  1. Yalkut Yosef (Klalei Sefer Brachot pg 208-214)
  2. Gemara Brachot 36b writes that everyone agrees that Daysa is Mezonot. Rashi (D"H Daysa) explains that Daysa is (a cooked dish) made from crushed up wheat. This ruling is implied from the Rif (Brachot 25b), Rosh (Brachot 6:7), and Rambam (Brachot 3:4) and codified by Tur and S"A 208:2. Therefore, The Laws of Brachos (Rabbi Forst, pg 272, and 374) and Halachos of Brachos (Rabbi Bodner, chap 27, pg 482) rule that oatmeal is Mezonot and Al HaMichya. Halachos of Brachos adds that even if one makes a meal (Koveh Seuda) out of oatmeal the bracha is still Mezonot.

  6. Shulchan Aruch 202:4 holding like most rishonim (on Gemara Brachot 35b) writes that there's no bracha on plain olive oil, while the Shaar HaTzion points out that the poskim don’t hold like the Rambam Brachot 8:2 who says that one should make Shehakol. Chazon Ovadyah pg 126 writes that this halacha is true even in our day. Mishna Brurah 202:27 writes that the same is true even if one does so in order to soothe one's throat. The Laws of Brachos (Rabbi Forst, pg 359-384) agrees.
  7. Shulchan Aruch 202:4 rules like the Bahag and Rambam unlike the Rabbenu Yosef that olive oil mixed with a lot of water cooked with vegetables and one isn’t having it in order to soothe one’s throat the Bracha isn’t HaEtz for the olive oil but rather Shehakol. The Mishna Brurah 202:43 and Shaar HaTzion 202:35 hold like the Magan Avraham (unlike the Taz) that even if there’s a majority of olive oil the Bracha is Shehakol.

Yalkut Yosef (Klalei Sefer Brachot pg 208-214) writes that if there's a discernible taste of the peanut, the peanut butter is HaAdama, otherwise it's Shehakol.
