I first heard about Tannie, creator of Second Helpings, because of her hand-crafted peanut butters. She sweetens them with honey and mixes in flavours like cacao, vanilla and coconut – and if you’ve ever tried it –  you’ll know why it’s called Second Helpings!

We connected on our love for food – and when she told me about her oatmeal bowls, drizzled with peanut-butter, topped with fresh fruit – forget about it! I was desperate to try it!

Tannie is just as lovely as her creations! She invited us into her shop, HIVE to show us how to make a Peanut Butter Oatmeal Bowl – so that we can all start the day feeling happy as a bee. I hope you enjoy this recipe as much as I have, which is more than I care to admit! ha!

Let’s look at the ingredients:

Second Helpings Peanut Butter Oatmeal Ingredients

This is less of a recipe and more of a reminder. A sweet reminder that oatmeal makes the best breakfast!

For slower mornings, you can make it hot and fresh in 15/20 minutes.

Or for a quick, on the go breakfast – make a big batch of oatmeal and serve it up into glass jars, with all the toppings. Store them in the fridge and it will last 4-5 days!

Peanut Butter Oatmeal Bowl Recipe

We topped our oatmeal with peanut-butter and fresh fruit, but you are the boss of your bowl – so choose toppings that you love! It couldn’t be easier to make, here’s how:


  • 1/2 cup rolled oats
  • 1 1/2 cups water
  • milk of choice


  • good quality peanut-butter (check out Second Helpings)
  • sliced banana
  • blueberries
  • raisins
  • … or what ever makes you happy


  • bring 1 1/2 cups of  water to boil
  • add in the oatmeal and cook for 10 minutes
  • once the oats are tender and  have absorbed most of the water, turn off the heat
  • blend in some milk – depending on how creamy/dry you like it
  • serve the oatmeal in a bowl ( or into individual jars ) oatmeal is equally good hot or cold!
  • place your toppings
  • enjoy!
