, this is now my ultimate new obession! I have been eating it non stop and I cannot thank you enough for sharing such a DELISH recipe 🙂 And congratulations on the tv story!!

  70. Damiel says

    Hey, Katie!
    This looks absolutely delicious! I’m just unsure of what T means. Tablespoons? Or was it supposed to be C for cups? I’m confused and hungry! Can you help me?

  71. Winnie says

    I’m excited to see your debut! I was already at work today when I saw your email about your TV appearance so I learned how to record remotely on my DirectTV! So when I get home tonight I will get to see your performance. Know you will do great! I love, love , love all your recipes and hearing about your life! God bless

  72. Andrea says

    I recently had my first TV stint as well. My husband is a sports anchor so he is used to being on camera. I asked him for some pointers… are a couple. Don’t look at the camera….look at the person talking to you, and remember it is just a conversation you are having. you are sooo talented you will be fine, besides you are passionate about what you are talking about so let others see that!

    Made this for breakfast today, but instead of a sweetener I did your “melted banana” thing – AMAZING! thank you for that tip, it’s super-delish. :3
    (Oh & I LOVE all the other recipes of yours I’ve made, can’t wait to try them all; keep it up lady!)

  74. Salena says

    Thanks so for much for sharing this. I made this for my kids as a snack this afternoon and they were practically LICKING their bowls, as was I! My bananas weren’t very ripe and I was low on Splenda sl I added some sugar-free caramel syrup that I use for my coffee. This was so delicious. I can’t thank you enough. Loving your blog. Thanks again!

  75. Shannon says

    Just made this after a morning weight training session and much to my boyfriend’s surprise it was delicious! Thanks for making eating right tasty, it’s so easy to get burnt out on healthy food!

  76. Megan says

    Hi, Katie! I found your blog the other day through another blog, “The Magpie’s Fancy,” and I now have your blog bookmarked on my computer! I, too, am a fellow blogger from “Crazy Dreamer” (although very amateur), and this recipe inspired me to write my own post about oatmeal and my own favorite recipe. As soon as I read this post I immediately called my mom to tell her that I was making dinner that night…I couldn’t wait to try it out! I linked your recipe from my blog and have been telling everyone I know to check it out. I love to cook and your blog has given me so many inspirations! I really love the style of your writing…it’s so fun and bubbly and uplifting, and there’s so many valuable tips not just on healthy living, but on life, too. Thank you for your honesty in your writing, you make it really easy to connect. As I was snooping around, I saw your post “My Big Decision,” and let me just say, I’m glad you chose not to give the blog up! I hope the interview was successful and I look forward to following your blog!

    ~Megan 🙂

    This recipe was high on my list after finding your blog 2 weeks ago, and I finally tried it today now that my bananas are ripe. So incredibly yummy, and an instant mood lift to erase my frustrating afternoon! I wanted to try making it without a blender/food processor (mostly because I hate washing it, but also because I’m using it later to make more German Chocolate Fudge Bites!), and happily it turned out just fine. I melted the banana and mixed by spoon with the PB, and after the oatmeal was finished I just stirred everything together instead of blending. Not as much like pudding as yours, but still delicious (and fewer dishes, hehe). I halved the recipe and it was still a huge serving! 😀

  78. Karen says

    YUM! I finally made this. What took me so long?? I used date honey to sweeten it and it turned out great!

  79. Amanda F says

    Yum, yum, yum! Thank you for helping me love oatmeal again. You have so many different recipes using it that I don’t get sick of it.

  80. Allie says

    The most important thing about dressing for TV is keeping it simple! Solid colors read much better than busy patterns and bright colors are always more flattering than tans or greys. (Yes, black is also always flattering, but colors make you pop!) Good luck!! 🙂

    • Alanna says

      Hehe — I know it’s easy to lose track (especially when you just find this site and start obsessively reading through recipe after recipe, as I did), but Katie was on TV almost two months ago. (c;

  81. Cindy says

    Katie, you are honestly a genius! I stumbled across your website last week and now I have to try all your recipes! It’s so incredible to find such delicious recipes that are healthy and easy. I just made this breakfast pudding this morning and can’t believe how delicious it is while still being good for me. Thanks so much for posting all of these recipes! You are really a gifted cook : )

  82. Alicia says

    This is delicious! I especially love the texture of the voluminous oatmeal. Have you ever tried sunflower butter? My fav combo currently is sunflower butter, melted bananas, cinnamon, and almond milk. Sometimes those sneaky chocolate chips jump in, too.

