Hi friends! How is this summer treating you? If you’re anything like us, you have little ones running the house. Things seem so hectic and crazy, but I wouldn’t have it any other way. During these busy days it’s nice to have a few good on-the-go recipes, and today we’re sharing an Oatmeal Breakfast Bites recipe that is just that! And it all starts with one of our favorite Quaker Oats products – Quaker Old Fashioned Oats.

Last month I announced that we’re going to be sharing some of our favorite Quaker products and recipes with you this year. It’s such a great fit for us because my family truly loves Quaker products. And there’s just so many ways to enjoy oatmeal year round. Last month we shared some Banana Nut Overnight Oats that are a great way to get your oats in during the summer months, and these Oatmeal Breakfast Bites are too!

The “batter” is simple – start with Quaker Old Fashioned Oats, baking powder, cinnamon and salt. Then add in some peanut butter, bananas, agave, vanilla and an egg and you have one delicious combo! Then what you add from there is totally up to you. For our bites this morning, we added some fresh chopped strawberries that are in season right now, and they were the perfect addition to our breakfast! If you’re adding fresh fruit, you’ll want to enjoy right away. But for our afternoon snack time, a few dark chocolate chips are always welcomed by my boys!

    These look absolutely delicious and I have all of the ingredients already! I will definitely be making these in the morning. Thanks!

    Would subbing almond butter for the peanut butter make a big difference in taste or texture? I’m allergic to peanuts but this looks tasty!

    Hi there. I found your recipe on Pinterest (my fave!). I just wanted to let you know that I made these yesterday for breakfast – I’m always looking for new things, especially that use oatmeal. These were great! Nice and filling, too. I liked them WAY better than any baked oatmeal I’ve tried. And I even forgot to add the honey, and they were still good. I made them half with frozen/thawed strawberries and half with dark chocolate chips. The fruit ones totally reminded me of pb&j. :) I am looking forward to experimenting with other fruit (I’m thinking other berries and maybe apples), and fun mix ins (like chia or hemp seeds). I would also add a little more cinnamon next time, but we love our cinnamon around here! Thanks for this recipe. I pinned it to a favorites board so I can make them again and again.

    Wow! I just mast these and they are delicious! Perfect for breakfast on the go. I don’t like chocolate and peanut butter together so I skipped the chocolate chips. My husband says they need it, but I think they are perfect the way they are!

      Oh so glad you liked them, Melissa! I preferred them with the chocolate chips but one of my sons liked the strawberries better! I think it’s nice that you can add whatever you’d like! 😉

    Just wanted to let you know that we love these cookies! I bake a large batch then freeze them for quick and easy school morning breakfast. So filling and yummy without extra sugar – definitely mom approved :) And my kids gobble them up! Thanks for a great recipe!

    Do we know how long the shelf life of these Lil guys are?
    I made mine with chocolate chip walnuts, and substituted peanut with almond butter. I love them, but it’s just me at home,and cannot eat them fast enough (literally). Just wondering when I just stop eating them?
