Peach Baked Oatmeal

As the days get cooler up North, I continue to explore new flavors of baked oatmeal. It’s nice to rewarm a bowl of tasty baked oatmeal for breakfast. It’s fast and healthy. I had ripe peaches to use and I imagined some fall spices: cinnamon, nutmeg and ginger. With some finely chopped pecans, I’d make peach cobbler oatmeal.

I had a huge container of old fashioned oats so I used the basic recipe for pumpkin pie baked oatmeal that was so delicious. I only had to change out the can of pumpkin with 2 cups of diced peaches.

Peel 2 large pieces and dice

In one bowl I mixed the oats, spices, salt and baking powder.

In a separate bowl I beat the eggs and milk then added the melted butter slowly as I stirred.

Finally I added the dry ingredients to the wet and stirred well.

I stirred in the peaches and poured the batter into a sprayed 9×13-in pan.

I sprinkled ½ cup brown sugar and the chopped pecans over the top and put the pan into the preheated oven.

I baked the oatmeal for 40 minutes, until a toothpick inserted in the center came out dry. After cooling for a few minutes on a rack I couldn’t resist tasting. The smell alone was amazing. The first spoonful was bliss. Spicy, fruity and slightly sweet, it WAS peach cobbler oatmeal.

I found myself regretting that peach season would soon be over but realized peaches can be found in the freezer section any time of year. I will definitely be making this flavor again. And again.

The oatmeal lasts for several days in the fridge.  I like to reheat it and eat it with milk some mornings, others I like to eat it cold with yogurt.