  83. Marie-Josee says

    Hi! absolutely love your blog, I’ve already tried some of your recipes, they are all soo great, but this peanut butter pudding is just perfect! I didn’t blen the oatmeal at all and add a bit of cinnamon, and it was just delicious and so easy to make, thanks for the idea!

  84. Liz says

    I just made this for breakfast, it was so delicious! Very rich and filling, I may leave out my 1 tablespoon of honey next time. Thanks for the awesome energy-boosting breakfast!

  85. Mary says

    This sounds amazing! Will applesauce work instead of banana?? I know I won’t get the same flavor, but would it help with the consistency? Thank you!!
    P.S. I lovelovelove your blog!

    • jess says

      Mary, if you try the applesauce, let me know how it works out! I can’t have bananas and that sounds like an awesome substitute!

  86. Lisa says

    Omg, I just made this with almond coconut milk and banana better n peanut butter. Amaze!!!! I would add chocolate chips but that’s going to start an all day chocolate affair which I can’t handle right now. I also took the other half of banana and “melted” it and mixed it in. Even better!!!

  87. Melissa BrownMelissa Brown says

    Thank you so much for coming up with such great recipes. I just made the pb oatmeal and…OMG…it is so yummy. I used 1 tablespoon Splenda brown sugar, organic powdered peanut butter and then a small handful of vegan carob chips. I am in the process of making a change in my food lifestyle and your website is definitely a big help! Thank you!

  88. Niki says

    Do you have any nutritional info on this or other recipes?? Thanks, I just found your blog from another blog ( I absolutely love her blog and I am falling in love with yours.

  89. Kari says

    I have recently discovered your website and can’t seem to stop exploring….and drooling! 🙂 You should sell a recipe book!!! We tried this for breakfast this morning and my kids were licking their bowls and I was helping! 🙂 This tasted like something that should be VERY bad for us!

    I used freshly made almond milk to mke the oats and it was so good!

  90. Sydney says

    Best breakfast EVER! I just recently found your site and love it! So many tasty looking recipes! I have so far made the 1minute chocolate cake with Reese’s pieces frosting, peanut butter breakfast pudding, chocolate cake batter milkshake, red velvet pancakes and brownie batter pancakes. YUM!

  91. Rebzgal says

    I do NOT like oatmeal….but I eat it for the health benefits. I made your peanut butter breakfast pudding this morning and WOW! This is the first time I have ever enjoyed my bowl of oats! They were amazing!

  92. Courtney says

    I had this oatmeal for breakfast this morning – Delicious! I had my doubts about blending the banana and peanut butter – I love bananas, but sometimes when they’re blended into things, it makes me feel like I’m eating something “banana flavored” which is not something I’m fond of. But this was great. I used coconut almond milk…yum! I think I’ll make a larger portion next time…I was genuinely sad when I got to the bottom of the bowl!

  93. Melanie says

    I’ve made this for breakfast the past three mornings! I think I’m addicted! I normally eat oatmeal with all the ingredients listed, but blending and cooking it with milk adds a whole new dimension. I’m excited to go to sleep at night so I can wake up and have breakfast! =)

  94. Amanda says

    This recipe is amazing! I am an oatmeal junky and am always on the lookout for new recipes. Had this for today’s breakfast and was blown away! I’m definitely going to try your other oatmeal recipes. I love being excited for breakfast:)

  95. Stephanie says

    I made this for breakfast this morning and it was so good, I can’t stop thinking about it! (And I’m not much of a banana fan, either. I’ll eat them, but I don’t love them. I couldn’t really even taste the banana in this, so that’s extra good for me! Hurray for the extra potassium!) Going to make it again tomorrow. 🙂 Thank you so much!!!!

  96. Andrea says

    Eating this right now, and it’s amazing! I am sure someone has probably tried this already and reported back, but just in case they haven’t I thought I’d point out a substitution. I didn’t have any bananas on hand (I know! Horrible! But all of the bananas at the store weren’t any good when I went shopping last.), so I subbed just under half a cup of unsweetened apple sauce and it’s still delicious. 🙂

  97. Pat says

    Loved you PBS oatmeal. I threw in a few chocolate chips, and all of a sudden, it became soo rich! I love your recipes and your mind! You are awesome!

  98. Eden says

    I just tried this recipe today & it was SOOO good! It’s been more than three hours & I am still full! And not an uncomfortable full either. Thank you so much for sharing your recipes. This is the first I’ve tried, but I am excited to try them all. 😀

  99. jess says

    Hi Katie! On the subject of breakfast, I am looking for a non dairy, unsweetened coffee creamer to replace my regular coffee cream addiction. Any suggestions? Of perhaps an idea for a new recipe for you! Lol
    Can’t wait to try the pudding! Also, if you can’t eat bananas, any substitution ideas?

  100. Aimee says

    Just discovered your blog today. I don’t like bananas. Can something else be used in place of them? I’m making your pb cookie dough cookies today…..can’t wait

  101. Eden says

    I have already commented on this, but I just have to say again how much I adore this recipe! I have this at least every other day for breakfast. I add two tablespoons of Wheat Germ before I blend it up & I top it with the remaining banana & chocolate chips. This is honestly the best breakfast ever.
    And it keeps me so full & I snack less through the day.

    I was reading through some of your other posts & saw you mentioned something about making a cookbook? How exciting for you! I can’t wait to buy it.

  102. jen says

    Thanks for making awesome recipes :] I make this a lot when I have oats around the house, and it can be a great breakfast, treat or believe it or not even dinner heh. Finally a blog recipe that tastes great! I always find recipes that look so delicious on other blogs and they don’t come out very good.

  103. Krista Buck says

    Just wondering where you got the spoon on the PB Breakfast Pudding page from? I would love to find a set like this!

  104. Erica says

    HEAVEN!! I am in HEAVEN, Katie!!! I was about to give up on oatmeal forever. Then I saw this post and the rest of your oatmeal recipes. I made this recipe this morning and I was shocked at the simplicity and deliciousness!! Thank you thank you thank YOU!! Can’t wait for your cookbook. 🙂

    • BakeMeABallerina says

      Make sure you check out Katie’s other oatmeal recipes in the oatmeal category of the recipe page!!!

  105. Shari says

    I just made this to take to work for breakfast tomorrow and it almost didn’t make it into the fridge… seriously I almost ate it tonight. Needles to say, breakfast will be extraordinary tomorrow and everyone at work will be jealous.

  106. Miss Lyss says

    Oh my goodness. This was delicious and thick and gooey and YUM!

    I subbed out the peanut butter and replaced it with PB2 and it came out wonderful. So filling and delicious. I’ll be making it again! Thanks Katie <3

    As for speaking in front of a group, I was in acting in High School and it literally kicked the stage fright out of me. It doesn't bother me at all~

  107. BakeMeABallerina says

    This was amazing! The only thing is that the calories came out higher: (peanut butter 95 + oats 150 + banana 50 + milk 80) =375. However this wasn’t really a problem… I am trying to gain but others might want to be aware 🙂

  108. BakeMeABallerina says

    Of course… these leads to so many new ideas:
    -Gingerbread pudding (blended cooked oats, no banana, and the spices used in CCK’s gingerbread cereal)
    -Nutella banana pudding (same as banana peanut butter pudding…just with Nutella instead)
    -Pony Pudding (1/4 cup rice cripies, 1/2 cup cooked oats, cinnamon, molasses)
    -Apple Pie Pudding (1/4 cup apple sauce, cinnamon, cooked oats, coconut butter)
    -Banana Bread Pudding (same as pb banana pudding just without the peanut butter and with walnuts)
    -the possibilities are endless!

  109. jenna says

    I made this for breakfast this morning… OH MI GOSH it was the best thing ive ever eaten! Thank you so much for sharing!

  110. Marisa Ruffolo says

    I just tried the peanut butter breakfast pudding (I used coconut milk), except I used cashew butter instead of peanut butter. All I can say is: WOW! It was sooooooooo good! Even my 17 year old son, who normally doesn’t like oatmeal, liked this. I also added frozen cherries to mine, and I didn’t blend it at all (I like “chewy” also). The banana added so much sweetness that I hardly needed to add any Stevia. I am so glad I found your website. Thank you!

  111. Martin says

    From what you wrote, it sounds like quitting running was a good move. Change is usually a good thing. Running will always be there if you choose to do it again. I am hooked on your website and blog and look forward to your book. Have fun today Katie!

  112. katie says

    Please keep us posted as to when you will be on tv. I am in the DFW area and would enjoy recording your presentation. I enjoy your website and all your healthy recipes.

    Hi Katie

    Love your recipes! Keep up the great work. I like your story about giving up running too.
    You’re so pretty too!! The man that marries you will be the luckiest man on Earth…or any planet!

    Trying to find recipes for oatmeal in the morning because every time I make them, I dont enjoy it, or I just do not make a good pot of oatmeal. So ive been browsing things on google, and came across your website. Clicked on this recipe cause I love peanut butter and made it! this is amazing. thank you so much 🙂 I am going to keep comin back every morning for more recipe tryouts haha 🙂

    wonderful blog.

  116. Brandi says

    I didn’t bother with blending it to make pudding, but I really liked this recipe just as a peanut butter oatmeal for breakfast. I make it similar to your chocolate oatmeal with banana. Tastes yummy! Thanks for sharing!

  117. denise smith says

    I’ve been looking through these recipes and they look delicious. I print everything I think I would like to try. Problem is this, first I was in the “7 healthy desserts for breakfast”. When you go to the beginning of the article, there is a place on the side to print. Except it doesn’t print the recipe-you have to go to the next page for the recipe and there is no print button-at least that I’m seeing. If you print, you 20-40+ pages of comments-which do not want! Any suggestions?

      To print, highlight just the recipe itself and right-click “Copy.” Then open a new Word document and right-click “Paste.” You can give this file a name and print it as needed, then save it in a CCK Recipe folder for future reference.

  118. Marya says

    This. Was. Amazing. So gooey and filling and the perfect mix between banana and peanut butter. And I don’t even like oatmeal! Simply incredible.

  119. Brittany says

    I made this last night for my evening snack (subbed water for milk because I didn’t have enough) and it was SO delicious!! Call me crazy for eating oatmeal at night, but I’m hypoglycemic and the combination of complex carbs, protein, and healthy fats was PERFECT before bed to keep my blood sugar levels stable throughout the night! I loved the texture and the fact that it was not too sweet (I didn’t use any extra sweetener besides the banana). If you have any other recommendations for an evening snack/recipes you could direct me to, I’d definitely appreciate it! You rock! 🙂

  120. ariel says

    Delicious! I substituted Dark Chocolate Almond Milk which meant I didn’t need to add any sweetener. I substituted Sun Butter for the peanut butter & added a touch of dark chocolate chips & some uncooked oats, too; for the chewiness. It’s fantastic!! Thank you! BTW; I’ve got a Cappuccino Cloud Cheesecake currently cooling on my baking rack before the (moans) mandatory 6 hours chilling, lol!

  121. Vanitha says

    I tried this pudding this morning and it absolutely blew me away. I used coconut milk instead of almond and it tasted awesome. I loved the banana and peanut butter combination. Yuuuuummmmyyyyy…

  122. Tiffany L. Sheppard says

    Okay! So I am definitely going to try these PB oats! As far as what to wear is concerned; I’m an actress and each costume department has different tastes/goals but there are a few things most agree on: Stay away from patterns- they tend not to “read” well on screen. (I.e. small pinstripes can make you a blurry mess on screen.) Stick to solid, true colors. Also, avoid white-it reads “hot” on screen and can make you look as bright as the sun! My basic rule of thumb is to find something you love to wear. The more comfortable you are in your clothes, the more comfortable you will look on screen. Once you’ve decided what style you want, pick a color family that flatters your skin tone and then find the richest shade of that color. For example: I am olive skinned and look best in jewel tones. Olive green, Blues, and light pastels. Try to avoid a true green though, just in case there is a green screen. No one wants to be a floating head on TV! Good luck and congrats!

    • Tiffany LS says

      I feel like such a fool!! I didn’t read the post date before posting a comment. This was SO long ago! Either way, I’ll still try this recipe 🙂

  123. Shelly Yale says

    My advice, be yourself! That is the reason you are where you are today, you have so many followers! Smile a lot!
    You will be fine Katie, just talk to the camera like you “talk to us” on your blog.
    Now go out there and knock it out of the park!

  124. Debbie says

    This is delicious. I’ve made it several times and I’d say definitely use the full 2 tablespoons peanut butter. It’s quick, easy, and tastes great – can’t ask for more than that!

  125. Wilma D. says

    I found this recipe looking through SkinnyMom website and made it. It is divine!!!! I did add some dark choc chips, yum!! Thank you! Pinned

  126. Rebecca says

    My daughter and I have recently become vegans. We have tried many of your recipes including this one and I have to say that every one has been a true winner. Being huge dessert fans, we are so grateful for your website. Thanks for all you do Katie, and congrats on all of your success!!!

  127. Tracy says

    I tried this today.. it is delicious. To be honest I did not add sweetener or chocolate chips so I believe it is a great choice for those who follow a fodmap diet for digestive issues. I saw an oatmilk option and think I may try it when making this next time!
